Tired hungry skiers

We weren't dissatisfied. Got to create our own pizza and it was delicious! Pasta and meatballs were good too! They had a pool table and nice brews to chose from. Recommended.

The freshness and attention to detail here was amazing. We just loved the unpretentious atmosphere and wonderful food. Service was attentive and prompt, you feel as if you are "in the know" eating here :) ... and you are. It was one of our favorite restaurants in Big Sky, we visited twice!

Small but very cozy. Staff was very attentive. Healthy choices on the menu. Trout with lemon quinoa was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant.

Compared to some of the other choices in the Big Sky area, BWOM does offer some excellent menu selections - especially their lamb. The wait staff have always been friendly and prompt. A nice beverage selection. ...but - the location and atmosphere seem lacking.

The meal was delicious. I had a great salad, can't remember the name, and a steak done to perfection! The only downside was that the restaurant is small and was very noisy and crowded. It was hard to converse with the people at my table.

My dad found this restaurant on Open Table. It is worth the drive from West Yellowstone - gorgeous scenery - for this more creative restaurant. It is somewhat tucked away in a small, strip office plaza in a residential area, but don't let that discourage you. I had the Asian noodles with ginger pork meatballs - oh so yummy! The... More

Our company held a week long retreat in Big Sky last week and BWOM catered 4 of our meals, 2 lunches and 2 dinners. We did sandwiches for lunch and pulled pork for one dinner and Italian for the other. All 4 were excellent, especially the desserts. Thanks BWOM. We'll be in touch for next year's retreat.

This was my second visit to By Word of Mouth, with the first being in February. Had a good steak the first time around (and I am picky about getting a steak out, because a majority of restaurants do not cook steak well). This time around I had a late lunch, so I was not looking for a heavy dinner,... More

We decided on By Word of Mouth for dinner since it was close to where we are staying. The food was absolutely delicious. I had sushi, (spicy tuna roll), others got the pork shank, and the rainbow trout. Everyone loved ALL of their meals! Service was great as well. It is a real calm and laid back atmosphere.

This restaurant is cozy and a great place for a date or with the family! I've never been disappointed with my appetizer, main course or dessert! Delicious and plenty of options to choose from, you won't leave hungry!
