I previously wrote a bad review of this restaurant. We decided to give it a second chance and were so glad we did. The service was so much better than our visit. We were there on a busy night at the peak ofvski season last visit and felt like the locals were the only people that mattered. This visit mid_September... More

Definitely a good go-to restaurant in the area. Everyone was very friendly. They have a wonderfully diverse menu and a good beverage selection. My boyfriend loved the bison steak (it was huge, I tried it, it was awesome) and I had the duck and loved it as well. Prices are worth the quality of food. Would recommend to a friend!

The only reason I KNOW how much protein is I've been measuring... More

This was the numero uno restaurant in Big Sky, and it has slipped since it first opened, but it remains the second or third best restaurant in the area. The food is well prepared and the menu covers many tastes, the wine list is more than adequate and the prices are reasonable. Buffalo steaks, trout, and a good variety of... More

This is my third time at ByWOM and will likely be my last. First time, OK service was overcome by great food. The last two times the service has gotten worse. The food is still good but when so many other restaurants in Big Sky seem so appreciative of your business I don't know why I would go back. A... More

Had the local trout and loved it. Place was a little noisy but was there with 7 other people so it didn't matter to me. Everyone else was happy with their dinners.

Had dinner here on our first night in Big Sky, and were very pleased. The room is very comfortable, and actually has real art (no pictures of bison or bears) on the walls. Menu is interesting, and service is good. Had an excellent fresh trout with a quinoa side dish that was absolutely off the charts. Duck is also quite... More

BYOM is a moderately priced restaurant which gives you good value. Excellent calamari starter. Beef is always good. Nightly wine specials are fun to try. The only problem is that noise can become a problem as the tables fill. We go early.

We ate here last year when we were out and loved it so much that we went back another night. This year we were excited to go back and were not disappointed. My portobello plate was awesome and my husband really liked his ribeye.

We had dinner there last night. Delicious variety, escargot in mushroom caps, salad, great sushi, an amazing lamb entrée, my total favorite. Started out with a basil martini, delicious, and a great bottle of Cote de Rhone and then a fabulous molten chocolate cake with homemade ice cream. Great service thanks to Blair Elliot. It was busy at the bar... More
