This place can get busy at dinner -- no lunch service -- so go early if you want to be seated right away. On weekends there was music outside, but we left before it started. The outside bar is clever with swings for seats. Lovely...More

The Riverhouse Grill is in a beautiful setting on the Gallatin River in Big Sky. The BBQ is great, the culture is fun, and the live music and dancing made for an enjoyable evening. Definitely worth the visit.

We love this place; whether it's for a quick cocktail or their family platter of BBQ. The views are amazing, the bands are fun, and the BBQ is the best in the area.

I am from Texas and this place serves the BEST BBQ! Don't let the crowded parking lot stop you from going. They have plenty of room and it is worth the wait, if you have to wait, we only waited maybe 10 minutes.

After an all day tour of Yellowstone our group of 5 stopped here for dinner. Good selection of beers and cocktails. We shared appetizers of chicken wings and fried okra, both very good. For dinner we had the pulled pork, brisket, and ribs. All very...More
