Rex was recommended by a friend. I must say the ambiance is great. The server was great as well, even the owner was present and touching tables. All great things for a successful restaurant. My only complaint was the BBQ sampler platter was dry as the Sonoran desert. Even soaking it with the sauce variety at the table I felt... More

Wonderful atmosphere to experience Montana. Great service. Nice variety of appetizers and wide range of menu items. Enjoyed the steak. Yum. Look around the hotel; historic location and photographs.

I try to go the the Rex every time I'm in Billings and this trip was no exception. They have great food all around but I go for the gumbo. I lived in New Orleans and this is as good as I've ever had.

The Prime Rib is always excellent. Very tender and flavorful. We enjoy the atmosphere of the dining area and had excellent, attentive servers as usual. One of the most consistent in Billings to always be worth the visit.

Montana Ave Steak, on the menu, perfection every time. My bride and I dine here at least once a month and look forward to the experience.

Stopped here for lunch and had excellent service and great food. I had a salad with salmon that was very good. We couldn't eat outside since it was chilly, but the outside dining looked like it would be very inviting in warmer weather.

We've visited this place quite a few times and it has always been the best food and service that we have had in Billings. The chef is very personable and he always prepares things exactly the way you order it. Example: my husband always orders a special cut for his steak and he gets the best of the best every... More

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.
