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

This was a second visit & it was so much better this time. Our food was excellent, the service was great, our server was pleasant. We are so glad we gave Montana`s a second chance.

I went to Montana's for lunch recently and ordered the $15 steak "special" which comes with a choice of chips or salad. The portion was about what one expects for that price - a medium amount of beef. The steak was cooked correctly to order (medium rare) and the side salad was very good. I also received a free appetizer... More

Relaxed atmosphere and great staff. Food was well prepared and very large portions. One my best experiences at a Montana's. I had the sirloin and it was cooked a little more than I like but that could be an identity thing, I should have checked with the server as to degrees of doneness. I ordered medium rare but probably should... More

Came in solo and asked for the bar. I was told it would be 5 to 10 minutes as they were staggering seating. It would be 30 minutes for the restaurant. I was given a pager. After 20 minutes, I asked again. There were a few empty seats and 2 tables which hadn't been cleared. Another 10 minutes and I... More

Had to wait quite a while for a table but the staff were working very hard to get tables cleared off ready for the next people. We had 4 kid meals and 2 adult meals. We ordered right away and got our food very quickly. The food was really good. We also got drink refills promptly

We went to Montana's before going to a movie at the Tillicum theatre. I ordered the Mac and Cheese with a side of fries. The mac and cheese was decent but the fries were horrid. It seemed as though they were undercooked. My fiancé ordered the pulled pork sandwich which he said was decent as well. However, the food took... More
