My wife and I stopped in here for a drink. The woman behind the bar couldn't crack a smile if her life depended on it. People were bringing kids in to pose with the mermaid behind the bar (very different for our Alberta roots), and Piano Pat was droning out some Johnny Cash medley in her own style (kudos for... More

First off, let me start by saying that " I Love This Bar" .....the Sip n Dip is a must visit in Great Falls!! Don't judge me but I have been to quite a few drinking establishments and all I can say about this place is if you looked up the word Kitsch in the dictionary, the Sip n Dip... More

This place is very run down, no mermaids, just kids in the hotel pool. Very dark..... I don't get it....we walked in and walked right back out.

This was my second visit to the Sip 'n Dip Lounge. My husband and I had an overnight stay in Great Falls and just had to return to this establishment. What makes this bar so appealing is the uniqueness of the atmosphere: live mermaids, indoor tiki bar, and a keyboard player that has performed there for decades. However, on this... More

We were disappointed that the mermaids don't work on Sundays or Mondays, but this campy tiki lounge serves Montana beers and is worth checking out. Definitely an unusual place, and I could see it being a lot of fun on a weekend.

This Lounge was featured on CBS TV and in GQ Magazine and should be on your bucket list. If you are traveling between Glacier National Park and Yellowstone, make a beeline for Great Falls and the O'Haire Motor Inn. Just check ahead for the mermaids and Pat's Piano schedule. This place gets a wonderful mix of people of all ages.... More

A small lounge with a tiki bar vibe where everyone is friends. Spend the evening meeting people and watching mermaids. They have a full restaurant menu at night, I recommend the sample platters a nice variety of good food.

This is a great pkace. If you want different than usual this is it. Fun atmosphere with the piano singer and mermaids. Kind of like going back in time. Worth the time to check this place out. I have never seen anything like this and that is refreshing

I read the reviews & we happened to be in GF sat night before our flight Sunday morning. It is unique to have the mermaid swimming as you order drinks so that's interesting. Maybe worth seeing once. But, overall the place is pretty much a dump. A few slot machines to the side as well. Place was packed. Service was... More
