The first thing I will say is the Oktoberfest beer was delicious. The food on the other hand was a big disappointment. Everything on the meatloaf plate was cold. The bison burger plate came without the listed french fries. The shrimp dish was served with unsalted pasta and was missing the balsamic vinegar in the sauce. The service was adequate.... More

Try a flight of all of their beer flavors, you can sit outdoors watching the world go by while enjoying their brews. We prefered their lager and oktoberfest beer.

I was way overdue for lunch and dying for a burger. Great IPA, lukewarm fries, fair burger with way too much bun. This restaurant seems like it's coasting on its location across from the visitor's center and not trying very hard.

The restaurant is conveniently located in downtown Chattanooga for out-of-town visitors. The Tennessee River and the Aquarium are only a block or two away. The restaurant has some outdoor seating, but is very large on the inside. The menu contains a wide variety of items. I had the "2am burger" (a burger and a hash brown patty covered by a... More

We wanted beer and Chiefs and we got both. A beer sampler went over well, as did our meals, which included pizza, burgers and nachos. We anticipated we might stay the whole game, which cost $9 for parking. The restaurant needs to offer a free dessert or discount to take the bite out of that and they would do better.

Checked in late to our hotel and was referred here by the concierge. We opted to sit at the bar where John was tending and so glad we did. We took his recommendation for their wood-fired pizza and it was outstanding! Great vibe here, low key, fresh quality ingredients. Awesome choice!

On a friend's suggestion, we had Lunch at the Big River Grille on Saturday afternoon. Its bar was full watching the Tennessee/ Alabama Game, but our server was efficient, personable and attentive. We sat on its outside patio, enjoying a beautiful Chattanooga afternoon, savoring a local brew. We were visiting Chattanooga, but will be sure and return, if we are... More

Went on recommendation but disappointed. Nachos good and beer was solid. Rib eye was poor cut, half fat. Friend had fish and chips that was soggy and in the end only half eaten. Waiter and staff was friendly and engaging. Won't be back.
