The restaurant was freezing. Most of the people had their jackets on. There needs to be a balance between keeping the staff and the customers comfortable.

It was as expected. The server was SUPER nice and friendly, she took care of us and filled our orders exactly. The food was the quality we expect and get from Montana’s in Bayers Lake. They made my little boy so happy on his birthday.
Some of the dishes came out a little colder than what they should’ve been.
Overall it was really lovely

They did not serve water and we waited 10 min to order a drink. Then it was 15 min. For arrival.
food was excellent but I had to ask our waitress for napkins. As you know ribs are messy and you can’t pick anything else up till you wipe your hands.
Once I got her attention, she apologized and brought us wipes. They are excellent.
The rest of the meal went fine.

Our server, Lauryn was excellent, I watched as she had a very “disgruntled” customer who did not like her first 2 tables that she was seated at and she held herself very composed, mannerly and apologetic although the lady was very annoying. She gave us excellent service as with her other tables while trying to appease her other customer, all on a Friday evening during super rush. She needs a good high five!!

food was great , ordered the new burger with onion rings and fried onion , well fried was more like put oil , swirl and on the burger . fries very plentiful but not cooked enough for my liking . service was beyond great but that alone doesn't make for a great meal

Bar service could not keep up with the demand that night.
Waited 12 minutes for our first drinks (draft beer, glass of wine).
Meal drinks way late as well...
Music too loud for the type of customer that night.

The veggie burger and salad was outstanding, fish and chips were the best it town and the smokehouse chicken wrap satisfied the high standards of our mother.

It was good! The menu was different but still had a decent amount of options. The service was very good and efficient. I like how the restaurant is complying with the health authority guidelines, it gives a better and different kind of experience

Very limited menu compared with their pre-pandemic menu. I opted for the chicken Caesar salad which tasted nice but most of the lettuce looked rather tired. The service was good although it is difficult to hear what the servers say because of their masks.

Had the honkin beef rib. It was excellent as usual. The meat was prepared to perfection. Service was a-one. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Place was basically empty, where did the hostess sit us but next to the takeout pick up as per the reservation and wouldn't change My steak was unevenly cooked asked for medium was rare for the most part the emphasis of the staff is to get the takeout orders ready for the pickup driver then the patrons inside the restaurant, times may have changed but bad service is still bad service. Overall I was disappointed with the quality of the service and food.

Can’t remember his name. But our server was absolutely amazing. Recently moved from Ontario and had only been at Montana’s for like 9 days. Very friendly, attentive and had the whole table smiling and laughing for the whole visit.

The food is decent enough for a chain restaurant, but the presentation is lacking. My steak dinner looked like I had done it at home quickly and threw it in a plate. We also had to keep following up with the server rather than them checking in with us.

Based on this visit, I would not recommend to a friend. I got the ribs and wings combo and my wife got a steak. My ribs were legitimately cold and my wife's steak, whilst cooked well, was barely like warm, to the point that the chunk of herb garlic butter on the steak literally didn't melt at all, so she just put it on her potatoes.

Montana's is usually decent for a chain restaurant, but not this time.

Service was great and fast. I have limited choices at any restaurant, due to food intolerances, but fish is usually on any menu, and I always order it. I had the one piece battered fish and it was terribly undercooked. YUCK !

I wasn’t sure if my reservation had worked as I was the first time doing this. We were greeted and seated straight away. The service was great we didn’t have to wait long for any of our food. The food was delicious and it made our night. We don’t get to go out often so this was a good night.

While I have had many great tasting meals at Montana’s this meal was disappointing. I had the chicken lettuce wraps. The lettuce was brown on the edges and other parts wilted. The chicken seasoning pretty nonexistent. There was way too much sauce and it was all plopped on the top of the cheese so you got a mouthful of it at once and not mixed with chicken. It was also impossible to scrape it off without losing the cheese. Had I been asked how my meal was I would have said disappointing but I wasn’t asked. As I was with friends i didn’t want to make a fuss.

We ordered the ribs which were ok but they were on the dry side and not served very warm. We were not provided with extra sauce but found it at the table with other condiments after our meal was finished. Would have been nice if our server offered it to us when served our meal. We had to ask for cutlery and napkins, twice. Mini-donuts were tasty. We've had better ribs elsewhere and this meal was not really worth the cost we were charged. Might return to try the steak sandwich but unlikely to be a regular visitor to Montana's.

Excellent chain restaurant, would have been 5 stars but they had ran out of the one item we went for. Will definitely eat there again.

The server spilled the food on my son by accident. They made up for it by giving him a meal for free. A little pricey but will be returning.
