Montana's BBQ & Bar - Alliston
We waited an hour for our meals. Had to go find server twice. Once to ask how much longer for meals and the second time to get the checks.
Steaks were tough
It was OK. But just OK. Service was slow and food was not exceptional. Steak was cooked to the right temperature but extremely tough. Loaded baked potatoes were loaded with potato but not much else.
Have always had consistently well done foods here. They can cook a steak correctly and there were a lot of staff helping to get food out while it was fresh. They made a slight error on one meal and it was corrected really fast. Service was friendly, fun and quick.
Service was excellent
We have been coming to Montana’s for every special occasions in our family such as birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s and Father’s Days. We love the food, the prices and of course the location. We would recommend Montana’s to everyone for any celebrations.
The food cane fast
The server was very polite and was great with our table
I ordered the chicken burrito bowl and the chicken was warm but the rice dish underneath was warm not hot.
Everyone else’s dishes were the right temperature
If you’re looking for a “neighbourhood bar” with all the noise and screens that entails then Montana's Alliston is the place for you. The food is fairly typical bar grub, and the servers are very friendly. Not fine dining, but a good place to meet and grab a bite.
Our first visit to a Montana's certainly didn't disappoint. Line ups at the door were quickly bypassed due to my having made a reservation ahead of time. Had a nice table and was quickly served by our waitress, Sarah, who was very friendly and welcoming. Food came quickly and was very tasty. Prompt service when asking for anything. Very, very, friendly staff. A couple of birthdays were celebrated which were fun to watch. Loved the whole experience and would definitely return and/or recommend this location to anyone in the area. By the looks of how busy it was, people in Alliston already know all this since it's a very popular place and we never saw an empty table the whole time we were there.
Quick to get seated which was nice.
Took a long time to get our food, and again a long time for desserts and coffee. The dinner we understood but by dessert time the tables were emptying.
Over all, a pleasant event. We had a table where the video screens were not fully in our face. In our opinion, if you can't get away from the TV's the restaurant is not worth visiting. Dinner for a lot of us means conversation and visiting, which can't be done with one or more in the party constantly distracted by the idiot box. It's programmed rudeness and disrespect!
The food was very tasty, although the steak was not very tender. Had the ribs and grilled chicken combo. Both were excellent and there was enough to take it home to enjoy a second time!
Our waiter was friendly and helpful, with one minor omission. We were not asked whether we would like coffee or tea with the dessert ordered.
Great service, fast and everything was right!!!!! Definitely one of my favourite places!
We went for Valentine’s Day and had a great dinner. Our waitress was great and food was good and arrived quickly considering the day and how busy they were. I would recommend eating here.
My wife and I went to Montana's for a Valentine's dinner. We were expecting it to be a little busier than normal and it was. So it wasn't bad based on that; however a couple of things that I would comment on would be that they didn't seem to have adequate staff on for the busier night as it was a long time between visits from our waitress. Our order was not exactly as ordered. I ordered a glass of water with no ice part way through dinner and received a glass of ice water when we were done eating. We were seated at a very small table and ended up being immediately beside people on both sides of us about 14 to 16 inches away. I expect normally these tables are pushed together but were split up in anticipation of a busier night with couples. Overall; the food was good. I'm not in a rush to go back.
Your restaurant was closed when I arrived for my confirmed reservation. I had family in from out of time on Christmas Eve. It was very disappointing.
Had a really good time. Henry was attentive but didnt bother us if we were deep in converstation. A good place to meet a friend you haven't seen in a while.
Order was incorrect several times and the wait for the correct meal was long.
Need to be able to pay faster....waited 20 minutes to pay the bill as waitress had issues with terminal disconnecting.
We were there for my daughter's birthday. 2 dinners came to the table 10 mins after everyone else's. My dish ordered was the skillet with shrimp and sausage. It was cold when it came to the table 10 mins after everyone else. Asked to have it warmed up. Came back like warm. Dish was supposed to have shrimp, sausage, rice, corn and black beans mixed in cajun sauce. Had tonnes of green peppers, 1 shrimp, some sausage no beans or corn. Sauce was a thick tomato sauce that was dumped on top not mixed in. It was Terrible. I would never recommend or order again.
Good food, but be prepared to wait a long time for it.
