Anna H. said: "Loved the decoration and the atmosphere, but the food didn't taste as great as it looked. I was fine with my dishes, but my friends not so much. The burger was apparently not too tasty.
We went for a friend's birthday party. When we were finishing up our food, the waiter came out with a cupcake for the birthday girl. No one had asked for it so we were all like "cool! that's so nice so nice of them!" That is until we went up to pay for the party, and they actually charged us for the cupcake ($5 I think..). I mean, it wasn't a big deal, but the fact that they charged us for something we didn't even ask for was kind of ridiculous.
The lights in the garden are beautiful at night!"
Jenny V. said: "The fact that it's connected to an assisted living facility was a little strange at first, but once you're in the restaurant the atmosphere is cozy. They broke up our 15-person group into two tables next to each other, which wasn't ideal but not terrible.
The menu focuses on local and organic ingredients, with several gluten-free dishes and a handful of seasonal items. I choose a few small plates for my entrée. The house-cured salmon on zucchini cakes with goat cheese basil mousse was delicious; however, the pan-seared sea scallops with roasted tomatoes, bacon and artichoke broth didn't thrill me, I found it bland.
The rosemary and red wine braised pot roast - one of their most popular staples, our server explained - tasted "exactly like pot roast should taste" according to the diner in our party that ordered it.
Our table sampled the kale chips (done well, not too greasy), and the roasted Brussels sprouts (a little hard for my liking but still tasty).
My favorite part of the meal hands down was the house-made cinnamon ice cream. Best dessert I've had in a long time. Get the ice cream!
Our server was attentive without being overbearing and handled our large party masterfully. Drinks didn't go dry and the pacing of the meal was perfect. She was clearly a professional and I was impressed with the service from start to finish."

Rick said: "I think this was about the 3rd time I've eaten at Big Sky with my GF in the last 7-8 years and it's always been a good experience. We stopped in for an early dinner at about 6:00 on a Friday night and had no trouble getting a table. There's nice, outdoor patio seating; a cozy-contemporary bar with seating, and a couple of dining rooms, all with very nice decor and lots of earthy colors and wood and would even be suitable for a romantic evening out. Our server, Jessica, did an excellent job. She explained that the main dishes changed on a daily basis relative to available ingredients from their supply partners. She was very helpful in choosing right dish for our moods and a good wine to go with. My GF went for the big dry rubbed pork chop with sweet potatoes and she shared a bite with me--it was very tasty. She's a farm girl and knows a good pork chop when she tastes one. I had the house salad and the pot roast which was tender, and full of delicious flavor. The red wine and seasoning in the sauce really worked well with the beef. It was a very enjoyable dinner."
