On a recent trip to Minneapolis we stopped here for drinks and lunch. It has a GREAT patio for lounging and taking in the views of the Minneapolis skyline. The burgers are super tasty and the fries and really good too. If you're just looking for a place to hang out for a while, this place is perfect. Our waitress was extremely nice, but once it started to get really busy she kinda forgot about us. But overall it was a good experience.

We come here a few times a year during the summer. Their patio is a great spot to watch fireworks, but you need to get there early because it is packed!!

Food was typical bar food, average burgers similar to those found elsewhere. Prices were high and wait staff pretty much ignored us for the most part.

My wife and I stopped here while walking the St. Anthony Falls Heritage Trail for her Birthday. I believe we were one of two parties in the entire restaurant. Making the service better that I thought it was going to be. The food took a little longer than I had expected but it was really good. Fries are not included in their meals but the extra dollar for them was worth it, they were super good. The food is tavern food, making it not the best choice for a mid-walk meal. Food was great, service was good and overall it was a great Birthday lunch for my wife.

Our family enjoyed an excellent late lunch on the deck at Tugg's after taking the Magical History (Segway) Tour nearby. The sandwiches and salads we ordered were excellent - we highly recommend the stuffed and regular burgers. Our server was friendly, efficient and helpful.

The street in front of Tugg's is lightly traveled, but there is great people watching opportunities as many take the opportunity to sight-see or exercise along the river. There's a good view of the river and there's plenty of shade that makes a long lunch on the deck very enjoyable. We'll stop at Tugg's when we're in the area again!
