My wife and I drop in at least a couple times every week, and have been for years. I'm pretty hard to please, but the food and service are well above average. Lindsey is one of our favorite servers and we usually go out of our way to sit in her section.

My experience was very disappointing. Lindsey was so rude and I shared this with her. Food was cold,taste unpleasant. Needless to say I will never be back.

Came to Memphis to visit family from Alabama, we came to Tugs for lunch . Everything was amazing especially the service. Jenn was very attentive and personable. I own 2 restaurants so I know about service and she was one of the best servers I have ever had . Thank you for a great brunch

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
