We were at Big River Grille last month and enjoyed our first time there so much, that we went back a second time. We were seated in a nice booth, towards the back of the entrance, which was fairly quiet and non-smoky. I ordered fish and chips, which were delicious! Our servers were very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu... More

We've been here 4 times and I kept hoping each time that it would get better. The food isn't terrible but every time I leave I feel like we didn't quite get what we paid for. When the outdoor seating is open, people smoke out there and with the in and out, it smells like there's indoor smoking. I definitely... More

We have been Big River customers for years but our recent visit was very disappointing. The place needs a major renovation and upgrading. The booths are threadbare; the windows are dirty and full of children's fingerprints; there is a heavy coating of dust on the furniture. The beer is cold but the food is mediocre --a word of caution. The... More

We both had a pasta dish, mine was a smoked chicken pasta hers I don't remember but not the same as mine. To... More

We like to come here very often . Tried different things of the menu so far... never disappointed. Nice and funny staff. Beautiful outside space- hard to find elsewhere near that location. We especially like the burgers.

We visited on Saturday night and were seated in Savannah's section. She was incredible. We had the best experience with her! She was attentive, efficient, pleasant, she was just the best part of our visit. The food is incredible, too!! We actually went back the next day for lunch based on our experience with Savannah.

Me and my wife had burgers, she had the bison burger and I had the stuffed brisket burger. Both were excellent and well prepared. The servers were very attentive and made sure that our drinks were full. We also shared the brownie which had chocolate syrup and raspberry syrup. It was good but had a little bit too much raspberry... More

We had reserved a table for 7. When we arrived early, noticed they had open seating outside. We waited for table to become available, which happened quickly. Ordered drinks, appetizers and later our food. All came out great, waitress was quick and well versed in their menu. Have been here a few times and will def go back. Restrooms are... More

Drove by and realized they have craft beers from their own brewery, so we decided to stop and have a bite and a beer. The IPA is OUTSTANDING!!! I recommend trying the flight so you have a chance to taste them all, including their seasonal brew. Right now they're featuring Octoberfest beer and menu. The Octoberfest appetizer was fabulous and... More
