Have not been to this Montana's in some time but dined here recently with my 14 yr old son. We were seated quickly and the restaurant itself was very nice. We ordered deep fried pickles as an app, I had Cobb Salad, and my son had a bacon cheeseburger with fries. Our food was served in a reasonable time and... More

Montana's is a safe bet (as is their associate franchise Swiss Chalet) any time. This location is located at Dartmouth Crossing where there is more than ample parking (and lots of other places of all kinds to spend your money if so inclined). I had a great Cobb salad, the plate filled with real bacon bits, crispy lettuce (romaine) which... More

The service was excellent. It was our 2 year old's birthday - the staff brought him and his brother a cookie and sang. They spoke directly with our 4 year old and engaged in conversations with him. (we went for a late lunch so it was quieter than I would expect). The portions were significant and we left either full... More

We were greeted pretty fast. Nice friendly waitress. We had the poutine appetizer with ribs in it, it was delicious! Sweet peach BBQ sandwich, was good but not great. The waitress forgot some minor details but she did have a lot of tables she was tending to, not just us. Overall, good food. Good atmosphere and friendly staff.

Ordered build your own burger, was delicious. ... they forgot cheese, I didnt really mind, they knocked half off price and gave coupon for next visit. Wife mentioned to our server (Krista) about lactose allergy, she had manager come over and go through menu including sauces etc to make sure she could make good choices. We'll be back

Had early supper here at the new location in Dartmouth Crossing. Clean, well laid out - typical Montana's whichever location you go to. Service was just OK, considering it was not very busy. We shared the Deep Fried Dill Pickle appetizer and it was very interesting! They were service hot, coating was crunchy and the dill flavor came more from... More

Our dinner for two was expensive for below average quality. Ribs good. Wings poor, couldn't eat them. Sirloin steak over done to a greyish colour, flavour was bland. (Ordered medium well, pink centre) Corn bread tasted kind of old, not light and fresh. Service was fine. There's just so many places you can go to get a first rate meal... More

I've eaten at a number of Montana's Restaurants and most of them have been while on business. For whatever reason, once I eat a resto on business, they're permanently off my personal list as I'm loathe to associate business and pleasure. Anyway that being said, I was staying at a hotel in a fairly commercial area and there were a... More
