Tun Tavern is a historical restaurant and brewery and an unquestioned favorite for visitors and locals alike in Atlantic City. As it had been in Philadelphia. That’s where it started as a brew house, established in 1865 by Samuel Carpenter, an early landowner, entrepreneur and deputy governor of colonial Pennsylvania. Tun Tavern was the birthplace of the Marine Corps, a meeting place for the Masonic Temple, and even welcomed the likes of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin.
By definition, a Tun is a keg, cask, or barrel of beer, and that is exactly what you will find at Tun Tavern. You can see the vats of beer above you while you sip their American IPA, their Golden Ale, called Tun Light, and their own full bodied Oatmeal Stout, the Leather Neck Stout, amongst their beer selections. Can’t decide? No problem, since samplers are available to try a few.
At Tun Tavern, they perfectly pair the beers with their food and can recommend options for you. Their cuisine is so tasty and delicious, they even received Atlantic City Magazine’s Best Pub Food Gold Award. Whether you are looking for a light salad, chicken, or salmon dinner, or want to feast on something a bit heartier like burgers and steaks, Tun Tavern can accommodate your dining needs. Plus they have plenty of apps perfect for sharing, like wings or spinach and crab dip.
