Great experience but the menu needs to be changed up. We have been there many times last year and this year and the menu is the same. The food is good but maybe offer a few specials during the week....

We had a family gathering for a late lunch. The team took very good care of us. I do think the restaurant is understaffed, somewhat. The management was very attentive and that helped. Cocktails were really delicious!!

While the service was good and the view is nice, the food was mediocre at best. I had what was supposed to be a horseradish crusted steelhead, which had absolutely no flavor. My husband's braised Elk was also dry and tasteless.

We tried Everett’s 8,800 one evening during a ski trip with friends at Big Sky, MT, on January 30, 2019.

We almost didn’t make a reservation because of several poor reviews on Open Table, but decided try it and make our own determination — and very glad we did!

Getting to the restaurant is an experience in itself. We walked out to the Ram Charger ski lift and were greeted by the lift attendant to check in. We boarded the 8-passenger lift, which had heated seats and a plexiglass bubble that you could pull down to keep warm. Luckily, the night sky was clear, so we had the most amazing view of the night sky filled with stars that looked close enough to touch.

We arrived at the top of the lift after a 5-minute ride and walked over to the restaurant. In the dark, on top of a cold and snowy peak, the restaurant looked so inviting with warm lighting flooding out of the windows and a beautiful, roaring fire in the porch fireplace.

We entered the restaurant and were promptly greeted by a friendly staff member. We were seated immediately at a comfortable table near the fireplace. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly throughout the evening. Our party of 6 had appetizers, entrees, and dessert. The food was excellent (fresh, seasonal ingredients that were expertly prepared) and the wait time for the various courses was very reasonable. The interior of the restaurant was beautifully done, and the ambiance was cozy and inviting. The prices are on the high side, but worth paying for such a wonderful evening.

Normally, i wouldnt write a review, but i was very disappointed in the 2 lunches we had there. It’s a beautiful venue in need of somer operational help. The food is overpriced and underwhelming given the beauty of the structure, scenic view and wonderful decor. We had several meals there and all were not up to snuff. We slogged through french onion soup with rock hard bread, a severely over cooked and under seasoned game burger, elk chili that wasn’t nearly as good as Montana Jack’s and various other misfires. I hope Big Sky can get this back on track.

Great food and service. Highly recommend for dinner. However, if you are a party of two and going for a romantic event, plan to have other parties seated on either side of you close enough proximity to hear every word of your conversation. We were placed at a table for two, with tables of two very very close on on both sides (just enough room to stand up and walk through sideways). We could hear both conversations as though we we're at the same table, disappointing, considering that the purpose of our dinner event was noted at the time of reservation four days in advance. If special occasion, maybe call in advance to clarify your seating assignment. Otherwise, food, ambience and service were all great and I would recommend for dinner

They were out of 1/3 of their entrees! We had a very disappointing experience at Everett's 8800. The location, ambience, and drinks were great. We had a 7:45 reservation, had drinks at the bar, perused the menu and were seated at our table in front of the fireplace....awesome start! The waitress came to take our order and told us they were out of the veal and elk shank - wait, what??? There are only 6 entrees on the menu and 3 of the 4 in our party were ordering the veal or elk shank. We decided to leave and go to Peaks (located in the Summit hotel) where we had a FABULOUS meal! Friends of ours decided to try their luck and went to dinner the following night, 7:30 reservation, 1 elk shank available. Something is wrong with the management if you don't have enough food on a Wednesday and Thursday night. Would not recommend!

Terrible. Cold food, incorrect food, wait staff argumentative, one food order came out and it looked like a small kids order for over $50.00. Struggle to get my soft drink refilled. Finally, one of our group members went up to the waitress station and refilled our water glasses himself.

We have been dining here for a few years and have always had a unique experience.
This year was very disappointing. The lounge area where we could have a pre dinner coctail by the fire is now filled with tables. Our table was so close to the two tables next to us it became a table for 10 instead of six. There clearly was a lack of appropriate wait staff who had difficulty serving in this over crowded environment.
Food service was slow and some of our meals were not warm. When they were brought back to the table it was clear the plate was warmed but not the food.
We will try again next year, hopefully it will return to being the special experience it was and not the cafeteria experience we had.

It is a unique experience to ride the chairlift up to the restaurant, but that was one cold ride! It was snowing hard, but the seat heaters either weren’t working or weren’t turned on. (I had dressed so that they WOULD be on.).

The servers were all warm and welcoming, and I appreciated their attention to my food allergy. The food was not very good - I had the elk shank, and it had a bitter taste to it that made the meal rather unpalatable. The cherry almond custard dessert was delicious.

A fun experience we have done before, but with the ugly building at the top of Andesite for the new Ramcharger 8 lift, the view is no longer so beautiful.

Location, location, location. Fabulous for a special lunch in the midst of a great ski day and even more fun to have dinner at the top of the lift "above it all." We had and recommend the Rosti (somewhat different with less cheese than when I had it in Switzerland but quite good) and the Bison Burger (appearances can be deceiving since it looked mediocre but turned out to have a great tasting roll and lovely char-browning.) The Server didn't appear to be overworked in terms of number of tables, but she was really slow about checking in on things. However, eventually everything arrived and we were quite happy with the ambiance (avoid sitting next to the door out to the porch because it is quite cold) so what is there to complain about?

The food was great. The service was terrible. Our server was clearly having a bad day and there seemed to be a lack of support from management to help her out resulting in long waits for service and food, missing elements for example asking for drink order without drink menu, missing silverware, incorrect items on bill and difficulty adjusting the bill. Very disappointing for what was supposed to be a "premium" experience.

A caveat to begin...the manager comped my two drinks. That being said, comping the drinks didn't begin to offset the horrible experience my family and I had at Everett's 8800. Our night began at 715 and by 745 we had received only a portion of our drink order. Apparently, three vodka's on the rocks, sparking water, and a diet coke were a taxing order for the less-than-well-oiled staff at Everett's.

Long story short, if you are going to Everett's and expecting a meal commensurate with the outlandish prices you'll be let down. I ordered the $59 "Prime" T-Bone and it arrived looking like an anatomy experiment--it was dissected from the bone and sliced crosswise, allowing what juices remained in the severely overcooked steak to seep out. In all my years cooking my own steaks, and ordering steaks at places like the Capital Grille, Morton's, I have never seen a restaurant serve a steak sliced in the manner in which the chef served this one. I'm sure there are instances when this is the appropriate presentation; this was not one of them. Describe this presentation on the menu and give the customer an opportunity to choose how it is served.

My wife ordered the Wild Alaskan Ivory King Salmon and it was just as overcooked my steak. All told, we spent most of our time at Everett's 8800 waiting for one thing or another.

Our server was very nice and apologetic for how the steak was prepared and delivered. The manager, despite comping the steak, left a lot to be desired. His apologies were perfunctory and his concern for an entire party of dissatisfied customers was nonexistent. Under no circumstances would I recommend Everett's 8800. Steer clear.

This experience was a total let down. 100% fail.

The food was fabulous and light music playing in the background. The foot was great. I recommend the Honey Brulee. It was to die for. The temperature of the restaurant was comfortable and I didn't have to worry about a cold breeze on a cold night. The ride up the new Ram Charger 8 was equally pleasant. Riding back down the mountain was beautiful as I was looking over the town of Big Sky through the dark night. The lights below twinkled and it felt like I was flying a plane.
