Loud, friendly working bar with great prices

Great prices for food and drink anywhere much less a ski town at high season. There is both a bar and tables for eating food. It was a busy midweek evening and we took the last tables. Within a half hour, the bar was standing room only and several people deep. It seems to be a favorite with... read more

Great friendly service. Bartender checked on me several times to see how I was doing. Pulled pork was totally awesome and you have your choice of several sauces. Brisket was good too but I liked the pork better. Excellent sweet potato fries. Loved the local beers too. This is definitely a bar though. Don't go in expecting a fancy atmosphere.... More

This is by far the best food in town. Smoked meats are great and the owner Anderson makes you feel at home!! Would recommend for anyone. Bar is nice atmosphere in the evenings. Look for the meat smoker outside!

My Buffalo burger was great. My wife loved her brisket slider as well as the bbq sauces. Kids also loved the chicken tenders. The staff was polite and the service was great. Great place!

This place is a bar so don't go there for the atmosphere. My boys and I all had the brisket which was good. My daughter had the pulled pork which she said was good. However, she spent the next day throwing up. I can't say for sure it was the pork, but it only lasted an afternoon and then she... More

I am glad that the food all tasted good. You are right about it being a bar. I remember when y'all came in, sat at table 4, and I remember you being happy with the food and service. I have to say that I find it really hard that your daughter got food poisoning from the pulled pork. We go... More

After a long day skiing and touring our group of four was not in the mood for a two hour wait at the slope-side restaurants so we ventured down the mountain to try to get into someplace quickly. We found the Broken Spoke and were able to be seated immediately. Our waitress was extremely nice but seemed slightly confused that... More

I've been visiting Big Sky for ten years. This was my first visit to this restaurant. It's opened less than two years ago. It's a bar atmosphere. staff was very attentive and friendly. The pulled pork and beef brisket was fantastic; tender and very flavorful. Homemade sauces were excellent. Great homemade French fries. Everyday happy hour 4-7. It's a bargain... More
