I've been here for breakfast and dinner. Innovative, delicious dishes. Highly recommend! Tonight I had the lobster Mac and cheese...yummy!

“Always a tasty experience”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!

“Excellent Food and Nice Ombiance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

This was a really nice experience. The restaurant is right downtown, beautiful decor, but not pretentious! Food was excellent. Very healthy and if you aren't too hungry, their appetizers are great. I would recommend and I would go back.

“Variety of flavors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

We have been going to Big Sky for years. it is a local favorite. The menu is eclectic and the wine list is always top quality. Everyone can find something delicious on the menu. Daily specials are always delicious and interesting and the wine by the glass list is one of the best in the county! Lots of local choices.

“Big Sky Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

I visited here in October 2012, I had the Seared Scallops with Sweet Pea Risotto and greens, My son had the Braised Pork with Apricot Glaze and my daughter in law had the Seafood Paia. We ended up making it sort of a family meal with a great bottle of local Baileyanna wine. It was an excellent evening. The staff was courteous and we tried their Pumpkin soup which was excellent.
