This is a very old lounge but has some unique features. A window that looks into the pool. A mermaid. Good selection of local brews cool when it's so hot out, and very casual. Kinda like an old pair of your favourite blue jeans, you can't wear em every day, but it sure feels good when you do.

I was told that GQ Magazine said this was the best destination bar around. Now it is good but I don't think it warrants a plane trip to catch the action. The Sip-n Dip is known for this gigantic fishbowl drink with 10 shots of different rums and you get that all for $28.00. I had one and enjoyed it... More

We sat at the bar and had a great time! It was like a tiki bar with a twist. Watching the merpeople, yes, one gal and two guys, swim around was something you'll have to see in person to believe it! The bartender was attentive and the ambiance was groovy! We knew about this place from CBS Sunday Morning. Pat... More

We went for the Sunday brunch with the mermaids. Honestly I thought there would be a line and tons of kids waiting to see the mermaids. We were the only ones with a kid and it was a bit dark. But we proceeded to go ahead and try the buffet, needless to say their food was amazing! !!!! I mean... More

This is the most interesting lounge ever - an old tiki bar from the 60s with a mermaid swimming in the hotel pool during certain times (and hotel guests other times) for the patrons to watch (and tip). Shows are only at certain times so check out the schedule. Read up on the pianist, who has been playing there since... More

Great Falls is a very quiet place so when I found myself there for work I was not expecting to find much to do in the evenings. That was generally true, but all of the locals I interacted with recommended a visit to the sip-n-dip. It wasn't much to look at from the outside, but as promised there were "mermaids"... More

Visiting Great Falls I suppose you've got to come here to see for yourself don't you?! Just came for a look. Piano Pat was giving the entertainment socks, she's going for over 50 years I was told. The mermaids were a little less exotic than I expected. Had a quick drink and chat with the friendly staff and left, able... More

We went so we could see the infamous mermaid, but unfortunately the pool was having mechanical issues, so if you really want to see the mermaid, I would say call ahead to check. We ordered some drinks and appetizers. Our waitresses switched before we got our food and the new one seemed to have no clue what we ordered. I... More
