This has been my family's favorite restaurant for years! There are always vegetarian choices on the menu and delicious "specials" every day. We always come away happy from a great meal at Big Sky.

Fabulous food and service. Always a great experience! The breakfast is da bomb. The sweet potato fries are to die for and we just love every dining experience we have there. I have tried to get the 1/2 off dining experience but it sells out immediately!

Unbelievable location on bay with excellent food and service. The breakfast burrito is big enough to feed two hungry adults.

We took an out-of-town guest here and she was blown away by the menu selections, which are not only delicious but health-conscious and a modern take on many older favorites. Those on special diets (such as my friend) can find great entrees that cater to their needs, along with vegetarian and vegan fare. Everything we had was prepared perfectly and... More

Something spicy, something sweet, something saucy and lots of drinks. Big Sky in SLO is one of our "go to" restaurants. The big menu has a solid variety of tasty dishes that can satisfy even if you're a vegetarian. They pride themselves on local organic ingredients and the flavors say it all. Great location in downtown San Luis Obispo. Perfect... More

A favorite restaurant of ours in SLO. We ate here twice during our visit. It has an exciting menu and an exciting wine list, especially the wines by the glass.

Asked waitress if we could try their awesome jambalaya at 915 am on a Thursday and she delivered. Try this dish, it was amazing. You will not be disappointed.

I've eaten here twice now - once for lunch and once for dinner. The menu has a great selection of different types of food and you always have the sense that they are cognizant of keeping the healthy factor high. On both occasions although I enjoyed the meal I wasn't overly blown away.
