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.

I made a point to visit on my latest trip to AC. Wasn't disappointed! I filtered in with the lunchtime crowd and tried a sampler of six brews. They were served typically in the sample glasses with a place mat underneath giving all the information about each beer being served. The bartender was prompt and courteous even though she was serving the lunchtime rush. I will return again, this time with an appetite. The bar was a U-shaped with plenty of elbow room. There was a large dining area and the brewing equipment is showcased to the left as you enter. The restaurant was clean and well-lit. Plenty of parking and easily accesible, this is a nice alternative to the casinos.

Funny thing about beer and time, that whole meshing thing. See, I had Steve's bachelor party in Atlantic City on Saturday night, so I rolled into AC on Saturday late afternoon knowing that I'd need to have a beer at Tun Tavern, just one beer, one singular beer, just to get a peak at the place, see what they had going on. I had drank their IPA at this years' NJ Craft Brewers Festival at Waterloo Village and last year they brought that killer stout so I know the beer's all good. Yeah, so I rolled in for a beer, just one beer, one singular beer and here's that whole beer and time thing 'cause now it's dark out and my phone's ringing and they want to know if I'm in AC yet, and I'm thinkin' that my 4th beer should be the IPA but I'll make it quick. Early evening stealer, this "beer" as you call it, is...
It ain't a tavern. It ain't even remotely tavernish. It's a large off-triangular restaurant with a rectangular bar in the center at one end. They had 9 house beers and are sadly insulting their brewmaster by also pouring Heinekin, Bud & Coors Light. I started with the Leatherneck Stout (roasty, hoppy, chewy), moved to the Rock 'N Roggen (a pleasantly spicy, malty rye beer), then the Tunwit (an unfilitered Wit, nicely Corriander & Orange Peel), and then my "I gotta go" beer, the All American IPA (solid, hoppy, floral).
The beers are good, man. I tried to tell you. Service was not so good. I was all invisiblelike or something. What the hell? Interesting place. You can see the Fermenters up above on the second floor and there's a windowed perch where people are looking down at you from way up high, believed to be from the adjoining Sheraton Hotel. Curious. Certainly THE place to go have a few beers if you're in AC.

This is where it all began for me. After a visit to the NJ Brew Festival at Waterloo Village in 2000, and my being born again (at least as far as beer is concerned), I ventured to the Tun for my first brewpub visit.
I must confess that, at the time, I did not know a lot about beer and the many different styles. But I still knew good beer. The Porter was to die for, the Brown equally so. The IPA? I can still taste the hops. We had a tour of the brew room and excellent service from the staff as a whole. The selection was 6 or 7, I believe, and all were good. My buddy and I bought 4 growlers and brought them to his summer house in Wildwood. We drove back the next day (about 40 minutes each way) for a re-fill (and sampler) and even picked up more for to take home the following day. I guess when your a virgin (brewpub virgin, that is---though any type would certianly fit the bill) it's always better the first time (or perhaps just remembered that way). When we went back the following 2 summers, it was still very good, but it wasn't the same--It wasn't that fantasy visit I had when I lost my "virginity". Oh, the memories....

i spent a weekend with my family at the Sheraton, and after a while, I needed to alone time. I went downstairs, and to my pleasant surprise, the concierge told me about Tun Tavern. I took an elevator down and found this place. At first impression, it was loud, with tellies and people milling about. The majority of the place consisted of people eating, so I was able to find a seat at the bar. The bar was a mixed crowd: many hotel guests, business people, and some locals. The bartenders must have been rejects from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette tv shows; beautiful females and good looking dudes. One of the female hotties, after making small talk, offered me a taster on the house. Off the tap, Tun had some good choices: the Irish Red, the Devil Dog pale ale, and the Leatherneck stout. I didn't try this drink, but they had a drink that combined Woodchuck an d the Tun Light. Very interesting. I ended having four pints at this place (including the three I mentioned above), and I felt satisfied. I did not have the opportunity to try the food, but I could easily smell the chicken with grilled peppers and onions. The pub also has a small store at the entryway. I bought a pint glass and shot glass for under 10 dollars. The next time I go back to AC, i'll go with my friends instead, and I'll try all of the beers in their collection.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this place. Atmosphere is above average - similar to modern/chain brewpubs but very clean and bright. I was there in the afternoon for lunch and dinner/late-night is probably a little livelier.
Beer was good. I had the IPA which was solid and hit the spot. Nicely balanced with a good citrus bite. My gf had the Light Golden Ale w/ Apricot - refreshing and tasty. Selection was decent with a style on the menu for every taste.
Service was very good - the waitress was able to comment on the beers and recommended the Apricot version. She was friendly, attentive, and the food came out promptly.
The food was above average for a brewpub. I had the PhD (turkey sandwich) which was nice and fresh. Overall a very good brewpub. I'll be back whenever I hit up AC.

