Very busy restaurant, and for good reason. The food is great, consistent and the service is fast. Great mid-range restaurant for families.

Not much went well Our server didn't know we were seated in her section, so we didn't see her for 10 mins, despite the place not being busy I ordered ribs, and they were ok, but the mashed potatoes were cool, as were the beans The cornbread, an old family favorite of my childhood, was very disappointing; room temperature, and...

Always a wait on a Saturday, but they took our name and phone number and let us know by text. Our wait time was only half of what they said and we were seated. The atmosphere was good and the kids enjoyed themselves. Food was good and the service was too. It's not the best, but it was good.

I was surprised reading through some of the reviews that this is a chain restaurant - wish we had one back home! We were staying across the street and decided to grab something close so drove over to Montana's. The parking lot was full and it was quite busy - but they were still able to immediately seat us.

As a chain restaurant, this was one of my favourites in St. John's. The service was always good and it was quick. The food is average but I did not expect anything more from a chain restaurant. Great place if you want ribs, their BBQ sauces are delicious.

We were staying over night in St John. Picked this restaurant more or less random. The building is very unique; someone has spent a lot of money on it. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. The food is not great. We each ordered the rib - wing combo with a Caesar salad. We did not eat the salad -... More
