We ate at Rex today as we were traveling to Glacier National Park. I had the Chicken Quesadilla and my husband had the Buffalo Burger. Both were delicious and eating outside on the patio was the perfect atmosphere for two weary travellers.

Saw this place on Travel Channel sometime back and booked based on the high recommendation. Sat outside on patio and wait staff was very attentive and friendly. Took our order right away and refilled our bar order without us asking. Food was delivered in timely manner; but I guess I was expecting the prime rib to just bowl me over.... More

Our first time in Billings and we chose REX because of the decent menu choices and fair prices. I ordered the BabyBack Ribs and Chicken combo which came with Bourbon BBQ Beans, Coleslaw and freshly baked bread. My husband ordered the Smoker Sampler: Brisket, Hot Link, Chicken, Ribs and Garlic Bread. Our food was very tasty, our server was attentive... More

Family road trip and we ate here before our destination. We were traveling from Manitoba, a long 14 hour drive along the interstate, but with a bit of research for a local non-chain steak house serving Buffalo - this was the place to try out. We checked in to our accommodations and headed downtown. Downtown Billings was full of people... More

We have been here for New Year's Eve dinner and Sunday Brunch. Slightly above average food but not worth the extra money you spend to get it. Had reservations for New Year's Eve and had to wait about 45 minutes to be seated.

I went to Rex with 14 people and we all had a great time. The food was very good and the lady who served us was great and so nice. We had our own room and we loved the space. The prices were very fair. I would highly recommend it.

We met several friends here for lunch while visiting Billings. We had a very nice lunch outside on the patio. Our food was excellent and so was the service. I highly recommend eating here while in Billings.

Have only eaten there twice, however both times everyone in our party of four really enjoyed their food. Both times we ate out on the patio which was very nice. The server was friendly and helpful. I will go out of my way to eat there again.

After a long day of travel we wanted a pet friendly restaurant & their patio allows leashed dogs. It was a wonderful evening but our waitress had a party of 30 inside & a party of 15 on the patio. We waited 30 minutes before even getting a glass of water. It did not start out good but the manager... More

The Red has great food but the restaurant is extremely noisy unless you go really early. Tables are rather close together so does not feel very private so not so good for date night.
