If you like real Ribas that just fall off the bone. This is the Place and the specials they serve are great. Really like the Corn on the cob side dish as well as the Okra . Sometimes it is a little cooler in the restaurant but the High ceiling s and the cold weather outside is the cause as... More

Went here with my mother and son. I wanted to order something they had one other time but it was not on the menu. It was chicken breasts with cream cheese and sun dried tomatoes served with rice and veggies. They did have something similar called mushroom chicken that was good and had mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes. It wasn't... More

Went here with a gift card from family. Meal was rather bland and steak was fatty. I wouldn't recommend it unless there are no other options.

Visiting from oversees we surly missed these type of American style BBQ restaurants. We had some great burgers and potato fries (or sweet potato fries which were very good)

The portions are plenty big and the price is quite fair. The food is delicious and the staff is friendly. It's crazy busy at supper time, but if you aren't in a hurry, it's worth the wait. The main menu is great, the lunch menu is as well. The dessert menu offers something for everyone and you just MUST try... More

Our 1st visit certainly won't be our last...I absolutely loved the Tomato Basil soup...picture a homemade tomato bisque full of flavor.. Delicious. I didn't really care as much for the pulled pork sandwich..a little smoky for my liking. Hubby's 7 oz steak was cooked to perfection. Others at the table enjoyed the ribs and the Firecracker burger, For dessert they... More

I have had pretty great experiences at Montana's so far. I notice that everything they make seems to be fresh and made in house...they even have a smoker for crying out loud, but not fresh burgers! I talked to waiter about being undecided between a smoked brisket sandwich and the Canadian burger. He suggests that his favorite thing happened to... More

We were to Montana's for a meal a couple weeks back. First time in 5 or 6 years. I always liked their ribs. Had the Ribs again, but definitely not like they use to be. Great flavor, but for $20.00 there was not much for meat on the bones. Very surprised as they keep advertising it is rib time! I... More

I came here and ordered the chicken fajitas. The service was very good but even though the food portion was good I found it a little bland. The cast iron skillet didn't have the sizzle that I would expect and the food didn't have the char I like.
