We frequent Montana's in various locations. This time visiting relatives in Hamilton we went as a large party. And although this one was not unusually busy for a Montana's, the food even apps were extremely slow. Although the children were provided with crayons, still they will only wait or be patient so long. And when the dishes finally arrived the... More

I have been a regular visitor to Montana's yet I am hesitant to go again. In three consecutive visits at this restaurant, the back ribs have been nothing but disappointing, mostly because they were so dry! The sauce is thrown on but underneath, the meat is simply dry and tough. On a positive note, I always enjoy the nachos and... More

Boring to say the least. Guess that's why most Montana's have so few customers at lunch. Food is boring, tasteless and not great value for the money

I generally like Montana's. But I will stick to the Ancaster location going forward. My daughter's chicken strips came out with a hair right in the fries. Then I cut in to my "medium" top sirloin steak. It was cooked "well done". I am currently still sitting here waiting for my replacement 15 minutes later. Should only take a few... More

The Keg often requires proper dress. Montana has a good steak for a more reasonable cost. Swiss Chalet has competition with the quality of the chicken served at Montanas

Western style establishment with fun family oriented old west style décor. Meals are delicious but on the higher side. Service is good. Establishment is clean and well taken care of. Great place to have family meals, meet up with friends, have a birthday party or just to grab a quick snack. I recommend this establishment to anyone who enjoys theme... More

Have eaten lunch here twice in the past few months and enjoyed it both times. There is an extensive menu selection along with daily specials. The food was fresh and very tasty with large portions. We had the mini ribs with sweet potato fries, burgers and salads. Quite enjoyable. A nice atmosphere with wooden tables and booths by the window... More
