We ate at Montanas at noon on a Thursday. The restaurant was fairly full on the one side, bar not that busy. We asked for a booth and were seated as soon as one was cleared, just a short wait. I ordered the lunch trio, beef sandwich, pot roast soup and caesar salad. They were excellent and inexpensive. Beef was... More

After waiting for an hour with our one year old twins when we were told the wait was 30 minutes, we had a terrible meal. I ordered the Chicken Parm and the Chicken was like a tiny frozen breaded chicken breast beside dry pasta that tasted fishy. The garlic bread was dry and burnt as well. Normally my husband and...

Well, we are long time patrons of Montana's in Nova Scotia and it was always great, but this may have been our last visit here. We visited later in the evening when most restaurants were closed and decided to get a few appetizers for takeout as we had the doggies in the car with us. The restaurant wasn't busy, maybe... More

We are from out of town, and hoped that the quality of our local Montana's would be the same as their Winnipeg location. This was not so. The pulled pork sandwich I ordered was very dry with a small amount of sauce, had little cheese, and was bland. The fry tray that comes with the order was not filled and... More

As I have eaten at Montanas many times I wasn't surprised with how it went. The service wasn't bad, and it was quick so a bonus there. However the coffee was incredibly bland and didn't stay hot long. The fountain drinks tasted off and when my food came I wasn't too happy either. My chicken was nice but the shrimp... More

With the title being said, if you go on a night when they actually have decent kitchen staff in the back you won't be disappointed. My favourite as of late has been the Beef ribs which seems to always be done to perfection and I totally recommend it. Other then that the place is always freakishly packed during rush hours...

The food was not good at all, the service was awful. People who ordered the same meals all looked and tasted different. I would not go back. I have been there many times and each time it is getting worse.

Went here for our son's birthday. Our first time, we really liked the decor and atmosphere, our server was pleasant and very unobtrusive but attentive. Son had the beer boot and I tried the smoky peach lemonade which was different, may be an acquired taste, next time I'll have beer. We all enjoyed our food - son had the poutine... More
