The Windbag Saloon and Grill was recently purchased and completely remodeled. Beautiful remodel job however the food has completely changed from what Helena was used to. The restaurant is now more like a sports bar which is OK if that's what you're looking for. First...More

Well, let's just say sometimes new isn't better - sometimes it is. This isn't a good change - below average "pub food" poor planning on the part of new owners to put lots of televisions and crowded seating - the menu is very average. It...More

The new Windbag has the look of your standard sports bar. It's a noisy place with the patrons and piped music competing. The service was very good, not one complaint there. The food was the most limiting factor; I had the philly sandwich, a smallish...More

A year or two ago I did a review on how the Windbag seemed to be stuck in time and needed a change. Everything seemed stale. Well, I'm glad to say the Windbag has delivered in making some necessary changes. The new renovations make it...More

They serve basic pub food, but it's really good. The fish and chips are excellent. The burgers are wonderful. Great ambiance.

First off, I truly hope management reads this review and takes note - the restaurant does not take reservations (which is understandable) but they have a "seat yourself" policy as well. We were a party of five plus a baby and we waited about 20...More
