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

This was our destination on a Harely ride. We were not disappointed. With the ambiance, mermaids and Piano Pat, what more could you ask for. The drinks were fine, it was Prime Rib night and it was good, my buffalo burger was over cooked, but not bad. We had a great time. Make sure to get there around 8pm, it... More

Although food is served, I would never, ever, ever classify this as a "restaurant". I give it stars not for food, not for beverage, not for ambiance, but solely because nothing else quite like it exists on this planet, and it is definitely worth a visit if you know what to expect. Very cocktail lounge-type 50s decor - turquoise and... More

Just had to visit after a local performance. The 'fishbowl' is still just as good. Piano Pat is still hammering away at the piano. Been there at least 50+ years. Didn't try the food. Drinks still just ok.
