The Rex does not change very often, but I think they could. It is just a decent steak and the homemade sauces are mostly cream based, which is addicting.

When the sun is shinning, you had better go to dinner early if you want to sit outside. Good food, nice atmosphere, and one of the better places in Billings to have a nice dinner. I prefer the outdoor seating, so this is a "summer" restaurant for me.

During our recent trip out West, we ate at Rex. We were seated on the patio, which was very nice and would recommend it pending good weather. Our server was very attentive. I had the Smoker Sampler. Each meat selection was cooked nicely and was every flavorful. My wife had the Buffalo Burger. It was cooked to her liking and... More

Last night of business travel and headed to Rex for dinner. Great specials and a nice selection of local brews. Had the Alaskan Halibut special. Very nicely done. Highly recommend this place for a home cooked dinner feel.

We went to The Rex with friends in town visitng from New Zealand. I will say that The Rex was one of the few restaurants open on Labor Day so I will give it credit for that. Our friends wanted to take us to a steak house to repay our hospitality and The Rex has been known for their steaks/meat.... More

We had an amazing meal for our 31st anniversary at the Rex. The seating was excellent, service superb and food delicious. On the upper end of the price scale, but well worth it.

excellent food, but the waitress was definitely not pleasant to us. She never smiled at us once, though she attended to us just fine.

My husband and I had dinner there on Wednesday night and the food was excellent. We love to watch people so always choose the outdoor patio. Tom had Oysters on the half shell and crab cakes and I had the bar burger, you can't miss on these selections. We finished it off by splitting the Godiva Chocolate cake (molton lava... More

Monday night a vast majority of the top restaurants in downtown Billings are closed, but not the Rex. We drove by on bikes and were attracted to the outdoor seating on a hot, August night, and so were the flies. Our young server(male) was in WAY over his head which was partly due to all the other restaurants being closed... More

I ate here one evening with a large group (50+ people) with a preset menu. The food was very good and the atmosphere of the restaurant fun and inviting. I will not judge them on service but they did a great job with such a large group. It took a while to serve that meany people but all the food... More
