My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Paulette's and after dinner came to Tug's for a few drinks. Atmosphere was fun and everyone was so nice! The next day I ordered lunch. Best gumbo I have ever had!! The Tug's spring salad with grilled chicken was really good!

My dad got the tilapia and shrimp and I got the loaded fries. Both very delicious. The server was awesome, quick, and friendly. I think her name was Lindsey.

I left a review after eating a family Thanksgiving meal at River Hall (meal prepared by Tugs). The manager, Kerry Smith, called me within a couple of days after the review posted. He listened to all of my concerns about the food and wait staff. He promised to look into what went wrong and correct the issues. I have since... More

It was late after checking in to the River Inn Christmas night, hungry so slipped across to Tugs, sat at the bar. The server was most professional and accommodating, pretty and sweet. Food was quite tasting, good local beer selection. Very nice atmosphere.

Went to tugs with a group of 8. Seating was comfortable, not crowded. All good items were really good, lots of positive comments. We had fish and chips, salmon, steak sandwiches, creole tilapia and all were good, as were spring rolls and spinach dip appetizers. Desserts were just ok and fairly expensive, would probably skip them next time. For groups... More

We arrived in time for a happy hour drink so that was a good thing. Friendly greeters and staff for the most part. Friends had recommended this place and it wasn't too far from our hotel. I had the Harbor Town Shrimp salad which includes grilled shrimp. I guess I should have asked how many and how big. Hmmm...four tiny... More

My family of 6 went to River Hall Inn (meal cooked by chef at Tugs) for Thanksgiving dinner. This has to be the worst meal I have ever eaten. The meal has been good in the past. I don't know what happened this year. The only thing that was decent was the prime rib. The turkey was dry, the dressing... More

One of the best steaks I've had in the states so far, although I like it well done it was still full of juices and tasted great. Sat near the window with views of the Mississippi. Service was really good and didn't have to wait long for food to arrive. Definitely recommend a visit if your in memphis.

I first visited Tug's a couple years ago for downtown dining week and have been enjoying it every since! I always visit during downtown dining week in November and I enjoy visiting during warmer months and sitting on the small patio in the front of the restaurant overlooking the river. There are always nice-sized portions, good food, good service, and... More
