This is a large place with a chain feel to it., lots of TVs everywhere. I sat at the bar, struggling to avoid screaming two year olds (at 10 o’clock at night), pretty much unsuccessfully. The beers were for the most part watery and plain. No flaws, just watery. One of the special IPAs was fairly decent. Server was making up so much stuff about beer in general that I had to write down some of his comments. The only redeeming thing here was that a flight of eight beers was five bucks. But, you get what you pay for. I think I’ll give up on Gordon Biersch.

The Big River Grille is in an interesting old building which was originally a stables, then a tram shed and then about 20 years ago it became a bar. There are three distinct sections - a formal bar, a dining area and an informal bar with pool tables. They also have two other enterprises - round the back is Rhythm and Blues, a music venue, and their seafood restaurant, the Bluewater Grille, is next door. They had six regular beers and some specials on when we visited and the ones we tried were quite good. (Visited 4 February 2014).

Saturday evening. Busy so they gave me a buzzer to alert me when I had a table. They said 30 minutes. 90 minutes later, no buzz, so I turned in my buzzer and left. The beer was only mediocre anyway. Stay away unless Bud Light is your idea of a tasty brew.

Pretty typical family-dining oriented brewpub with a spacious interior, decent beers, and average service. Awesome location downtown walking distance from a couple other craft beers spots and the downtown attractions. A flight of 7 beers was only $6. Worth stopping in if you’re in the area.

I love this place !!! I wish i could move in. It would be the coolest apartment in downtown Chattanooga. Great house beers always on tap as well as seasonal. Food, well I never left there still felling hungry. A lots of choices, stakes, fish, chicken, burger and sandwiches and MUCH more !!! All ready looking forward to my next trip.

Visted the pub enroute to FL in 2010. Cool place operall. Big building, lots of seating. Nice bar area. Wide food selection. We had great service! Tried the flight of samples--most good. I favor the darks so I’d rate the lighter brews just average. Good IPA and Stout though. Would liked to have spent more time here...

Nice big place with friendly people and a great menu. I would not travel far to get there but if your staying in town it’s a good place to go. The only beer they have is Big River brand. Service was great. Go and enjoy!

Didn’t eat, but the mainly looked like standard chain restaurant fare. The service was solid, the feel was like Applebee’s, the beer was all mediocre but a great deal for the sampler.
