The portions are plenty big and the price is quite fair. The food is delicious and the staff is friendly. It's crazy busy at supper time, but if you aren't in a hurry, it's worth the wait. The main menu is great, the lunch menu is as well. The dessert menu offers something for everyone and you just MUST try... More

Our 1st visit certainly won't be our last...I absolutely loved the Tomato Basil soup...picture a homemade tomato bisque full of flavor.. Delicious. I didn't really care as much for the pulled pork sandwich..a little smoky for my liking. Hubby's 7 oz steak was cooked to perfection. Others at the table enjoyed the ribs and the Firecracker burger, For dessert they... More

I have had pretty great experiences at Montana's so far. I notice that everything they make seems to be fresh and made in house...they even have a smoker for crying out loud, but not fresh burgers! I talked to waiter about being undecided between a smoked brisket sandwich and the Canadian burger. He suggests that his favorite thing happened to... More

We were to Montana's for a meal a couple weeks back. First time in 5 or 6 years. I always liked their ribs. Had the Ribs again, but definitely not like they use to be. Great flavor, but for $20.00 there was not much for meat on the bones. Very surprised as they keep advertising it is rib time! I... More

I came here and ordered the chicken fajitas. The service was very good but even though the food portion was good I found it a little bland. The cast iron skillet didn't have the sizzle that I would expect and the food didn't have the char I like.

It seemed quite busy when we went and we had to wait a while for a table. However, it looked like there were several empty tables... Service was great! Meal was ok. It's very noisy, but I guess you expect that when you go someplace like Montana's.

Went there for a birthday supper for my nephew. Not overly busy, service was a mess!!! Had to get plates, silverware and ketchup from empty tables. Ordered the appetizer plate and got a spinach dip with 6 pitas!!! The entire tray was horrible. Fish order was not cooked, mass confusion trying to pay and leave. Had to ask for things... More

Chicken and waffles had burned waffles. Ribs and waffle fries were cold. Service was okay. Wouldn't go back.
