We stayed at the River Inn and ate at Tug's grill most evenings. The food was delicious and excellent value. Although the meals are mainly meat and fish based, vegetarians are catered for; I enjoyed a superb olive and feta cheese salad on our final night. The drinks' menu is also varied and happy hour between 3 p.m and 7... More

We arrived at our hotel, 'The River Inn' mid afternoon after a long drive from Nashville and wanting a drink, we were directed to 'Tugs', across the road. A very warm welcome from the barman, didn't get his name as he went off shift shortly afterwards, but he was affable and advised on the choice of beers and wines (I'm... More

My boyfriend and I went out to dinner at Tug's for the first time tonight. We both was told they was short on staff which we thought it was great that they told us up front. But I can not complain we had the best service by a waiter named Brian. He was great even though they were short staffed,... More

At any other time I would likely rate Tug's a little higher. We had lunch there before heading to the airport to fly back home. The place was packed for lunch which is a good sign normally. Our waitress was in training. Almost never a good thing. We placed our order and waited and waited and waited. Finally I got... More

Once in a blue moon, I get the hankering to visit Harbor Town- Memphis. I like to ride and look at landscaping and exterior decor to get inspiration. After awhile of riding around, we decided to get out and walk around. We just happened upon Tug's. The place has contemporary decor, with lots of windows and fully stocked bars and... More

I had an outstanding lunch at Tugs in Memphis. I ordered the fish and chips at the recommendation of my server Nicole. It was delicious. Nicole was kind and helpful, as well as being very knowledgeable about the menu. I will be going back.

If you had a long, tough day & still feel the need of going out for dinner this is the perfect place to go! Their burgers belong to the best in town, their choice of salads is excellent and their daily menu list always worth a look: Jambalaya, or German Wurstteller ... almost anything I picked from it turned out...

Food is very good, generous portions and pricing is also good! Happy hour everyday from 3-7pm gives deals on appetizers and some drinks. I will definitely return.

Today was our last day in Tennessee and we enjoyed every minute of it. From the riverboat to the posh River Inn hotel. What truly stood out was the welcoming atmosphere and deliciously different food at Tuggs bar and Grill. Hush puppies , key lime pie, and the wonder that is A1 sauce were wonderful discovers , but what truly... More
