You must make this a place to stop and have a drink while in Great Falls. It is done in a south seas motif from the 50's/60's. In addition behind the bar are large windows which show are below the water level of the pool....More

Thank you for coming in! We appreciate it. Just to clarify though, Piano Pat plays Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Travel safe and please come see us again!

The mermaids must be the only thing attracting people here. The drinks were okay and the building was dark, small and felt dirty.

The Sip n Dip Lounge is lots of fun. Piano Pat, Mermaids, cold beer, great meals, generous poker machines. The place is a popular gathering place for good reason!

Got there around 6 to see the mermaids and grab a beer. Probably should have gone a little bit later as there was only 1 mermaid and Pat the piano player didn't start until 9, but I was exhausted from a long day of traveling....More

The Sip n' Dip is truly a GEM. The old school tiki bar makes you feel like you have been transported to another time and place~ and the fishbowl drink definitely help you get there faster. :) The mermaids do a GREAT job swimming, twirling,...More

My group came from Canada for a bachelorette party at this place because of its reputation. The atmosphere is cheesy fun (old school tiki bar) and there were indeed mermaids. The only reason to visit is if you like that sort of thing, because the...More

Who would expect to find a tacky but fun Tiki Bar in Montana? This came as a recommendation from a colleague and turned out to be a blast. The bartender even made a drink special for us out of town guests. Loved the mermen and...More

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 Motor 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. There's something in the water at the Sip 'n Dip!
