Walking distance from most in town attractions. A good place to take the family.

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.

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.

Very nice patio seating that provided a good place to people watch. The BBQ Chicken pizza was outstanding, as was my wife’s 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)

I would rather go home than go to Big River. I rarely find anything good about their beers at all and unfortunately, it’s been the only brewery in town for quite a while. Unless you’re looking for the young professional crowd you’d be best to stop off somewhere else (that’s why it has earned the name Yuppie River). The food is decent enough but doesn’t redeem the ho-hum beers they offer.

Um, well, what can I say? Meeting up with Shaggy/Clash (Matt) was about the highlight in this somewhat beer-deprived city. I guess this is about the best they’ve got going, so if you’re in Choo Choo city, make a stop. Just don’t expect good beer: pretty bland, sweet if anything, a little underattenuated too. The place was pretty dark restaurant and bar-side.

This is a very large brewpub/restaurant with an excellent downtown location. They have cool old timey decor, several pool tables, and it’s fairly family-friendly.. bit smoky at times, though. They usually have 6 or 7 beers that should be available, and they’re out of a couple of ’em.. decent stuff, but I haven’t had anything really good there. Service is hit or miss, and I really enjoy the food. This is a good hangout in Chattanooga.

Cool ambiance but the service is spotty. Great beers which is the reason to go. Ironhorse is a great stout. Food is really good, just went to a Christmas party there. Salads actually rock.

I used to go here when I was single and drank liquor only...I’d buy one drink, snob all the bitches and golddiggers who thought they were fine, and step right the fuck out....P.S.~ Their pool tables and cues are low quality...unacceptable to a real player.

Nice looking place. Food was really good, and the beers are also quality. The service was crappy the times I’d gone there, but everything else was fine. A little more expensive than I’d like, but since this is the only place in Chattanooga, what are you gonna do? At least it’s good stuff.
