The spring off-season in Big Sky will leave most of the town quiet and shuttered while two new restaurants and a new retail location open in time for the summer season. Two employees of the former Half Moon Saloon have partnered up and will be opening a new joint, the Gallatin Riverhouse Grill, at the riverside location on Highway 191 south of Big Sky that had been empty for the past year. The Grill will be serving up "affordable barbeque and grill fare" and will be continuing the summer volleyball games and year-round concerts like the Half Moon did before.
Meanwhile, a new Mexican eatery, El Patrón Cocina y Cantina, will open in the Town Center location that formerly held Bluebird Café. The owner of Wild West Pizzeria in West Yellowstone is opening the new spot with a local partner and plans to utilize the drive-through window to sell drinks and quick eats for Town Center concertgoers.
The third business signing a new lease is Big Sky Landscaping, which will be opening a 30 by 50 foot greenhouse in the vacant lot across the street from Blue Moon Bakery along with a pocket park and a gardening retail store. In addition to selling plants and trees, the Big Sky Landscaping Garden Center will also offer night-time gardening classes once the space opens around Memorial Day.
