We are owners here at the Summit Hotel. Good luck getting served here! It is SLOW even when it is slow. If you can get a drink or food it is actually all very good. The poor service over and over and over has been what we are getting irritated with.

I had lunch there the other day. The location is greater as you can ski right to the facility. I had a hamburger that was ok, not great. The seats aren't suitable for eating a meal, as you tilt back too far from the table. The service was good. The place was crowded.

Am still dreaming of my salmon Cesar salad from here. Never had a bad meal here during our stay at big sky resorts. Some of the other restaurants feel a little mass produced. Carabiners didn't have that feel. The shrimp appetizer is also good but be aware is literally two skewers so don't expect it to be a meal in... More

The food and atmosphere were great, but the food was a bit pricy for what we got and the service was decent. I was happy they had good gluten free options, including bread! :)

Located in Summit Hotel where we are staying. Stopped in for a coffee drink break during our ski day. Nice decor. Menu looks appetizing. Server was good. Not crowded. Somewhat expensive as one would expect at a resort facility. I gave a 4 star instead of 5 review simply due to personal preference. We prefer a lively, more laid back... More

Lunched here on a few occasions over New Year and food, drinks and service were of high quality. Little on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for. All tables enjoy a view onto the slopes and a full bar service is available.
