Restaurants and Apre' Ski places to eat - Big Sky

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

A group of us are headed to Big Sky this Saturday and this is our first trip to the resort.  We're staying on the mountain and plan to grab all the food, groceries and such that we need in Bozeman. 

 

Just in case we want to pass on cooking one night or so - does anyone recommend one of the eateries in the village as particularly good to eat at ... not talking partying, rather good (great) food, comfortable-relaxing atmosphere, nice glass of wine, et al.  From the Big Sky web site there are many establishments to choose from ... but always like to have recommendations from ones first hand. 

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

The best place to eat at Big Sky is in a Best Western motel, but don't let that confuse you. Its called 'Buck-T-4' and it has been continually upgrading its offerings to the point it is starting to rival 'The Mint' in Belgrade as the best place to get a steak (cow, buffalo or elk) in the state. Buck-T-4 also has the best wine selection in the state and its wine prices are much more reasonable than most places in the Big Sky area.

 

If you are in the Bozeman area around dinner go to 'The Mint' in Belgrade....its only a mile from the airport. Order a blackened (or peppered....my choice) ribeye medium rare for one of the best steaks you'll ever have. If you want to try buffalo their buffalo tenderloin is better than anything Ted's has to offer.

 

A place we always hit while at Big Sky is the Blue Moon Bakery. They have great pasties, cookies, loaf cakes and decent pizza by the slice. 

 

Our favorite lunch place in Big Sky is the deli/grocery store in the Moonlight Basin lodge. You can get there and back using your Big Sky ticket. It has killer Reubens and other good sandwiches.

Great food advice from Rio.  Buck's T-4 has a shuttle van so you can get a pick up on mtn and don't have to worry about DUI.

A fast and great breakfast is a "Mufflette" that Sylvia offers at the Firehole Lounge at the Huntley Hotel. It's an Omlette baked as a Muffin. She has 3 kinds (bacon, sausage or vegetarian). It's just 5 bucks and tastes great.

A quick stop for lunch is also the Black Kettle Soup shack at the Lone Peak Tripple. (Didn't have the soups there this season yet, but last year it was a good and quick lunch.)

The Moonlight Deli is not quite as good anymore as it was. With the new managment, the prices went up, not the quality though.

 

Have fun skiing in Big Sky,

Ursula
