I have never had anyone come into Great Falls from another town and not know what the Sip n Dip was. It seems to be quite the staple here. Its different but not for everyone. It has a great energy and a small but cozy atmosphere.

The atmosphere is a fun place for after hours relaxation moments. You can sing along with Pat at the piano and just act silly if you want. The Sip & Dip is ranked as one of the top 10 bars to see and participate in according to the airline industry. I have been there several times with my family and... More

Small but energetic place. Good food and good service. The lady who plays the piano has been doing it for over 50 years and she is a bit of a local legend....her piano playing is great and her singing is to be experienced.

The food and service are definitely not what you go to the Sip 'n Dip for. The food is average (at best) bar food and the main entrees will leave you in sticker shock. But if you're in Great Falls - particularly in the winter - you have to stop at the Sip n Dip just to check out the... More

Fantastic tiki bar lounge in the middle of land-locked Montana, full of mermaids (and sometimes mermen) that perform in the pool. The food is surprisingly good, and the drinks are very big and very delicious - we drove all the way from Calgary with a group of friends to celebrate my daughters 21 birthday, and she had a blast.

We had a fun time watching the mermaids, drinking a HUGE beverage and listening to the 80 something lady at the organ. Truly a fun place to visit!

Last thing you would expect to see in montana in sub zero temps. Friend staff throwback tiki bar lounge & the mermaids performed and interacted with the crowd. Bring your camera they encourage you to take a picture behind the bar with the mermaids. Lots of fun!

Thank you for your kind review we appreciate it very much! I know it's hard to believe that there are mystical ocean creatures swimming when it's minus 10 degrees outside. Come see us again! More

everyone in canada raved about this place so we had to try it. it is pretty small, mermaid swimming in a tank behind the bar, an ancient old lady playing the piano. it was quirky. Drinks in plastic cups sort of disappointing, keno machines that paid nothing at all. Pretty average.

This place is a vintage beauty. Who knew places like this even still existed?? We stopped in on a quiet Tuesday night, and had great service and drinks. Beer, wine and a cocktail. Their wine menu surprised me, not the typical cheap stuff, they actually carried both reds and whites from Washington, Oregon and California. We didn't eat, but the... More

This is an iconic feature of Great Falls and a must-see. It gets really crowded on weekends. Piano Pat won't be there forever, she's getting old so get in there while you can and check out her radical organ playing and the pretty mermaids.
