    Our serve was friendly but didn’t have a lot of enthusiasm about the drink or dinner menu. While she was good about checking if we wanted to order additional items, she didn’t clear off used plates or glasses or make sure that our waters were filled.

    Our server, Zack, was awesome! He was very helpful with questions about the food and cocktail menu. He checked in on use regularly and was very upbeat and charming. The other support staff who brought out our appetizers, dessert and entrée were very attentive as well, determining when we might need an extra plate or utensils. The food was fantastic! The Louisiana BBQ Shrimp - WOW! The Potato Soup with Bone Marrow was perfect for a chilly evening. We also had the Steak Frites with the mushroom demi glace on the side (my daughter doesn't care for mushrooms - I happily had the mushrooms and we dipped the frites in the sauce). I recommend rewriting the description for the Chocolate Cake because the current description doesn't do it justice. It is amazing!! All in - a wonderful dinner and we will recommend Westward Social to our friends, so long as they don't crowd the place when we're there.

    I had my first experience at Westward Social last week as a quick place to have lunch. I as overwhelmed by the food I ordered. It was absolutely delicious. Because of that first experience, we decided to have dinner there this week. Once again, it was overwhelming, so delicious. Our server could not have been any better. It was an awesome experience..

    Westward Social is a very good restaurant with great service and a modern menu with delicious food. Some of the highlights are their salads which makes the restaurant a refreshing change after days of delicious meat eating meals elsewhere. The chili was excellent as well but the ribs were a bit tough and an overabundance of spice. The wait staff is excellent, very friendly and attentive. Overall a great place for wonderful food.

    Good food! Appetizer- short ribs, then a Broccolini salad and a Tri-tip sandwich w/the best curly fries ever!! Pleasant atmosphere, although a little hard to hear, but a happy place to be. Our waitress was nice and did a great job.

    The food was outstanding and the service was amazing. We haven’t eaten out much during COVID but saw the spaced out tables, read and heard positive reviews, and decided to give it a try. Everything was fantastic. We have a seat close to the bar. We found out at the end of the meal that our server was the general manager. She was terrific. We tried the cheese beignets, smoked trout dip and kale salad for starters. Each one was delicious and loved by all 4 of us. For our main courses, we split the short ribs, salmon and brisket sandwich. All were outstanding and the portions were perfect to large. Dessert was very good - chocolate cake - but our least favorite item. Highly recommend. We felt very safe during COVID times and have debated a return for a second dinner during our stay in Big Sky.

    We had the fried oysters to start - very good (1 or two enough per person because they are big and rich) Had the roasted carrots with yogurt and pesto and will try at home it was so good. And the green salad was delicious with apples and blue cheese (they cut the apples in nice little slices instead of big chunks. The vinaigrette tasted homemade and they didn’t over dress. Also loved the parpadele pasta. Again, it’s rich in flavor too and could be split. Overall- best meal we had in Big Sky.

    Very attractive dining room with great atmosphere. Trout dip was a bit bland but the salmon was tasty. A dining companion really enjoyed the pork shank. Was an unpleasant surprise to find that adding salmon to my salad had more than doubled the price from $15 to $33.
    Westward SocialResponded on February 15, 2021
    Seafoodie- thank you for the 5 star review. The Ora King Salmon portion added to the salad, is identical to the entree portion. We don't list additions on the menu, but are always happy to modify to a guest request.
