Good but not the best on the mountain for a family meal

We came here for our first night in Big Sky. It's not a fancy or big place...essentially every table is in the bar. So, if that it what you are looking for, then it would be 5 stars I suppose. I mean, after all, it is called "saloon". They only had one server for the whole place, and while... read more

I brought 30 people and the elevator broke. The jerk working the door blamed me for it breaking. He was a terrible person and got in my face about it. I'm not in charge of the elevator and can't control how many people get on it. I will not bring anyone there again. Michelle at the bar was fantastic.

Where do I start? Yes. You broke the elevator. When you shove 14 people into the small elevator it will break. The door guy did exactly right by us and you got into his face several times about it. You will be hearing from the police about paying for the door. I'm glad you won't be back because you are... More

In past visits to big sky I have felt the pinch of lift ticket costs such that my mates and I ate on the cheap just to get by via snacks picked up at the grocer of sorts in the mall, assuming all the restaurants here to be exorbitantly expensive. Scissorbill's proved me inaccurate, delightfully! Yes, a bar burger will... More

Great vibe, customers, and staff. Awesome bartender! And good bar grub. This may be a dive bar, but it's the best bar in the village. All of the other bars have a pretty generic feel. This place has character.

More of a bar than a place to eat and it can either be dead or packed with drunkenness. Good beer selection.

Thanks for the review. I appreciate your sentiment and we are a good time place for locals. I don't know what else to do to convince you that our food, though pub fare, is outstanding in its own right. We have worked hard over the past years to take average pub items to the top level. Our homespun items are... More

The desk clerk at our hotel recommended this place to eat when we arrived in the evening. We had the jerk chicken with salad and fries. We really enjoyed our meal and our waitress was very friendly and eager to assist us. We came back the next day for a burger and I would have to say it was one... More

Thanks so much for your kind words. This is the review that we are working to attain and we are so pleased that you stopped in. Yes our menu selections are significantly scaled back in the summer due to the lower visitor numbers in Big Sky and conscious thought to reduce waste. We do enjoy providing finer entree items and...

Thanks for the wonderful review. We take great pride in serving "typical" pub fare at an outstanding level. And I think the burgers speak for themselves. The atmosphere, we strive to provide, must complimant the fine fare we fix fondly for our fanatics. Thanks again! More

Were wandering around looking for a place to eat and came across the scissorbills saloon. Seems like a local hangout. Loud music sometimes live. Ping pong table. The best meatloaf that I have ever had. The pot Pie is very special well. Worth the time.
