Big River Brewery
So maybe most people wouldn't recommend a brew pub as a fun family restaurant. I will say that my family has visited the Big River Grille and Brewery in Chattanooga most times we've visited the town. Even when the kids were little, we've always enjoyed the place. Sue, Bob Beck, and I were taken there our first night in Chattanooga when we were considering the town for hosting SIGCSE 2009.
It's right across the street from the Aquarium, about a 10 minute walk from the conference hotels. As one of the on-line reviews says, "It's big. It's loud. It gives the place a lot of energy." There is a good selection of food for the whole family, ranging from the kids' ubiquitous chicken fingers, to some really fine ribs and carrot cake. And by the way, they serve good beer! It would be a great place to stop by after the reception, or when exploring the downtown and riverfront areas.
