Great food and great waitstaff. Only problem is we wanted an after dinner drink and rather than camp at our table and to allow them to turn the table for another guest, we got up and went to the bar at 8p. We were then turned away saying they were too busy to serve us after we dropped $350 on dinner. Weak! Other than that a good experience, good food, and beautiful setting for sunset on the mountain.

This lunch is an annual occasion for our family when skiing at Big Sky. The location is stunning, our waitress was very over worked but still very helpful. The Rosti does not bear any resemblance to any Rosti served in Europe or even in many Colorado resorts. Very little cheese,a thick slice of ham smothered in mushroom sauce? Someone in the kitchen lost the plot. The Irish Coffee was cold. Last year food was much better. Slow it down, hire more servers and fly to Switzerland before you start listing their dishes.

Fantastic break from a great ski day. Food was delicious, service good and setting very nice. We were there on a snowy day, so didn't have the views - but we can tell it would have been spectacular. Really appreciated the cubbies for our ski helmets and other gear. Definitely recommend a reservation, as the place was very busy.

My Swinebraten was dry and over cooked. The service was good, but the food left a lot to be desired. I expected more given the reputation and prices.

Took 45 min for our food to arrive. Salad was just ok, pistachios soggy, tomatoes yuchy. Good place I’d you want an over priced burger with a great view.

The service and experience were good
The prices are high, which is not necessarily unreasonable given the overall experience and logistics but the food is average at best . Would be fine w high prices to get the unique experience if the food was good.

From start to finish we were impressed by the high standard and quality of the ambiance, food and staff the evening we spent at Everett's. Although it was a busy night, the noise level was fine and Rachel looked after us well. Coming from New Zealand we had questions about the menu which she was able to answer perfectly. Our biggest compliment goes to everything we ate as it was flavoursome without being overly rich! The best meal we ate in our two week stay!

My husbands food was good but I had the pork, red cabbage sourkraut and gnocchi. My side items were very good but the pork was as hard as a hockey puck. I ate two bites and that was it. I had to have a snack 1 hour later as I was still hungry.

Everything, from changing our reservation and then being greeted and remembered by Ryan Bear, was terrific. Our server, Sarah, was great with welcoming us and making suggestions, was awesome. The Turkey sandwich, the soups and the profiteroles were worth the visit! Mr. Bear visited our table and made sure that we were pleased and taken care of!

My husband and I had lunch here 3 years ago and had a wonderful time. Things have gone down hill since. The chili I ordered was barely warm, our sandwich was soggy and the fries were cold. It was very disappointing. We had reservations and still had to wait 15 minutes before being seated.

We went for dinner and it was an experience just to ride the heated seats lift up to the venue, while headlamp skiers went by below and the stars were so bright in the sky above. The bartender made great cocktails and they have an impressive wine & spirits menu- and the food and service was fantastic. Well worth it on all fronts.

The high point of a visit to Big Sky is dinner there. Heated chair lift ride and then world class cuisine, but not for those on a budget. Nevertheless, worth a splurge.

I can’t remember the last time I took the time to make a complaint after visiting a restaurant but yesterday’s experience at this restaurant was so incredibly disappointing.

I searched out and chose this restaurant out of many due to the claims of exceptional food, “an elevated dining experience” and the desire to expose my older daughter and niece to a more refined dining/food experience. I made reservations many days in advance and talked up the experience we were certain to have there.

Unfortunately it was one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. We were sat at a back corner table next to a door which was uncomfortably drafty and cold. Our table was so squished in to the next table that every time the gentleman next to us tried to get up and then get back into his spot (twice this occurred), he knocked our table and waters spilled everywhere. My niece and I both ordered the salmon salad. Both salads came without all the described ingredients.... we had salads with a ton of arugula, 3 cut cherry tomatoes, and a piece of salmon on top of that. Dressing on the side. The other ingredients described on the menu (farro, apples, goat cheese) were no where to be found. When I asked out server about this, she had to look at the menu to see what we were missing. She then said she’d bring out the ingredients that were missing?!? As my daughter’s food got cold, we all waited 15 minutes for her to return with a ramekin of a chunk of goat cheese and a ramekin with an apple cut into random chunks...impossible to even take a bite of them with the salad do to their “chunkiness”.

We left completely disappointed and on top of that, I spent 60.00 on two salads that were worth about 5.00.

I will be posting this review everywhere possible. It’s so disappointing that this restaurant makes claims that are in no way close to the experience and on top of that charge outrageous prices for poor food.

Food is just okay. Nothing to write home about. The buffalo tenderloin was over cooked. The warm skillet cookie was neither warm nor fresh. The cookie was hard as a rock. Like it came out of a box. Just not impressed....

I brought my non skiing pregnant daughter and my non skiing daughter-in-law for a fun ride up the mountain on Ramcharger and a great lunch at Everett’s. Blue Bird day, wow view of Lone Peak and Jessica, our waitress, was lovely. I highly recommend this for non skiing family and friends. Thanks Everett’s.

The kitchen was painfully slow. It took over two hours for our food to be served. Beverage service was equally slow. We ordered a bottle of wine to have with dinner, but everyone in our party had already finished eating before the wine was served. Grossly understaffed. Given the amount we spent, we were very disappointed with our experience at Everett’s.
