A beautiful place to stop in for a cold beer and good food. Family friendly restaurant with a nice menu of items. Don't miss the Sunday Brunch, best in town.

The steak sandwich was delicious. The meat was flavorful and prepared perfectly, and the portion size filled me up. They definitely don't skimp on the meat.

Once seated in the restaurant, your view changes as the seasons change. Winter brings eagles soaring as they search the icy Mississippi for the fresh catch of the day. In the Summer the river becomes alive with casual and commercial traffic. The historic background of this quaint river town is captured in the memorabilia and pictures that adorn the walls.The restaurant has been a landmark for two decades offering casual to formal dining attracting patrons both local and visiting tourist from other countries. We have a casual family friendly environment. Serving lunch and dinner as well as drinks at the bar. We are great for groups! Walk in or make a reservation and when the weather permits, choose to sit in side or out. Dine in, carry out or we will cater! Whatever the occasion - Big Muddy's is the place!!
