    I've been going to Montana's since the restaurant opened. The food is great, service exceptional and the decor of the place is right up my alley. It's a really great family restaurant for a get together. Wether it's supper after work, an anniversary or birthday. Montana's is a great place to grab a bite.

    I had the southern fried chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries it was delicious and very filling. One of my friends had a 7 oz steak and fries and the other had chicken fajitas. They both equally satisfied with their meals. Our waitress was Cindy and she quick and friendly.

    Very disappointed. Our steaks were not cooked the way we wanted. My son ate most of his but when the server asked how mine was I told her and showed her that mi e was more medium rare than medium well done. She offered to take it back to cook some more but when it got back to me my side dish was cold and my other two party member had finished their dinner. This was our Christmas dinner gift from a family member so it was especially disappointing.

    When we arrived at the restaurant, they could not locate our reservation. It had somehow already been seated. Our table was not great (right next to the front door). The potato was undercoooked.

    Food was not up to their usual standards. Both my wife and Father in Law ordered the Fajitas and the chicken was charred and over cooked. Other than that the food was okay, service was decent but the thing that will probably keep us from going back was the mouse that ran past our table. Yup, a mouse....My wife and mother in law both commented that they will never go back....

    Service was great. Unfortunately when I received my steak I had order medium but it was well done. We had to wait another 15 minutes or so for a new steak to be cooked.

    Food was prepared excellent!!! Staff was super friendly and observant!!! You can tell they enjoy working there!!! Very expensive for just the two of us with no alcohol drinks. We ordered two steak dinners with root beer to drink. Bill was 105.00 plus tip. But we did still enjoy the evening. What isn't expensive today anyway. Sometimes you just have to go for it!!!

    Food order arrangements were not smooth the we had to wait for too long. The manager came with a bill discounted for our starter but no apology for the delay. I felt bad for the server because he was too busy to look after customers. When the main courses have arrive, they are not hot anymore (libster potato, onion rings,) and barely warm (steak and rib).

    Steaks weren't cooked as ordered asked for medium well got rare French fries were soggy and cold the waitress addressed our concerns which meant we were waiting close to an hour for our meal when the meals game out the steaks still weren't cooked as requested. This is the second time in a row we have gotten meals that weren't correct
