“Would NEVER eat here again.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

I heard Montana's was good food, nice atmosphere. Service was great until we had a problem with our meal, ordered fish and chips, someone needs to tell them you CANNOT cook fish in chip fryers, its cooks at 160 and fries at 190, it was burnt on outside and mushy and raw inside. Returned food. Waited oh... an hour or so and nothing, waitress was avoiding us, finally got her attention and she sent out the cook who proceeded to give us a fish making lesson. Here's the thing, I spent my entire teens working in a authentic English fish and chip place, from scratch, so I KNOW exactly how to cook fish n chips. Anyways, they sent out more food, even grosser (is that a word?) greasy, slimy, burnt on outside. Even my husband's beer was "off", tasted bad, and he is a long time beer connoisseur. In the end they refunded the meal. But the waitress was so rude after we returned our order and we actually had to hunt her down to pay our bill? Will NEVER go there again. Oh and we ended up very sick from what we did eat for 2 days. Thanks Montana's same to you.

“bad service and orders wrong”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

very disappointing. it took about an hour to get our food and when it came, my husband's rare steak was well done and what they brought me was entirely the wrong dish. This was our third time giving the restaurant a chance but unless they overhaul that place and do something about the quality of service, we won't be back again.

“Average franchise food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

What more can I say, it's a franchise with the same pre-prepared food. Some choices are a bit better than others but overall not the best.
