Came here for lunch seeking somewhere to get something other than pizza or burgers. Disappointed to have so few selections, what we had was ok, nothing special. I enjoyed the spinach salad but my French onion soup was too salty. Son's Cobb salad was pale and unappetizing, they forgot to put the turkey on it, no tomatoes, just ice berg... More

I would recommend this restaurant. It had a nice atmosphere and a beautiful location. Service was a little slow, so it’s not a place to eat if you’re in a hurry. I was there for lunch and had the BLT with sweet potato fries. The BLT had thick bacon and plenty of it, and the sweet potato fries were very... More

We have been coming to Big Sky for 12 years in the spring and fall. We shop at Willows next door and always dropped in at Luna's, but learned it had closed and Olive B's came in. OMG! Chef Warren is fabulous and even visits with patrons. Excellent wine pairings and excellent service is also provided. The prices are reasonable... More

I will make it short - I have eaten at most of the restaurants in Big Sky over many years - this is just the best food on the mountain or in the valley. Do you like duck - no, not the over-cooked quackers that most restaurants start at about 4PM? This one is crisp and juicy. All of the... More

Olive B's is a favorite for my family in Big Sky. I have honestly not ever had anything that was not great. But tonight, I ordered the Halibut Special and it rates off the charts. The service remains outstanding. If you are in the area, you must try Olive B's. If you frequent Olive B's, you must try the halibut!... More

By far the best gourmet food experience in Big Sky. If you skip them you are missing out. We are locals and every year for both our birthdays we get a piece of the pumpkin cheese cake - it's our new tradition. We have eaten there numerous times, trying something different every time, and have never been disappointed.

This restaurant rivals all the best in New York City without the attitude. Service was excellent. Deserts homemade and to die for. Our entrees were good portion sizes and perfectly prepared.

We experienced a delightful meal here. The food was prepared expertly and was inspired. Like most "cafe/bistros" these days, the outdoor seating was beside a parking lot, but was quiet and the view was lovely. Each of our selections were well prepared and our service was excellent; unpretentious, yet professional. Our group enjoyed this restaurant so much, that the "men... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch and to watch the US - Belgium soccer final. This was a cute bistro, with a great menu, great atmosphere and terrific servers. Two people in our group had the Bison Burgers which were delicious, and I had the Gyro Burger (not at all a traditional Gyro, but very tasty. As appetizers, one... More

Definitely a "can't miss" in the Big Sky area. We had dinner and had a wonderful experience. Olive B's possess's the qualities of what I would consider a true gourmet establishment, with a mountain - laid - back chic thrown into the mix. First and foremost, they source their ingredients with care, and attention to local producers and sustainability. I... More
