We had a group of 9 for dinner and the staff arranged a mostly private room. Lots of interesting game choices. The lamb is superb! The restaurant is in a small motel and has a long, interesting history. Certainly a great choice away from the resort fare on the mountain.

I was in town for work as a beer sales rep and enjoyed dinner alone at the bar. But I wasn't alone long! The owner, the bartender and some locals and I struck up conversations, talked food, beer, wine and all that is big sky. They were all very friendly and knowledgeable. I even got a little history lesson on... More

A great menu with a good selection of local game dishes with some others mixed in. Very friendly staff, efficient service and very flavorful food. The complimentary shuttle was a nice touch .

We live in Big Sky and have eaten at Buck's T4 many times over the years and have always been very pleased overall. They were our first choice for a Valentine's dinner with friends and we came away a bit disappointed with some of the dishes. We shared the calamari for an appetizer which was delicious. I ordered a green... More

Going with a ski club, you expect the level of dining to go down a bit, except Buck's T-4. I have eaten here 20 years ago, 10 years ago and it is still the best dining in the Gallatin River area. Where Big Sky food is so-so from where I've eaten, this is exceptional food. Always love their New Zealand... More

Buck's is legendary in the Big Sky area, and with good reason. The food is consistently excellent, especially the wild game entrees. Red deer chops were wonderful, walleye outstanding, And my personal favorite for the third year in a row was the wild game meatloaf. The serving staff are always knowledgeable and attentive.

We were having a skiing trip to big sky , staying in a cabin right on the slopes and decided to go here for dinner one night. The food was excellent , cooked perfectly and presented well. I don't have any complaints , I just wish the server had been a bit more welcoming, more engaging. She didn't smile or... More

Fantastic meal! The service was wonderful, even on a Saturday night. Huckleberry martini is very worth trying. They were nice enough to offer to split salads. Our party ordered red deer, chicken fried rabbit, walleye, and trout. Everything was cooked to perfection and was delicious. The cookie in a skillet was the perfect end to the meal and all four...

For a real Montana experience, go to Buck's. The friendly folks at the door and mountain feel of the restaurant are immediately apparent. Started out with an assortment of charcuterie and some of the crispiest tater tots you will find. I had the red deer with duck bacon grits. This was the best game dish I've ever experienced. Don't forget... More

We did this after an extremely difficult mountain race at big sky. Starting with amazingly refreshing Moscow Mule variations, we moved on to a fantastic charcuterie plate and some amazing entrees. Everything at the table was incredible, from wild game to fish. It lives up to the hype!
