Keep an open mind, as you rarely can repeat whatever concoction charmed and enticed you on your prior visit. They are ever stretching their culinary muscles, and you reap the benefits. Luscious, inventive, tasty creations that never disappoint.

This is for anyone who loves healthy eating. We had the salads and they were outstanding. They serve little corn muffins to start. We had the chicken Caesar and chicken caprese salads – awesome - baby spinach and lettuce hearts with fresh ingredients. Waitress Kristiana was excellent. Atmosphere and décor relaxing. Definitely would go back.

Big Sky offers the very best food. Fresh local produce, great attention to flavor. The lobster mac & cheese always a favorite. Vegan, vegetarian or meat lovers will all find fabulous dishes. Breakfast is amazingly good be neys (sp), home made rolls, oatmeal and eggs. You will not be disappointed with any meal any time of day.

One companion had the seasonal local vegetable plate, which was just ok. Another had the eggplant and it was delicious! Is certainly go back. The menu has a large variety to choose... More

Great menu selection! Haven't been there for breakfast- but many times for lunch and dinner! Fabulous local greens, and lunch selection. Where we take our out of town guests.

You won't be disappointed, especially if you like a good selection of veggie friendly options. The food was fresh and delicious. I am still thinking about the tomatoes a few weeks after we had them (Greek Watermelon and Feta Salad). The hummus and the whole Meze Platter was really tasty also.

Great for breakfast, a leisurely lunch or a late night dinner. Nice selection of foods and specials, usually including a locally caught fish dinner or their delicious turkey chili and cornbread, which is one of my perennial favorites. Nice for a date, too- the well-stocked bar and affable bartenders make this a great place for people watching.

Big Sky Cafe is always a winner for their fantastic breakfast menu, so we mixed it up a bit and stopped for lunch. And wow--the lunch even tops the delicious breakfast. The organic chicken and goat cheese salad was spectacular. Fresh local greens, two thick slices of rich creamy goat cheese on perfectly toasted crostinis, a perfectly tender grilled chicken... More
