We loved dining at Everetts, the only complain we would have is that it costs 20 each to ride the chair lift up to the restrauant. The view, food, service and food were great. I think it would be nice to have a discounted lift ticket if you are dining at the restrauant. ...makes for an expensive add on to a lunch.

The grilled cheese sandwich is terrible and basically a plate of melted cheese. You should change it to be a real grilled cheese sandwich.

We had low expectations for a restaurant at the top of a mountain. Our past experience has not been great taking chair lifts to a restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised that not only was Everrett's beautiful inside, the food we had for lunch was fantastic.

A nice establishment for an evening out at a unique location. Dinner menu is pricey, food was fair flavor and decent portion size. Didn't think it rivaled any other fine dining establishments but the overall experience was very nice. Loved the ride up and down the lift, the beautiful interior atmosphere was romantic enough to please my wife which was good enough for me.

Can't beat the view. Be sure to arrive early for cocktails; spectacular views of the mountain. You're paying a premium for the food and service, so set expectations. But that's not what the restaurant is about.

 (Birmingham)·Dined on March 30, 2017

Service was poor and inattentive. Several of our dishes arrived cold, and it was 10-15 minutes before anyone checked back in with us. The server offered to warm the food, and when he returned with it 5 minutes later, it was much better. This was unacceptable for a $54 elk loin au poivre. When we placed our original order, we ordered an extra dish "to go" at the end of the meal. The server forgot to put it in, so we sat and waited after paying the bill. The elk loin was OK. The vegetable side were very uninspired - bland mashed potatoes, small carrots, trumpet mushrooms. Very disappointing for a $600 meal.

 (New York Area)·Dined on March 24, 2017

The ride up and down the chairlift at night was a fun and different evening experience. I had requested a table near the window for views of the mountains at sunset but we did not get any view. We were seated in comfortable seats in the center of the restaurant with a view of the fireplace, bar and wait station. Very disappointing since this is one of the main reasons to eat in top of the mountain. The menu does not have many options, mostly game and steak and a few unusual fish items; no specials. I was not eating meat on Friday so I got a salad and veggie appetizer. The other five people in my party enjoyed their elk and steak but terribly overpriced. Our server seemed confused and was nice but not very professional. The bathroom was messy and out of toilet paper in one stall. Really disappointing. I recommend The Cabin when at Big Sky for great food and service.

One of the very best on-mountain ski resort restaurants; absolutely gorgeous with stunning views and excellent food. Exceptional veggie burger (regular ones are good too), and you can substitute side salad for fries. Truffle fries are good and generously portioned. Sadly, the outstanding root vegetable soup is gone, and the huckleberry tart isn't as good as it used to be. Service still good, although the hostile lumberjack has moved on (missed you Jake!)

Wonderful dining experience! Beautiful location and it was fun to take the chair lift up to and down from the restaurant. Our waiter was awesome - friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. No bus staff which was surprising for such a high end dining experience. Food was excellent - well presented and tasted great. We had the elk - perfectly prepared. Good drink choices. Not the best value as it was very expensive but we would definitely go back!!

We booked this reservation months in advance for a 40th birthday lunch. Despite putting this detail in the notes and telling our server, no special actions or services were extended to recognize the event. In fact, our server was so disengaged that we had to report his service to management. The food, atmosphere and incredible skiing helped us to overlook the disappointing service but I think it should be brought to management's attention that the prices and setting of Everett's 8,800 should go hand-in-hand with excellent service.

All in all, worth the trip for lunch - glorious surroundings on the mountain for skiers, food was generally outstanding, service terrific - we had a "splurge" lunch on the slopes, and most of the entrees were wonderful - grilled cheese sounded and looked great, got a little soggy and messy at the end. But all in all, worth the trip up

 (Sacramento)·Dined on March 2, 2017

We met friends at Big Sky Resort to ski for several days. I made reservations the 1st night we checked in for Everett's for the last night we would be there. The weather was overcast every night we were there, except the last night. We had gorgeous sunset views from up at the restaurant. We went up early so we would have time to take photos and enjoy the scenery. It was perfect! My husband told the waiter he wasn't sure he wanted to order dessert because we wanted to catch the first shuttle down. Next thing we knew, the manager came over and told my husband that he had total control over what time the shuttle left and would make sure we got on it if he wanted dessert. The manager was so nice and funny, that my husband couldn't pass up dessert after that.

After a ride up on the ram charger lift we were immediately greeted and shown to a great table. The portions are large enough to share. The foie gras appetizer was outstanding and a must have. Everetts salad was refreshing followed by the elk ribeye cooked to perfection. The ride in the the truck down was enjoyable on a snowy evening.

The restaurant is beautiful with great ambience . Our family of 6 went for dinner & we loved riding up and down on the lift and the snow truck. However the rest wasn't so great. Food not good. Nothing really appropriate on the children's menu for the kids. Could have been so easy if they offered pasta, instead they offered shrimp or steak &chicken. The adult dinners weren't so good either. The soup du hour had to be sent back because it wasn't edible. The crab appetizer wasn't appetizing. The fish entree wasn't very good either. The steaks were ok, salads weren't very interesting. Everyone seemed to enjoy the wine & the chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich but that's all.

Service- well I felt sorry for the waiter. I don't know what happened here. He was befuddled or something because he missed an entire order for one of the adults. He didn't write the order down so when appetizers were served the 6 th wasn't , he had to be flagged down for that and then we had to wait...so it went through the entire meal..Not acceptable. Once was ok but again and again wasn't.

This place has such great potential. Maybe the regular chef was not there, I don't know but it was a Friday night & they should have been on top of their game & they were not.
