Located as part of the Sheraton, next to the convention center, it is just about 3 blocks from the casino boardwalk. You can park across the street for free for up to 4 hours as long as you are a customer at the tavern.
We went there on a Friday afternoon, so it was quiet. Got a nice shady seat outside. The patio is not fancy, but clean and comfortable. A bit off the main roadway near the outlets.
Inside was decent enough, large bar. The strong scent of boiling grains from the nearby kettles, though, was almost too much to take....making the patio a better bet on that day.
Beers on tap included a golden ale, pale ale, crimson red, stout and a witte. They had a Belgium Cru as well, but only in oversized bottles. A Farmhouse ale was listed, but not available.
We started with a sampler. The beers seemed to have a mildly skunky odor/flavor to them. Afterwards, though, I ordered a pint of the crimson red and it was fine. Actually pretty good. I think the sampler glasses might not have been cleaned well or something. Followed the red with a pint of their stout. Again, much better than what I tasted from the sampler. Smooth, velvety with a nice mild roasted flavor.
I don't recall if we had a dinner or lunch menu. Decent enough. Nothing too untypical of grub food, but there were some entrees. I had a turkey sandwich which was lean and good.
Overall, pretty good marks. Certainly worth seeking out. The casinos are loaded with macros selections, so, take a short walk and try some fresh micros.

Went here for my buddies bachelor party and my father told me that he and I have been there before but I never really remembered it.
We went there on a Saturday evening so the place was totally packed. Had live entertainment which was nice to listen to. The beer sampler was pretty good I really enjoyed the IPA.
I ordered the chicken tenders and they just give you 5 tenders w no fries for 9 bucks. The one guy got a philly cheese and it was loaded up. So just guessing what you order varies portion size.
Overall it was a really cool place and would like to go back on a week day and see if I would enjoy it with less of a crowd.

I almost skipped this place during my trip to ac due to some of the reviews i read on here. Sure glad I took the chance. first off a convention was in town and the place was absolutely packed, but we were seated within minutes. They even made a spot for our stroller to fit by the table. All the workers we came in contact with were very friendly, I ordered the all american ipa it was served quickly and ice cold. One of the most enjoyable brews ive had in a long while. The food was phenomenal ,we got some burgers they were served quickly,perfectly cooked and tasted delicious. worth every penny, and reasonably priced for atlantic city. got a growler of the ipa to take back to the room with us and enjoyed it in the jacuzzi. i got two brews, two pint glasses to take home ,two awesome burgers, a growler full of ipa and it cost me less than 60 bucks.

A bit out of the way, but a nice little walk from the boardwalk. Very clean and spacious inside and out. I was noticing all the military stuff and came to find out the the owner with in the service and did this after the fact. I really enjoyed the decor, especially the tanks above the bar. The bartender was very friendly, attentive, and knew her stuff. Had spinach and crab dip, a bit rich and filling, but really nice. The food all looked good, but a bit pricy, whereas the beer was decently priced. A cool place, and quite enjoyable.

As the only brewery/brewpub in the area for many miles, it would be nice if the Tun Tavern stepped up their game, but they seem pretty complacent. Atmosphere is pretty general and sportsbar-ish. They have a decent sized bar and a good amount of tables. The bartenders were friendly though maybe a bit distant. Their beer is all house-brewed, with a general spread of different styles. The beers are decent, but none are really distinctive or great. The food is decent...standard comfort foods mostly. Prices are a bit steep for what you get. You might be better off going to the casino for free drinks, and at least a chance to get your money back.
Save your receipt for free parking in the adjacent lot.

It may be an oxymoron, but this is definately a commercial brewpub aimed at the masses... The place has a natural buzz about it being situated so close to all the casinos, but other than that the decor and atmosphere are rather run of the mill though the open design is a definite plus... Service was textbook average... Six inhouse offerings which run the gamete from light lager to stout... The food was typical bar far with an even mix between salads / sandwiches and entrees... The prices seemed a bit high, but I guess not so much my tourist destination standards... Worth a vist if you're in the area, but not a destination in and of itself...

This brewpub is in the Sheraton Hotel where my wife and I are staying in Atlantic City. I've been there twice already, once for a meal and once just for drinks, and thought I should post my review.
The atmosphere is very similar to a chain restaurant/sports bar with a lot of televisions and a big open space with a very large bar. The brewing equipment is close to the ceiling or behind a wall all the way in the back of the restaurant. It's kind of dark in there which I usually like but there are also some neon blue lights for "atmosphere" which were kind of cheesy.
When we went to eat the food was pretty good but the service was mediocre. Nothing bad but we did wait for nearly twenty minutes before anyone came to greet us. Other than that it was average. The service at the bar was much better, although we did have to wait again for a little while before anyone acknowledged we were there. Once attended to the service was friendly and the bartenders made sure we had a drink in front of us.
They had about eight of their own beers on tap plus standard macros but I felt that many of the beers were a bit watered down and light bodied. I had the Oktoberfest which was pretty weak and the All American IPA and Leather-Neck Stout which were decent. I wish I had more time to sample the other beers but the bar closed. I'll probably go back tomorrow and sample some more.
I was pretty excited to find a place in AC that had good beer and am glad that I got to check this place out. Nothing too exciting but worth checking out if you're in the area. On a side note, there was a guy named James Klapp playing acoustic guitar, mostly covers of classic rock songs but every once in a while he threw in some nice indie stuff like Sufjan Stevens and Radiohead. I was drinking my IPA and was shocked when I heard the beginning of Bulletproof. Supposedly he performs there regularly and adds a bit to the atmosphere.

My wife and I patronized the Tun Tavern for the first and most definitely last time yesterday, and we were terribly disappointed both by the food and the beer.
We ordered their beer flight/sampler as we do at every brewpub we visit, and were disappointed to learn that they only give you five stingy 3oz samples even though they feature at least seven styles, so if your desire is to try all of their beer styles you need to order two samplers. I thought their beer styles were generally okay, but not good enough to bother going back for.
The food was also just okay. For dinner we ordered the Brew House Chili and the Colonial Chicken Club, both of which were okay; that is, they weren't bad but they also weren't good enough to merit their prices. For dessert we ordered a Granny's Warm Apple Cobbler, a Chocolate Decadence, and coffee. Except for the decent ice cream that came atop each dessert, the desserts were definitely sub-par. The coffee was okay.
The bill was a few dollars short of $50.00; at that price, mediocrity just doesn't cut it.
My advice is to steer clear.
