Yummy Burgers

I loved the riverside, patio dining. The burgers were absolutely delicious. And we got a free, fun little popsicle dessert! They were doing some insanely loud construction on the inside, so patio dining was a must.

We enjoyed lunch here after our Segway excursion using the 25% discount coupons given us after the ride. Wonderful deck with colorful umbrellas. Good view of the river. Food and service very good. Loved the complimentary dessert--banana popsicles in strawberry puree!

Food was so-so. Fairly decent burgers, decent onion rings, fries very unremarkable. If I went back I think I would want to give the cheese curds a whirl if they truly are "state fair" style curds. Service was ok but nothing special. However, the biggest turnoff was that I had a discount card that I had handed to our server,... More

We stopped here to have a late lunch with friends since it was close to my friend's apartment. There were unique cocktails to order and lots of beers. We had two appetizers and our friend had burgers. The food was good and so was the service. Definitely a good place for american food near St. Anthony & Main.

We had lunch at Tugg's on the deck. Great view of the River and fun people watching. Food was good not exceptional. Service was good. A little pricey for what you got. I guess you pay up for downtown trendy locations.

Great place for beer on patio, that is if you last with your thirst for almost an1 hour. as they say"location, location", that is what for this place. Food average and service VERY slow, so the view will save this place

Simple bar on a lovely street. Free popcorn. Good beer selection. Friendly staff. Simple burgers, sandwiches and salad menu. We enjoyed the BBQ Pork sandwich. We chose because it is near the stone bridge/waterfall, so good things nearby. There was a concert in the block just down the street.

Went here after the Segway tour and it was great! Love their selection of beers and the hamburger I split with my husband was really good. I will be back!

The patio and the location are outstanding. On most summer nights, there should be room to sit outside - the inside is nothing to get too excited about. The food is standard bar fare - have had a number of burgers and sandwiches. Never had bad food, but it's also nothing special as far as quality taste. It's best to... More

THe fries were delicious as was our meal, the outdoor seating area is awesome on a nice evening! The waitstaff wasn't the greatest but it was 9pm so I'm sure they were over being there. Still had a great time regardless!
