    We live in Bozeman, but kept hearing about this incredible restaurant. We finally decided to give Olive B's a try on our weekend getaway to Big Sky.... We were not disappointed. Our waitress was great... Very attentive and gave us excellent suggestions on the menu. My husband had the tenderloin and is still talking about the lobster mashed potatoes and how good they were. I had the halibut special and it was excellent. We also shared the crab cakes as an appatizer and they were very yummy! We will definitely be back to Olive B's next time we are in Big Sky!

    With so many wonderful restaurants in Big Sky, it is always a hard choice when we go out. This is Truly one of our go to dinner spots. We have known the owner for 25+ years and have never had a bad meal, at whatever restaurant he has worked. In his own restaurant, is where he truly shines. The Duck, by far is my favorite, Juicy, Amazingly Crisp and just plain YUMMY. You will never be disappointed with your meal.

    Seated in lovely booth near open kitchen and interesting wine storage space. Varied menu with something for everyone - teenage kids included. Attentive and affable service. Will return next time we're in Big Sky. Very positive experience. Lovely patio we did not use. Situated in "attractive strip mall". No view.

    The open table reservation forum worked flawlessly. As to the meal all four entrees were perfectly prepared, artfully presented and delicious. A really good selection of items is available and served with fresh bread and butter. We highly recommend the hummus platter as an appetizer, generous plate for four of house prepared hummus with yummy toasted, fresh pita bread and veggie sticks. No dessert this time but on a previous visit we splurged on an outrageously good mud pie. Good selection of wines, full bar.

    We are seasonal residents in Big Sky and eat at Olive B's often. The service is consistently great. The food is superb. I had the special, Halibut, and it was the best I have ever eaten. The fish was so fresh with a light sauce. Perfection. You will not be disappointed no matter what you order. Olive B's is a gem in Big Sky.

    On out way to Yellowstone, we stopped in after passing by the restaurant on the way up to our house. Staff was very attentive. My wife ordered the Fried Green Tomato BLT and I tried the Bison Burger and a side salad. Being from Atlanta we are always curious as to try various preparations of Fried Green Tomatos...all food was well prepared, cooked properly, and seasoned well. For desert, we ordered the Frozen Huckleberry Key Lime pie and it was delicious. All in all, a nice place to eat and would recommend to anyone going to Big Sky to give it a try.

Oh yes!! Crispy, tender breast, pan seared, in a Grand-Veneur sauce, with brandied red grapes. Seriously delicious!!! Others in our party had the Duck, Halibut, and scallops. The reviews... Like Duh!

    There was a kids party in the back, so we opted to forgo the booth they saved for us to sit at the bar with window view. Rick, the bartender was great; taking our orders and answering questions about the local spirits. He made us great cocktails while breaking down the Big Sky scene. The meal started with an amuse bouche, the best squaw bread, followed by beautiful and very savory stag and halibut entrees. The chef and staff care about what they put out. We had an excellent experience!

    My wife had an Olive B's salad, the halibut special, and a glass of red wine. I enjoyed my spinach salad, the crab cake appetizer, and a Montana Manhattan. We shared the pecan diamond dessert. Our food was wonderful and our server, Anna, was excellent. In our opinion, Olive B's is the best restaurant in Big Sky. Also, Olive B's is the only local restaurant associated with the Open Table program.

    Olive B's never disappoints. I love Prince Edward Island mussels and try them wherever I travel. Olive B's are the best anywhere. This "appetizer" is a pound, so it can be an entree if paired with soup, salad or another appetizer. The divers scallops are also good and the portion generous. Bibber, the owner, is friendly and gregarious. The wait staff is friendly and accomplished. What I particularly like, but don't often experience in restaurants, is that when your food is done, IT IS SERVED IMMEDIATELY by whatever member of the wait staff is available. It doesn't sit cooking under a heat lamp until "your" waiter or waitress (who may be busy with other customers) can get back to the kitchen to retrieve it. Very nice.

    My boyfriend and I frequent Olive B's and use it for all of our special occasion dining. The food is fantastic and varied - always wonderful specials. The skillet cookie is the perfect dessert and we always have to save room for that. The entree portions are generous and we nearly always end up with lunch for the next day too. The only negative thing about the place is the noise - it can get quite noisy in there especially on a weekend night when the bar area is also full... but it's manageable.

    Love the specials, can't get enough of the lobster mashed potatoes, but I dream of the creme brûlée. You can taste every fresh organic ingredient. Not too sweet, and just the lightest crunch...and the creamiest of creamy custards.

    We had a nice meal...service was fine. Ambiance was not great....we were seated right next to the bar. Salads were good...steaks were mediocre. We should have skipped the dessert, which was an overly sweet pecan bar. Next time in Big Sky we will skip Olive B's and go straight to the Lotus Pad, which I found to be a more gratifying culinary experience.

    The first time we went to Olive B's we had a great meal and great service. We liked it so much we took some friends the next night. We had another great meal and really enjoyed everything. The service was very attentive. The dessert menu was so good we had a hard time picking one thing. Big Sky really needed more good restaurants and this one is perfect. We will definitely come back to Olive B's when we get back up during ski season.

    Had dinner here for our anniversary. Made special trip from Bozeman. Ambiance was great! Service was pretty good, however, we did have to remind our server about our drink order and she forgot to order our salad. Otherwise, she was very friendly and attentive. The appetizer and soup were excellent. Main course was ok. We were not overly impressed with our entrées. Too much going on and strange mix of flavors. One plate was sent back for being under cooked. Maybe it was just the wrong choice? Prices are fair. Would consider going back for special occasion.

    We had a great dinner. The wine list is small but nice. It is a small restaurant but there are some interesting sitting areas. If you have 4-5 people ask for one of the 1/2 round booths.... they are great. food was very good, but not over the top. Portions were larger than we expected. Our server was very nice and service was quick. Overall a very good restaurant.

    Olive B's was probably the best dining experience of our lives. We ate here to celebrate the last night of our honeymoon. They accommodated everything we asked for. They sat us by the window to watch a gorgeous sunset and also gave us a candlelit dinner. Our server Crystal was so kind and answered all our questions. On top of it all, the food was absolutely divine. What a wonderful experience. I was a little worried because the other places we had been to in big sky were disappointing. But Olive B's was not in Amy way.
