    The gameday wings here are really good. And much bigger than what you get at Buffalo Wild Wings. Also, in 2013, Big River has NFL Sunday Ticket so you can watch your team and enjoy craft beer. 5 stars

    Sweet Magnolia Brown Ale is rich and well balanced. Would go well with any burgers on the list. Pilsner is a surprise hit, the Saaz hops spicy notes really comes through. If available, get the Gose!

    Had the flight, I really enjoyed all of the beers. My favorite is the Sweet Magnolia but the IPA and the Stout are really good as well. Terminal doesn't come close in terms of quality.

    Samples are free, the maibock lager is amazing. Great micro brew beer. Happy hour is ends at 6:30 so go early the deals are great!

    Pretzel appetizer was delicious - it is new to their menu. I loved the Mac-n-cheese, and my fiancé love the blackened mahi sandwich!

    Order the Maibock. Maybe two. It's the Spring seasonal, so get it while you can: with a rich caramel flavor, smooth drinkability, and BR's highest alcohol content, this is the perfect beer.

    Great food and beer! California Chicken sandwich is very good. If you like dark beer, get the Sweet Magnolia. Light beer? The Southern Flower is excellent!

    If you had exceptional service, let the manger know. Whoever treated you like a rockstar will receive a free meal! I was happy to know my server, Dacey, would be rewarded for a job well done!

    The lobster & shrimp enchiladas were fantastic. The blue corn tortillas​ were a wee bit tough, but there was no skimping on the lobster. Decent beer selection, but more lighter beers than dark.

    Maddie our server was awesome and on top of things. Apparently it's true that telling the manager your server is exceptional will get them a free meal, though she was sheepish to confirm this tip!

    James is a very helpful and knowledgeable bartender. The Shrimp and Grits and the Cajun Fish Tacos are both amazing dishes.

    If u go in at around 10, you'll be asked to seat yourself in the bar. After that, the servers seem to get pretty focused on cleaning up and your chances of being served drop to roughly zero.

    Ipa, then stout. The Octoberfest is also quite a good representation if the style, if you are into that

    Mixed greens does not equal 90% iceberg lettuce. This is why I rarely come here anymore. While I still like the beer, there are much better food choices in Chattanooga.
