Just like all the Rest

Dont order their summer pork rinds as an appetizer. Not impressed by the taste and what you get. The rest of the place is clean and friendly. It is just that all of their food is virtually the same as everyone else. The ribs are good, again nothing special.

Food here is always good but the menu is starting to get boring. Really aren't a lot of options unless you want steak or ribs. The kids love it, that's for sure. The staff is always pretty good.

Wonderful service with a smile and a laugh, we joked and they joked right back. Fast service, good food. We had a wonderful meal and felt like we had made friends when we left.

We were in St. Catharines for my son's football game and needed to feed him prior to him hitting the field. He ordered the ribs and wings and was happy with his meal, my daughter ordered a salad with all kinds of stuff on in (her usual) and my husband and I ordered the Bison burgers. My burger was good...

You know what to expect at Montana's Cookhouse, from steaks to a wide selection of hamburgs to fish and chips. Good food, lots of it, and prices on par with other such chains. They are way too generous with the salt shaker at times as I for one don't like a pool of salt on my plates, but a simple... More

I've wanted to try this restaurant forever. Now I've tried it, I'm never going there again. We arrived after the dinner rush and waited a long time for dinner. We ordered a pitcher of sangria to share and were given a dirty glass to go with it. There was so much ice in the pitcher that the contents ended up... More

We decided to try Montanas for the second time and what a mistake! Two of us ordered steak. My medium rare steak tasted burnt! My husband order the larger cut and wanted it with no pink centre! His larger cut was smaller than mine and very dry! The service was extremely slow even though the restaurant wasn't busy. I ordered... More

First of all, since Montana's took fall off the bone baby back ribs off their menu, we have not made it regular stop for ribs. however the arrival of a 25% off coupon in the mail gave us an excuse to revisit and try out the rib combos. Upon arrival we had planned a quick meal for two. Upon being... More
