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.

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

We just had nachos and beverages here but enjoyed it. Casual place with locals coming in and out. Parking is easy and service was fine. Nothing remarkable about it but what we got was tasty.

I came here with a friend and ordered the fried chicken special. The breading was a hair too thick for my liking, and it seemed to be too brown (a little heavy on the fry). The dish also came with some extremely salty preserved vegetables that were inedible. I did not recall seeing this side dish on the menu -... More

Fun bar and restaurant to eat at on the island of Harbor Town in Memphis. Usually a busy little place but the service is pretty fast in my experience. (Have eaten here several times.)

Love going to Tugs. Not gourmet but menu offers something for everyone and good. If you enjoy sitting outside, they have a few tables outside and you can relax watching the Mississippi River since the restaurant sits right across the street from it. Harbor Town is quaint and quiet.
