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.
Ashley hostess/bartender/manager funny great personality. Cameron server personable attentive. Caesar and spinach salads and pork replace all good. Special elk bison beef chili mostly beans very little meat. Ashley asked re chili and we said all beans even tho asked Cameron who ensured no beans. Ashley comped the blackberry cabernet sorbet which was the best item we had.
Left sitting for long time without service
Mixup in whose covering? But good service recovery by staff and management
No salt or pepper on tables? Wtf?
Horrible art. Sorry
Wine was awesome
Salads very forgettable
No bread? Really?
Music really didn’t fit ambiance
Cool bar and lounge area
The waiter seemed to have an attitude, lacked customer service skills. The bartender was great. Trout was dry
Rainbow Ranch is quiet and low-key. The menu is varied, cocktails are unique, and the service is very courteous.
Our food was excellent and our server was attentive and on point. We had a great time!
Walk in: no host or hostess
Order drinks: out of the wine, Negroni has no Campari (1 of the 3 ingredients)
Appetizers: cheese comes with Ritz crackers
Dinner: steak is cooked one sided rare and the trout looks like salmon
The manager attempted to make it right but the meal was subpar and took two hours.
This meal was like going to see Hot Rod with Andy Samberg. The movie was so bad that it was actually super entertaining. By the end of the meal we all were just laughing at how poorly everything was going.
We had a fabulous meal! The bison tenderloin was to die for. Every dish was wonderful, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!
The food was cooked terribly inconsistent. Some dishes were overdone while others were completely uncooked. The server was nice but everything else left a lot to be desired.
Great service great food Cameron was fantastic
Loved the place! The variety of dishes offered was great! Delicious food and impressive wine selection! The drive from the Big Sky resort was short and easy! Wonderful staff and service! Wish we had more time to come back!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
We have been to R’Bow Rnch many times. This time the experience was average at best. Food was outstanding but...Lights to bright, Missing napkins, had to ask for pepper/salt, trash overflowing in bath room upstairs, no refill on water glasses, had to explain basic cocktail to waiter. Nothing terrible but not up to the standards of the past.
Loved it! Stayed at the hotel and ate here three of our four nights that we stayed in Montana!
Excellent service with wonderful food and drinks made or New Year’s Eve special.
We look forward to returning on next visit to Big Sky. This is more than worth driving down from the resort property. After dinner we stopped off for drinks at The Standard bar and fireworks at midnight at Big Sky. However, the meal at Rainbow Ranch was key to a fun ending to 2019.
The food was poor at best, servings were very small and priced high. Service was mediocre at best. Very disappointed given it’s high ratings.
Great service - first Xmas eve in Montana
Great spot for locals who want a good meal with quiet atmosphere, great wine selection and great service.
Very nice ambience! Great decor and right in the river. The service was very good. Food was so-so. We were there for the thanksgiving buffet - selections were good, but the food was average.
I was so happy that the restaurant had an afternoon/evening meal.
It was a great Thanksgiving afternoon. So nice to be able to see the beautiful scenery.
Great bar, too!
Although expensive, the dinner was delicious and the service outstanding.
Fabulous food! Fantastic Service! Best of Big Sky!
Rainbow Ranch has always been a special place. So happy they stayed open in the shoulder season this year! We hope they continue to do so.
Could stand to increase a limited and ho hum food menu. A ridiculously lengthy wine list, of which my selection was not available. Strike 1. Bar service slow, had the appetizer before the mule and glass of wine arrived. Strike 2. Everything lack luster, strike 3.
