Visited in June 2016, had a nice dinner with a fantastic view of the Minneapolis Skyline from across the river. Had hamburgers and a wide selection of beer with a full bar as well.

Boy was this place packed, however, the wait staff got right to us and the food was delicious. Huge basket of onion rings and great selection of local beer.

A good place to grab a burger and a beer. A bit on the pricey side, but for the location is probably about right. Try the manburger!

The inside wasn't much...a small dark tavern, but the outside deck on a summer evening watching the joggers go by was great. The burgers were top notch. Charcoal broiled just right and the taste was to die for. I had the bacon-stuffed burger and despite the 1/2lb weight I wanted another!

Went on the Historical Trail and stopped in for a drink to cool off. The deck is beautiful and the staff was very friendly. I highly recommend the banana split popsicle!! Only $.50 and 2 people can split :-)

The cheese curds were delicious! Being from Colorado, we had to try them! The burger I got was just "okay" nothing spectacular. They had a great beer menu to order from and eating outside was great!

Tugg's is one of those touristy bars in a touristy part of town that has lots of money and no soul behind it. The old and restored space on the river is pretty. The outside patio is pretty, but you can't smoke out there. Some friends and I stopped in for lunch on a Wednesday. The place was dead and... More

My wife and I stopped here on a walk along the Mississippi River with two nephews on a glorious 75 degree day in Minneapolis in April. We were attracted to the outdoor dining, and the burgers and fries sounded like an ideal menu for two teenage boys. The waitress had to tell us four times when we tried to order... More
