I was happy to see a new restaurant in the area (I believe Montana's opened in May, 2012) and it looks spectacular on the inside. Very authentic and warm with a lot of wood and pictures of animals and a few heads (moose, caribou). The seating is comfortable and the wait staff is extremely friendly, helpful and nice. This is a family restaurant so if you're looking for a romantic meal, this is not the place for you.
The food, however, is average at best. I tried to order the brisket but was told it's already smothered in sauce and I didn't want the sauce so that option was out. Why they have the brisket covered in BBQ sauce is a mystery. If brisket is good, it shouldn't need sauce.
So the waitress recommended the special which was sweet chili glaze with an 8 oz sirloin with two skewers of shrimp. I didn't taste the glaze at all. The shrimp was supposed to be grilled but it tasted boiled and lacked flavor. The sirloin was so full of fat that I couldn't eat it. For my sides I had a baked potato (no complaints there) and cole slaw which was very creamy and full of vinegar so I didn't eat it. It also came with thin deep fried onion rings which my spouse and enjoyed.
My spouse had the NY steak sandwich (which cost $14.99) and thought it was just okay but wouldn't recommend it.
Montana's has a great atmosphere but the food won't bring us back.
