The food was OK, steak was a bit tough at medium rare. Fresh donuts made up for it. Lots of students working tables and helpful enough they just didn’t come around too often to check up.

We were seated promptly and our server was with us us quickly. Her upbeat attitude put us at ease immediately. Our food arrived in perfect time and hot and delicious. We never felt rushed to finish our meal. Thanks!

Easy to find off the highway. A great menu for every taste, reasonable prices and attentive servers. Yes, recommended!

We all arrived on time and were sat graciously.
I wanted an aperitif (Cinzano or), but they have none.
We ordered and drank 2 bottles of wine - plus the girls had cocktails.
The server was extremely polite and we never felt rushed.
I ordered a steak ($29) med rare and it came that way, but was so tough I almost pulled my dentures out and became worried I might need the Heimlich maneuver as I struggled to get the meat small enough to swallow.
Eating out, I always order a Filet Mignon, but Montanna's doesn't have that and its always better to enjoy a steak even at $50 or so than spend 2/3 of that to get an inedible cow chunk of which 1/3 is fat.
Anyway, after looking at the dessert menu and ordering we were told NO desserts were available - so we just ordered coffee and one Irish.
It was great to be with my girls again after a 2yr hiatus due Covid, but I really think the restaurants should do better - after all, return business and good ratings are key to a reliable customer base.
We lost our table at a "fancier" restaurant because they booked a wedding, so Montana's wasn't a first choice. You get what's left with short notice and have to make the best of it, which we did.
I left a decent 18% tip for the service only as I am sure the people in the kitchen were either hired yesterday and working with minimal product; or were just happy to have a job.
For an eternity now, the excuse for every failure or shortcoming will be blamed on Covid. (Replacing 911 for the "go-to" reason to cover all client dissatisfaction).
I didn't make a recommendation here because the food wasn't good - and why else would you go to a restaurant?

Waited awhile for a waitress. Was ready to order by the time I was asked what we wanted to drink. Waited for awhile for plates to be removed and then for cheque. Waited awhile for dessert to be brought in togo container. It wasnt busy so I have no idea why we had to wait for service all the time.
The food was good !!

We enjoyed our visit to Montana’s. We were a little disappointed that due to a shortage of lemonade we were not able to try a Long Island ice tea. Over all our experience was great. The food and service was great and we enjoyed our 40th anniversary dinner🙂thank you

It was my first outing to a restaurant in over 1 yr. I took 2 of my grandaughters and my daughter-in-law(sweetest daughter-in-law in the whole wide world except for the other 2). We had a fabulous time. weather was great as well as the food and the lovely server. I can hardly wait to go back! Bravo!!!!!

Since montanas only started selling back ribs, they're always dry, every time. I'd prefer a pack of pre-cooked frozen ribs from the grocery store.

Even though the whole patio was open, they sat us right close to the only other people on the patio.

Once our meal was served there was an extremely loud family with kids they sat right beside us, the kids were screaming and screeching the entire time. We had to speak loudly to hear each other in normal conversation until we left.

We had a reservation and when we showed up they claimed to not be taking reservations. All the tables were full and we had to wait. I asked for a specific area to get if we had to wait for a table to become free anyway, and the girl said that nothing would be open over there for a long time… as soon as we got seated everyone left and all tables in the area I was wanting were now free. Service was very slow and everyone seemed extremely disorganized. I made a reservation, was even asked to confirm the day before if I was still coming, and apparently that never existed.

Food was mostly great. Main portion on both plates was fantastic, although the ribs were a little dry with not enough sauce, but some of the sides were lacking. Cornbread was hard as a rock, and my wife's side Caesar salad was almost entirely stem pieces - next to no green in it. She asked to take it off the bill, so the extra charge for the upgraded side was removed, but there was no offer to replace it with something else, so she ended up having her meal without a side at all.

When we booked it, we were asked if there was a special occasion, and I clicked an anniversary, as we were celebrating 20 years that night. I didn't bring it up during the meal, but I'm curious why it's even asked on the reservation page, as it wasn't mentioned once during our evening. Not a big deal, but it just seemed to add to the little things we experienced.

This was our second time in the last few months trying Montana's. The first was a disaster, and while this time was much better, and what they did well was terrific, there are still too many little issues for the price you pay. We will likely not go back.

This was our "first" restaurant visit since the onset of Covid-19. We had a great meal and it was the perfect place to take our young grandson. We had so much fun and I could not eat all the good on my plate (the chicken wing and rib combo is a soooooo good!). We will definitely return soon

Been to this location many times and never had an issue. Tonight, our party of 6 had 3 meals returned. The manager brought us our new meals after the rest of the party had finished theirs and never said a word to us. I found it bizarre that he never said anything or apologize to us. Instead the bill came and they took 50% off those two meals. I didn’t find that an acceptable solution.

Fantastic meal, as always at this location, unlike others. The hand carved steak was delicious and cooked perfectly. It was accompanied with garlic mashed potatoes, Caesar salad and a corn muffin. Delicious. My husband had the same with the exception of a baked potato. Service was pleasant and efficient and the food was perfect.

It was fun, we just went at the last minute because we couldn't get into the Keg. Not that we go there very much, so we tried Montana's. It was a good experience, food was good, loved our waitress. We noticed the place was full, now that's a sign of "good business". We will be back, we live in the area. Tks, Wendy.

We had an excellent experience as always. Absolutely the best burgers around and we always go back for the firecracker burger. Have been to other similar restaurants and their bacon cheeseburger is not very flavourful and using "plastic" wrapped cheese squares which you can taste. Gross. Fantastic server and delicious food every time! Thank you!

The ability to place the table was made easy by the web interface. The location was very busy but still enjoyable. You can still hear the conversation you are having at your table even when the place is full. Ordered the Steak Flat Bread for Starter and the Chipotle Fire Cracker Burger with Fries for Dinner and Stella for a Drink. All food Items were warm well seasoned and well presented. Server was very friendly.

Awful. Worst meal ever. Food was cold. Fries were half cold and half warm and tasted like vinegar. Wife ordered a starter Cesar salad. Never came. She asked where is was as her meal came and was told they forgot. They did comp her a salad but forgot the dressing.
Her meal was chicken and shrimp. Arrived cold . I got the sampler. Omg. Ribs were warm, dried out and bland. Smoked beef? Was Shriveled and just warm. The sausage was hot but looked like it came out of a nuclear reactor. The pulled pork? Looked like that shaved sandwich meat you get in a bag at No Frills, and was cold like it just came out of the fridge . The bread was hard . What may have been the manager was holding up the corner of the bar , blabbing non stop to the poor bar tenders about his next trip. Blah blah blah.... needless to say , we won’t be coming back.

We had Ben as our waiter, he didn't know what kind of ceasars there was. When receiving our food mashed potatoes were cold.Ben never came to the table upon receiving the food to ask how everything was, had to flag him down. Drinks were never topped up, had to flag him down for a takeout container then seemed confused when he gave it to us, questioned himself on whether he should take our plates, again had to flag him down for our cheque. Took a very long time for him throughout the meal. He should probably be retrained or simply find another job. Never looked like he wanted to be there at all.

Mentioned in our Reservation it was a birthday celebration...no reference while we were there.
$178.00 bill for 3 kids/2 adults and hubby went to the bar to get his own coffee(orderd)...charged $3 for it still....
2 steaks ordered were cold, 1 not done per ordered...think waiter didn't hear it right..should confirm orders.
Maybe should put sides on a plate instead of plastic ? Ceaser salad in a plastic takeout? Not going there anytime soon.
