Big River has been our go to place for a nice meal since they first opened. Since the new owners took over the quality of the food dropped only a little but the prices soared! Entrees are now $27-45. Cocktails are $10-13. The service was...More

Quiet on a Sunday night. Nice beer choices. Wide range of food. Service was pretty good. Stuffed pork loin was very good.

The menu is pretty generic. The food is adequate. The prices relative to quality of the food are a bit high. Some nice desserts.

Ate here when we couldn't get into the restaurant we wanted. The room was pleasant and the wait staff excellent. She warned me the salad was entree-sized and generously portioned, no exaggeration. Everything, from the pizza and calzone to the salads and pastas, were gigantic....More
