Big River is a favorite place to take potential employees and others for work-related meetings. The food is consistently good as is the service.

This is a decent restaurant that is a little more upscale. You’re not required to dress up formally, but they expect business casual attire at least. The food is good, just pricey and not the best choice for what is offered in Corvallis. The location...More

We had a birthday dinner for my son here. Service was slow and it seemed they didn’t care. Food was way overpriced and not very good. Maybe it was an off night, but it was not as good as I remembered from years ago.

I had two meals there: salad for dinner and Reuben sandwich for lunch. Both were delicious. The service was great and I like the decoration, too.

We had lunch at Big River after the eclipse! The sandwiches and salads are excellent. The dessert menu is extensive and well worth the calories. Service was very polite, but a bit slow at peak times.
