We had just driven from an 'iced in' Memphis and I was really looking for some comfort food. Seeing the Flame Grilled Meatloaf on the menu and a decent selection of craft beers...perfect. I was a bit disappointed that they were out of their stout however the Sweet Magnolia Brown was not bad. The portion of flame grilled meatloaf was... More

Within easy walking distance of the Tennessee Aquarium on Broad Street. The food is good and they have a good number of hand-crafted beers made right on the premises. If you want to get an idea of what they have to offer, order a beer sampler and you'll have a small glass of everything they are producing at the time,... More

Went there for business dinner. Good beer and had shrimp and grits. Tasty and plenty of since I got veggies on the side. Had the Pilsner and IPA for beer and all good. Good place to go for casual dinner.

The food was disappointing. It was plain and expensive and way less food than expected. The macaroni and cheese was dry and tasted like noodles with old cheese melted on top. Both orders were wrong after waiting longer than expected. I don't understand why there was a wait.

Everything we had was delicious and service was great! Atmosphere and menu options were outstanding. Will add to our "must go back" list.

While meeting local friends on a recent visit, we visited Big River. On recommendation, we tried the chicken bacon Mac-n-cheese. It was quite tasty & we would certainly order it again. We saved room & shared a salted caramel toffee dessert served in a Mason jar. We suggest that you save room for one of these tasty treats!

Whenever we have been caught needing a late dinner or have a lot of people in our party and need a diverse menu this is our go-to restaurant. We have hosted an office party there and were well pleased with the food and service. It isn't so "bar-like" that you can't have young children as well. We've been to luncheons... More

We used to meet there all the time for a club meeting. Manager promised us things to get our business and never came thru. Food was always mediocre at best.prices way to high for what you got. Parking is terrible. Not sure which location was worst but I think the Hamilton Place location was the worst of the bunch.

If you sit outside you will get to experience a lot about Chattanooga. I've ate there lots of times. Food and drinks has always been pretty good. The service has been 50/50 but worth going