My wife and I went to A.C. for our first anniversary. We made a special little trip to the Tun tavern.When we first walked in we were very impressed with the size of the place and a very modern look to it. The bartender's there kind of reminded me of coyote ugly. I ordered a sampler which was very good.A Solid group of beer's. My favorite was the leatherneck stout until I had the Maibock. I ordered a pint of the Maibock served in a highball glass. Left a funny film on the palate though after a few sips. The prices were cheap for pint's at $4.50. A sampler of their 5 beer's were 5.50 for 4oz glasses. Service was very good and if I am in A.C. I will definetly come back.

This is my local brewpub and I get there as often as I can. Ted has come a long way after taking over for Mark Cohen several years ago who moved to Vegas to park cars. Mark was quite the character and loved by everyone. Ted came in after the not-so-friendly separation and took the heat, but stood up to it and has really come into his own. His beers get better all the time and Monty has allowed him to experiment more often with new styles. He presently has a Belgian in the fermenters which should be out soon. I love the IPA year around and his seasonals have hit the mark. His Freedom Ale barleywine comes out every 9/11 and is oak-aged with an outstanding oak and vanilla flavor at 11%. This one is worth a trip to AC alone!
The fairly modern decor gives it a not-so-much-a-tavern atmosphere, but it is comfortable. They are also going to be enclosing the outside deck for use year around, though part will remain open for the summer season.
They just promoted their sous chef to the executive position and we attended the Oktoberfest Dinner which was more than excellent.
I see good things for him in the future. The food is very good and the service is usually good, but can be spotty depending on business.
Most people don't realize that it is a short train trip away from Philadelphia. Just across the street from the station, you can enjoy the beers and food and hop right back on the train home!
When in AC, stop by and see Ted and enjoy what they have to offer. Get on the mailing list for their special events and dinners.

the tun tavern is certainly one of the best beer spots in atlantic city, though there is some room for improvement. seeing as it's connected to the sheraton at the convention center, the atmosphere can tend to get a bit too business traveler oriented at times, with the entire place potentially being filled with guys wearing their little convention name tags knocking back a brew or two at lunch. regardless, it's still a pretty low key place that doesn't seem to ever have any of that stupid party atmosphere type thing going, which is always nice. the quality of the brews is excellent, with all being in the above average/very good/excellent range. they usually have 7-8 different styles on tap, with a light, rye, pumpkin, pilsner, stout, pale ale, red ale and one or two others on during my last visit. sadly, coors light, heineken and corona are also offered. what the hell? the service can be hit or miss, though it's still mostly good looking guys and girls who know next to nothing about the beer. any food i've had has been excellent, with the burgers being particularly good. growlers are reasonably priced ($15 initial fill, $8 thereafter and something like buy 5 or 6 and the 6 or 7th is free...i can't remember). if you're in atlantic city, i'd definitely make a stop here.

Nice looking place inside with a huge seating area and a big, rectangular bar. Had their IPA and their Pale Ale, which were both crisp and tasty. My girlfriend got the American Wheat, which looked like apple cider (practically no carbonation) and tasted bland. The food was you average brewpub grub (sandwiches, expensive steaks). They had another 6 beers on tap which I didn't get to try. Great atmosphere and overall, as far as I know, the best place in the Atlantic City area to get a beer.
