Greasy bistro

Great drinks and innovative menu. My entree was a ceasar salad with flat iron steak. My partner had lamb shank. Both were excellent. Service was good. Very small but a great place to eat

Great thing about Big Sky is showing up in ski clothing in a first class restaurant is completely acceptable! Great atmosphere and knowledgeable staff! Went with friends and had an amazing meal! Calamari appetizer and fondue great start. Soba noodles with pork meatballs were awesome!

We tried BWOM after having it recommended by locals. The waitstaff and food were top notch. I can't say enough about this place. The atmosphere is not as cozy as it could be, but that is just a nitpick. Try the rainbow trout! You won't regret it.

Large group with kids and all enjoyed the experience. A wide variety of specialty drinks and a diverse menu. Tuna steak was very good. Sampled all the deserts and none disappointed.

The meal was pretty average. The server neglected to tell us the specials (we overheard another server telling his table after we had ordered), which was disappointing. I had the hangar steak and frites (the steak was overcooked so a bit tough). My husband had the lamb burger, also overcooked. If you're going to serve a lot of basic dishes,... More

Tried this place for the first time and the food was excellent. For once I got a plate of food in the US that wasn't so large it over faced me. Had a minced lamb dish, two people had steaks & another a pork dish. They all said how good their food was. We will be going back before we... More

We called in by chance one evening and had the most lovely dinner. Food was excellent and staff knowledgable about the food and wines. A real find and one I have no hesitation in recommending.

We have our traditions: on ski vacations, I pick the mountain, and Leslie makes dinner reservations. Last night, she turned the world upside down and made the rest of us choose. After the panic subsided, and an agonized search process, we simply decided to go back to BYWOM by unanimous vote (democratic process can get ugly). We had so enjoyed... More

Many locals recommended this restaurant but I wasn't so impressed by what we ordered. The menu seemed creative and ambitious but I don't think any of the plates we had were that successful nor did they pair well with each other. The ginger meatballs and poutine were both just ok and had strangely conceived flavors that did not pay any... More
