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 was sub-par and cold. Missed brining m salad and didn't bother waiting for another to be made. I've been here several time and this will be it for a while I'm afraid 😑

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.

The service that we had at Montana’s was amazing. Our server was so friendly and awesome. Our appetizers were amazing but the meal was mediocre. Wasn’t overly impressed.

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!

Good food and good service with Montanas. Good protocol on Covid testing. It is recommended that you make an online reservation first. Enjoy

My husband had fajitas and the tortillas were much too small. It's pretty impossible to fit everything on them. A shame as the fillings were good.

The food was good, noise level was high as we were sitting closest to the road. Had to ask for salt and pepper which took awhile to get and eventually had to go look for some to get it for us, then we got it brought twice to the table.

Food was incredíble, service was very good. They are families with kids so if you want quietness when the indoor dinning is back ask for the bar side.

We had this amazing waitress she was extremely lovely I don’t remember her name but she had bright blonde white hair and she’s 22 tall I remember is she had very bright pink cheeks and she was extremely lovely. She wasn’t only nice but she was curious to how our day was and she genuinely actually cared.

Outdoor dining only in our area. Went early and no crowd. Enjoyed the fresh air. Food was OK but nothing special.

Montana's, in my estimation, has been declining in quality for several years. I booked this table because my first two options were already full. In all honesty I would not have gone to Montana's if I had choices. In this case, the lack of a lunch menu meant that we had to order regular dinnertime entrees, and thus pay much more for what would otherwise be an lighter but acceptable lunch. There was nothing wrong with the food--it was standard Montana's fair served with minimal pretension. But it was most certainly not worth the CA$55 I paid for myself and my friend. In future I would hope that more of an effort will be made to create a lunch menu that offers more variety, and does not break the bank. And if I may, the staff were courteous and helpful. That's not the problem.

Patio on Ira Needles was very noisy with traffic, but was in shade which was nice. Drink special advertised at the door was unavailable and not replaced with any other special. Veggies forgotten with order of wings, and no moist toilettes were available, so pretty sticky after wings and ribs. Waitress was very friendly and fast! Wings and burger were delicious, ribs a little dry.

Our server was great. Everything was brought in a timely manner.
Taste was great.
However the bacon on my burger was uncooked and there was too much bbq sauce.

We waited 15 minutes and had to ask for someone to take our order. They did give us a plate of free cornbread to compensate for the wait time while we waiting for our food. We were not offered any water.

I ordered the buttermilk chicken plate with a side of caesar salad and I get this meal every time I come, and was quite excited for it but when i received it the salad was warm and the buttermilk sauce was the consistency of water and it was just not enjoyable at all. I love Montanas, but I was not impressed this time and will most likely not be back in the near future because of this experience.

My husband ordered his steak rare, it was well done, and very thin. My daughters chicken was good as well as my fish, but about fries were way too salty. The coleslaw was great.

The service was fantastic and the waitress was great. The food was cold and had very little flavour if any. The drinks are always fantastic but was greatly disappointed with the food this time.

The server was excellent. She refilled our drinks before we even realized that we should ask for one. The food was wonderful. We were in a small off shoot area where there was only one other table. They have arranged the tables around the building so that you don’t get too much of a cluster and that way it is quiet. Will be pleased to come again

Service was good. Food was excellent as usual. Unfortunately it was very very windy on the patio, and there were empty tables near us with some protection from the wind, but they would not move us. It was very cold, and jackets were needed, but it was unfortunate that when we asked the manager he would not move us to enjoy our meal more.
