Went for dinner here on May 28th, should have clued in at how few people were in the restaurant and gone somewhere else. There were quite a few wait staff on that night and they were obviously bored, shouting across the restaurant to one another and not really paying much attention to the customers. We have had the ribs here... More

Hi Jeani, I just wanted to first thankyou for taking the time to review our restaurant, and secondly apologize for the service that you recieved. While we try to maintain a casual yet fun environment there is no reason that our staff should have been shouting across the restaurant. I am also dissapointed that your ribs and baked potato were...

Montana's serves up some tasty nachos, the best I've had while visiting Kimberley! Loads of toppings, crisp chips and generous portions of salsa and sour cream, and as always, I'll get a side of guac which is a tasty add on. Now no judging allowed, but I've tried all their nacho options, pulled pork, chorizo and the good ol veggie.... More

While staying at Northstar mountain village resort, we dined @ Montana's. We were happy we did, as the staff were super friendly, the food, fantastic!! The restaurant is quite large and it was nicely spread out, so you had some privacy. We will be back, soon!

The food here wasn't bad. I had ribs and shrimp and they were fine but nothing truly exciting. The prices seem higher than other Montanas locations perhaps due to the ski hill location. There are definitely better dinning experiences in Kimberley for the money.

Great location at the base of the ski hill. We enjoyed a slow lunch while ski hill watching. All the meals fine, nothing outstanding but good. I would eat here again.

typical chain type food -nothing too exciting or too bad. slow service, fairly expensive. Tried the "all you can eat ribs" and wasn't impressed.

A really varied selection from soup to steak. Ample serving - no need for dessert. Went twice - right in Trickle Creek Lodge

Food was what would be expected from any Montana's location. Surprised that we had to "wait" for a table when there were many empty tables that could be seen. Service was slow, not bad, but not memorable either. Drinks were not refilled, no one came to find out how our meals were and once we asked for our bill we... More

Since Montanas started in Kimberley, we have been traveling from our home between Cranbrook & Kimberley, mostly for celebration dinners(birthdays, anniversarys etc). We have never made a reservation and never had a problem. When we attended this Sunday evening, we walked up to the desk and said there would be 5 of us, the girl at the counter asked if... More
