Date night

Stopped here for a date night. Quite busy which we expected for a Friday night. Lots of families and loud dining room. Food and service were both good. We had the ribs and the chicken and waffles. Both meals were good and enough for a take out box.

My hubby and I were out for date night. We wanted somewhere local, quick and inexpensive as we going to a movie after dinner and Montana's fit the bill. We started by splitting an order of Antojitos, a favourite of ours. Hubby ordered wings and beer. I was feeling a little more adventurous and had their new chicken and waffles,... More

We enjoyed the pulled pork nachos as appetizer. Husband and daughter had ribs and they were delicious. I made the mistake of ordering a steak. They should remove this from their menu or get a cook who knows what they are doing. I asked for a steak cooked medium. First of all, the steak was undercooked at rare. Secondly, the... More

You can count on this restaurant for consistently good service and food. Ribs are great especially on all you can eat night

We went to try this place again---but only because it was close to the movie theatre. I am glad to say that it was better than last time--I had to give a rating if "poor" based on food quality from our previous visit--however this round was much better. Wings were tasty, service was better--Canadian burger and poutine was quite good.... More

After noticing many changes to their menu (no rotisserie chicken??), I decided to order the new Fire-Grilled Salmon Salad. The picture in the menu looked very appetizing and I enjoy both salmon and avocado which come on it. When I received my salad, I received a small, dry, slightly burnt, piece of salmon which I pointed out to the waitress.... More

My kids love going to Montana's so it's the only reason we have gone on a few occasions. Every time there is always an issue. The first 2 times, food came out cold after waiting a long time for the food. Most recently there in March, and it the service was horrible. We were a table of 4 adults and... More

Well, we were a diehard Montana's family, but the last 2 visits were coupled with long waits for service and a steak that was too "gristled" and had to be sent back. The servers themselves are great, but perhaps not enough of them to manage? Not sure but we won't be back for awhile until this place makes it up... More
