The only beer I tried is the stout and it was pretty good. Chicken Parm was good. One of us ordered a burger well done (not something I would do) and it was still pretty pink. Don't book here on Opentable. We did and still had a little bit of a wait. The hostess said it doesn't update in real... More

What else can I say? I hesitated to go here, as I know it's part of a chain, albeit local. The menu is pretty vast - from pizzas to hamburgers to seafood. We had the shrimp appetizer (fried with sauce) which was pretty good, but I'm a bang-bang snob. Two of us had the lobster-shrimp enchiladas, and I've had much... More

As micro breweries go, this was a good one. Their menu is pretty minimal but the items we ordered there were very good. We dined here a couple of times on our recent trip and enjoyed their in house brews very much. A great place to drop in when down at the river front in Chattanooga. Try their burgers and... More

Really liked the set up and atmosphere--historic feel not super crowded. Food was amazing especially for this price point--many interesting twists on some of the standard pub type fare with quite a bit unique to them. We needed some time just to go through the menu. Staff was knowledgable and fast.

Never been here before. I liked it. Menu was diverse and had a southern flare to it. The in house beers were awesome. From light to dark. Decoration was cool kinda rustic kinda industrial.

Looked like a nice place so we stopped by for a couple drinks and appetizers. Beer was nice and cold. Waitress was terrific. Appetizers were really bad. I didn't think it was possible to make bad chicken nachos or quesadilla but they figured it out. It is a very popular place so I would bet their other stuff is really... More

While in Chattanooga for a concert we went to Big River for a "snack" ended up eating a full lunch. After the concert we decided to go back for a late night snack and once again ended up eating a full meal. The nachos appetizer was good. The brisket hamburger was delicious. The beer was cold.

From start to finish a simply amazing restaurant and bar. Service was top of the line and the food was great. My fiance, our two friends and i went there for dinner before going to the Elton John Concert last night Saturday March 12th, 2016 and even though we had to wait for 45mins. The wait was well worth it.... More

My waitress suggested the hazelnut chicken. Not great. My husband got fish tacos which she said they were known for and he didn't love them. We waited 1 1/2 hours. Would not recommend from our one experience.

It was an awesome lunch. We were there for a girls weekend. The food was awesome and the service was too. Our server Sean was super nice and answered all our questions. It will definitely be a revisit in the future. Was going to take pictures of the food but we dug right in.
