“Good food, a little pricey”
Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

Always a pleasure to eat here for lunch. Montgomery's do really tasty traditional dinners. Can be a little pricey if you just get side salads but heap on the champ and vegetables and you'll not need to go near the biscuit tin till dinner time.

“Fantastic breakfast, best in town!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Their fry for breakfast is good quality and very tasty! We've been here for lunch with the kids. All kids meals were lovely, a good portion size and great value. Tray bakes and scones are also yum!

“Breakfast to remember!!!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Been today the second time in this restaurant and looked a bit deserted at 9.10am. Ordered the full monty on the breakfast menu and sat down and waited while enjoying a very good coffee. It was a good 10 minutes until the food arrived but it was worth it. I have never had a breakfast like that. Proper cooked bacon and very good thick sausages along with a properly cooked egg. Even got a coffee top-up which you don't see in many places.
Well done guys! The only let down was the ambient temperature, it was a bit cold for me.

“Hidden gem for breakfast or lunch in Ballymena”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Short review..... Great home cooked food. Montgomery's have a good selection of hearty home cooked food for breakfast and lunch including morning and afternoon teas and coffees, scones buns and tray bakes. Their portion size for lunch will keep you going the rest of the day!, however you can ask for a half portion. The staff here are ever so friendly and you are sure to be made to feel at home. Best coffee in Ballymena!

“Excellent Home Cooked Food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Arrived today at just gone mid day - no dishes on display - waited a few minutes and we were furnished with Lasagne, Pork Loin, Chowder, Beef Stroganoff, Salmon and a chicken dish.
Side dishes of rich, mash, chips, salad and a mountain of roasted vegetables.

We both went for the Beef stroganoff with rice and vegetables, it was hot, plentiful and delicious.

The restaurant was busy and the pianist playing melodies in the corner added to the atmosphere.

Tea and coffee was offered when our meal was over and the staff could not have been more
helpful.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to a friend. I cannot wait to go back and sample some more of the mouthwatering dishes on offer.
