Don't judge a book by it's cover, the food at Tunnicliffs is actually pretty solid. Moreover, the beer list there is strong. Tunnicliffs is also a great place for brunch with nice outdoor seating!

Ambiance: typical for a tavern. Service: prompt but not overwhelming. Food: great value and quality! Burgers and pizza are solid! Their entree size salads are totally shareable. Tuna app and smoked gouda mac n cheese are my favorite apps. And they have an amazing brownie...More

Stopped in and had the One-eyed Burger and a drink. Also started with the artichoke dip. Food was good, as was the service, but nothing stood out as fantastic. Worth a stop if you're in the neighborhood though.

We came here after exploring the local area. It is directly opposite the Eastern market. Food portions are very generous and great banter with the waiter.

Tunnicliff's is a locals place and one that should not be missed. While walking around the Eastern Market our hunger developed so we asked some locals where to go for good food. What a great find! Our breakfast / brunch items were spot on! The...More

The exterior may be nondescript as we walked by the first time, but when two 'locals' at the nearby coffee shop were overheard recommending it, we hightailed it back there. Delighted with our mimosas, Bloody Mary, Brie-fruit-flatbread plates, eggs Benedict, salmon and bagel etc. Friendly...More
