Our family of four chose to done at Big River for lunch because it was located near the Walnut Bridge and Creative Discovery Museum. The menu had lots of choices, including the kids menu. The service was pretty good. The food was average. They had stroller parking inside and a changing table in the women's restrooms, which makes this a... More

We promised ourselves only local eateries on this trip. We liked this place so well we went two nights in a row. Amazing menu, from salads to a creative meatloaf, and the home brews are out of this world. Must go.

my fiancé and I recently dined here while on anniversary vacation. I had the classic burger, she had a ribeye. The burger was average, nothing special. The ribeye was good, however she ordered it medium rare, and the steak came out well done. Also we asked for A1 and were brought Heinz 57. The server was inattentive, and my tea... More

Our service was horrible. The server spent most of her time flirting with the cooks and sitting with her friends at a nearby table. The food was mediocre at best. The only positive in my book was the atmosphere.

Beer sampler was nice and we were treated to the normal 6 plus two of the their seasonal offerings. the October Fest was rather non-descript. the toasted oat was interesting, but I wouldn't want more than a couple. If you are a "miller light or mich ultra" drinker than you will enjoy "Southern Flyer, Big river Lager or Seven states... More

Walked to the Grille from the Hampton in roughly two blocks away. Neat area with plenty of local choices, but was intrigued by the good reviews and name. Decided to sit at the bar as I was alone, but like the rest of the place it was pretty full. Despite that, service was good, food was served hot, and overall... More

Ate here late one night... I was not expecting much due to the hour and the tourist location downtown near the aquarium. However, I was pleasantly surprised that warm bread was served prior to our meal. If you are looking for something filling but not fried, try the chicken Waldorf salad. Great combination of chicken, apples, cranberries and greens.

When we checked into our B&B, we were looking for some place with a wide menu. Big River Brewing Company was recommended. The first night we were in a bit of a hurry and ordered burgers. They were very nicely done and reasonably priced. Since this is a brew pub, I tried the Vienna Lager and the Octoberfest beers. Both... More

We were going to dine across the street at the Easy Bistro, but when we walked in the door, we felt so UN-Easy that we left. Black and white and stark is not our thing, so we went back across the street to the Big River where we'd enjoyed a beverage between visiting the two aquarium buildings. Good choice. We... More
