I wish I had read the reviews before setting foot into Tumulty's. It no longer has the atmosphere of a warm cozy pub it used to be. Booths are gone, which are replaced with tables reminding me of a cafeteria. The coziness is just not there. The food is ok but the pub fries are not there. The waiter we... More

Sorry to say - but Tumulty's does not give the ambiance of an Irish Pub. The wooden booths are gone! Started going to dinner here ( at its original location) in 1978! We visited on 12/27 - only 9 other people dining. I ordered Prime Rib ( choice of three 12, 16, or 20 oz) NO prime rib available! Next... More

Gone are the wooden booths yet no more seating. Menu is close to the same but prices have jumped. No pub fries? Wedge of lettuce now additional cost. Fell off the travel for list but better than I feared.

Tumulty's has been a New Brunswick institution for more than 80 years and, until this summer, had been owned by the same family. This continuity led to an expected level of quality in the food along with unparalleled affordability. However, this summer the family sold the restaurant to a new family and things are not the same. We always loved... More

I thought the food here was disgusting. The burger was salty and the fries were poor. There is a train that goes around the restaurant. Only problem with that, I could not see it. Service here is very good here though.

I am super thrilled to see that Tumulty's is only getting a make over rather than being shut down as i had heard. If they keep the menu the same i would always recommend their french onion soup!! I always get the half head of lettuce and soup.. good, cheap and filling. their steak is also pretty good for a... More

Great atmosphere with entertainment downstairs at times. We've eaten here several times and always enjoyed ourselves. Despite how busy they are, we've always been able to find a table. Apps are great, and the menu's dinner options offer enough for everyone.

I had the swordfish which was tasty but then again it's hard to go wrong with swordfish. I went during restaurant week and their prix fix menu was disappointingly limited. They did have a variety of good beers available. One minor annoyance—I was there with a large group, many of whom needed separate receipts for reimbursement purposes. Not ideal, I... More

The menu is kind of limited, and nothing is very exciting. The beer selection is limited, and again not very exciting. Good place for a good meal, but not for an excellent meal

Stopped in for a business lunch. Average taste and presentation for pub food. Pretty dark in there, but had model trains running around tracks throughout the restaurant - very cool. The server was not very interested in his job or returning to check on us. Had to ask another person to get drink refills.

Tumulty’s is known for providing the best value in Casual American food and drink. Our 10 Ounce Pub Burgers and Black Angus Burgers are consistently ranked among New Jersey’s Best Burgers. Our Prime Rib and New York Strip Steaks compare with entrees costing much more at other restaurants. Fresh seafood specials and vegetarian entrees provide great choices for non-meat eaters.Our downstairs room is great for private parties and meetings. We welcome Rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, holiday celebrations, cocktail parties, business meetings and seminars. Packages for dinners, buffets, hors-d’oervres and open bars are very reasonably priced.
