Went with my family, we haven't been there in years. I try not to go to the big franchises like bp, kelseys ect. Got the 10oz carved steak medium well with a baked potato Caesar salad and veg and man was it good. Everyone's meals we're on point as well as service and price was standard for this type of restaurant. Would I go again? Forsure.

Went to Montana's Saturday night 930pm in ski season.
It was extremely slow in the restaurant, about four tables total.
We were seated by one of two employees we saw working that night. The girl who served us was taking care of all tables ( again only 4 ).
I ordered a caesar drink, they come in several different options, she did not even ask how I wanted it, as she was about to leave the table I stopped her and told her how I wanted it. It didn't arrive as I had specified but I drank it anyway.
We ordered our meals a while later.
We were also considering having dessert and were ready to order but did not see our waitress on the floor in about 10 minutes, another table was there about 15 minutes and hadn't ordered yet. We decided to skip dessert and leave. Waited a bit still and finally got out waitresses attention. We waited to get a check and leave. We were never offered a water refill, plates were not cleared. With only 4 tables in an empty restaurant this type of service is unacceptable.
The food was good, we both enjoyed our meals. I wanted the salted caramel dessert but we're frustrated with lack of attention and didn't want to wait any longer.
Feeling was that service was apathetic at best, possibly a new waitress, lack of training or is part of the reason it was dead?
If in the area we may try it another time and give the business the benefit of the doubt.
Hopefully it was an anomaly.

The pasta was the wrong sauce from what was ordered. The buffalo burger was regular burger with copious amounts of sauce just drowning the bun.
Service was slow and uninterested for slow Sunday afternoon.
Never will return

Stopped in for our evening meal at 8:00pm on Dec 13th. We were seated quickly and our server attended the table in short order. Ordered coffee & tea while we looked at the menu. The tea came but the coffee didn't because they were just putting on a fresh pot. (They only have one pot on the go for a restaurant that size?) The tea was barely luke-warm bur our server was nowhere to be seen. Eventually the coffee came and we exchanged the tea for another coffee. The server was about to walk away when we reminded her that she had not taken our order yet. About 8:15pm at this point.

By 8:45pm, we were still waiting for our meals and the table next to us had been served for about 10 minutes and had been seated 20 minutes after we were. It had been a long stormy drive, we were both tired and agreed that if the meal didn't arrive in the next 10 minutes we were leaving. It arrived, just in time to keep us there. Had to ask for the condiments for our burgers. (Yes, all that time just to get two burgers!) While waiting for those, we realized that there were no utensils or napkins on the table. Another wait.

We were not in good humour by this time. The food tasted OK but the fries were so salty I couldn't eat mine. The bison burgers tasted fine but they were really small considering the price. Food portions were small overall.

They removed our plates and then the next wait was for the bill. As we waited, I noticed our server cleaning tables but could not get her attention. They seemed to be very short of servers. Either that or ours was poorly trained.

Any restaurant can have a bad night, but this experience left us dissatisfied and angry. We mentioned it at a social event later that week and a couple of people said they had had the same problem and would not be returning.
