I have always enjoyed this place. They started the Southern Brewery Festival, which a great event in downtown Chattanooga. The beers are nice, but they are focused on making the Bud crowd happy. I enjoy the Iron Horse Stout especially. The pizzas are good. I like the outside dinning as you face the street and you can watch the world go by while enjoying the beer.

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 Iíd rate the lighter brews just average. Good IPA and Stout though. Would liked to have spent more time here...

Very nice patio seating that provided a good place to people watch. The BBQ Chicken pizza was outstanding, as was my wifeís southern chicken salad. Beers were well made if a bit boring, but service was good and overall a nice place.

I am basing this rating based on Noogfest 4.0, not a standard dining experience. This building is far nicer than the Nashville location. The modern dining ambiance also has the bar and pool table area separate, which is a nice touch. They also have streetside dining which is great for people watching. The food ranges from pub fare (pizzas, nachos, etc) to more pricey entrees like steak. I went with the pizza which was good. If you like a tame session beer that compliments your food, then I think their beers do a respectable job of that. The private back room for Noogfest was a nice touch and the server worked hard all night. The only thing he screwed up on was not getting names or credit cards for food orders, thus we had some people that forgot to pay the tab (and we all chipped in to cover it)

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 youíre in the area.

Great brewpub located downtown. Knowledgeable staff - able to point out medals that beers have won, characteristics of the beer etc. Have about 7 or 8 on tap at any one time - all above average for a brewpub. Food has been good all three times I have been there. Very crowded - which is a good thing for business - but bad if you want to eat in a hurry! Highly recommended.

Second time Iíve been here, and I think I enjoyed my first visit a bit more. On this occasion a cheerleading competition was in town (middle school and younger) so it was crowded and the servers were not a happy group. However, the staff did their best given the circumstances. Their beers are nothing special but they have a good selection. Their Vienna lager is ok and the brown ale and stout are also worth drinking. Nothing really stands out. Food is good (nachoís are huge!), and the atmosphere is nice enough. Worth a visit if your in the area.

Visit to Chattanooga for HOG National Rally. Second time I have been to Big River. Good location in downtown with parking and other attractions. Large bar and restuarant and was clean and service was fast and responsive for a busy crowd due to rally. Beer selection is corporate with seasonal brews. Sampler of brews was good with a printed serving sheet. Food was good and was above average for pub food. Well worth a visit.
