Got there around 6 to see the mermaids and grab a beer. Probably should have gone a little bit later as there was only 1 mermaid and Pat the piano player didn't start until 9, but I was exhausted from a long day of traveling....More

The Sip n' Dip is truly a GEM. The old school tiki bar makes you feel like you have been transported to another time and place~ and the fishbowl drink definitely help you get there faster. :) The mermaids do a GREAT job swimming, twirling,...More

Everyone comes here to see the mermaids, but after about 6 seconds they're no longer interesting. It's a small bar but it also has an outdoor area which is more comfortable than the bar. Gets busy at times too.

I'm curious what we could do in your opinion to make the mermaids "more interesting." We like to have feedback on ways to improve.

Enjoy the quaint environment. Tiki bar with Piano Pat. Mermaid view into the swimming pool with actual "mermaids" for your enjoyment. Lots of microbrew options as well as full bar selection.

Anyone is welcome to stop in before 9pm. The merpeople are usually in the tank by 6pm. However, it is an adult lounge so please keep that in mind. We cannot control the customer conversations, actions, etc. We are... More

The Sip 'n Dip is the home of the Montana Mermaids and Piano Pat. A close drive to Glacier National Park, the Sip 'n Dip Lounge is part of the O'Haire Motor Inn. We're unique and nothing like you've ever experienced before. Stop in for a bite to eat, watch the mermaids, listen to Pat, stay in one of our comfy rooms. We don't care what you do while you're here, just that you're here. There's something in the water at the Sip 'n Dip!
