Dinner at the Big River Grille

What does one cow, three chickens, a few potatoes and a generous amount of pasta and rice have in common? They graciously provided my family with a fabulous meal at the Big River Grille in downtown Chattanooga.  Well, I had a small portion of the cow and the other three family members probably only ate one of the chickens. Either way, the meal was delicious, and the service was better than adequate.

I had the mushroom-swiss burger ($10.50) with a side of delicious shoestring fries. To be honest, the burger was not as flavorful nor as large as I would have expected for the price, but it was very eatable. The rest of the family ordered the Chicken Parmesan ($13.99), a grilled chicken sandwich ($4.99, kids menu) and the chicken tenders ($4.99, kids menu). The Chicken Parmesan was definitely worth the money. With two pieces of chicken breast and a lavish portion of pasta, there was plenty to eat and extra to bring home.  It scored 8 out of 10 with my husband. The children’s meals were the perfect size for them. Both girls judged their meals to be 8 out of 10.

Our server was very enthusiastic about his job. We never ran out of drinks, and our food arrived hot and ready to eat. Although, we were a difficult bunch, he remained friendly throughout the entire meal.  It was one of those evenings when you do not need anything until the minute the server walks away. Then you spend the next few minutes trying to get his attention again. I am sure many of you have had that same experience.

We will definitely return to The Big River Grille again. The experience was enjoyable and the food was (for the most part) well worth the price.
