Was very surprise with the Food. Very Very Good. Great portions . Price was Very Good as well. Willgoback . Loved the Two Guys singing
It was not crowded at all due to the Coronvirus. Still was very nice. I had pork sliders which was very good.
Remember when this place was Tumultys...brought back memories. Good hamburger and nice evening
Little to no atmosphere in this place. There wasn’t a single piece of wall decoration up, no music playing, etc. the menu seemed good, but the appetizer were the best thing we had. The main dishes and the “famous” house made donuts were below average at best. The dining area has potential to be a “more up beat place” and the beer/liquor select was sufficient. The staff was friendly but not overly knowledgeable about their menu when asked about specifics in dishes. I would not go back.
This place has keep some of the things we loved about long standing Tumulty's, like the lettuce wedge and train. I'm watching my carbs and when I requested no fries, they offered other options, which was a nice change. Great place for a burger when in New Brunswick!
We’ve came here every year we come to compete against Rutgers. One of the most hospitable spots amongst big ten conference cities. Always a highlight of the trip. Great atmosphere, great service, great food.
There was an issue In kitchen so food was slow to come out. However, manager/owner came over several times to keep us updated, offer free drinks and even took money off our bill. We’ve eaten here many times with no problems so I certainly don’t fault them for one slow night. Will definitely return as food is excellent.
Wow, after dining at Tavern on George, I really miss Tumulty's! A giant step back from the beloved Rutgers' Institution that used to be. We arrived at 6 PM, and in nearly 2 hours could not even manage to get dessert before we had to leave to catch a show at State Theatre. Service was slow and inattentive ~ 2 of us were served soup with no spoons, the server never came back so we ate the soup with a fork. The upstairs renovation looks like they were going for an industrial look, but never quite finished the work. The booths have all been torn out and replaced with tables with metal stools. The place is now drafty and has lost the coziness that made Tumulty's the Rutgers date night go-to place. The food was nothing special. ~ Sigh ~ such a loss for New Brunswick.
Great venue pre-show and staff was upbeat and professional! However they were woefully understaffed - one great waitress and a bus person for entire downstairs at dinner hour - so we almost missed the show. They need to staff up to accommodate theater crowds especially on a weekend. Although we had to run to the show, the food was quite good and the location and value were also excellent.
It was amazing. Staff was great!!! Will def be back!
Jazz night at the Tavern on George was phenomenal, as always.
Jazz on Wed and Thur nights is always stellar. Beer is cold, fries and burgers are great. Becca is terrific.
Service was a bit out of gear compared to previous visits. Food timing was off. Had to search for server a couple of times. Didn’t have this issue before. Won’t keep us from retuning.
Jazz in the basement of Tavern on George is the best thing happening in New Brunswick! Becca, Pete, Doug, Tom, etc. are the best bar staff in town. Woot!
Perfect night out with my 16 year old daughter and her friend before seeing a show at the State Theatre. Service was quick, food was excellent and reasonably priced, staff was friendly. Short walk to the theater made for a pleasant evening. This was also not our first visit and every trip has been the same. Highly recommend Tavern on George!
The fish and chips looked delicious, so two in the party ordered it. It was very salty and soggy. The cheeseburger was cooked perfectly and was very good.
Very pleasant pre-George St theater venue for lunch. Staff was attentive and responsive. Everyone in our party enjoyed the food and the "Hot Toddy" drinks on a cold damp afternoon. Our ladies party really enjoyed this experience in New Brunswick. We would definitely return for another good time
Yummy food and great ambiance
Food was ok. Felt like food and drinks were a little pricey.
Celebrated a birthday. Party of 7. It was understaffed on that day but the food was great and the waitress was very nice. It was just very slow.
Food was ok. Service was lacking. Seemed short staffed on the wait staff side. Took a long time for the server to visit us to place our order. Received Pita Chips that came with a salad halfway through having eaten it. Had to track down the server for our check.
Honestly, it was a "so-so" overall experience. I do believe our experience would have been much better if obvious service adjustments are made in the near future.
Went for the Jazz, which was excellent, and was very pleased with overall experience. Unique, well made cocktails and specialty donuts made the evening!
Live music from Guitaro5000 was fun. He worked the crowd well.
Great meal and service. Had the Impossible Burger which was great. Also had Golden Monkey on draft. Great resurrection of Tumulty’s
Our waitress was great but u only offer waffles and donuts for dessert and their were no donuts so that left us 1 option for dessert. We went elsewhere for dessert.
The bartender was condescending when speaking with my sister about her drink which everyone at the table agreed was nasty. The same person later on made it a point to turn around and glare and roll her eyes at my sister. Perhaps a more mature staff would help.
Great food, drinks, and music. Friendly staff. Old school atmosphere with a modern twist.
Simple delish burgers, fries and wedge salad. Is our go to in New Brunswick. Quick service but not rushed.
Good choice of food. Good friendly service. We were there for pre dinner meal and not rushed. Food served on time without a wait.
Great time! Already recommended this place to other State Theatre club members!
Good beer selection but food is only OK. Service was good.
Good burger and a beer
Drinks too expensive
The service poor. The restaurant was full with only 2 wait staff working.
Great food. Slow service. Not enough servers.
Solid lunch place
We had a very good meal and experience. They did appear to be a bit understaffed on a show night. It took us a bit long for our initial drinks and appetizers.
Live music Friday evening was great, fun musicians who wanted everyone to have a good time. Service was perfect, food was good too. Atmosphere was lively, some of the old character from Tumulty’s remains but somehow looks current and updated at the same time. Downstairs looked quiet and welcoming to anyone who wanted a quieter cozy atmosphere. We will defiantly be back. Big plus having live music Friday and Saturday evenings, glad the music starts earlier rather than later.
Love the place! We’ve been there a few times and saw some bands we really like! Food is great, service is great, staff awesome!
The place was comfortable and pleasing. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly and on the ball. Everything came quickly and it was an overall wonderful evening.
