Was very pleased with menu option choices for kids. Portion sizes were reasonable for cost of each item. Taste and variety was very good. Service was a bit slow. Would have preferred to get kids meals served first, if possible. On the whole, a great experience. We will be back again!

This restaurant needs a few lessons in customer service from the hostess to the waiters to the evening manager.

Our experience wasnt great. They were all out of at least 4 things we asked for one of our drinks got spilled all over our table by our waitress and the food wasnt very good. All you can eat ribs is what two of us ordered and the first rack was pretty good the second was like a burnt stale porkchop.

I ordered the baby back ribs but was served side ribs and because we were in a rush I didn’t bring it up - my bad. Coleslaw was soggy and flavourless. Server was awesome.

I WAS THERE IN MARCH 4 OF US. Food , drinks , absolutely nothing to complain about. So I decided to go there for my BIRTHDAY! The men had ribs, they were very good. I had a steak with baked potato which was not even warm enough yo melt the butter on top! My steak was not hot either. I did eat some of it but it got volder so I quit

IF THERE IS ONLY THING THAT REALLY GETS ME IS COLD COLD FOOD. I did not complain my husband gets angry with me if I do. But did agree it was not HOT.

I WILL NOT BE BACK!!

I don't go out often for a meal - once a month my friend and I take turns choosing a location for dinner (we both use canes now) so the restaurant has to be accessible. I have to say Montana is one of my favorites and, not having a BBQ at home, especially enjoy the selection of beef plates. The Staff were great, as usual.

The food was ok, I have to say I love going there with the family. They were out of most beers on tap, had to settle for a flat Coors Light. Anyways the portion was smaller than usual on the beef bone steak and my wife’s steak was more blue than medium rare. I won’t give up going there it could of been just a bad night for the store.

Two of us had to send our steaks back. The rib order was really tough. Even when we got our steaks back, mine was mainly gristle and fat so I couldn't eat it. Other than that, it was not overall good at all. Won't rush back.

Good service and food choices. Have not been to Montana’s for a while as our last experience fell below expectations for service, so good to see an improvement.

Our food, service was all great!
We had made a memo with our reso that it was a buisness meeting and we needed a little extra room for paperword/note taking, we ended uo being a 6top instead of 6, and the server eanted to put us in a 6top booth. Just a little too squishy when trying to discuss with team members! We felt really awkward asking for the larger table, but we did and were happy that she didn’t mind moving us over!
My only suggestion is when there’s a note like that, just keep us at the big table from the start.
Everything was great though, server was friendly, quick and efficient. Food was good, hot, and fast! We will be booking more meetings down there! :) thanks !

Food in general was fairly mediocre. Macaroni cheese seemed grossly overpriced for what it was. Yam fries and dip were good but chicken tacos were cold and bland. My husband’s fries were cold and not cooked properly.

Waited over 1 hour for our food. Was extremely loud and French fries arrived cold. Seemed like they were short staffed.
Overall, was an “OK” experience.

To be honest my wife and I enjoyed the food very much and our specific waiter wasnt bad he just wasnt present. The atmosphere was crazy, there were so many open tables and so many people waiting.
The new waitresses were is chaos which gave myself and my wife anxiety. A waitress brought us the wrong food twice and when she brought the right food she dumped coleslaw in my lap lol.
We watched a couple get seated right after us and they walked out because no one had seen them yet for even drinks.
I have been here several times and never had a night like that.

Despite the restaurant being less than half full, communication between staff members was poor. Seated for 10 minutes, there was no sign of a server. The hostess came back to our table to ask us if our server had come by. We gave our drink, and meal order to the hostess. 5 min later server came by to ask us for our drink order.
More than 45min later food was served. Can't imaging the food delay, had the restaurant been full.

Our server must have been new because she seemed pretty confused. We ordered a bottle of wine, and when she brought it over she had no idea what to do with it. She said she had no idea how to deal with the bottle. I think Montana's should spend some time to train their servers in simple things like pouring wine.

For all you can eat ribs, don't expect a full rack to start with. We each got 6 bones. For the next round we were down to 3 and 4 bones each and for the third, 3 and 4 again. We could have eaten more, but it was taking a while to get the each round and we had other things to do.
Service was better than last time we were here, but still slow. Drink refills were really slow. At least there was no wait (with empty tables on the floor) this time.

Overall not bad. I had to return my Cobb Salad as the chicken was so dry I couldn't get my fork in it, hardly any cheese and way too much lettuce for a $17.00 meal. Our server was fantastic and did not charge me for it as I didn't eat it. The potato skins were burnt and again tough to eat. They were out of Tonic Water and had to choose something else to drink. In saying that, one of my colleagues had steak and the other had ribs. Both said it was one of the best they have had. I liked the ambiance, it wasn't too noisy but there weren't many people there as it was an odd time. I would recommend Montana's to friends but tell them to be careful what they ordered.

All in all an ok meal

Server was super busy and we didn't get much attention. I wrote birthday on the reservation and no one mentioned it to us. I tryed to wave her down to talk to her and got tired of attempting. By the time we got our bill I was just ready to leave. She also didn't ask us how our food was. Maybe have more people of staff and customers will get better service.

I love the ribs, and also the service - although there have been times when we have been left standing at the reception desk and no-one bothering to attend - but when we reserve using Open Table the service seems much better!

Quite often the restaurant seems to run out of baked potatoes, and we have been told at times, even at 6:30 pm, that there are no baked potatoes, and there won’t be any for a long time!

But usually our experience has been very positive. The food is great, the service even better!

The restaurant was good. But I scheduled a reservation with open table and I called to be sure our reservation was set. The restaurant told me they did not have a reservation for me yet I had a confirmation email. The redstarts then was great and added our reservation.

Booked a reservation for 530 as we had a movie to get to at 7. They had sat people at our table so we had to wait 10min to get a able. Then our waitress never showed up so after another 10min the manager ended up taking our order. The food took awhile to come out and everything was stone cold. After speaking to the manager they did comp our meal. But defiantly not going back.

With a reservation I was hoping for a nice window seating during lunch instead of way back in the restaurant close to the kitchen which we were seated.
