    Service was good and food was good, but leaving a 1 star review as this restaurant reported me for being a "no show" despite me eating there at my reservation time. I take my punctuality seriously and I know Opentable does as well, so for Montanas to flag me as a no show is disgusting.

    Poor service and how do you overcook a hamburger to the point of shoe leather?. We were seated and ignored for almost 20 minutes and after 4 passes by waitstaff did someone final stop and take our order. Drinks still took another 15 min to hit the table. Food was another 30 mins, 2 of the 3 meals were enjoyed. However my almost $20 cheese burger was cold and dryer then the sandbox at the park. Took almost another 30 min to get the bill and leave. Service was terrible. I might excuse this if the place wasn't wasn't busy as it was after the lunch rush.

    My steak was so tough there were mouthfuls I couldn't eat and I ordered it medium it came to me rare. My baked potatoe came wrong, and I ordered the garlic compound butter for my steak which was frozen and wouldn't melt on my steak. Our service was fairly good except our waiter took the order wrong. We went to order dessert only to find out they were sold out of all but 2 desserts. Very disappointed, it was our first NYE out together and we've been together 18 years.

    The waitress came several times to tell us they were training in the kitchen and we were ok with that but the two dinners for the men were cold..We took our son & daughter-in-law for their 25th anniversary ,her birthday & our 54th anniversary it was their first time and only our 2nd..So needless to say we sure didn't feel we got the best for our $200.00 and a tip of $40.00 as it wasn't her fault.. Hopefully this will help this Montanas' in the future for others .........

    Our waitress Carrie was very absent. We were there for 1 hr. Ordered two appetizes and 2 entrees. She came over a total of 4 times, 1 was to take our order and 1 was for a drink we fill. She did not once ask how our meal was. When it came time for the bill, she saw that we had two gift cards and a debit card on the table and instead of using the merchant machine herself she left us unattended to use it. A customer should not be doing your job for you. This is why we did not leave a great tip - if the service was better, a larger tip would have been offered. In the future, I suggest the servers actually take care of their table from start to finish. Also, this would have been completely understandable if the place was packed, however it was VERY dead. We go to Montana's a lot, first time at the St. Catharine's location, so this was all a surprise as we are familiar with the service, atmosphere and food at your restaurant. Food was absolutely to die for - SHOUT OUT TO OUR CHEFS - great job!

    Made a reservation for 630 on Saturday. Arrived around then and was seated immediately. The lovely waitress came over to take our drink order as well get our order for food (app was spinach dip, then we got ribs and pulled pork for our main). Our 2 pepsis drinks arrived immediately. Our app took well over a half hour and they kept saying our order was coming “in a few minutes.” While the manager and the waitress would occasionally apologize, we sat there and watched order after order of Skip the Dishes get picked up while not a single table in the restaurant was served. I’m not sure if they intentionally get prioritized but it sure felt like it. We waited an hour before giving up and asking for our bill (they ended up comping our 2 Pepsis and app). There is something inherently wrong here. I guess it’s ok if you order via skip the dishes but if you are walking in and hoping to eat in any kind of quick fashion, you may want to double check or bring a snack ;)

    The only that I could complain about was a child who was sitting on the opposite side of my bench and he was screaming at the top of his lungs and kicking his bench - otherwise, everything was great. The server was very polite and very efficient.

    Food prep quality has declined. Veggie Burger patty was overdone. Fish & Chips too crispy outside and underdone inside. Coffee way too strong. Only 3 desserts offered. , I've visited Montana's frequently in the past. Was disappointed.

    Went for the steak event and they had to bring my daughter and my husband's steak out twice as it was cooked incorrectly. My daughter's was Blue and my husband's was well-done. They ended up having to bring my daughter 3 steaks total, and it never ended up being cooked correctly. The garlic bread was doughy. The kids pizza was doughy. My buttermilk chicken wasn't bad. Not a place I'm ever going to go back to.
