I have eaten here a few times and find their food incredibly greasy. Service and atmosphere was good but I will not be back because of the food.

We were 8 in the group and arrived at 5:40pm, it was not very busy and we were seated in a private room. The staff was great, but it took about 15 minutes for someone to get our drink order and another 15 for the drinks to arrive. We finally ordered and it took well over an hour for the... More

We had the ribs which were dry and very smokey! Our steak and beef filets were tough, dry and chewy! It definitely seemed like our food spent a long time under the heat lamp before we got it! The potatoes and coleslaw were good and the deep fried pickles were good as well!

Beverages and placing orders times were good. Took far too long a wait for food. Food looked good, but was a bit on cold side. I had steak but found it was far spicier than it would be. Menu was a tad pricey for what we received. Food was average. Atmosphere was likely in keeping with its theme, so we... More

We were visiting Nova Scotia and our diet had been heavy on the sea food leaving us wanting beef. The hotel suggested Montana's so that is where we went. Upon arrival it was very busy and we had to wait for a table. Usually a good sign. Unfortunately service was less than expected and we seemed to wait forever for... More

My mother and I have made this our new stop when we go up. Love the portions and the food. My favorite is a toss up between the chicken waffle and the bison burger. Of course deep fried pickles are a must too.
