Overpriced - poor service - Soup was cols - Entre served on top of a bed of improperly cooked chicory that was so bitter it ruined the peppercorn sauce as well. Dessert was old and very dissapointing. \r

One of my favorite restaurants anywhere. Everything I have ever gotten there has been fantastic (their pasta dishes and calzone are particularly good, and the desserts are wonderful, also great wine list,) and the service is excellent. It's terribly expensive, but worth it for special events. Pleasant atmosphere with unfortunately bad acoustics -- if it is busy, it is loud.

I have had some really good food at this restaurant and some HORRIBLE ones. They are not very consistent. I would recommend their desserts however. Go some place else for dinner and then stop by Big River to get dessert to take home.

Big River is a great place to go out and eat in Corvallis. It is right on 1st ave on the river. Food is always good, and you get what you pay for. When people would ask me where to eat when I worked at the Hilton, I would send them here without a doubt. Calzones are to die for and changing specials are a treat. Great for special occasions and special "have your parents pick up the check" dining.

Pros: Calzone selection

Cons: Busy, not open Mondays

They have great calazone at Big River. That is usually what I order there. There other items tend to be a little more adventurous than I tend to like. If you go on a Friday or Saturday evening, be prepared for a wait and don't bother to call ahead as they don't take reservations.

PROS: Good calazone
CONS: Potentially long wait times on Friday and Saturday evenings

Where to go in a town you don't know? The answer in Corvallis is "Big River". Vary diverse, interesting menu with many interesting combinations of ingredients and probably the best "home baked" breads in Oregon.

The staff was attentive and knowledgable, the prices are great and although the crowd is large they keep things moving without giving you a feeling of being rushed.

I had the 1/2 Rueben sandwich with a small Caesar salad, the Rueben was worth of a Manhattan deli and the salad was crisp, flavorful and had thin, crispy croutons made from the previously mentioned best bread in the state.

If you're in Corvallis don't miss it for lunch or dinner. As a matter of fact if you're NOT in Corvallis, go there. You won't be disappointed.

Big River restaurant features selective, fresh, Northwest cuisine. The food is very good, exceptional breads and great desserts daily. Friendly atmosphere, good regional wines, live music in the bar. The service is excellent.
