“Delicious lunch in SLO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Pros:
* Delicious meals (soft tacos with shrimp & chicken caesar salad). Portions were perfect (not too big/not too small). The food was great: admittedly, our selections weren't too exotic but our meals were well done and delicious.
* Outstanding friendly service. Waiter was very attentive and able to answers our questions about SLO
* Reasonable prices

Cons:
* We ordered two items from the children's menu that were pretty unappetizing (cheese pizza and turkey chili nachos)

Order a beignet for dessert! Yum!!

“the best meal of the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

While attending a wedding in SLO I read the reviews and had only one free meal.. This was the place I picked and BOY was I glad- the reviews are true- interesting and innovative and fresh- the salad with goat cheese brulee was perfection and the catch of the day- stunning- dont miss this easy and comfortable spot

“Fantastic food and service. Fresh and affordable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

We came here last night for dinner. It was awesome. My husband got the pasta with lobster (he loved it) and I got the chicken caprese salad (delicious). They serve these adorable and yummy little corn breads for bread, which taste great and were so different than most restaurants. The ambiance was perfect for a date night. You could taste the freshness of the food and it was awesome to know that everything is local and that you're supporting local farmers. We loved this place! Eat here and you wont be disappointed.

“Always a tasty experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

The Big Sky Cafe has a fairly limited menu which means that rather than a five page list of frozen, reheated foods, their food is exceptionally fresh and delicious. There is always an interesting special each day. Their soups are always interesting. The servers are friendly and helpful. This is a great place to bring someone on a special date. There is a full bar. The desserts are superb. You have to try Big Sky!
