The brewery has a nice ambiance and fine wooden bar. There are multiple beer options to explore. I really enjoyed the IPA. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was high end bar food. No real complaints there. Overall a very nice experience. Would go back.

Excellent food, beer and service. My friends and I went there on a Saturday evening and only had about a 10 minute wait for a table. I will definitely be going back the next time I'm in the area.

My wife and I when we go to Ann Arbor always try to find a new place to eat and we just tries Jolly Pumpkin. It was a great place to eat with a unique menu that had new types of food that were great. We will definately go back and eat their again.

I recently reviewed the lamb burger at the Jolly Pumpkin but had the pleasure to come back again so this time I'm reviewing the beer and more food. We had two pitchers of beer and it was delicious. Along with that we had warm olives and the truffle pizza. The pizza was yummy but I wish there were more truffles.... More

Excellent burgers, salads (especially the steak salad), pizza, and variety of other foods at reasonable prices. Plus very interesting mixed drinks and beers,The staff could not have been friendlier. Great place to take college students while visiting the U of Michigan.

Known for their beer, but people should really go for the food. Bacon and Egg Pizza for brunch is the best!

Jolly Pumpkin is our favorite go-to place in Ann Arbor. The Bam Bier, truffle fries, and popeye pizza is a great way to spend a Friday night. The staff are friendly and attentive and we've never had a bad experience. It can get busy/crowded, but it's worth the wait. Highly recommend it!

The fries! Oh the truffly goodness draws me back again! The food is not boring/fried 'bar food'- they have lovely salads and great burgers and did I mention the Truffle Fries? I usually explore the unique mixed drinks (Ginger Cosmo!) since I don't really care for the 'sour' style of beer that they brew.
