Had dinner there

After visiting Bass Pro in the Pyramid and unable to wait for a table, we settled on Tugs, which is in Harbor Town. Neat little hidden gem.

Came just for drinks and the view. We had already eaten, but definitely will be back for the brunch items and other offerings. Waiter was friendly but was not as attentive to us as other customers, maybe because we only ordered drinks. We will come back

After a wonderful stay cation spring break week in downtown Memphis, we rode our bikes from the riverfront to Mud Island. We wanted to get a few drinks and a bite to eat somewhere, and we were delighted to find this place. We locked our bikes up, and eagerly strolled up to get a seat. We were ignored for what... More

Went to Tugs, not knowing what to expect. We found it to be a very nice, but casual place. The food was very good and the atmosphere excellent with a nice view of the Mississippi! We went back for lunch a few days later. We will be back!

Second trip from out of town to try to dine here. Both trips, when the manager,Drew, saw that we were a party of 8, he immediately said that our wait would be 1 1/2 hours, even though we could see empty adjacent tables. We walked next door to sister restaurant, Paulette's, and they had us seated in less than 15... More

Some friends and I ate here last night after the Harbortown 5K and I must admit I was impressed. I had the chicken quesadilla and it was pretty darn good. Not over priced at all, so it was perfect for that quick bite after a run.

Food is good and fairly priced, great atmosphere, friendly service, and a wonderful view of the river. It is a nice quiet area away from the hectic downtown atmosphere.
