What are the food options at Memphis riverfront park?

Headed to Tom Lee Park? You may want to go hungry.

When planning your trip, know that there are several dining options — offering everything from breakfast and lunch fare to snacks, coffee and mocktails.

Having elevated food experiences was a priority for the park designers and the Memphis River Parks Partnership, which manages Tom Lee Park.

“Tom Lee Park is a place to enjoy park life. We know that delicious food and great drinks are a key part of that experience so we have selected vendors who will bring elevated, affordable park fare to all visitors,” said Carol Coletta, president and CEO of the Memphis River Parks Partnership. “I can’t wait for Memphians to experience their offerings in the park.”

Customers wait to order at a Ben and Jerry’s food truck in the newly renovated Tom Lee Park shortly after it officially opened to the public in Downtown Memphis on Saturday, September 2, 2023.

Tom Lee Park underwent a $61 million overhaul and celebrated its reopening Sept. 2.

George Abbott, the partnership’s director of external affairs, said they wanted to make sure the food offerings were elevated above normal park fare like hot dogs and popcorn. An extensive search was conducted to find the perfect vendors who could fulfill the park’s needs of being open daily, as well as offer unique items.
