After a day of sight seeing we decided to try this restaurant. Arrived around 3pm and was able to find plenty of seating. We choose to sit in billiard area and was able to catch college football on several flat screens. The choices from the menu were broad. We ordered the sampler including cheese dip buffalo wings and southwestern rolls and my husband ordered the BBQ pizza. Everything was excellent! We enjoyed our visit, received exceptional service from Pete and would recommend dining there!!

We stopped in to Big River after a hard day of sightseeing. It is upscale for a bar with lots of families. The place is big and has a fun atmosphere. Bars on both ends with a big dinning room in the middle. 6 beers were on tap with an additional 4 seasonal brews - the sampler came with all 10. We were able to sample each one and make a selection for our dinner. The service was excellent, our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable and polite. The food was excellent. I asked for something spicy with a red sauce and the jambalaya fit the bill to a T. My wife enjoyed her smothered chicken as well. The location is great - right across the street from the aquarium in a redeveloped part of town near the river. Pricing was reasonable and Big River turned out to be a very relaxing, enjoyable experience.

We were with a good sized groups and the service was excellent. The food is very good with a wide selection. Liked the atmosphere - an old maintenance shop redone with thought and taste. Try their inhouse brew sampler.

This was our second stop at this location; both before or after visits to the aquarium. The location is convenient and has outdoor seating that is great for a fall day.

The beer here has always been good, as has the food. For our last visit the standout was actually the staff- service was wonderful and our waitress even chatted with us about the rock-climbing wall going up across the street.

Easy recommendation for this place for a great lunch.

I was recently travelling with friends and we spent an evening in Downtown Chattanooga. First let me say, the downtown area is great. It was a great area to walk around and there is a lot to see and do in downtown Chattanooga.

The Big River Grille is right in the middle of a very nice area of downtown. We went on a Friday evening about 6:30 PM. We had no trouble parking. The atmosphere was great. It is in what looks like an old downtown warehouse. It is a large place and is neatly decorated. We only waited a few minutes for a booth for four people.

Our waitress arrived promptly and was very friendly. The service was good. The macro-brews they make on site (about 6-7 to choose from) were outstanding. Excellent IPA. The food was very good. We got a fish taco appetizer that was delicious, and chips and con queso dip that was good. My wife and I split Shrimp & Grits and it was good and a nice portion. Our friend's split a fried fish dinner and they said it was very good.

The Big River Grille is a neat place with good food and beer in a fun downtown environment!
