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

Went here for dinner one night with a group after a work conference in Chattanooga. They have several distinct beer since it's a brewery and the food was really good we all got appetizers and split them the portions were huge and the service was great.

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

New in town and looking for something a little different for lunch but burger, pizza, and beer ended up filling the bill. Everything a good brew pub should be: tasty burger combinations, a really fine veggie pizza, and an excellent Amber brew.

Went for a quick lunch while in town for a conference. Fantastic chicken nachos (an appetizer but HUGE!) Some of the best fish and chips I've had, onion rings are incredible!!

A colleague and I were on business in town and shared a full portion nachos and then each had a ribeye steak, all food was great tasting and big portions and the waiter was very good. Highly recommended their house IPA beer as well!

We stopped in for a beer while we were in town. I got the beer of the day which was Blood Orange cream ale. Absolutely the best craft beer I've ever tasted. Great patio and service. Will definitely return when we are in Chatty again.

Welcoming staff and a nice meal. Pay in cash if you don't like your credit card going out of your sight as they take it away up to the bar and then bring a receipt to the table. Fairly noisy with a game of football on the TV but all adds to the atmosphere I suppose .Good for families and... More

The hostess and wait staff were all filled with Southern friendliness and had a great sense of humor.. The restaurant was clean and comfortable with a large menu. The local beer selection was good. My husband had grilled meatloaf (beef/pork) with au jus, fries, fruit bowl. The parts of the meat loaf that weren't overdone/dry/hard were good, especially when dipped... More
