Regardless of what you order, you can't go wrong with the restaurant! I've tried about everything on the menu and have never been displeased! Such a great atmosphere, as well. Get to Tugs for a great meal!

Fried Green Tomatoes

This is one of my favorites on the Tugs Proper menu. The pimento cheese and black eyed peas on top really make this dish delicious. This paired with a cosmopolitan makes for a great happy hour or lunch.

Fried Pickles

Visited the bar for afternoon drinks and a snack. The bartender Marvin was a delight and the food and drinks were great. Loved the space inside especially the art on the walls. Will definitely visit again.

Chicken Piccata

The chicken piccata is absolutely amazing. My only complaint is that it isn't on the lunch menu and that tends to be when I am able to make it in. It's definitely a 10/10.

Oh my gosh-heaven! The fish was cooked perfectly. Loved the aioli-can't wait to come back to Highlands to try this again!
