We enjoyed our meal but weren't enthused with the in-house beer. Our server was great and the prices were reasonable.

There is a large group of friends that take a trip to Chattanooga every year. We always eat at Big River. This year there were 15 of us and every single one said their food was fantastic! I had the chicken with mashed potatoes. Oh my. Those mashed potatoes are amazing! Other popular choices were nachos, mac n cheese, and... More

The Laredo Burger is simply amazing - I've had it on three different occasions and it's always amazing! Perfectly cooked (medium) and topped with all my favorites. The onion rings are lightly battered, crispy and not greasy - hard too find. The dessert sampler was amazing! They give you more than a sample! :)

We were starving after traveling all day. The food came out fast. The Czechoslovakian Pilsener berr was wonderful! The service was quick and friendly. I do think they need to train the servers a little better. Ours did catch when one of our oders came out wrong. Playing pool was fun! overall enjoyable experience.

We were starving after traveling all day. Maybe that is why the food was amazing. We ordered the Mahi sandwich and the Avacado grilled Chicken sandwich. Both were very good. The service was quick and friendly. I do think they need to train the servers. How hard is it to tell them to serve the plate from the left or... More

I had the ribs and chicken. Chicken was standard and ribs a little dry but good flavor. Wife had the bacon mac and cheese and it was tremendous. Daughter had the house pizza and was very satisfied. The beer selection was excellent. The service was excellent as well.

I went to lunch here before the aquarium and absolutely LOVED IT!!! I had a Bacon Burger with a B-B-Q Jalapeño Ranch sauce and a side of Mac-n-cheese. I would get it again in a heart beat. The Sweet Magnolia beer is great as well, get a beer they brew and don't waste your money on a national beer!!!

Went on a family trip to Chattanooga and wanted to feed the kids before going to the aquarium. The Big River Grille and Brewing not only met the need, but exceeded it. The food was fresh and delicious, the service was excellent, and the ambiance delightful. All the kids finished their food, a rarity, so that also says a lot.... More

If you are looking for a fun place to have a meal, this is it. Warning, it is very loud. We didn't mind the noise much but the music could've been turned down a notch. Our server was very good. Got a big laugh out of her asking to see my ID since we were celebrating my 50th birthday! Oh,... More
