We went to the mermaids brunch with our kids and both mermaids and food were awesome. We really enjoyed it and the kids LOVED the mermaids who swim around the whole time and interact with the guests

Saw an ad for this place at our hotel, and just had to check it out. We had a blast. It's a tiny little lounge, it has delicious food, and there are MERMAIDS!!!

Flying out of Great Falls, we had a couple hours to kill before our flight. After scoping out TAdvisor we decided to give it a try. Unfortunately we must have come at a slow time as the bar was quiet. No mermaids were to be...More

The Sip and Dip Lounge is a famous Great Falls landmark. While a bit tired, it still is worth seeing. We were there for happy hour and drinks were a real bargain. Not sure I would stay to eat.

Fun experience with friendly staff and great drinks. We were too early for the legendery piano show, but still enjoyed chips and margaritas with the mermaid show.

Not a big fan of the lounge scene., usually too noisy, and too expensive. If you’re hankering for a beer..go for it!..not for me!

Went for a drink and sightseeing on the coldest night before Christmas. The place was packed and warm. Cute mermaids kept the bar packed and Pat the pianist kept things rockin. Eclectic and fun.

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!
