Met a friend here for dinner this week as it was halfway drive for both of us. Staff was friendly and helpful. They were out of several beers we tried to order which got us off to a bad start. The meal was decent and the portions were large. The loaded baked potato was outstanding. The steak was just kind... More

This is my wife's second favorite restaurant in Newton since they came to town. We have never had a bad experience here. Staff is always very friendly, courteous and attentive. Service has always been pretty quick even when they are busy and we have never had a bad meal. Had a couple of things I didn't care for, but that... More

Oh my god... The service was the best. The food no complaints. Let's talk about that. My lady ordered a cheeseburger and onion rings. I had swiss steak with steak fries. I couldn't believe the size of the food. You could have divided that food between four people and no one would have left hungry. The price was not to... More

First, the Strawberry Chicken Salad was great! Buy even more, my husband and daughter shared the 2 for $22 which includes an appetizer and 2 entrees. The mountain of cheese fries they got as the appetizer was HUGE! It could have been an appetizer for 10 people. They each got a fresh baked roll, salad, choice og a side, and... More

Ever eaten an old shoe? It not, try the prime rib at Montana Mike's in Newton. I paid $19 for a chewy, cool, tasteless, sinewy hunk of meat. The manager stopped by our table and asked how things were. I didn't have the heart to tell him that how bad it was.

Sophia C, Manager at Montana Mike's, responded to this review

We are very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your steak during your recent visit. We work to ensure our naturally aged, USDA steaks, that are hand-cut at the restaurant are grilled to our guests' preference, but it seems we missed the mark here. We are happy to hear that the Manager did come by to check on you.... More

The food here is average. We really like craft beer, which they don't carry. Too bad since there are a lot of local breweries in Iowa crafting really good beer.

I had a great steak, nice hot vegetable's, just a little on the pricy side for my budget but more than I could eat so I call it worth it. the wait staff was friendly and attentive.

Well, we wished we'd have picked a different restaurant. This one was nothing special and way over priced. Good thing is we know that now so if we're back in the area we will avoid it.
