The service was excellent and the food was amazing! This is the second time we have eaten there and it did not disappoint. Four hours later and we are still both stuffed and talking about how good it was and that we can't wait to eat there again.

Just looking for a quick bite after driving all day. Quick service, good beer and burgers. A little on the loud side but it is a bar. Would come back again.

Local brews, good service and good food. Kind of a local version of TGI Fridays, but not as frantic.

We walked down the street to this place as we had eaten here before on another trip. It was nice once again. They have their own brews, which are tasty. The waitress allowed us to taste some before making our choices. The food was good and typical brew pub grub. My wife liked her fish and chips, coasted with their... More

Had dinner here on Christmas Day and what a welcome treat. The food was terrific, the service excellent and the craft beer was outstanding. Its tough to know what you're going to get when you dine out on a holiday like Christmas, so this was a very welcome and tasty experience. There was no rush and we had a great... More

I like the beer and the burgers, fish and chips, and salads. (Ok it's my wife that likes the salads). It's half way to where my daughter and family live from where we live (Knoxville / Atlanta) so we can make a day trip visit. The young teens like the pool tables and we like the Tennessee Aquarium. Park once... More

Visited during a stop on our way to Florida, and found easily. The building and decor are nice and inviting, but beyond that it downhill. Walked in the door to a hostess stand, so waited to be sat. Finally someone came and said we could have sat ourselves. Ordered a mixed drink that tasted like 7-up, and our dinners were... More

We ate lunch here after the Aquarium. The food was very good and service was superb. You can sample the different brews before deciding on one you like. The atmosphere is good and very convenient to the Chattanooga Aquarium.

Been a few years since we've been to the Big River in Nashville so we tried this one. Lots of SW and Cajun inspired dishes on the menu and at least four specialty brews, had the saison and hoppy red ale . Don't remember these influences in Nashville, so it was a nice surprise. The el diabo pizza was quite... More
