When I come here I like to have drinks here and snack bites. Food is average, but the best thing about it is the quieter atmosphere. So many places are so noisy that you have to yell at each other across the table to hear....More

If you're sick of loud, noisy bars and menus with wings and nachos, check out the Carabiner Lounge in the Summit Hotel. We found this oasis on a Saturday night about 7:30. There was no live music at that time, so it was a peaceful...More

Nice atmosphere, the drinks and views were great. My waitress spilled my drink on me but she was working hard and very busy and very good. Music made it hard to talk as it was so loud so our group dismantled

Came for late night after slopes. Delicious cosmopolitan! Had sushi and shrimp which wasn’t the best I’ve had, but it was fine. Service was a little slow, although accommodating.

Good bottom of the hill lunch location and we found the service to be excellent. Enjoyed the quesadilla but note that the shrimp appetizer is hot. Good on tap beers.

A great place to eat for lunch and have a beer. Excellent service and reasonable prices for Big Sky. The food is good. I like sushi and it was great. Not big but covers for about 50 in a really relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend.

The Carabiner is a comfortable bar with decent food. Great for a more upscale lunch during ski season than the cafeteria. Music some evenings. Wide selection of food choices, good bar, pleasant service. Nice environment with a good view.
