As an aside, the place has a very strange odour........the wood? It's not offensive, just odd. My friend and I came here, like a lot of other folks do, pre-movie, although for lunch, not dinner. Service was fine, unremarkable, but adequate. My friend had mac and cheese with Caesar salad and I had a Reuben sandwich with a Caesar salad.... More

So we decided to order take out. Food was prepared very fast.. Took 20 minutes which was fine. Total cost was $33 for their Mac N cheese with added chorizo as well as the waffle chicken sandwhich. Lets just say we are still very hungry after we finished. The pasta was probably the equivalent to a kids portion. We paid... More

Group of six went to dinner at Montana's on Sunday evening ... worst dinner that I've ever had in a restaurant. Drinks and orders taken promptly .... but delay in the meal delivery. 45 min in, we were advised that the kitchen had run out of baked potatoes - option to wait another 20 minutes or change orders. We opted... More

We had dinner after a movie recently and it was nice: not special, just nice. There was very little that either I could afford, or that I could eat on the menu: so many items are spiced up, and I can't do spice, and my pocketbook can't handle ribs that start at $20. Needless to say, I won't be returning... More

This is my favourite restaurant due to the wonderful apple-barbecue sauce and feta on the Vegetarian Burger. I go there at least once a month and was never disappointed with the service or food. My companions usually have steak or chicken and they never complained either. Staff is very friendly and place is always full. Since there are limited options... More

Went for a pre-movie dinner...usually get a burger but thought to mix it up a bit and ordered a special Nashville chicken BBQ plate...a desultory plating with a jokingly small little breaded chicken breast with a thumb-sized square of cornbread (used to be a real mini-loaf) with a table-spoon of soggy zucchini and a tiny dish of anemic potato salad...

After reading so many negatives, I went anyway because my sister had given me a gift card. The staff were excellent but I couldn't get over the feeling that this chain restaurant lacked passion. My wife's salad had nice chunks of beef but the lettuce was yellowed. With so much fresh local produce available, why isn't it being used? My... More

I don't think I have ever been to a worse restaurant. We arrived around 5:00pm for supper. From the time we arrived until the food arrived at the table took over an hour. My friends ribs were cold enough to have just come out of the fridge and her veggies were basically raw. My steak was so tough I had... More

I have been to other Cara Restaurants brands besides Montana's. They all seem to be slipping compared to their past. I like their current coupons promotions. The food is above average in the 65-70% range. Some of the staff could benefit from Camosun College customer service courses and further training from supervisors and managers. Generally older generation staff are better... More

My son's last day of school, graduating from Grade 4 and he wanted us to take him out to dinner to celebrate. I spent 45 minutes looking for a good place for us to go. We came here and saw the picture saying "Kids eat free, every Thursday" -- I called and asked when I made the reservation for us... More
