Will Return!

Fantastic service, we went during dinner and the food was all delicious and hot and didn't take long at all to arrive. Our server was prompt, super friendly and attentive. Appetizers arrived quickly and main courses followed soon after, appreciated that we didn't have to wait.

Early Friday evening dinner 5:15 ish. We shared beef nachos as an app and it was excellent. Both of us ordered ribs. Extremely dry and tough texture. Forget fall off the bone, more like ripping and shredding away from the bone. I managed to eat two out of six ribs. That's it. Baked potato tasted strange. That was it for... More

Absolutely, by far the worst dining experience my family and I have encountered. Waited an hour for our food, when it finally got to us it was cold, my daughters pasta had a 16 inch long blonde hair in it. Server never asked us if we wanted our drinks refilled, plates taken away etc. When it was mentioned to the... More

If I am after roadhouse fare to fill my stomach, Montana's Cookhouse always meets my expectations. The food and service are always consistent. If one of my favorites has been removed from the menu, they will still deliver it to me if I ask. The staff is always friendly and genuinely seem to enjoy their job.

We went to Montana's for lunch on a Tuesday. Wasn't too busy, and we were seated at a booth right away. The server was very new on the job, and was clearly not trained. She was trying hard, but she was very confused about everything. She did not know the menu, drinks, specials ... and was having a hard time... More

Waited over an hour for our food and it came to us like rubber. Our server had friends there that night and spent her time visiting

Living in Owen Sound we usually prefer some local places vs chain restaurants but this visit was a pleasant surprise! The pulled pork was amazing and the staff were friendly. We returned the next week with our sons and they loved the atmosphere. We will be back again for date nights and family dinners!

Last time we were in Montana's was when my cousin and her husband came to visit. the service was slow. We told the gal we needed to get out in 90 mins.
