Although highly recommended, our meal was mediocre. The ceviche was fishy and suspect. The duck was good, and the bison tasty. The surroundings and views, however, are worth a meal, just moderate your expectations. I realize they are trying to adjust to challenging circumstances, so have cut the restaurant some slack.
This restaurant and lodge is first class. A real gem
Great food great view great service
What a GREAT place to celebrate my 68 birthday. Hostess was super, she sat us outside overlooking the river— super view. Our server, Cameron couldn’t have been better. He was inventive, well informed, and very personable. He recommended a wonderful wine that paired well with my trout. Everything we ordered was perfectly prepared and timed to arrive just when we were ready.
Highly recommend this place. Just wish we would have found the Rainbow Ranch as a place to stay as well as dine.
The lodge and grounds were beautiful. Sat outside and enjoyed the view. Food was good I had the filet that was delicious, my husband had the short rib special and it was ok a little tough.
Cold food oversalted , slow service,
Chef Brian Wood did a fantastic job. We loved the food and the service.
Basic older restaurant trying to be upscale with very small portions our 45$ steak was honestly appetizer sized. Went there to book for a large group in the future. We decided against it and won’t be back.
Incredible. Fabulous. Epic
Gorgeous setting. Everything was delicious and our server was attentive, helpful and super friendly! Highly recommend.
We enjoyed a lovely dinner at the Rainbow Ranch Lodge. Our table on the deck overlooked the beautiful Gallatin River on a perfect weather evening. The entrees we chose (halibut and a salmon special) were exquisitely prepared, and were literal unique flavor bursts! The grilled romaine salad was delicious too! A certain “must visit” for Big Sky Area travelers and locals!
We sat out on the porch with the moon rising over the mountains... our meal was delicious!
Amazing everything! Cameron our sweet server was amazing! Such a wonderful young man. Food superb! We love this place!!
Delightful setting. We arrived early and got drinks in the bar and wandered the property. The Roth Cabernet was very good. Grilled Romaine salad and awesome Spinach soup. The filets were excellent but not warm so they heated and replated them. Our server also provided a complimentary dessert and two drinks to make amends. It was an exceptional dinner.
Incredible ambiance, service, and food by the Gallatin River. Can’t beat this experience!
The food was fantastic, service was impeccable. Great menu! We will definitely return.
Beautiful views of the river and mountains! Outdoor dining is what we were seeking and were very happy with their porch dining. The food was a touch too salty but presentation and service was excellent!! Specialty cocktails were also delish.
We had an amazing experience and the food is by far the best in town.
Food was great, waited 45 minutes after reservation before we were seated. The service staff was great, but they appeared to be understaffed. Great wine list, Bison Tataki was fantastic. I would eat with them again if in the area.
Lovely scenery, food, service. Highly recommend!
Shelby was our waitress and was outstanding. Setting and food spectacular. Halibut dish was one of the best ever. Definitely recommend. Headed back later this week
We sat out on the patio for dinner and it was absolutely marvelous! Pretty view of the mountain, the river is down below and their property is so pretty.
The food was delicious. Our server wasn't the best, but he was delightful and tried hard and we enjoyed chatting with him so no big deal. The manager of the restaurant ( or property? Greg?) was super helpful and even treated us to a round of drinks after we chatted with him about our plans the next day to tour Yellowstone.
I don't know if we'll ever be back to Big Sky, but if we do--and I hope so, would definitely stay and dine here again!
Amazing! Food was delicious! Ambiance is perfect. A really really lovely spot!
We enjoyed our food. The Brussels sprouts and melon salad were AMAZING! The Elk Rack was delicious. Only thing we didn’t care for was the way to order (at hostess stand) and plastic cups and cutlery.
food and service were fantastic, server (Cameron) was really personal and accommodating to our requests. Great 24 year anniversary dinner!
We are staying at the lodge at the restaurant and made a reservation hoping to sit out on the patio. We arrived for our reservation and they told us there would be a wait and we would not be able to sit outside. So we asked if we could wait and they said no because there were others (walkins) that were waiting. We sat inside and it was extremely and uncomfortably warm.
Delicious dinner in a beautiful lodge
The food was phenomenal and the service staff was extremely friendly! The chef prepared an off-the-menu entree of Black Cod that melted in my mouth. Couldn’t have asked for a better meal or experience! We hope to be back again soon.
Amazing food outside on deck with beautiful view. Server wore a mask at all times. Most other patrons had them. The daily special, scallops, had a truly wonderful sauce with apple bacon, tiny pieces of crisped kale, mushroom risotto, thick creamy sauce they said had jalapeño in it(but I didn’t taste any hot spice) . Bison tatare was excellent.
Our group of 10 had a great time! Food was delish and service very attentive.
Wonderful family dinner out on the deck. Great service and new chef is great.
We loved our dinner outside and the service was excellent. Thank you also for serving our Big Sky Collection wines. We so appreciate it!
Everything was amazing and cooked to perfection! The cheeseboard offered a wide variety and was delicious! My fillet was cooked perfectly and my son loved his duck. Trout was awesome and our pineapple crème brûlée and chocolate molten cake were perfect!
If I could give zero stars I would. This dining experience was over before it even started. No hostess was present when we entered. After 10 minutes waiting, we were shown to a table. We received no menus. For 20 minutes we waited for any one of 3 waiters to acknowledge us, which they did not. After a total of 30 minutes of sitting in a corner unattended, we got up and left. True to form, no one even saw us leave. I would never recommend this restaurant.
The view is amazing, the food is creative and delicious and the ambiance is perfect.
Terrible over priced food
This is one of our favorite restaurants and we always visit when we are in Big Sky. It is a beautiful restaurant with wonderful food.
Our waiter basically ignored us for half the meal. We tried ordering drinks and he left without taking half the tables orders. Our food took over an hour after we had ordered it and nobody at the table was happy with their meal. Might be important to add that we were the only group in there and it honestly felt like the staff was hanging out in the back and forgot that they had a table. Then we got our bill and it was VERY expensive, the most expensive of our 5 nights in the area. We ordered less food at this place than any other and spent more money than any other restaurant, and on top of that it was our least favorite meal. Would absolutely not go back.
Once again we had a wonderful meal at Rainbow Ranch. Everything was spot on from food, presentation and service
Service and ambiance was outstanding.
Food was great I’ve but our meals were either overdone or cold. Maybe a bad night?
Flatbread was excellent and hot.
Great wine selection.
