“Great staff, tasty food”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Had lunch on a busy Saturday. Our waiter Scott was very friendly and engaging and actually made our lunch hilariously pleasant. Our table had the burger with fries, the Southwest salad, and the wrap (chicken, bacon, bbq sauce, cheese, veggies) with a caesar salad. Other than the fries being a bit cool, everything was pretty darn good. The wrap is HUGE (as warned on the menu) and the salad was cold and crisp. They carry a nice Woodbridge chardonnay and several beers on tap. The food was a bit slow coming out (we arrived at 12:40 after the place had filled up) but the service made up for it.

“I stopped going, too many bad times in a row.”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I used to go here when it first opened, but the last few times service and food were not good, so I havent been back. For the price of a meal for two @ Montanas you could go somewhere else and get better experience. FOOD: is hit or miss, not sure how their food can be so differnet for a chain, it should be consistent. The food just has a processed feel and it has LOTS of salt. Try asking for sodium/fat content or nutritional information. I realize its not health food but still. SERVICE: again hit or miss, you could get the friendly server, or the one who leaves you with no drink refill, no follow up and you have to find her chatting or staring at her phone and its a big deal that you might want something , or wonder why the food you got doesnt match the menu description because it is missing something. There is always a long wait after you order, once my appetizer and main came at the same time. Cobb salad had old ingredients(not sure if they even still have Cobb salad) since their menu changes. Hope this helps someone,Thanks for reading!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

My husband ordered the chipotle fire cracker burger, and I had the veggie and feta burger with sweet potato fries. Both meals were delicious! Our server was great - very friendly and attentive. A great meal with great atmosphere. We stayed at Future Inns, and they have several coupons to choose from with Montana's being one of them - we had a $10 off coupon which was great.
