The service was really slow. When our entree arrived it was the wrong food and we had to wait for the proper order. In fairness to them they never charged us for the food. We spent an hour longer than we intended in the restaurant.

The meal took a very long time to arrive due to a large party that was there, however the meal was great, the service was excellent and we enjoyed our experience. To our surprise, our server brought us a complimentary desert to apologize for the delay in the meal. We will certainly return to this restaurant.

Amazing service. Our server Mya was kind, and so accommodating. My 3 year old wanted cooked carrots, she asked the kitchen and they were able to do it for us. This was above and beyond. The food was perfect and we had a great time. We always do, thank you for being consistanly awesome!

Great food, better than most outings we have had during Covid. Nice, attentive waitress who knew the menu and could guide/make suggestions.

I will go back again soon!

Our server was attentive to our needs but didn't hover. Food was delicious. There was no music blaring which made the ambience lovely for our anniversary dinner.

Greeted promptly, showed Vaccination Documentation and were seated. Not too busy and Waitress was over right away to greet and take drink order.
She was very helpful with drink info and dinner options.
Dinner took along time to arrive and when it did arrive all was luke warm at best as we had waited for over 30 min for dinner to arrive we did not send it back. Food was good but it had definitely had been waiting to be delivered to our table.
Big disappointment as it was the 1st time we had been out in over 6 months

Arrived for a 9pm reservation and the waitress didn't know the soup of the day. The first 3 beers we ordered weren't available - and she didn't tell us what wasn't available before asking our order. Plates arrived at the table dirty. Nobody was unpleasant, and the food was fine, but it certainly wasn't a great experience - and I've had a great experience at other Montana's restaurants over the years.

Unfortunately one of my worst visits there. The server was lovely when she came to the table, but it took forever for out food to arrive. Ordered a the sangria which was like a sugary juice - terrible. My appetizer was cold, and the taco shell was so hard it crumbled in my hands

Needless to say very disappointed.

I cannot remember our servers name but she was absolutely wonderful to deal with. She took the time to help me with my gluten free meal options - determining what was in the patties and sauces. We were served with a wonderful, positive attitude. And timing was amazing - quick and the food was hot and fresh!

The food was good considering the price point. Our server was lovely! Very attentive. Unfortunately, the girl that greeted us what everything but nice. She rolled her eyes at me when I asked for a different table as we wanted a table in the dinning room, and not the bar. She was incredibly rude every time I asked her a question or tried to talk to her. Aside from that experience was good.

Service was poor at 3:30 p.m. for an early meal. One waitress for what seemed like the whole patio. Another one joined her at 4 p.m. but it was a wait for water and a wait to take our order. Had fish and chips, which was good. Forgot that coffee was terrible, so beautiful will not order again. Will think about going there another time.

Not the best food or service. I guess having such a long break due to Covid hurts businesses such as the food industry. Maybe after a few months getting back into the flow will help. On a positive note! The preparation of the food was very quick.. The restaurant was clean!

The appetizers wings and ka pow shrimp were great. My daughter ordered the onion burger which was average at best. I had the beef ribs which was very average. My wife had the chicken breast with white creamy gravy was actually very good. We shared the chocolate chip cookie skillet with ice cream for dessert which was good. Will definitely be back for the appetizers and a beer with my friends probably not with my family. Was expecting more on the most expensive meal on the menu being the beef ribs.

We were so beyond impressed with our server. I wish I caught her name before we left. She very clearly was busy and being overworked but she still managed to provide us with excellent service which amazed us. We will definitely return to the location, and hopefully we get to see her again!

Food is okay. But being a rib and steak place, the ribs were bot the best. Nice sauce, but meat doesn’t fall off bones like in other rib places. Steak was a bit dry and chewy.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The skillet cookie was amazing and the drinks were refreshing. Everyone loved the dessert. Service was well-timed and friendly!
