Montana's BBQ & Bar - St. Catharines
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
We had Taylor for our waiter and he fantastic. He was pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable.
The staff at this location are always great but Taylor was over and above!! We had a great experience and definitely would return. Oh yeah our food was great as well.
Food was good. Kids loved their kids meals
We were very pleased with our experience food wise and service excellent...will return
Long wait for food. Bums are dried out for sandwiches. Ribs n pulled pork dried out. Not worth our money very disappointed.
Great meal, great service. Love mini desserts. I would recommend to family and friends.
My family went to celebrate a birthday. There was one waiter in the place. He forgot to order our appetizers. When our dinner came, my steak was blue! The waffles on the burgers we're burnt. The chicken was so hard and overcooked. We sat forever waiting for someone to come back so we could tell him. The table behind us was furious and said they could have walked out without paying, and no one would have been the wiser. Two hour meal that was awful. A huge party was there as well, who seemed to get all the attention. Very understaffed. Very dissatisfied. I will never go back. Happy birthday! A Terrible, long disaster!
Had a great time at Montana's! Our server was Tayler and he was entertaining and very attentive to our table. He made some great recommendations and we all tried something new to eat or drink...thanks to him. The food was fantastic! We always make an online reservation prior to dining here and it is worth it. Our table was ready for us and we could just relax and have a great time. Thanks Tayler and the team at Montana's for a great night out!
Great time with great friends. The food was superb and the server was excellent.
Good food, good time!
I had lunch at this restaurant and quite enjoyed, so , thought I would try dinner. It was very busy and consequently very noisy. The western motif was evident throughout and did give the place the ambience of a 'western' hotel. My partner and I both ordered steak. She ordered 7 oz. and I ordered the 10 oz. We ordered our steak medium rare. When the steak arrived there did not seem to be any appreciable different in size. The steak was rare - cold inside. I mentioned it to our waiter who was prepared to take it back. I did not want the hassle of this procedure so ate the steak as it was served.
Our server Matt was great. Food was excellent quality.
