Great food, large portions.

I have eaten at both Big River Grille locations in Chattanooga several times. This is the one located downtown just a short walk from the Tennessee Aquarium. Parking is available at meters, in the private lot next to the restaurant or across the street in the multi-deck parking garage. They will... read more

Called in late afternoon to sample the beers. Had a tasting tray of seven different beers, expertly described by our waitress who continued to provide information and conversation. Overseas visitors be aware, you need photo ID no matter your age. Wierd or what?

We enjoyed the burgers and brews at Big River Grille. My husband had the Tillamook Burger and I had the Maker's Mark Burger. We shared an order of onion rings and fries. Everything was very, very good. We also sampled a couple of their beers which was a nice way to top off a great meal. Our server was very... More

We walked a few blocks here after our morning aquarium visit. Don't eat snack bar when you can come here! Burger was one of the best I've ever had and their in house brews were awesome. Wait staff was friendly and accommodating.

Excellent food and location. The shrimp and grits were different but excellent. Great for kids as well. We had a coupon on the back of our IMAX ticket stub.

We have been going to the Big River Grill for the past three years. They always accommodate our large group and the food never disappoints. They have the best fish tacos and a great selection of beers. So two thumbs up for great eats and fabulous service.

Had dinner there. Were seated and waitress approached to take drink order. Quickly came back for order. We felt rushed and she had a attitude about her. Food was okay but not anything special. Service didn't help.

The beers are pretty good, but the food is just OK. With as many dining options available downtown, I would probably skip this one for dinner. However, it is a great place to go have a few beers with friends.
