This restaurant provided a great lunch stop for us. We had heard really good things and finally got a chance to try it. Service was great. We didn't try a beer (a bit of a bummer since that is half the reason to go from what we hear). The food was very good. We got some very tasty truffle fries... More

We enjoyed a great lunch at Jolly Pumpkin. Unique beers - very tasty. Enjoyed the margherita pizza and the sandwich/salad lunch combo.

We went there after reading some Yelp reviews. Truffle fries were really good. I did not like the pizza much. Their vegetarian sandwich was good. Drinks were ok. Will return to try other things in the future.

Came for an early lunch. Not your normal pub menu. Food quality and presentation was exceptional. Lamb buyer was thick and juicy. Had the tasty side salad with it. My wife really enjoyed her quinoa salad. We will be back to check out some of the other menu items.

I've eaten at the Jolly Pumpkin at least three times now, and am consistently impressed. The burgers are really good, fish sandwich is excellent, as is the tofu/tempeh sandwich. The last time there I had a fish special, trout w/wonderful wheatberries, cranberries & kale. It was really good, perfectly cooked. It's a nice friendly place. I plan on returning.

Went for a dinner with an old friend who has a variety of food allergies and celiac disease. Was a lil nervous, but the staff and the menu softened my anxiety. The waitress was beyond friendly and accommodating and the hamburger is still on my mind a day later. It's amazing how I have passed this place a thousand times... More

On a bitter cold day, this warm, cozy, and welcoming restaurant was just the thing. The spicy sweet potato soup had a terrific texture and enough spice bite to almost be dangerous! JP burgers were satisfying, and when my medium rare arrived more like well done, it was whisked away for a new, and medium rare one. All the difference,... More

Atmosphere was wonderful, great ambience. Sat in bar area, was a little noisy, but was still able to have conversation. Our server Nicole was very attentive, and offered samples of the different kinds of sour and non-sour beer. We ordered the truffle fries, and those were prompt and outstanding! We split the smoke and fire pizza, as we asked Nicole... More

We were told a 35-50 minute wait as we arrived at the Jolly Pumpkin on a Friday evening during the holidays. My immediate impression was that a good crowd while the University was out of session was a good sign for my first visit to the Jolly Pumpkin. We would be alerted that our table was ready via text within... More

Oh my goodness, awesome place. The fries, do it, nachos, do it, and those are just a few apps. Chicken Brie sandwich was Goliath. Beer, awesome and nicely priced, not cheap, but fair. The sour beer, that's for some, not for me, but they have non sours too. The waitress Carolyn was so awesome, my wife and I loved her.... More
