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

Stopped for a few cold ones before going to the airport. We were surprised that a road separated Tugs from the River. Good humus and brews, outdoor searing available.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Tug's. Have always heard great things, but this was our first visit. We went with friends during happy hour (4-7pm daily) on Friday night. They have great appetizers at terrific prices. We each tried something different. The quesadilla's were great and enough for a meal, which is what I had! Their wine prices for happy... More

We had really good fish starters and mains, we had a cocktail pre dinner and the wine choice was good. Excellent friendly service, prompt and not fussy

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
