The starter nachos were awesome! The beer flight was great and came with 9, 4 oz samples for only $6.50. We ordered the brisket pizza (which isn't really my thing) and it was pretty good, as well as the makers mark burger, which was excellent!...More

I've been to Big River several times and I have yet to be disappointed by them! The beer is just phenomenal and the food is large portion gourmet for affordable prices! I've had meat loaf, chicken, burgers, and everything is always superb!

We stopped here after relaxing at the river. Great way to end the night. My friend and I got the nachos, which were right on target and plenty to share.

We stopped here after walking around downtown and were pleasantly surprised. The pizza was really good. The Latin Caesar salad dressing was awesome.

I don't think so. They possibly have call ahead seating. However, we haven't ever waited to be seated more than 5 minutes but I guess it. Also depends on what time you go.
