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

What do I say when service can ruin what was delicious food. I had the best glass of wine, Viognier a rare find. Was sat outside after about 15 minute wait on a Monday evening after riding all the way from Gillette. Our server seemed VERY overwhelmed even before we were sat outside as I observed him at the waitstaff... More

Decided to sit outside and dine al fresco. Probably a mistake! I had a glass of wine and when I went to take a sip, noticed there was a colony of tiny bugs back floating in my glass! The Rex did replace it and I kept a hand over my glass for the duration! My husband had the smoked brisket... More

Loved all the choices on the menu, the patio atmosphere and the friendly staff. Enjoyed the cheese board with friends and then had the buffalo which was outstanding. Made my wife jealous when I described the experience. Would return and am thankful for the recommendation Stephen Fox gave me to visit.

My family and I came in for lunch. The food was fresh and delicious. Loved the baked beans! The decor was great and our waitress was nice and came by to refill our drinks every few minutes. I highly recommend this restaurant.

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.

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
