Lunch at Montana Mike’s
My Dad had some business that brought him to our fair city today. And whenever he’s in town, we like to have lunch or dinner together. So we met today for lunch at Montana Mike’s on hwy 248. We’ve eaten there many times, and I’ve eaten there many times without him. It’s one of my favorite places to eat in Branson.
That said, I’m on the Atkins Diet, all low carb foods. I’ve really not been out to eat since I started the diet a few weeks ago. (I did go out one other time, and had a burger without the bun. It wasn’t very fulfilling.) I sat down with my menu, knowing that my typical orders, their awesome Hickory Burger or the Chicken Fried Steak, were not on my diet. So I needed to try something new. I settled on the Steak and Shrimp combo, with Grilled rather than Fried Shrimp. It comes with a 9 oz sirloin steak and 10 skewered shrimp, with a very tasty buttery-cajun seasoning. Now, I love a good steak. So I wasn’t surprised when it was very good. But the Shrimp was fantastic. I don’t usually care much for seafood; but this Shrimp was great. They had several choices for people like me, who are on a low carb diet, as well as the richer foods that I’ve enjoyed so much in the past.
One thing they do at Montana Mike’s, is to have you cut your steak when it arrives, just to be sure it is cooked to your liking. I appreciated that. If there’s a problem, they can take care of it right away. Good customer service. Arlene was our server, and she did a great job, as usual, taking care of us, especially keeping our iced tea glasses filled. I appreciated that, too.
If you’ve never been there, the décor is pretty consistent with the restaurant’s name: lots of animal pelts, fishing gear, and rugged looking, outdoorsman memorabilia. It’s got lots of seating, so I’ve never had to wait very long for a table. There are 2 Montana Mike’s in Branson: the one we dined at today, and one on hwy 76, which is closed now for re-model. If you like good food, good portions, and good service; then stop in at Montana Mike’s.
