We were seated by the bar @ around 4:30 and it was pretty loud for that early in the evening. The food was really good, and the service was fast.

A good variety of menu options are offered and the decor is interesting. The food was decent and the staff friendly. It's what you expect from the chain.

I usually like Montana's restaurants but this meal was not good at all. The service was very slow and the floors had a general greasy feel to them. The meal was not what I was expecting as it really didn't look anything like the photos in the menu. I know menu photos are staged but my steak sandwich looked like... More

I love going here for good, satisfying food. I really enjoy the atmosphere, with the rustic decor. However, I don't care for the loud singing whenever it's someone's birthday. It's a little annoying. :)

The food was fine, but every one of our party of 7 was freezing. The server said they had no ability to adjust the temperature, so we had to endure the cold.

Decent food, but somehow the one guy who wanted steak was getting the last steak they had available! It was supposed to be a steak house! I had the combo meal with three ribs and skewered shrimp. It was good. They do have a pretty good bar in the same building. Service was very good. Most of the places we... More

What is with the Saint John sugar obsession? Maybe in this particular case, it is Montana's sugar obsession. I had one of their summertime "refreshing" adult beverages, the bourbon peach iced tea. It was so sweet it made my teeth hurt. I had a salad and asked if their ranch was made onsite. Nope. Kraft. Tasted it. You could almost... More

We ate here because my husband said we had to try one before we left Canada. It reminded me of a Texas Roadhouse back in the US. It was good. Service was good. We ate outside in their patio that was perfect beautiful night outside!

We ordered a menu item that was 2/35.99. The steak bites were tough and the chicken wings were too breaded. The shrimp was small and not tasty. We did get a discount from our motel plus discount for not "loving" the meal. Waitress was very personable although we waited a long time for our meal. Probably wouldn't go back.
