America is filled with bizarre little nooks of - well - odd Americana - and this place ranks right up there. It's dark, stuffy, old, weird, tired and almost scary - but at the same time it's a novelty, friendly, cute, crazy and fun. Bartender Kyle is a terrific and unique dude - get to know him and tip big!... More

It's a relaxing place to stop for cocktail after work and unwind. They have mermaids and merman swimming in a glass pool that makes it very calming. The people that frequent this establishment are very nice and pleasant to be around. I highly recommend a visit you won't be disappointed.

Piano Pat! What more can I say? This was a once in a lifetime experience with mermaids and amazing music. Would not want to eat here, but it was very entertaining and I wouldn't have wanted to miss it.

Take a trip back in time and enjoy the view. The mermaids are of course, the main attraction here. But, Pat the piano player is the best. She plays, you sing along...it is a great time!

These folks did a first-class job of hosting us in a private room near the restaurant with five star appetizers finger foods and other good things that served as a very adequate dinner and Christmas party.

You guessed it. Mermaids In the pool behind the bar for entertainment. That's kind of cool and original. It's even on the top ten bars in America. Good job. However, if the bar didn't seem so dark and dirty it would be even better.

The Sip and Dip Lounge is considered a place that you must see in Great Falls, MT. I was curious about the ad for their mermaids and there was actually a merman, too. The food was quite good, and it was delightful to see the reactions of the children at seeing "real" mermaids! It is worth stopping to see for... More

I have never had anyone come into Great Falls from another town and not know what the Sip n Dip was. It seems to be quite the staple here. Its different but not for everyone. It has a great energy and a small but cozy atmosphere.

Small but energetic place. Good food and good service. The lady who plays the piano has been doing it for over 50 years and she is a bit of a local legend....her piano playing is great and her singing is to be experienced.

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!
