Have always enjoyed coming here until my last 2 visits. Needed a booster seat for my young child and think I recked the hostess' day. After getting neglected for drinks after waiting for 10 minutes went across the street to Kelsey's. Previous visit waited 20 minutes to get our bill after we were done.

We booked this for our group coming in for a hockey tournament in October. I understand that it's difficult for restaurants to handle large groups, and in this case, the servers were incredible. They had pre-printed sheets with team numbers on it and handled everyone very well. One server for the kids, one for the adults. The only issue I... More

My family and I like to try different restaurants when we visit an area, even if it is a "chain" restaurant. We all really enjoyed our meals. My husband is partial to buffalo burgers and with my son- well can't go wrong with chicken fingers/strips. I had poutine. Food was good and we will give it a go again if... More

My fiancé and I frequent Montana's as our anniversary go too. We also go when we have extra funds for a night out. Always get the same thing fire cracker burger and I get the chicken penne. Only downside is the last 2 times the debit has been down. This is not good especially when you only have cards on... More

We stopped in for lunch with kids before hitting the outlets. Montana's is a little pricy but the food always seems good and the service was prompt and friendly.

We chose this location which is just off the highway (Lake St. exit from QEW) due to the one in Niagara Falls, which was our destination, being extremely busy in the summer and not getting good recent reviews. Glad we stopped in St. Catherines. Enjoyed the burgers and beef dip. (For the beef dip ask for a little container of... More

The staff was very friendly and we had a wonderful waitress who was very attentive. Food was average. The chicken tacos and side salad had very little dressing drizzled on them, needed more as it was lacking in flavor. My husband's mashed potatoes were on the cool side. The fajitas with the peach bbq sauce were really good. Ribs were... More

We were there twice in May. We had a coupon so we ordered their wings as an appetizer - they were 1/2 price and delicious! A few weeks later, we decided to go back for their 1/2 price wings and it was unfortunately a different experience. The wings were under done & tasted really off to me but that was... More
