Great food and service!

This place had the best (and cheapest) food we had in Big Sky. Bar atmosphere with great margaritas, $8 burger and hand cut fries. I left my purse there and the owner was kind enough to meet me there before opening so we could start our 15 hr drive home. Thanks so much for your extra customer... read more

Bummer. Website not updated for over 2 years. Bar only. We looked it up and were misled by website that they served BBQ. Told they trashed that 4 months ago.

Even though the place was almost empty, we were hardly given any time to check the menu before ordering. The service was rather poor but the food was delivered really quickly. My bison burger was good and fries, which I usually don't eat were great. My husband's lunch special was good too.

I recently visited the BigSky area on a girls trip. We intended to go to a free outdoor concert, but rain spoiled our plans so we opted to check out the local bar scene. Being in Montana, it was not the atmosphere we expected. The crowd was relatively young, mainly in their 20s, and appeared to be hippies as opposed... More

The food here was excellent! My husband and I had the brisket. Don't be surprised though, it is a bar. We did not realize this, but the service was good and the food delicious.

The staff at this restaurant did an amazing job of accommodating our large group. The appetizers were very tasty as well as the main course. We had a great time. They even took a group picture of all of us. This was a night to remember!

I spoke with the owner a month before our ski club party that included 40 people. I was the trip captain for 40 people, and I decided after talking with the owner that this restaurant would be a great place for our club party. Each person had the sliders plate which consisted of BBQ beef brisket, BBQ pulled pork, and... More

Our ski club had a party at the bar and grill. The appetizers (combo platter of chicken wings, sweat potato fries, fried cheese, onion rings, and fried mac n cheese) and BBQ sliders (pork and beef) were all hot and deliclous. The owner did everything he could to make our party the best. We brought in desserts from a nearby... More

Servers are friendly. Bbq is excellent. You can't beat the value. We had a large group so the bar atmosphere worked well.

The team at the Broken Spoke did a terrific job of hosting our ski club. They handled our large group with aplomb and provided tasty appetizers and great pulled pork and brisket. Being from St. Louis, we are accustomed to excellent BBQ and I was pleased to find that the meats at the Broken Spoke were moist and smoky. The... More
