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.

The hotel desk clerk recommended By Word of Mouth (BWOM) Restaurant. The proprietors graciously offered a 10% discount upon presenting our hotel room key. The waiter, Blair, was attentive and charming. The Bistro Menu offered excellent items: Starters, Small Plates, Pub Food and Entrees. We were so delighted to find edgy cocktails, excellent wine and creative offerings in a land... More

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.

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
