Very Nice...

A solid joint, with great beer and good food. They're well known for their sour beers, and they don't disappoint. I got a sampler, with a mix of sours and IPAs. The IO Red Saison is outstanding! I had the "Carnivore" pizza, and the bartender was pretty good with beer suggestions. I'm in town for a... read more

My family and I visited the JP on Saturday night. The restaurant was packed and we had to wait an hour. We almost gave up and went somewhere else, but I am glad we did not. The menu is amazing - local ingredients and extremely flavorful. My daughter's warm artichoke sandwich had marinated artichokes, roasted red peppers, chick pea spread,... More

On the recommendation of a friend (and so many great reviews on Trip Advisor) my husband and I visited the Jolly Pumpkin for lunch. We had a delightful and attentive server who gave us wonderful recommendations! We started with the truffle fries which were amazing! My husband ordered the BLT and I had the market pizza (with caramelized onions, bacon,... More

Fries with truffle sauce. Mussels. Mediterranean Pizza. All delish. Great place to take hungry University of Michiganders.

The Jolly Pumpkin is a great addition to Ann Arbor. I went with a large group and they did a great job with a timely tasty lunch. It was healthy AND yummy. I loved my fries and I can't wait to eat there again. Zingerman's might have all the hype, but I'll take this over Zingerman's any day.

My wife, son and I had dinner here after a Michigan hoops game. The place was hopping and we were told it would be a 20 to 30 minute wait. It was 10! This is a small establishment and seating is a bit tight. We had drinks and dinner. Our server, Kerry, was very nice, helpful and friendly. I had... More

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
