Great view of the river as you enjoy bar food. Staff is very accommodating. Free popcorn is fun for the kids as they wait for their food. After you get done eating there is a movie theater down the street or take a walk down to the water or go across the bridge to watch the water flow. Not wheelchair... More

We stopped here for lunch after we finished the MSP Segway tour, which is just a few doors down from Tuggs. The entire area is very walker friendly & you could spend an entire afternoon in this area. My husband had the chicken strips, which were typical and I had the deli style ham & cheese, which was also typical.... More

We stopped in for a bite to eat on our nature walk and were very pleased with the food. They have garlic fries that are amazing. I ordered it thinking it would be a small basket but it was a full basket. The meals my wife and sister in law and brother in law had also were very good.

The burgers are great!! It's always a good time sitting out on the deck watching the people passing by on Main street. I really liked the banana popsicle sundae! What a sweet treat.

This place has a decent view of the river and drinks are not too pricey. We went here for late night drinks after a wedding so I am not sure about the food. They have towers of beer which is always fun for a group. They also have skee ball which is always fund and addicting.

We went to St Anthony Falls and came across this restaurant. The outside deck eating area was awesome with a beautiful view of the Mississippi River and the city. I ordered the Fish and Chips which was really good. Service was very good also. We will definitely be back.

We went to this place because they post a happy hour on minneapolis drinker. When we got there the server said it changed and they won't honor it. I asked to speak to the manager and she flat out told me that he wouldn't come out. Crazy, first time I heard that one. I asked her to try and we... More

Again, not a dining destination. In my opinion, nothing along the Riverfront is. But, when the fireworks are going over St. Anthony, this is an easy spot to grab a beer and see the show. Hit the beer tub girl because the bar is a cluster. $5 for a tall boy, tables are fairly easy to grab, you can see... More

Time to ignore Tuggs,,, We have a cousin from Latvia, Karlis, staying with us for a month. He's a lawyer with the Latvian government and is a little conservative. He speaks English well but, with a heavy accent. This weekend he thought he's like to wander by himself around downtown Minneapolis. About 2pm today, 6/22, he went to Tuggs. On... More

Gave the waitress my card before seeing my bill. Overcharged by more that $25. Asked for my own bill. Charged for both. Called. Ummmm. Nothing yet. No remedy. Thanks for the $100 fee for 3 burgers.
