I had read about this place prior to our visit in Montana. So when we were in the area, we stopped. So glad we did. Although we were there to early for the mermaids and Piano Pat, we still enjoyed the visit. We met some...More

The opposite of the current trend in "hipster" bars - thankfully! Clearly a fantastic concept that stands the test of time, appropriately dated theme, great drinks and #1 nachos! The place seemed about 1/4 tourists and 3/4 regulars which is great - explains why the...More

Came here on a Sunday so not much was happening, which is to to be expected. The burgers, beers and service were great!

We had a great time here. We ended up sitting outside in the tiki bar because inside was pretty crowded. Our bartender Carl was awesome and we ended up staying way longer then we intended. We had fun and will definitely go back next time...More

We were too early for the mermaids, but we had a drink and some appetizers. Good tasting, and we can say that we've been there.

We came here because we heard about the live mermaids and we are from out of town. Yup.... there was a mermaid.... it wasn't a bad visit but it want anything to write home about. I've seen it and probably won't be back.

First of all we wanted a late lunch after hiking all day so we were there around 3pm. We were told the mermaids didn't star until 6pm and on Monday's there is only one. As luck would have it, the mermaid called in sick! So...More

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

Description
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!
