Have eaten numerous times at the "old" Rex. It "was" the Best in Billings! Things have changed. My salad plate was filthy/ greasy fingerprints. (Returned for another) Our order took over 50 minutes to arrive. In the meantime we were offered two loaves of bread. The garlic mashed had little flavor and had crusted over and no garlic. My 6...

I ordered the sirloin and couldn't have been more happy with it. I'm pretty picky when it comes to steak but the steak I had was cooked medium rare as requested (most places overcook). I would highly recommend the Rex if you are visiting Billings. Prices are a little higher but worth it.

Always great food. Chicken wings and Prime Rib are my favorites. Service is great. Love the patio area.

I know this place has had mixed reviews recently, but the night we were there (9 of us), the steaks and prime rib were very good. At the advise of our server we did not order any of the fish or bar-b-que items and stayed with the steaks and prime rib. What we had was well prepared, reasonably quickly served... More

I have to say though it is a bit noisy the steak here is the best I have had in Billings or Montana. Great value for your money.

We sat on patio because it was beautiful outside and a band was playing in the parking lot next door. Our waitress acted annoyed we had our children right away or she may have been annoyed we were there. I am not sure. My menu was dirty and outdated. The shrimp wontons were good however, the spicy mustard was rancid.... More

My review does not include the dining room, since we were on the patio. It is a nice patio to relax at for a couple of drinks and food. This time we just had drinks and nachos, which was more than enough. Our service was pretty good, and since it is the beginning of patio season in Montana, they probably... More

We have not been to the Rex for many years, but it was our Ruby wedding anniversary so we wanted something a little more upmarket to celebrate. We should have gone on our first impressions when our coffee was slopped on the table followed by the cream. I was given a menu with the last page missing, we tried to... More

Anniversary dinner while travelling. Looking for nice restaurant. It was closed but bar open. Not the ambiance we wanted but the food was phenomenal. Even the broccoli was spectacular. Just delicious.
