At Lilac, you'll find local dishes that are made from scratch, and they're absolutely phenomenal. Not only do they serve an amazing dinner here, but the brunch is some of the best in the state.
12. Olive B's Big Sky Bistro, 151 Center Ln, Big Sky
The concept of "casually elegant" dining is tough to pull off, but Olive B's does so effortlessly. You'll find a surprising amount of fresh seafood on the menu here as well as soups, salads, and hearty meaty entrees.
