Waiter kept forgetting items and seemed distracted.

The restaurant was pretty empty due to the pandemic, hard to believe she couldn’t remember things

Nice and quiet with good social distancing. Food was good, drink menu was great (loved my caesar) and service was quick. We were there to celebrate my step daughters birthday (noted in the reservation & her birthday coupon was used) so a little disappointed as there was no attempt to make her feel special.

Way too cold ... temperature was so cold even our waitress was complaining.
I guess the owner likes it that way but even if the food and service were greath, we prefer to go to a place where it is comfortable.

So disappointed. Started with the loaded pull apart garlic bread. It was 4 knotted buns in a small ceramic frypan with barely enough toppings for each person to have some of each.
Mains came out and were not hot. Service was good. Social distancing was acceptable.

Been to Montana’s many times before but unfortunately this time was disappointing. When our food came one plate of ribs was hot and the other two were ice cold. The server offered to warm them up but they were Luke warm a second time. Spending $200.00 on a meal in a the bar you except hot food. I know the pandemic has caused problems but this was unacceptable .

Jenn is an amazing server. She made sure we got what we wanted and was attentive to our needs. We had an appetizer that was served hot, then our entree. The food was tasty and done to perfection. No complaints here. We will be back.

Our app (antijoles?) was cold, but we didn’t complain because it was fine, but the Mac and cheese main was terrible (no sauce at all, just plain noodles with some cheese and bacon laid on top) and we did complain and the waiter just said that he thought someone new made it, no offer to replace or comp even tho most of it went uneaten. Fish and chips was fine and donuts were good. Mentioned on Open Table it was my friends birthday but no mention in restaurant. Disappointing night overall.

We were treated very kindly on arrival and not a long wait. A new way of dining with rge CoVid 19 precautions but staff and guests adjusting. Waitress was excellent and except for one dirty glass which was replaced, we enjoyed our stay

The noise level was high...but we were outside on Lake Street. It didn't interfere with our dinner at all. They seem be covering all the bases with the CRAZY-19! We were comfortable and woudl return.

Food was good, but little things matter, like butter for baked potato and for the corn bread... drinks were good, but had to ask for water. Due to COVID, nothing was being cleared from the table until we were all done and ready to leave. This is very awkward when tables are not that big and there appetizer plates, empty glasses and such still on table when you get your meal.

Usually one of our favourite places to eat. This time, not so much. The service was slow. Thankfully the woman that seated us noticed we were still waiting and took our drink order and put our app order in. The manager came over a few mins later and said he would take the cost of the app off our bill and apologized for our wait. The waitress finally showed up and took our order. Both of our steaks were supposed to be med-well. Mine was slightly bloody and my husbands was bloody. Not a good visit for us. Will probably try again as we usually have a very good meal when we go.

The service was in a bit of a disarray on a Thursday night. I chose this restaurant to celebrate my anniversary and there were a lot of errors with our order. We ended up getting the wrong appetizer, wrong size steak which was also overcooked. Despite the hiccups, the food was great for the value.

Everything was excellent with regards to the meal, the server staff, and the ambience. The only drawback was something the facility did not have any control over. Some asshat parked their car directly in front of the handicap ramp. I was parked in the handicapped spot beside the ramp, did this obviously obliviously excuse of a person not stop to think we would be using the ramp?

The food was all right, they do t really do steaks well in my opinion. We ordered the special which was shrimp and lobster on top of the steak and mine had a “sauce” with it which was lobster bisque done with the lobster and the shrimp. Mine was all right, I passed most of mine off to my daughter as she did not like hers. My dad said his was “beautiful”; he had the steak and shrimp. We also had the garlic mashed potatoes and coleslaw which both were just ok. My daughter had the macaroni and cheese with bacon on top and a salad. She did not like this however, I found it to be one of the better Mac and cheeses I’ve tasted around here (niagara region). We shared the doughnuts, which was a mistake bc by the time I finished paying, there was one left for me. The toffee or caramel sauce was delicious and they were nice and hot which made the powdered sugar almost caramelize, maybe wait a moment before diving in. I also ordered corn bread to take home because we love their cornbread. If I’m being honest, it’s the only reason I agree to go here. My dad and I even suggested that the cornbread was better than the sea baked biscuits from RL. However, since this is blasphemy we also decided that we can compare apples and oranges because they’re both equally great!

Their plates really bothered me, are so big and the food put on them looks so small. The food is enough, don’t get me wrong but the plates don’t make it seem that way. Presentation wise, it looks like you’re getting ripped off. Also the edges of the plates make the plates look dirty but again that’s just me.
Finally our server, there really isn’t much to say except that she was great! She was very personable and friendly and helped us make some decisions.
Also, if you have scene points you can either redeem or collect right there. All you have to do is give them your card and they will deduct your points right there. The max you can use is based on your subtotal.
I hope some of this was helpful!!!

We enjoyed our get together with good friends in the cozy atmosphere. Most of us love ribs and looked forward to our meal, my husband especially. He has never, in 48 years sent a meal back. He was very dis appointed when he discovered that not only were his ribs nor warm but cold! Another 2 said that theirs were just barely warm but they ate them anyway. We all liked the menu and the choices that we made but cold features were a real disappointment.

Our waitress was fabulous! As soon as we sat down she informed us that it was happy hour and that it was ending soon so we were able to get in two rounds at the happy hour price! She was efficient and funny.
Was my fathers birthday and she got him to wear the Moose hat. She made our experience and evening all that much better. Thank you!
