Took a friend for dinner on her birthday. Ribs were excellent, however fries only warm. Kerry, our server, immediately had a fresh plate of fries from the kitchen, hot from the fryer. She was also very attentive and friendly, hope to see her next time we are there. The antlers on the birthday hat were great.

Went to Montana's for a meal with a group - there were approximately 14 of us. It was extremely noisy and we were squeezed into a corner - very difficult to get in and out to the inside of the table seating. The waiters were very good, service was a bit slow but it appeared to be on the kitchen... More

Went here with my husband for dinner on a Tuesday evening. It was a great experience. The staff were super friendly and smiling which doesn't always happen. They were very welcoming and a bunch of them even said goodbye when we left and told us to have a great evening. The food was excellent. We enjoyed it so much. I... More

This is a typical Americana restaurant. Deep fried or grilled. I went here a couple of times. They have really good service and a good abience. I tryed the kapow shrimps, which are really good. Deep fried pickles, mac n' cheese and rib bits. All of the food was good, and prices are mid-range.

Made a reservation Saturday night (recommended).Had our own private area for party of seven. Had a great waitress answer our questions and made our meal choices easy. Food was yummy and plentiful. Steak was yummy and tender as were the wings. Burger yummy . In fact all dishes were enjoyed. I'll be back again soon.

Great restaurant, and popular too, judging by the parking lot. I love the staff, they are dressed in cute plaid lumberjack shirts, dark jeans and boots. They are so friendly, helpful and upbeat. I love the decor, it's all wood, it's very unique, and it makes me feel like I am somewhere out west. We ordered veggie burgers and fries... More

We had an evening meal here. We ordered the three rib and shrimp meal and three rib with chicken wings meal. My husband had requested a jacket potato with his meal, but it was sometime before staff came to say that they had no jacket potato the potato delay is the reason why I think my fries and shrimp were...

We stopped by this restaurant on our way home from a weekend getaway! We both tried a rib dinner and were very pleased. There was enough on our plates to bring home for a bedtime snack. The cornbread was delicious....I wish I bought some of that to take home....yum! yum!

Friday night out for my birthday, my choice was Montana's. Wanted some good old meat. Had the 6 bone rib and chicken wing combo with fries/coleslaw and corn bread. Ribs and chicken were very good, great flavour. Couldn't finish the whole meal - had a piece of the corn bread - excellent.

Thank Marco D
