We came here with a party of 30 on a Saturday. We didn't have a reservation but they were able to accommodate us even though it seemed like they were really busy. Thank goodness for that, we were so tired after our volleyball tournament and some delicious protein and wonderful service was just what we needed! I got the Rib... More

I visited Montana's on Upper James in Hamilton, Ontario for a quick bite to eat and wee drink...lol. I was greeted promptly at the front door and seated quickly. It was a Friday around 6pm and the place was busy but not super packed. My friend and I order an appy (spin dip) which was delish and a couple glasses... More

I was originally going to go to the mandarin on valentine's day but their wait was to long and their service seemed unusually slow so we went over to montanas. They met our expectantions and more even though they also seemed busy. We will definitely recommend and return.

We wound up here because our first choice was booked. It was just an average experience in every way. Almost nothing was memorable, bad or good.

We were at Montana's for a Sunday lunch with our family. We got there at 11:30 AM so the place was pretty empty. Service was OK to start but quickly started going downhill. Our server tried to be friendly but it came off as a little creepy, too much info. After we got our drinks he came back 3 times... More
