Finding an established tavern in New Brunswick was perfect for us to settle in and enjoy. The Guinness and stew were perfect.

Damn! The new owners renovated, took out ALL the booths & thereby destroyed all the "Authentic PUB Character" this place had since I've been going here (1985!) The new decor is sparse, minimal and "Sports Bar-like;" complete with 3 huge flat screens playing 3 "games," behind the enormous (out of proportions, oversized & overkill new Bar!) Food (Fish N Chips,... More

When we were last there, about 7 years ago, it looked like a nice, mid to up scale pub. We were shocked walking in this time, it looked like a place that had just opened after being hit by superstorm sandy! But the burgers were first rate, although my burger which was ordered rare, came nearly medium. And the menu... More

What was once a nice old cozy pub with great food has turned into for the lack of a better word a cafeteria. The food is not bad but not as good as it once was and the service is adequate at best. I do not think I will be returning anytime soon and I work a few blocks away.

It was dark - thought I was going into a cellar but I climbed stairs! Not the most welcoming place. Very matter-of-fact - customer here I have to serve them. Steak was cooked how I required but was chewy. The train running around was the highlight.

This establishment has new owners "NewBees." The atmosphere is has been updated and spacious. The trains remain! Family restaurant. Known for their tempting menu and wedge salad. Take a drive into New Brunswick, park and enjoy. Great cheddar burger.

For decades, Tumulty's was a mainstay in New Brunswick and one of the best Pubs anywhere. After its long-time family owners retired last year, the name was kept with much of the menu. New owners renovated, keeping what they thought was best and got rid of what they thought was worst. But they destroyed the signature cozy wood booths and... More

This is an unpretentious place and that's a good thing too. As Churchill once remarked, "that woman is modest and she has a lot to be modest about." Starting with the best part: the bartender at a private function I attended a couple of weeks ago was most congenial and helpful. The staff was evidently trying hard, but their professional... More

Tumulty's has recently been refurbished, given it an "old world" feeling, but once inside it is very comforting and both the food and staff give excellent quality and service

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

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.
