I was originally going to go to the mandarin on valentine's day but their wait was to long and their service seemed unusually slow so we went over to montanas. They met our expectantions and more even though they also seemed busy. We will definitely recommend and return.

We wound up here because our first choice was booked. It was just an average experience in every way. Almost nothing was memorable, bad or good.

We were at Montana's for a Sunday lunch with our family. We got there at 11:30 AM so the place was pretty empty. Service was OK to start but quickly started going downhill. Our server tried to be friendly but it came off as a little creepy, too much info. After we got our drinks he came back 3 times... More

Stopped in for a quick bite with extended family, group of 9. We were seated quickly and very well taken care of during our visit. Very friendly and efficient staff. Food was hot and tasty...really enjoyed their spinach and artichoke dip.

Grabbed their grilled chicken sandwich, i felt as if the chicken was too over-cooked. I told the waitress, she said it's just the style of the chicken, and it's supposed to be that crunchy.. Fries were okay. If i am in the mood for a nice sandwich, i would probably consider elsewhere. Ive tried some of their other foods, again,... More

Used to love Montana's for lots of food at a reasonable price. Things have changed. Portions are smaller and prices are higher. I ordered the Fajitas. The waiter asked if I wanted guacamole with it. Found out later that was charged extra (a con) and was in a tiny bowl and tasted very bland. The Fajitas with no refined beans.... More

Our group arrived about 5:45, we were promptly seated and the waiter took our orders in a timely manner. The food was served a short time later. The food was good. While it was not the best steak I've ate it was tender, tasty and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was conducive to conversation. I would not hesitate to eat here... More

We were at this location for Sunday lunch as a group of eight. We were seated promptly and drink orders were taken right away. When the drinks came, there was bit of confusion on the server's part as to which drink was which - coke or root beer, diet or regular. Food was delivered by someone else - kitchen staff,... More
