Description: The Sip 'n Dip is the home of the Montana Mermaids and Piano Pat. A close drive to Glacier National Park, the Sip 'n Dip Lounge is part of the O'Haire Motor Inn. We're unique and nothing like you've ever experienced before. Stop in for a bite to eat, watch the mermaids, listen to Pat, stay in one of our comfy rooms. We don't care what you do while you're here, just that you're here. There's something in the water at the Sip 'n Dip!

“Unique Must See Experience”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

When I tell my East Coast friends of the Sip 'n Dip experience, they tend to think that I must be exaggerating yet each one that has come to visit and see this unique find in Great Falls agrees that it is a must see when one comes to Visit Great Falls. Make sure to tip Pat for her organ renditions of Johnny Cash!

“Nothing Else Like It In Montana”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

If you have not been to the Sip 'n Dip yet, you are missing out on a good time. Between live mermaids, Piano Pat and the friendly service, you will find nothing else like it in Montana! A little piece of history that everyone should experience! Can't wait to go back!!

“must see -- at least once”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

We were quite surprised at how small the space was. We came to eat but ended up only having a drink before going elsewhere to eat. We went to the bar to get our drinks (we were sitting in a secluded corner) and found the lady working behind the bar to be sweet, helpful and friendly --- our compliments to her. We enjoyed the Mermaids (heard about them on the Travel Montana website) and would like to have stayed longer. Maybe next time we will have to try earlier in the day and during summer.

“A must go”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The Sip 'n Dip is one of a kind, and not the kind of place I'd expect in Great Falls. It's kitchy, tiki decorated with live mermaids!!! What more could you ask for!!!

“Good for a laugh”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

If you're visiting Great Falls, this place is worth a drink; where else are you going to see mermaids swimming in a tank (actually, the hotel swimming pool) behind the bar? We would have come by, even if we weren't staying there.

Thanks for stopping in! I noticed that our service rating from you wasn't in the top two bullets. If you'd like to share why, please email me at omi@mcn.net. I'd love to hear how we could improve on that. Thanks too, for taking the time to review us. We appreciate it!
