Great food and drinks!

The seasonal selection of beers is good. The truffle fries and Not Just a BLT sandwich are amazing. Great place for hanging out with friends or an after work cocktail. Love the rooftop in the summer!

Went there for lunch and it was amazing. Their Truffled french fries were to die for and nachos topped with a sour beer. Great atmosphere. Eddie our waiter was great. Definitely a place to stop for lunch or dinner.

I love the Jolly Pumpkin. It is Ann Arbor's GastroPub. First ya got the beer. Their flagship Icon the the Bam Biere. It is a golden cloud of pleasure. Simultaneously very flavorful and refreshing. It was voted one of the top 10 in the USA a few years ago. It is best tasted on Tap. This was one of the... More

We went here because our son chose it for his birthday. None of us have ever been before. When we first sat down and looked at the menu, I was a little concerned for a couple of the pickier eaters in our group and I even wondered what I would order myself. The menu is unique and different from what... More

This is a unique setting of guys with a passion for beer, but not just beer, sour beer... The have a list of sour beers available (more than 5). The waiter we had, really knew his beer and helped to educate the table on sour beers. If you live there, you can invest in a glass mug they let you... More

They are primarily known for their sour beer...so don't complain if your beer is bad, thats how its supposed to be! Visited on a snowy Monday and got a more personal chat with the bartender about the style of beer which amplified my experience. Oh and as a side note, the menu isn't large but amazing things come in that... More

Beer and Pizza--how can you go wrong? The pizza used fresh, locally-obtained ingredients on a thin crust. The in-house brewery specializes in sour beer, which I don't really care for; I found a delicious house chocolate stout which went well with the cheesy pizza. The atmosphere is typical pub, loud and busy; service was excellent, even though the place was... More

It's a great old two-story building that was surprisingly full at 5 p.m. The menu is mostly pizzas and sandwiches. The waitress was friendly, delivering our three sandwiches and drinks within 10 minutes. The lamb burger was juicy, the BLT was - as noted on the menu - more than the usual with added cheese and sun dried tomatoes, and... More

Great restaurant for a beer and bite to eat! My husband ordered the lamb burger and was not very impressed, but the rest of our group seemed to enjoy their food. The truffle fries were great.
