Milkies is the first bar I went to when I moved into town. Ever since that day it's been my favorite place to eat, drink and hang out. I skimmed over the reviews and didn't notice very many locals pitching in, but I have noticed some wads from out of town trying to give their expert opinion on the food and service. We get it, you travel, congratulations. This bar is for people who want to experience Big Sky if your passing through. Otherwise it is the locals hang out. Stop acting surprised that you didn't get good service. Ask yourself something. When you walked in the door, did the overall ambiance suggest that this was anything other than a locals bar? I mean, your pretty worldly so I expect you would have the ability to read a room.
Bottom line is that Milkies has great food. The atmosphere is a ski town bar. It gets loud and wild after 8 or 9. The staff is great and they will treat you well if you don't act like you own them. Get there early if you want to get a pizza and a cheese steak sandy(my personal favorite) if you are scared of ski bum shenanigans. Come in late and have fun with the homies. Milkies is one of the last great ski town bars. Chill out tourist foodie reviewer
