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.

Stopped for dinner before heading to a concert at Boardwalk Hall. This was a great place for a date. The food was great and you could talk to each other and have a nice conversation while enjoying dinner. Nice tasting the different types of beer.

Fun place. Very busy due to the convention center and boat show. Was still seated on time. I had the grilled chicken sandwich which was served on a pretzel type roll with avocado and tomato. Nice thick grilled chicken and not a patty. My wife had their veggie burger (option on the Turkey Burger menu). Another big meatless patty with avocado and tomato. Beer was good. Mine was the American IPA which was a bit cloudy and OK. My wife had the Crimson Ale which was very good. I would get that next time.

We had reservations but were told that they weren't honoring them. The hostess was very rude to my husband, our waitress was great. My husband told the waitress about how the hostess wouldn't honor the reservation and the manager immediately came over. She was very nice and explained how the hostess was incorrect and she would speak to her. She even offered us desserts to make up for the inconvenience. That is a great manager!!!

Food was excellent as was the service.....definitely will eat there again.

Our 44 y.o. son recommended the TUN. I didn't expect it to be a sports bar type place. He didn't specify. He just said it was a nice place to go to. Anyway, the management/wait staff made it special for a New Year's Eve dinner. Lindsay was an awesome waitress and her manager (don't know her name) was also very pleasant. When she came by to clear the table a bit I joked with her if she was allowed to do so and she replied, "absolutely". We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will certainly visit again. Thank you!

Stopped in for dinner before a show. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Free parking right across the street. The cocktails were very good. The food was good bar food. If you're looking for an upscale bar with good food, great service and convenient parking, then this is a good choice. Also had live music and, if you're a beer drinker, they have their own brewery!

Now I know why the place was empty. The wings were the only good part of the meal. My burger was terrible. Poor quality meat. Tasteless bacon. Soggy bun. Fries cold and under cooked. This place made a Tun of mistakes.
