Informal Dining Is OK

Montana's Cookhouse & Saloon is part of Cara Foods Operation. For me, Montana's seems to be a bit too casual and somewhat misses on being "western ranch style." To tie in with my last comment, I choose the reuben sandwich, which I am sure one could not find in the old west. I have no idea of how... read more

The entire meal including the ribs were over processed and tasteless. What a waste of money. Went home and stuck my fingers down my throat to get the crap out of my system. Yuck

I had sangria with berries and merlot, Mac N cheese with Caesar salad, cornbread, White shock Belgian beer in a glass boot.Had written off chain for noisy chaotic dropping of dishes, pots, clatter, peanut shells all over the floor-less than impressed in Lethbridge.Was there for lunch, it was quiet and pleasant.Unfortunately like all big chains, they don't carry local micro...

Well this was a dining experience I hope no one else has. We arrived at Montana’s at 5:30 on a week night with intentions of eating dinner before going to a movie at 7:00 pm. By 5:40 our drink order had been taken and our food order was right behind that. In the worst case scenario we figured our dinner... More

It always has been and still is a pretty good place to go. The service has never been questionable, in fact has always been above average. The food is pretty good as well. You can tell it's not sit down chef made food, but it's not fast food...something in the middle! I find that the prices have crept up quite... More

I inquired about why it was raw and spicy and server said "oh the bottom veggies always cook more." I am thinking 'uh i... More

Located near Tillicum mall. Food can be good one day, then not so great a week later. Service is friendly but slow. I used to enjoy the beef ribs, but just aren't the same great taste lately. Can get very busy around dinner time. Loud. Larger groups often use this restaurant but also good for smaller groups.

Overcooked/charred Veggie Burger, Chicken Strips served when Kapow Shrimp was ordered, real slow in coffee refills. We love the Deep Fried Pickles so will give them another chance.

We enjoyed good food and great service at the Montana Cookhouse. When you are waiting for you food and drinks take time to look around. I found it very interesting what they consider as Montana "stuff". The outboard on the side of the canoe really cracked me up'
