New food, or new chef?

My husband and I have been going to Montana's once a month every month and had great experiences until the last three visits. The meat on the ribs was negligible, it was dried out and difficult to peel off the bone. The baked potatoes were over baked. The onion bits that used to be tasty and... read more

Yet again while on vacation in Victoria, we made our pilgrimage back to Montana's. We were not disappointed! Everything was delicious especially the steak! Friendly and attentive service and we love the restaurant decor. Look forward to going back the next time we're in Victoria.

Montana is used to be one of the go-to restaurant but it has been two visits in a row where the food (rib) quality has been decrease dramatically. It is very disappointment as my last year visit is still satisfied. Servers are friendly but everything else sink down to the bottom.

Third time in the last year at Montana's and yet to have a good meal so won't be back. Family of four plus a child and a baby - staff were friendly and happy with the service. The beer (Belgium white) was good but the ribs weren't - tough and dried out which was the case on the earlier visits.... More

I love ribs. I also know my selection of meat very well. Montana is basically an average place for ribs. The burgers were very good but the ribs is not as good as it can or should be. The servings are reasonable in size, staff is friendly but I cannot give it more than three stars as it literally is... More

I've been to Montans in Nanimo multiple times and always enjoyed the food and service, but this was my first time at the Victoria location and was pleased with the quilling and preparedness of food. 1. My host was very insightful, and friendly. 2. My server, Nicole was quick and adaptable for my menus change. 3. My meal came out... More

Five of us decided to go to dinner on a Wednesday night because it was rib fest :All you can eat ribs and not at a cheap price. We arrived for 7pm to miss the dinner rush. Our dinner order was taken promptly and delivered to our table in good time. Only two people at the table were actually having... More

I've been going to Montana's for almost 3 years. I used to love going to Montana's on a regular basis to get my ribs. They must have changed chefs because someone cannot become this bad at preparing pork ribs. I used to suggest this restaurant to people and friends but lately I had to apologize as people were very disappointed.... More

OK,ever since my first time going to Montana's in Niagara Falls, I was basically hooked. Ribs are certainly one of my favourite meals. Since going to quite a few all you can eat rib nights, I have become not only a rib connoisseur but can cook them quite well. I have a friend with a large sized Big green egg... More
