Went to the Sip & Dip on Friday night. The ambience was tiki-tiki style. They had Friday night music, performed by Pat- the organist. She played a variety of songs - sung in"William Shatner" style. While the music was being played - there we mermaids swimming behind the bar. Drinks were cheap. The... read more

Seeing this place on Tripadvisor, I just had to visit while in town on business. A co-worker and I stopped by. Unfortunately, the mermaids don't swim on Sunday or Monday (we stopped in on Monday), but we still thoroughly enjoyed this dive bar (no pun intended). I can't comment on food, but the beer was cold and service good. It's... More

We decided after never being there in 20 years it was time to go. The hamburgers are huge and the best we have had in Great Falls. The staff was very friendly. The restaurant is attached to the hotel and is small. The bar is loud, very small but a must see when in Great Falls.

This place hasn't changed much in 30 years. It is still a great place to go when in town. They still have live mermaids swimming in the pool behind the bar, the drink prices are reasonable,and the food is good.

Wasn't there very long. Staff nice but not overly friendly, at least not to me. Pretty standard fare in my experience. I've had friends tell me otherwise (they love it) but to me it was okay.

Do yourself a favour and go to this bar. I can't even explain how hilarious it is. Sure it's not the cheapest place in town, but you'll probably end up sharing your table with someone interesting and drinking large cocktails and wondering what on earth is going on. In my books, that's a fun night out.

Good service, huge portions, and the fishbowl is delic! Want a unique experience check it out. The mermaids come on at 9 but be there early cause it fills up fast

Maybe our expectations were too high but this place had less excitement than a funeral. The barmaid was about as friendly as a wet dishrag and we tried not to talk too loudly as to not wake up the other 3 people in the place. Don't believe everything you read online!

Everyone visiting Great Falls MUST experience the Sip 'n Dip Lounge. There is no other place like it anywhere! The decor and ambiance are exactly what I picture of piano bars back in the 70s. Make sure you visit when both Piano Pat is playing, and the mermaids are swimming. Going any other time would just not be worth it.... More

We had a wonderful time at the Sip & Dip Lounge. We had one drink and no food. Pat was playing the organ and singing and one mermaid was swimming in the tank. She was great and played to the audience. It was packed when we walked in and found one seat at the bar. A gentleman gave up his... More
