Oh my the service was excellent and the food even better. I had one of the rice bowls with lemongrass and mint. So good. My husband had the Ruben which he thought was good but not the best he had ever had. We will be back. Three outside tables on a beautiful day and easy to stay gluten free.

We had a lovely dinner at big sky. The salads we ordered were fresh and unique. The service was good but we were there on a Sunday night so it wasn't crowded. All in all we would eat here again

Beyond expectations. Super nice place with great breakfast and great staff. The Greek Spinach, Feta, Mushroom & Tomato Omelette was amazing. If ever in the area I will definitely plan to stop in again!

We all enjoyed our meals but the Reuben (of which I am fond) was amazing--moist and flavorful and no fat. We had a server change part way through and were left hanging a while, but the management was very kind and took care of everything. My grandson is fussy about plain food and they told us how to accommodate his... More

Used to be OK but went for lunch with family. Mediocre food, indifferent and slow service and very slow kitchen. Why go there?

Four of us ate lunch here on a Saturday. It was an average place. Nothing spectacular. The other three people in our group had salads that they enjoyed. I couldn't seem to find anything enticing that they wouldn't hold the bell peppers out of. I was told it's all premixed up, can't make it without them. I ended up eating... More

It was one of the best breakfast we had. My husband had Traditional New Mexican Pozole. It is a thick soup full of flavor. He ordered it with pork. The poached was a pleasant addition.

Fresh and tasty. We frequent Big Sky regularly and have yet to have a bad meal. Lots of variety, it is not a burger joint but they do have them.
