This is very hard for me to do because I literally have been going to this place for 3 years now and I've always been beyond satisfied however, last night was a disaster to say the least. First, i brought people from out of state because i wanted them to have the same experience that we've had. DID NOT HAPPEN.Mistakes... More

From their website: "The Rex is located in a turn of the century building in the heart of downtown historic district of Billings, Montana." We had the Ahi Tuna Appetizer and the Beer Battered Shrimp. Both were delicious. Lala, at the bar, was very attentive, and added to our enjoyment. There are two different menus for this restaurant/bar combo. We... More

We chose the Rex because it has been known for its fine dining in our area. The food was served elegantly. The onion rings were soooo good just as I had remembered them from several years ago. They had a wonderful light coating with mild tasting onions. The prime rib was excellent which my husband chose. I had shrimp which... More

The Rex Restaurant Bar & Grill on Montana Ave still served an very enjoyable meal. We were staying Billings once again and went with our traveling buddies for dinner. We were curious if The Rex would be as good 4 years later. It was. Our friends really enjoyed it too. We started with Caesar salad, really good, excellent dressing. The... More

Enjoyed an evening meal with friends. We had the fried mushroom, shrimp wantons, spinach salad, bison tenderloin, and chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream with raspberry sauce. All very good with the bison tenderloin being one of the best steaks I've ever had. Very Tender and cooked just as ordered :)

We enjoyed our dinner, we all had a different steak and we each cleaned our plate. We liked the history of the resturant.

2 parts to this place; old dining room side and newer grill with outdoor seating. I'll cover the dining room as that was this evening for our group of 7. Superb wait staff. Attentive, suggestive and very professional. Additional staff deserves a mention as they were like ghosts picking up empty plates without anyone in our party having to say... More

I hadn’t been to the Rex for 7 or 8 years, and Michael had never been there, so during May’s Artwalk, we decided to stop for dinner. As it was a beautiful night, we were happy to be able to get a table on the patio. The wine selection was nice, and we each ordered a glass – merlot and... More

Enjoyed early dinner midweek with four couples at the Rex, an historic hotel in downtown Billings. Excellent service. Very attentive waitress. Surprisingly good house wines. Pricey entrees; yet very good food. The shrimp linguini, Alaskan halibut special and filet were delicious. Steaks are definitely their speciality. Finally don't miss their lovely outdoor seating around gas firetables.
