First of all we wanted a late lunch after hiking all day so we were there around 3pm. We were told the mermaids didn't star until 6pm and on Monday's there is only one. As luck would have it, the mermaid called in sick! So...More

This is always a great place to go with friends to unwind for awhile. It's even nationally recognized. Be sure & don't miss the mermaids.

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...More

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.

Thank you for your kind words. I will pass this on to Piano Pat! I would encourage you to order from the restaurant downstairs. The food is good. Come see us again.

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!

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.

Thank you for your nice review. We appreciate it very much! One of the favorite things we get to do is share the mermaids with the kids during our family friendly Sunday Brunch. Watching their reaction to the mermaids always brings a smile!

Anyone is welcome to stop in before 9pm. The merpeople are usually in the tank by 6pm. However, it is an adult lounge so please keep that in mind. We cannot control the customer conversations, actions, etc. We are... More

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!
