I love Olive B's and would eat here all the time if I could. The service is amazing, as well as the food & wine. I've never had anything less than an outstanding meal that is always worth the splurge. Can't wait to go back! Please ignore silly recent reviews about pizza (clearly they accidentally reviewed the wrong restaurant!) and... More

Just had a fantastic dinner at Olive B's. My wife and I each had the halibut. It was the best fish that we've had since leaving the coast. The mudpie and huckleberry pie were also excellent. Congrats to Chef Bibbins and his wonderful wait staff. It was truly a great experience!

I had mixed feelings about my meal at Olive B's. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful and I will say the French onion soup was fantastic! The chef also gave us a complimentary appetizer which was appreciated. I however found the bison ribs which were a special that day very bland and I was a little disappointed. Overall though...

Not really worth going to. Keep it simple here in Big Sky if you are visiting. Not many choices but the ones that claim to be "Fine Dining" would not make it a city with competition. Decent atmosphere for a strip mall looking location. But all in all mediocre food at high prices.

This place is so cute and the service was so good that it's a shame the food was so average. The sauce on the pheasant was odd tasting and the deep fried sea scallops were so fishy that they were almost inedible. To be fair, one person had the lamb chops and said they were good.

I wasn't sure whether this place would be affordable or "my style", but I went inside and the friendly hostess let me check out the menu and then I decided I should stay. GREAT food here, friendly service, and an unbelievably beautiful patio gave me an experience to remember. I'd just finished a horseback ride which offered me breathtaking views... More

So glad we visited Olive B's during the one day we were in Big Sky. Stopped in during a rain storm for lunch. The tomato soup was perfect for the rainy, cold day. The grilled cheese was AMAZING too. Super friendly service as well. So many things on the menu looked good. If I ever return to Big Sky, I... More

Was on vacation with local friends. They recommended to go to this establishment. All I can say is WOW! Everything was superb! I had a Buffalo Wellington. Was tender and tasty. Wine selections are great and service was wonderful. It does not get better then this! I highly recommend this when traveling to Yellow stone or Big Sky!
