ADA Accessibility Notes


Big River Grille is one of the top restaurants in downtown Chattanooga. Opening in the early 1990s and located near the Tennessee Aquarium; this Brew Pub as the locals call it, is still going strong after 20 years. Located in old electric trolley barn on the National Register of Historic Places, this local place has great food and the visitors love it as much as the locals do. You'll find made from scratch American fare with a twist, like Grilled Meatloaf, Shrimp and Grits, huge salads, pasta dishes, fish tacos, and more. Check out the beer sampler for $6. You'll have a hard time deciding on what's your favorite with the award winning Iron Horse Stout, Magnolia, Seven States and many more.

Locally or Family Owned Business Notes

Originally opened in Chattanooga TN, only 3 other restaurants bear the name. One in Nashville, one in Orlando and a 2nd restaurant in Chattanooga off I-75.

Committed to using only the freshest and finest ingredients, our restaurants showcase a passion for food with seasonal menus, daily specials and frequent changes to the regular menu.

At Big River, we feature a variety of both Ales and Lagers, each having a character and richness. Big River brews beers that range in color from gold to auburn to brown and to black. The bottom line? Judge a beer based on taste, not color.

Pet Friendly Notes