Our waitress was great at keeping one drink refilled, but would leave the drink before you knew what was happening and gone before you could asked her anything or even say thank you.
The service rating is reflective of the long time it took for the food, not just the waitress.
Made a reservation on OpenTable, but when we got there we had to wait over 20 minutes for a table. Kinda defeats the purpose of making a reservation. Wife couldn't climb the tall chairs so the walk-ins behind us sat down before us. When we did get seated, had to wait another 20 minutes before our drinks came. Waitress was struggling to keep up, but the food was good so we were on the fence. The owner, Kareem, did apologize personally, but needs to work on this a bit. He tossed in a few appetizers to patch things up. A clean sports bar atmosphere - but not too loud. Probably go again with crossed fingers.
Terrible. Processed food. Pleasant but clueless and slow waitstaff has no idea what a martini is. Fatty ribs. Frozen fries. Worst cornbread ever, state to boot.
Great fajitas an order for one feeds 2. Great anjolitos. Thanks
Great food good service
Came here with 6 friends before movie. Our order took 50 mins to get to our table. Longer then i expected. I ordered a Bison burger and fries. It was a little over cooked and under spiced. We each paid for ourselves and the waiter got every bill wrong except one. Some had drinks but did not order any and others had add on that the did not order. I will still go to this restaurant .

Service was exceptional. Food was good. I will go back to try other menu items.
Even though we had reservations, there was no table waiting for us. The wait staff insisted we order quickly and then it was 30 minutes before we received our food. The food was fine. Asked for water, that took a long time too. Finally we just got the bill.
There were 4 of us. 3 had steak medallions and the steak was cooked and seasoned perfectly. The 4th person had mac and cheese and it neither looked nor tasted appetizing. She couldn't even taste the cheese -it was like eating plain boiled macaroni. She sent the meal back and ordered a burger which took a while to come and when it did, the fries were cold.
I don't think this friend will join us again at Montana's, but the other 3 of us would come back for the steak and maybe the ribs.
The hostess was fast and pleasant. We were asked if we preferred a booth, and of course we do! The waitress was outgoing and kind. Served us well, didn’t come check on us too little or too much, She even and asked about our day... and our evening plans after our bill was received.
Food was great, atmosphere was chill. Great experience and great date with my fiancé!
Made a reservation so that we could get in before the show
Booked a table for 2
They placed us: right beside the kitchen entrance,
very noisy kitchen area, (noisy in that it was difficult to hear waitress)
high traffic area - kitchen staff moving fast in and out of kitchen
Very fast service - felt rushed - appetizer arrived - took the 1st bit, then dinner arrived - table was small in that everything couldn't fit on the table, didn't get a chance to finish hot appetizer - ate it cold after the main course
Overall we had a great time and enjoyed the food. The service was good...eventually. It took 15 minutes for a server to initially come to our table, and even then it was because I said something to the man cleaning a table near ours. It was not busy. But he took our drink and food orders right then and there, and was much more attentive.
bad service....had to ask for cutlery, wrong meal came 3 times, waited forever for beverage
Food was ok, service wasn’t at the same par as other Montana’s we have visited.
Would not recommend ... been here a few times and the food is always much less than desirable.
First time here, brought 2 daughters for Valentines, it was so hectic that waitress was too busy to attend to our needs and my steak was way overcooked, but too busy to say anything.
I was not impressed with the reception at the front desk, we had a reservation so when we entered many people were standing off to the side so I approached the desk to inform them of our arrival and was told” I’m dealing with these people first” not courteous at all. When we arrived at our table the waitress was very efficient, friendly and experienced. The meal for the price, I would rate it 4/5. Overall good experience, I do prefer a quieter restaurant, I understand that is the nature of this type of restaurant, I just like to hear the person I’m with.
We wouldn’t have gotten in if we hadn’t booked with this app! Thank you! Busy and delicious!
Great experience, and for a new restaurant in the area, very little glitches. Well organized and trained. It's clear demand is here for this restaurant.
Reservation made on line. Arrived early. Seated right away (We requested seating for a wheel chair). They forgot to give us menu so we had to ask. Food was good but a little expensive.
We were seated right away and server was prompt. I enjoyed my chicken tocos and salad. Thx
Great new spot in town. Only real critisism - food was delivered lukewarm! Pleasant staff. Ribs were onderful.
