Food was very good, service was fine. Good value for the money. Good selection of home brewed beer but they also offered bottled and tap domestic/imported beers. Would definitely good back.

It took over two hours to get a few salads and a sandwich. Our waiter was fun and worked hard but the wait for food was not worth it. It was so dark you could not see anything. We were expecting a manager to stop by but that never happened.

I had to rate this restaurant very low based on 105 MINUTE wait to be served. Our reservation was not during a peak time for dinner. I booked a table on line for 7 people at 9:30pm with guests that we had never had dinner with and we were seated immediately. The restaurant was not packed and we watched the musician play and close down his shift. We ordered 4 SALAD's Ribs and 2 sandwiches... no major entree's The waiter did everything possible to try to make the best of a horrible service delivery. The food did not come out until after 11pm on a 9:30 reservation. We were not even visited by the manager to address concern of the delay. This certainly was not the customer experience that we expected or nor should it be the customer experience that the restaurant wants to stand behind. Very Disappointed.

Food was great! We had the crab cakes and the ribs. Music was really loud. We actually wanted the entertainment to take a break. Oh and the ice had “something” black frozen in it, so I requested water with no ice. Given the choice we would not eat here again.

We were in town for a conference. We were not familiar with the area, but the Tun Tavern was near by. We were pleasantly surprised by the service and the food. Our Waitress, Mia, was more than accommodating. We would definitely go back again when in the area. PS - the chocolate bread pudding was worth the trip!

Good sports bar with an excellent team. Turn tavern Was originally in Philadelphia. That’s where the Marine Corps first started recruiting arrange to support the continental navy. That’s a memorabilia and hand crafted beers

We had a reservation for 4:00. We were not seated until 4:25. The hostess bought us our ice tea, forgot about my glass of wine. I had to flag down a waiter to take our order. This was at 4:45. We would have been there a lot longer if I hadn’t done this. Food was good.

The atmosphere was great. The food was not good. I had the scallops. They were over cooked, under seasoned, grittier than normal and the foot was still attached. The rice was over cooked and mushy. I did not try anything else. My boyfriend ordered a steak medium rare and it came back medium.

Our server did not charge us for the scallops, but let us sit for a long time after she cleared our table and before bringing the check.

Cliff the waiter was great. This restaurant is lacking in alot of ways. First we had a reservation and waited at the hostess desk for 10 minutes. I went up to them and asked was I in the right spot. Despite having many open tables was told it would be a while before we could seat. I explained I have a reservation. Then Danielle said Oh. After coming to the hostess desk offered to take us despite there 2 people in front and 6 behind me. After finally getting seated and meeting our awesome waiter. They were truly understaffed for a holiday week and weekend that also had a kids convention and rv convention. Michelle was helping to run the kitchen. She was completely unsanitary. Throwing the papers for the orders on top of the food. I've seen numerous restaurants the ticket goes under the plate. Why would you put dirty ink on food. Dario was helping in the kitchen he was worse than all of them. He licked his fingers while cooking. He picked up chips off the floor. Never washed his hands and kept cooking and plating food. He had no head covering and kept wiping his face while cooking, he ate while playing and repeatedly carried trash and other things never once washing his hands. Gloves are unheard of in this place. After the extensively long wait the crab fries were the only good thing. Parmesan wings you really have no clue what good ones should be. My husband's burger wasnt mediocre. This place has a nice atmosphere but lacks anything that would make us return. Even when seated we didn't know to follow the hostess. The waiters and waitresses were really doing the best they could. I loved Cliff.

booked reservation because I had a group of 10. Table was given to another group then they tried to sit us at two different tables. Half the food came out wrong. I ordered Fish and Chips. Fish looked like it came out of a frozen food box. Very small portion

We stopped for dinner before a show. The server was wonderful and very attentive. The cream of crab soup was excellent. The scallops and rice was very good, as was the shrimp and pasta. The wine list was more than adequate the the cocktail was perfectly prepared. Our only concern was the scallops were a little salty, but was acceptable after mixing is some rice. I would recommend. I really want to try the burgers and sandwiches. I think they may be a little more in their wheelhouse. Bottom line: I would recommend, especially if you are a beer drinker. They brew their own there.

Trouble with the TVs, multiple games. Ultimately resolved, but user error with the cable receivers at the bar was a drag. Unique beer selection. No complaints around pub fare foods. Clean establishment.

Food was very good, and the service was excellent. The fact Tun Tavern is a brew pub, with an excellent selection of Tun tavern beer was the primary reason for the visit. We will look forward to returning in the future.

Food was ok. Nothing stood out except that the fried calamari was AWFUL!! Worst I've ever had and we order at pretty much everywhere we go. It was barely edible. Service was good. The place was EMPTY for a Memorial Day weekend. Passion fruit mango mojito was GREAT as were the fried brussel sprouts.

The food and beer at Tun Tavern were fantastic... once we got them. We (party of 5) were there on a busy Friday night, but we had made a reservation weeks in advance. However, they had lost the reservation, and we had to wait almost half-an-hour for a table. Once seated, beer service was quick but an order of two appetizers took a very long time. After eating those, we had other plans and had to leave - a round of beers and two appetizers had taken us 2 hours!

I really liked what we ate and drank but would only recommend going here during off-peak hours. Even if you have a reservation and get seated, expect to wait a long time for orders.
