You'll discover a friendly, inviting atmosphere the moment you step through our doors. A warm welcoming blaze in the stone hearth, big game trophies, and antique sporting gear hint at our beginnings as a hunting and fishing lodge. Opening in 1946, Buck's T-4 eventually grew into one of Southwest Montana's favorite roadhouses. Buck and Helen Knight opened the business with a philosophy of home-cooked food and genuine, friendly service. The Lazy T-4 brand became synonymous with friends, food and fun in the Gallatin Canyon. Mike Scholz purchased the lodge from the Knights in 1972, and kept that philosophy interwoven in his business as he expanded the property to become Buck's T-4 Lodge.
Good evening, and thank you for choosing to dine with us at Buck's T-4 in Big Sky. We have prepared an extensive menu to appeal to both the Montana traditionalist savoring wild game or char-grilled beef, as well as those preferring lighter cuisine. From our house-smoked meats to our own stocks and sauces to our homemade ice cream, we pride ourselves on using only the freshest ingredients available.
Our richly appointed guest rooms, furnished in a country decor, provide accommodations at affordable prices and make you feel right at home. We now offer all newly-remodeled guest rooms, and a spacious 2-bedroom, 2 bath hospitality suite. In addition, complimentary high-speed wireless internet access is now available throughout the Main Lodge and Restaurant buildings.
The real reason for a visit to Big Sky isn't the food, the music or even the outdoor activities... Mother Nature has provided Big Sky with something far more powerful than all of those combined. Big Sky has the type of beauty and serenity that most people only dream about. So, grab your skis, boots, poles and camera, and come enjoy all of the reasons why winter is Big Sky's time to shine.
While winter may be our time to shine, summer just may be Big Sky's best kept secret. The days are long, sunny and warm, the nights are cool, and filled with stars; crowds are non-existent and outdoor activities are endless. So, grab your hiking boots, fly rod, golf clubs and camera, and come enjoy all of the reasons why summer is Big Sky's best kept secret.
