What an amazing restaurant! We dined here for my husbands birthday and it was delicious. We ordered the olive green salad, crab cakes, bolognese pasta, berries and the skillet cookie. Service was impeccable and the drinks were fabulous. We will definitely be back!

Great dinner with friends. Lobster mac and cheese was delicious; the elk and halibut dinner portions were wonderful. Mud cake for dessert hit the spot. We will return!

Good food, good service, average at best. Friendly staff, and good atmosphere. One of my biggest pet peeves; dirty plates, silverware and shredded appetizers sitting in the middle of the table for a prolonged period of time. If I have to remind someone to take...the dishes and clear the table greater than twenty min, its an issue.More

We shuttled down from Mountain Village to eat here. We were glad we did! The server was friendly and informative. The food was excellent. My wife had the eggplant parmigiana. I had lamb chops. Both were cooked beautifully and tasty. The mud pie for dessert...was amazing, but the portion so large I couldn’t eat it all.More

The ambiance and service are nice, but the actual food is a complete let down. Steak was overcooked, the veal parmesan was horrible, The french onion soup watery. They had good wine and the server was a professional.

Hands down my favorite local restaurant that never gets old. The servers are kind and professional and the hostess is organized and welcoming. The dishes are always tasty and the menu has the perfect variety so that it can please any group. They have very...high demand so be sure to book in advance!More

What can I say? Olive B's doesn't disappoint! Another home run evening... service, drinks, appetizers and entrees. I don't think it matters what you order on the menu, it's consistently excellent, beautifully presented and flavorful. The chef clearly cares about every element of the dishes...that leave the kitchen. We have two more reservations before we head back.More

We arrived a couple minute’s earlier than our reservation, which was right when they opened, so we could modify from four (three adults and one child) to five and the hostess in no uncertain terms, let us know this was unacceptable. We even expressed absolute...understanding if we had to wait. In her attempt to evasively admonish us, she sort of reminded me of a person who could tell you to take a long walk off a short cliff while smiling the whole time and holding your hand til jumptime. We were celebrating the adoption of our two youngest children and our oldest was excited he was able to meet us. We could have let her set the tone, but that’s too much power granted to a hostess, in my opinion. We sincerely appreciated her not making a bigger deal about our modifying our party than she already did, especially since it made for quite a bit of an awkward imposition for us. The rest of the evening was a complete about face!! I cannot remember one of our waiters names (we started with Julie and ended with a gentleman;) however, both were very attentive and kind, even considering we added ONE warm body to our party of four. Service was impeccable and quite efficient!! Drinks were amazing. Complimentary chef plates were cute and tasty. French onion soup was probably the best we’ve ever had only in close competition with Bern’s Steakhouse. Our daughter had the “soup du jour” & she also felt it was the best clam chowder she’s ever consumed. I felt the menu looked amazing but in all honesty, subsequent dishes were a bit lackluster in presentation. I ordered the bison strip and while tasty it comes with steak fries, legit steak fries. Immediately drew me back to Steak & Ale days when you’d have that plastic pick stating steak temperature arrive to your table. Don’t get me wrong, we love fries but for the elegance of ambience in this establishment, it felt quite elementary of a pairing choice. Dessert was phenomenal: crème brûlée, brownie, ice cream, all superb!! We definitely recommend Olive B’s and look forward to returning.More

We ate there twice during our week stay in Big Sky. Would definitely be visiting again. The only issue is that they are not open on the weekend.

The food and cocktails were delicious. I had a halibut special with mashed potatoes and asparagus and it was perfect. Friends at the table also had the French onion soup, Cesar salad, chicken parm and all really enjoyed their meals. Oreo cheesecake to share was...a yummy finish to the meal. Would definitely make a reservation ahead!More

My husband and I enjoyed our dine in meal so much we ordered takeout 2 days later. The Bleu Cheese Creme Brûlée was like nothing I had ever had before, stacked yumminess of rich bleu cheese spread with arugula and thinly shaved roasted duck. The...best dish was their Wild Game Bolognese, a huge, rich serving; plenty for lunch or dinner the next day. My husband loved his elk medallions. We also enjoyed their crab cakes and calamari with our takeout meal. A must stop on your stay in Big Sky.More

Bibber and the crew are very accommodating. Their menu would lend itself to a gluten free meal. Suggest calling to confirm. Google Olive B’s Big Sky to view the menu.
