Chattanooga's destination for food, drinks and good times!
For some fun-loving chillin’ and serious grillin’, an establishment on Cherokee Boulevard has been a destination of choice for the past 19 years: The Big Chill and Grill. Look for the front patio that seats around 90 guests, with four large red garage doors that are usually open in nice weather. The back patio has seating with a quieter ambience, and about 40 more tables fill in the interior of the restaurant.
To fortify your evening out, you can chow down on a burger, Philly cheesesteak sliders, or their daily specials, and if you’re feeling a little more peckish, try the filet mignon or shrimp stir-fry. The full menu is served until 2:30 a.m. each night, and a smaller menu is offered during weekday lunch hours, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Entrees run from $9 to $24.
For a tasteful Saturday or Sunday brunch, you can’t miss with the petite filet benedict, eggs benedict Florentine, or everybody’s favorite, shrimp and grits. During weekend brunch, enjoy their one-of-a-kind Bloody Mary bar from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., along with other drink specials.
In addition to culinary offerings, The Big Chill and Grill balances a nice array of drinks, including beer, liquor, and their famous frozen daiquiris, all at prices that’ll make you want to buy another round. Happy Hour runs 4 to 8 p.m. daily, in addition to numerous weekday drink specials: Sunday, $1.50 Miller Lite draft, 4 p.m. to close; Monday, $2 Corona, all night; Tuesday, $2 wine night, 4 to 10 p.m.; Wednesday, $1.50 domestic longnecks, 4 p.m. to close; and Thursday, $2 Corona, all night.
Something’s happening every night for your entertainment at this North Shore hotspot. On Fridays and Saturdays starting at 8 p.m., a live DJ brings on the Chill all evening long. For the best karaoke venue, the mike turns on at 9 p.m. on Tuesdays, hosted by B.C. Entertainment.
Monday and Thursday are service industry nights with special prices on drinks for everybody in the industry from 9 p.m. to closing time. Also on Thursdays, live team trivia is in the house with Nooga Nerds Trivia.
“We really take pride in the fact that we’re a place for everyone, of all types and ages,” says owner Scottie Bowman. “We’re a place where you can bring your family for a home-cooked meal, and then turn around and sing, dance, or play trivia with your friends. You could spend your entire night in one location and see everyone that you love.”
All the staff at The Big Chill try to emulate Scottie’s spirit and concern for every single one of their guests. “We want our restaurant to be the first place you think of for a date night, a night out with friends, or where you bring your out-of-town visitors,” says Bowman.
To find your chill, you don’t have to go far. The Big Chill supplies food, drink, and entertainment seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. at 103 Cherokee Blvd. Visit facebook.com/bigchillandgrill or bigchillandgrill.com, or call (423) 267-2445.
