It is just a average bar with the mermaids but pretty good sight. Drink were good and I tried to order food but the waitress never came to get order.

I apologize for the waitress. We have hired additional staff to handle the food end of the lounge so hopefully that helps solve any issues. Thank you for stopping in. We appreciate it.

Great place with awesome entertainment. Food and service is sublime and the mermaid activity is top notch. Great swag to be had and the town has loads to do for the visitor. Fishing the MO is close by.

This is a regular stop for us when we go to Great Falls. We love the entertainment of Piano Pat and the Mermaids. Who can resist a Fishbowl drink?! We've eaten there on a number of occasions and never been disappointed

Better than you than you think. This looked like a place of bar food. Na Na Actually a good dinner menu. Salads were fresh. Rib eye steaks were done well. The fried cheesecake was well worth it. Bring the family and enjoy the mermaids. The...More

Apparently you can get a drink only at restaurants on a Monday in Great Falls?! This place is the quenticent old timey bar. There are actually Mermaids that swim around behind the bar!

Cool place, but if you're looking for a younger crowd or dancing, you won't find much here. Loved the fish bowl, but only one flavor. Mermaid was a cool, took selfies with people. Very nostalgic place.

Thank you for stopping in. There are two mermaids for about two hours per night, but it's hard to find them in Montana. Sorry to disappoint on that end.

We went to the mermaids brunch with our kids and both mermaids and food were awesome. We really enjoyed it and the kids LOVED the mermaids who swim around the whole time and interact with the guests

Saw an ad for this place at our hotel, and just had to check it out. We had a blast. It's a tiny little lounge, it has delicious food, and there are MERMAIDS!!!

Anyone is welcome to stop in before 9pm. The merpeople are usually in the tank by 6pm. However, it is an adult lounge so please keep that in mind. We cannot control the customer conversations, actions, etc. We are... More

Description
The Sip 'n Dip is the home of the Montana Mermaids and Piano Pat. A close drive to Glacier National Park, the Sip 'n Dip Lounge is part of the O'Haire Inn. We're unique and nothing like you've ever experienced before. Stop in for a bite to eat, watch the mermaids, listen to Pat, stay in one of our comfy rooms. We don't care what you do while you're here, just that you're here. The Sip 'n Dip Lounge is a original 60's tiki bar. It's home to the Montana Mermaids and Piano Pat. The mermaids swim Monday through Saturday starting at 6pmish at night, and the first and third Sunday of the month for our family friendly Mermaid brunch from 10am to 2pm. Piano Pat plays Wed, Thu and Fri evenings starting at around 8:30pm. *Please note: Piano Pat is in her mid 80's so if she's not feeling well, she does not come in. We cannot guarantee that she will be here on those nights. She does her best to be here for her fans, but she does tire easily. We can't wait to meet you!
