I love this restaurant's interior, location and patio, but the food is never that great in my experience. If you go, the best, most consistent thing I've had there is the barbecue.

I was really excited to see this turn of the century restaurant. I still haven't! The lounge was open but not the restaurant, we peeked inside but didn't see anything that stood out. The food was ok but not great. I had beer cheese soup, my suggestion would be to add some beer and turn down the heat so it... More

This is a very expensive restaurant for what you get. I ordered fried shrimp with mashed potatoes and a salad. She brought my salad but no ranch dressing. I told her and she never brought it. She came back and said they were out of mash potatoes, so I told her french fries with catsup and I needed ranch dressing.... More

We ate at Rex today as we were traveling to Glacier National Park. I had the Chicken Quesadilla and my husband had the Buffalo Burger. Both were delicious and eating outside on the patio was the perfect atmosphere for two weary travellers.

Saw this place on Travel Channel sometime back and booked based on the high recommendation. Sat outside on patio and wait staff was very attentive and friendly. Took our order right away and refilled our bar order without us asking. Food was delivered in timely manner; but I guess I was expecting the prime rib to just bowl me over.... More

Our first time in Billings and we chose REX because of the decent menu choices and fair prices. I ordered the BabyBack Ribs and Chicken combo which came with Bourbon BBQ Beans, Coleslaw and freshly baked bread. My husband ordered the Smoker Sampler: Brisket, Hot Link, Chicken, Ribs and Garlic Bread. Our food was very tasty, our server was attentive... More

Family road trip and we ate here before our destination. We were traveling from Manitoba, a long 14 hour drive along the interstate, but with a bit of research for a local non-chain steak house serving Buffalo - this was the place to try out. We checked in to our accommodations and headed downtown. Downtown Billings was full of people... More

We have been here for New Year's Eve dinner and Sunday Brunch. Slightly above average food but not worth the extra money you spend to get it. Had reservations for New Year's Eve and had to wait about 45 minutes to be seated.

I went to Rex with 14 people and we all had a great time. The food was very good and the lady who served us was great and so nice. We had our own room and we loved the space. The prices were very fair. I would highly recommend it.

Thank Steve W
