Will not be coming back, wait or forgot to put in our order and we waited forever for food. Mac n cheese was dry and bland, box Mac has more flavor. Burgers were just ok and were very dry. Drinks were watered down. Overwhelmingly disappointed.

I can't remember ever thinking I paid too little. We had their filet madallions ($21). I would have paid $35 for how great they were. Our server was ever attentive and showed genuine interest in us by asking questions about our time in town, sharing ideas about what to do, etc... Their House IPA is one of the best beers... More

We ate there on Thanksgiving day 2015, my wife ordered a filet and srimp, med well, she got it it was cold, cut in half, and very well done, I think it had been served and rejected by someone else, this is a disgrace to the manager to do that......

Had lunch with my son, was first time there, food plated well, food very good. More like a little up scale Bar and Girrl. Great place to gather with friends and spend time. Downtown and close to many things. Great area to be in Chattanooga.

It was my Birthday 11/18 and of all the choices of Good restaurants in Chattanooga I chose to go to Big River as I haven't been there in a while. Upon arrival I was immediately disappointed to find they had changed their menu. I decided on an overly expensive strip steak. There was no bread or salad served with the... More

Today while visiting the Big River Grill in downtown Chattanooga we had a terrible experience. 1. The music was so loud we and our friends could barely hear each other making conversation very difficult. We requested the server turn down the volume. She told us the sound was all controlled by corporate and they couldn't adjust it. She suggested we... More

We stopped in while on our way home from Pigeon Forge. I had the Italian pizza and she had the cheddar burger. Food was really good and came out quick.

I've been eating here since they opened and they are consistent. Good food, good service and a really good bar with some nice microbrews. The sweet magnolia is one of my favorites. The menu has a nice variety, so everyone's taste should be satisfied.

Thank Todd S
