This restaurant is in Downtown Chattanooga. We had an appetizer, pizza and two of the craft brews. The food and beer was excellent. The presentation, taste and portions were great. The service was very efficient. This restaurant caters seamlessly to families, business people and couples. It was not only good food, but the atmosphere was warm, friendly and conducive to... More

While you are staying at the Chattanoogan take yourself on a 15 minute walk up Broad St and have a few drinks here. The place has some awesome microbrews, beautiful waitresses, great food, and some pretty good pool tables. There was a blend of all ages and it worked flawlessly.

Really quick seating with not even half of the restaurant occupied. The waitress did not and would not smile. It really seemed like a theme with all the employees. I ordered the Brew house chicken. The gravy is way to strong and salty. The green beans were extremely seasoned. The mashed potatoes I will gine a 3 out of 5... More

Everything about this place is just average. The atmosphere is just brick. The food was hit or miss on the different items we had. Egg rolls were good, mac and cheese wasn't and the burger had no flavor. It took 15 minutes to get drinks and they were not busy at all. Slow service throughout the meal. I wouldn't go... More

We were so excited to go to this restaurant in Chattanooga TN, we drove from Guntersville Al a very long drive ( 2 hours )!!! My husband ordered the filet mignon & we talk often about how him or myself DO NOT believe that it was actually a filet. We are BIG time steak eaters & I've NEVER seen nothing... More

We spent the day at the aquarium and decided to eat here. It was wonderful and we will definitely return on our next visit to Chattanooga. My husband and I both ordered Hawaiian chicken, my 3-year old had linguine with marinara sauce. Everything was great! Service was excellent.

I had the worst pizza ever at this place. I couldn't even eat it. The desert was very good though, which made it all better!

We needed to grab a quick bite for lunch and decided to try Big River Grille while we visited Chattanooga for a business meeting. We were seated immediately (in a booth -- YES!) and our server was great! Since it was lunch and we still had business to take care of, we didn't have any of the exhaustive list of... More
