Knowing nothing about Chattanooga, we arrived here upon the advice of the desk clerk at the Fairfield Inn where we were staying. Glad we did. We were seated promptly (it was a Wednesday evening) and found both the atmosphere and menu choices to our liking. My wife enjoyed the hazelnut-crusted chix and I devoured the BBQ/bacon cheeseburger. Both were delicious!... More

The menu had so many tasty (and freshly prepared) items to choose from that it was difficult to decide what to order. The wait staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. I would visit again the next time I'm in Chattanooga.

Our first visit to this restaurant was 6 months ago and while the food was slightly above average the beer was exceptional. On our most recent visit we got a taster flight of all the beers on tap we there was not one that we did not like...which is not an easy feat. Matthew was a wonderful waiter. He was... More

Had to wait 40 min @ 5:30 for a table because they were swarmed with prom couples. Nice setting , but large loud rooms. Our waitress was polite & attentive, service didn't lag even with all the prom people, and food was good (not fabulous). Shrimp & lobster tacos-good. Ribs -very good. I'd probably return when they weren't packed, but... More

This restaurant was recommended to a colleague and I while staying the night in town for business. We arrived on a Tuesday night about 6:30 PM. The place was packed and hopping. Great music, happy people, and great looking and smelling food wafted the air. We were seated immediately and were greeted by Lauren. She is a bundle of energy... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Chattanooga. With two locations, one downtown near the aquarium and one near Hamilton Place Mall, the largest mall in Tennessee, both are convenient to your fun locations. The good is outstanding, their micro-brewery is very good and it's just a fun place for lunch or dinner

My wife and I have been dining here since it opened many years ago. We can always expect good food at a reasonable cost. The craft beer is excellent and we can count on great service.

If you're looking for a place to eat close to the action downtown and near hotels, Big River Grille is a good spot. The menu is enormous. The atmosphere is casual and the food has always been "better than I expected." Ask the staff what's going on next door at Rhythm and Brews if you're up for some live music... More

Just stopped by for a flight this visit on a rainy day. Service was fast and friendly. Beer is still exceptional. Big River is a must stop for the beer enthusiast.
