This is the kind of restaurant that i regard as if you've been to one, you've been to them all.with that being said, i honestly love this restaurant. When i visit Montana's i tend to get one of their burgers. The burgers are always fresh. Easily one of the best chain restaurants in Canada.

We wee a mixed group - men, women, children, teenagers, Canadian and American. We were seated promptly and had a waiter Mark who was pleasant and efficient but not intrusive. The food was great and our vegetarian teenager rated her boca-veggie burger "top notch" and she has had boca burgers in many places. We don't know how long the food... More

A little pricey but worth it. Not somewhere you could afford to go to every day. Good atmosphere and fast service. They really know their steaks and seasonings. My uncle is partially blind and has to walk with a cane. 2 employees even escorted him to his seat making sure he didn't bump into anything.

we went here because it was convenient to the hotel we were staying at. I had a half rack of the back ribs and they were dry and not that much meat on the bones even though when they were served there looked like a lot but it was big bones. the service was good.

Over a year ago, I had poorly prepared food and questionable service at this restaurant so did not go for a long period of time. Last week, I went and what a surprise. I took the sirloin and it was great. Tasty, well prepared and presented and the service was also very good. Quite an improvement over my last experience... More

there is nothing good to say about this place. It is exactly what you would expect of a chain....poor food that is probably prepared somewhere else and reheated, and sold at Cadillac prices.

We went to this Montana's because kids eat free on Tuesdays. What we didn't know before arriving is that they have a face painter on Tuesdays too. The food was good, and so was the service, but the face painter was great! She was very friendly, and did an awesome job. My kids loved her and asked if we could... More

Been there a few times... food had been pretty good the first 3 times (July/Aug 2012). Aug 2013.... well that was different. Had the back ribs... they were VERY DRY... CHEWY... OVERCOOKED. You had to really rip at them to get them to come apart. Very little sauce on them. Left half of them behind on the plate and was... More

I went during the all you can eat ribs on Wednesday. The ribs were, inconsistent of how they were cooked each time, but were decent considering it was an all you can eat. The servers weren't really attentive, as you would have to call to them to get something. Overall, a average experience.

I really enjoyed the roast beef I ordered and I found the service pleasant and efficient. I was shopping and came across it in the plaza.
