Came for lunch and the menu offers plenty of options. We had Waldorf salad and avocado and chip appetizer. Big sale and all good food. Server Sam very pleasant and checked on us often. Outdoor seating was nice.

Arrived after a long drive, close to 9PM. Waitress told us they were out of 2 of their mainstay beers. Never mentioned they had other beers not on the menu (I asked when ordered a 2nd beer). Beers were ok, nothing exceptional. Ordered a chicken dish and a burger. Chicken dish was very good. Burger was good, fries were not... More

Food was excellent. Had the shrimp and grits. Husband had beer battered fish and chips. Both tasted great. Service was lacking. Waitress never refilled our drinks and table was filthy when we sat down. Had to ask her to clean it☹️

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.
