Every time I go here it's busy which is always a good sign. I love sour beer and they deliver. Nothing but love put into their beer. Check out their tasting room in Dexter too, the staff are great.

So the place is a busy, seemingly popular spot. They seem to handle table turnover well and I liked that they'll send a text when your table is ready, freeing diners to peruse nearby shops during the wait (which wasn't all that long). I started with the mussels, which were served in a creamy broth and topped with a hefty... More

I am not much of a beer drinker, but friends who are say this is a great place to imbibe. The food is generally good and suits the beer focus. There is an attempt to have some healthy options too, although the truffle fries clearly do not fit in that category! (worth trying). WIth all the restaurant options on Main... More

The Jolly Pumpkin is always a great option for lunch, dinner, or a few drinks! Menu items change from time to time, but I love everything I've had there. I especially love their pizzas (which are quite large) and the Steak Salad. And, of course, no meal is complete without some of the Truffle Fries. So tasty! The beers and... More

Visited the Jolly Pumpkin when we were in Ann Arbor for a football game. The beers were great, and the food was amazing. Had the truffle fries -- the best I've had -- and a very tasty cheese plate. Cool vibe as well.

Food is great and I love the down-to-earth pub atmosphere. The beer made here is quite unique, centered on Belgian sours. The beers are experimental but stay pretty true to the style. Nothing bizarre. A must-do if you are in Ann Arbor and are a beer aficionado.

The food at Jolly Pumpkin is beyond compare. My favorite is the grilled romaine salad, which they allow you to split upon request. The salad comes with a potato crouton that is delicious! They also offer fritta, which are batter-fried seasonal vegetables. The zucchini fritta and poblano fritta are excellent. Well worth a visit for lunch or dinner in Ann... More

We didn't try the beers but the food and service were great. Burgers were perfectly cooked to order and the think fries were crispy and tasty.

Great beer selection, and delicious food! They have some awesome pizzas with sourdough crust. The beers are sour, and I love them! Plenty of tasty vegetarian options, too. The rooftop fills up quickly on nice days, but you wait at the upstairs bar and have a drink in the meantime!

Great beer selection, very good food. If we bring guests to town the Jolly Pumpkin is always a hit. Good for either lunch or dinner.
