The Rex has an old club warm feel (dark woods) to it. Servers are good. The onion rings ("Best in Billings") live up to the claim. The regular menu is smoked meats and read meats. That night a fish special was offered that sounded delectable: halibut stuffed with crab meat, a soft cheese and spinach. So, I was lured away... More

Stopped in for dinner as we passed through Billings. Wait staff was very professional and they have a good craft beer selection. I went with the brisket sandwich and it was quite good. My partner in crime and travel has a salad which was excellent. It is an upscale place, with a big open patio filed with local business types... More

My son recommended this place to us as we passed thru Billings on a Road Trip. He never leads me astray!. Extremely friendly, attentive staff and really good food. The ribs were great and I'm picky about my bar b que! Live jazz in the background rounded out a perfect evening. We'd eat there again in a heartbeat!

The worst restaurant we've gone to. We tried it twice while here and thank god we left after about 2 hours of waiting for a salad and nachos. My only advice is don't go

The price of the food is quite expensive, and the taste and service does not necessarily match the price. The service was slow and for the price--the food was not up to par.

Primarily used for casual business lunches. Outside patio is well shaded and quiet. Parking is limited. Good selection of food.

On our way to Yellowstone we stopped and ate at the Rex. We were seated in the outdoor eating area which was lovely. There is also easy parking available in a private parking lot. The food could have used more seasoning. The real problem was the service. We had to ask several times for water, and waited for the waiter... More

Out of town family had never been to the Rex. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and drinks. Our waiter was right there on the ball and we never had to ask for anything. The BBQ items were a big hit with the crowd. The portions were large, and had really good flavor. Home made tomato soup was a luxury for my... More
