Nice place, loved the outdoor patio.

We enjoyed our afternoon meal at Big River Grille. It was great to sit outside and people watch on a beautiful afternoon in Chattanooga. Decent beer selection, although they desperately need a Double IPA. Food was above average. Waldorf and Caesar salads were great. Service was friendly and... read more

We're residents of Chattanooga and visit Big River fairly often. If you are local, join the " Passport rewards" Club. It helps with reservations and seating and you get points towards a free meal.

The food was okay but not spectacular. The service was very good so no complaints there. The restaurant seemed a little bit dirty. There were dirty utensils on the floor in the kitchen and some of the carpets were disgusting. Overall though it was a satisfying experience and I might go back again.

Stopped in for a flight of beer and enjoyed some appetizers too. The southwest egg rolls and buffalo wings were great. Couple of beers my favorite Vienna style and Maibock. Bar staff are friendly great place for happy hour.

We were wandering around the downtown area on a Sunday night and decided to have dinner while we were there. Was looking for a place with local flavor and not a chain restaurant. The atmosphere was elegant and a little upscale, although we were dressed casually and that was OK. Service was fine. I had the glazed salmon with sides... More

We stopped @ Big River Grille & Brewing for a late lunch. It was hot and we were seated inside. Our waitress was Caitlin, she was terrific! Since we had a huge breakfast at our B&B, we decided to get a 16 ounce cold draft beer ($4.25 each) and appetizers instead of a full lunch. I suggested getting one appetizer... More

Ok, may be a little picky regarding the vinegar based bbq sauce but it was the first time we had actually tried the wings in Tennessee. I know the locals are split down the middle on type of sauce, guess we fall in with the sweeter variety lovers. The egg rolls on the starter were very good. Main courses were... More

My boyfriend and I travelled to Chattanooga for a concert at Track29, but we had a little time to kill beforehand. So, we decided to backtrack an exit and see what restaurants we could find. On a whim, we ended up at Big River Grille & Brewing and we were so glad we did! He ordered the New York Strip... More
