Wonderful food -- our halibut and crab cakes were impeccably prepared, the soups were warm and delicious. A great wine, special dessert, and a single malt we had never tried before. Overall a very nice experience.

Corvallis does NOT have many fine dining restaurants. I consider big river a great fine dining spot. The food is always very well prepared and very tasty. The servers are what you'd expect from a fine dining establishment.

This restaurant used to be the place to be. Still is for so many people. Their happy hour is great. It was much better under the previous managements. With several other near by restaurants, Big River Still alright, BUT and you know the rest of the story

... great bread before dinner, great service. Reliable good quality. Adequate for price level, but not outstanding. Would go there again. Was unsure if I should give 3 or 4...

This placed was recommended to us by someone in a brewery. We went and we weren't disappointed. The staff is very friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. The small plates and dinner was good. The fish soup was tasty and hot. The beers were good too!! I would return if we are in the area again.

We go here nearly every year for someone's birthday in our family. We do this because the food tastes incredible and we wouldn't want to ruin the occasion. The staff here are just so kind and the food does not take much time to be made. The cakes here are in a wide variety and you can never go wrong... More

Big River is near and dear to our hearts! It has been a long time favorite! We visit it every time we are in the sweet college town of Corvallis, Oregon. The food is farm to fork, local, fresh and inventive. The ambience is lofty and yet comfortable in this reinvented warehouse in the Corvallis waterfront district. Enjoy!

Up-scale dinners. We go for the happy hour food - great little pizzas and salads. The dessert choices are many and yummy. A nice outdoor patio across from the river.
