Montana's BBQ & Bar - St. Catharines
The noise level was high...but we were outside on Lake Street. It didn't interfere with our dinner at all. They seem be covering all the bases with the CRAZY-19! We were comfortable and woudl return.
For the times we are in, we enjoyed out first patio meal out
Food was good, but little things matter, like butter for baked potato and for the corn bread... drinks were good, but had to ask for water. Due to COVID, nothing was being cleared from the table until we were all done and ready to leave. This is very awkward when tables are not that big and there appetizer plates, empty glasses and such still on table when you get your meal.
Usually one of our favourite places to eat. This time, not so much. The service was slow. Thankfully the woman that seated us noticed we were still waiting and took our drink order and put our app order in. The manager came over a few mins later and said he would take the cost of the app off our bill and apologized for our wait. The waitress finally showed up and took our order. Both of our steaks were supposed to be med-well. Mine was slightly bloody and my husbands was bloody. Not a good visit for us. Will probably try again as we usually have a very good meal when we go.
The greeter was very pleasant, attractive and positive. The bathrooms are very unique and clean. The waiter was attentive, accurate and very good timing
The service was in a bit of a disarray on a Thursday night. I chose this restaurant to celebrate my anniversary and there were a lot of errors with our order. We ended up getting the wrong appetizer, wrong size steak which was also overcooked. Despite the hiccups, the food was great for the value.
My potato was cold upon arrival, they did get me another one. I asked for beans and I didn’t get them the kitchen ran out and it would be 10 minutes to make more
Everything was excellent with regards to the meal, the server staff, and the ambience. The only drawback was something the facility did not have any control over. Some asshat parked their car directly in front of the handicap ramp. I was parked in the handicapped spot beside the ramp, did this obviously obliviously excuse of a person not stop to think we would be using the ramp?
This is the worst restaurant ever cant cook a steak at all, service was not great took 40 minutes to get our food and I had to send my steak back as it was not cooked as I asked, which made my potatoes cold.
NEVER EVER EVER AGAIN WILL I RETURN
I booked bar side on my reservation but had to sit in the other side which was a little noisier than what I wanted.
From the moment we entered the doors, we felt like we belonged there. The hostess was very cordial, the service staff did everything in their power to make us comfortable, and fulfilled. The food was better than I expected. Just an super great time
Was overall delicious.. We'll be back.. And we'll be bring out of town guess with us.. See you soon..
The food was all right, they do t really do steaks well in my opinion. We ordered the special which was shrimp and lobster on top of the steak and mine had a “sauce” with it which was lobster bisque done with the lobster and the shrimp. Mine was all right, I passed most of mine off to my daughter as she did not like hers. My dad said his was “beautiful”; he had the steak and shrimp. We also had the garlic mashed potatoes and coleslaw which both were just ok. My daughter had the macaroni and cheese with bacon on top and a salad. She did not like this however, I found it to be one of the better Mac and cheeses I’ve tasted around here (niagara region). We shared the doughnuts, which was a mistake bc by the time I finished paying, there was one left for me. The toffee or caramel sauce was delicious and they were nice and hot which made the powdered sugar almost caramelize, maybe wait a moment before diving in. I also ordered corn bread to take home because we love their cornbread. If I’m being honest, it’s the only reason I agree to go here. My dad and I even suggested that the cornbread was better than the sea baked biscuits from RL. However, since this is blasphemy we also decided that we can compare apples and oranges because they’re both equally great!
Their plates really bothered me, are so big and the food put on them looks so small. The food is enough, don’t get me wrong but the plates don’t make it seem that way. Presentation wise, it looks like you’re getting ripped off. Also the edges of the plates make the plates look dirty but again that’s just me.
Finally our server, there really isn’t much to say except that she was great! She was very personable and friendly and helped us make some decisions.
Also, if you have scene points you can either redeem or collect right there. All you have to do is give them your card and they will deduct your points right there. The max you can use is based on your subtotal.
I hope some of this was helpful!!!
We enjoyed our get together with good friends in the cozy atmosphere. Most of us love ribs and looked forward to our meal, my husband especially. He has never, in 48 years sent a meal back. He was very dis appointed when he discovered that not only were his ribs nor warm but cold! Another 2 said that theirs were just barely warm but they ate them anyway. We all liked the menu and the choices that we made but cold features were a real disappointment.
Our waitress was fabulous! As soon as we sat down she informed us that it was happy hour and that it was ending soon so we were able to get in two rounds at the happy hour price! She was efficient and funny.
Was my fathers birthday and she got him to wear the Moose hat. She made our experience and evening all that much better. Thank you!
Food was good, servers where excellent!
Brisket was fantastic.
We had a fantastic meal and the apps were great. The new menu is fabulous.
Our server Mark was fantastic. We have had Mark as our server a few times at this location and he is super friendly and always makes your visit a pleasant and entertaining experience. We will defiantly return!!
Celebrated our 47th anniversary and just wanted to go out to dinner, and not spend a fortune. Great food and reasonable prices. We all enjoyed our meal and evenig. Staff was top notch.
Meal was excellent. Prepared quickly & served hot. It was noisy expected being a Saturday night.
Overall excellent experience. The all tou can eat ribs were delicious. Taylor was the best waiter we have ever had. His timing was perfect.
Always good. Where my daughter wanted to go for her birthday dinner. She loves their ribs!
Service was not the greatest. May have been a new server, but hard to get her attention to get the bill.
It was really good! I would return again in the future
Jesse was a friendly and attentive server. Also was knowledgeable on the menu items.
We did not have to wait long for our food to come.
Fun place to go for a date night. Love their food and have never had a bad experience.
The steak was quite tough and dry..... ordered med well so it was a little overdone for that category, having ordered that numerous times previously. Very little ice cream on the chocolate chip cookie dessert. Food was tasty tho. Little noisy but we were near the bar. Probably will come back hoping for better steak.
I made reservations for Easter Sunday in whichever open table confirmed. When we arrived the Restaurant was closed for renovations.
So we didn't get our dinner. Am very disappointed in Open Table.
I found Montana in this location on open table and made a reservation.
Reservation did go through.
But there was no in app or any email notification that this location is closed for renovation.
When we got there, we were very disappointed about the business is closed.
I hope open table could do better in their update that user would not need to make unnecessary trip. That is very annoying bringing an overseas guests to a restaurant.
Was under construction booked a table with confirmation when we arrived they were closed for construction
Why would I be allowed to make a reservation to a restaurant that is closed for renovations?????
Seems a little silly. What a waste. Thankfully other establishments were open in the area to accommodate our dinner guests.
My favourite dish - the anajitos were delicious as always. The lighting was bad - I had to use my cell phone flashlight just to read the menu. Renovations are happening though as we speak so I'm looking forward to seeing if the lighting situation improves. Love the food though.
We all found it quite cold in the restaurant.
Taylor was our server and he was most excellent. He made our dining experience enjoyable from beginning to end. Food was delish.
Food was ok..rice bowel was amazing the steaks were cold and not done well. Ribs were dry..Overall ok. Server tylor was super nice, friendly
Great meal and wonderful service! Would recommend!
We had a great server, the only negative part of our dinner was that the temperature in the restaurant was really hot. It was very uncomfortable and even our server commented about it.
The restaurant was way to warm. The food was ok. Very average
Met expectations **
Food was terrible and cold, would not recommend to anyone
