One the very best restaurants in Corvallis. Their offerings are unparelleled. Wonderful place for that special occasion.

We spent the evening with our friends celebrating both of our daughters birthdays at Big River. The food and atmosphere are great, a little expensive but worth the trip from Lebanon.
