Once seated in the restaurant, your view changes as the seasons change. Winter brings eagles soaring as they search the icy Mississippi for the fresh catch of the day. In the Summer the river becomes alive with casual and commercial traffic. The historic background of this quaint river town is captured in the memorabilia and pictures that adorn the walls.The restaurant has been a landmark for two decades offering casual to formal dining attracting patrons both local and visiting tourist from other countries. We have a casual family friendly environment. Serving lunch and dinner as well as drinks at the bar. We are great for groups! Walk in or make a reservation and when the weather permits, choose to sit in side or out. Dine in, carry out or we will cater! Whatever the occasion - Big Muddy's is the place!!

Food is horrendous, it is very obvious they don't change their fryer grease daily. The buffets are all the leftovers from the week. The service is terrible. Great view, horrid resturant.

Muddy's does not have a good view of the river as the website suggests. The patio is off to the side. Rooms are large, crowded and have plastic tablecloths.

This is a fun restaurant and bar underneath the bridge crossing the Mississippi River. Good appetizers, sandwiches, and a great bar.
