Food was great! I had the Chicken, Bacon, Mac 'n Cheese and it was delicious. Had some issues with the service though. Was in a group of 30 people, and unfortunately for the staff they had anorher 1 or 2 large groups that same night. Food was not hitting the table around the same time and had confusion with drinks...

Was told by a local to try Big River. Everything was flavorful even the peach tea which was made with a peach purée. Wife order fish and steak street tacos I ordered the Chipotle brisket barbacoa. I would recommend Big River as well if you are visiting The aquarium area of Chattanooga.

I can't say enough about the food here. It was some of the best we had on this trip. Probably the best chicken sandwich I have ever eaten. The tacos are to die for as well. Service is great and quick. We had a late lunch and even though it was crowed we did not have a wait. They offer... More

We chose to visit Big River while our brother was doing the Ironman. We came for drinks while we waited for him to near a checkpoint so we could go cheer. We started with a flight sampler. 8- 4 Oz tasters, almost all of there beers. Great value too... you get 32 Oz of beer for the price of 16... More

The second appetizer we chose was good as far as the pretzels went the cheese was ok but don't expect a beer cheese and dont expect a lot of spice from the jalapeño cheese dip. Couldn't get the first appetizer we ordered because they were out. The waitress informed this happens and they dont know until they place the customers... More

We had read several reviews about the good food at "Big River Grille". Frankly most of them, must have been written by the owner's relatives or close friends. Because, this was one of the weakest "food quality" dining experiences I can remember. The $10.50 "Artichoke & Crab" dip was effectively only milky mayonnaise. It was terrible, with virtually no artichoke... More
