Good place to eat just off exit 164 I-80

Can't beat the service and the food. Usually have to take home in a box due to the generous portions. Nice atmosphere and people. Have much more than steaks on their menu.

Service is very slow and food was awful! Sat for 15 minutes before we even had a waitress come to our table. Steaks were ordered well done and came out to us bloody red! Salad was gross too. Waitress forgot everything we asked her for. I would never eat here again. If your in the area skip this place....you'll be... More

When I explained to the wait staff that I am gluten free they understood and then offered selections that met my needs. My steak was cooked to specification and the whole dinner was delicious. I would highly recommend this restaurant for couple, families, business, casual dining and solo. Full menu selections are available, not just steak.

We ate at a hi-top in the bar area and it was later in the evening. Our server was very nice and mindful. We ordered burgers and an app. Warm buttered buns were a comp that was a pleasant surprise and very good. Not sure if it was because it was late (aprox. 10pm) and they close at 11pm but... More

We had traveled to Newton to conduct other business we decided to try Montana Mikes. Should have left after using the restroom and having your shoes actually sticking to the floor .YUCK! The greeter acted if she was doing us a favor by seating us. Our waitress was professional. Best part of our meals were the drinks and onion rings.... More

Please tighten up your kitchen staff. Started off with rock hard rolls, went on to over cooked steak, and the cheese on our cheese fries was not even melted and the fries tasted like old fryer oil. On a positive note the beverages were great.

Supposedly known for their steaks, I ordered the 8 oz sirloin. Bad choice, super chewy and really no flavor. Best thing on the table was the Pepsi because they really had nothing to do with it. Service was good and with a smile.
