The food was pretty good, but the beer left something to be desired (I prefer bitter ales and they are known for pales and sours...apparently). Also, our waiter announced that Robin Williams died as he brought the food to us. It was a bit jarring and odd. Other than the quirkiness of the waiter, it was pretty good.

Food was good, service was fast and pleasant, we enjoyed the burger and potato pizza. I tried one of their sour beers, tasty.

I went here for lunch and had a pizza and coke. Yes, it's a bar, but they seem to have reasonable lunch fare.

The food was delicious and service friendly. You must try their truffle french fries. They are pretty much amazing. Oh, and the ricotta fritters were scrumptious, like eating fluffy clouds of perfection, a good dish to share with the table.

Had a fun time here before and after the Manchester United game. I ate the BLT which was great. Loved the arugula and mozzarella. My wife had the Popeye pizza which she really enjoyed. Beer wise I had the Oro de Calabaza and Forgotten Tales. Both were excellent, especially the Oro. Will definitely go back next time we are in... More

The ingredients are fresh, the dishes are tasty with interesting variety. The microbrews are not bad as well, nice place to dine while in downtown and has an upstairs patio for the good weather months.

We ate on the roof of Jolly Pumpkin and had a lovely evening. The setting is nice and relaxed, the weather was great and the food very good. Perhaps just a bit expensive but that would be the only fault I could find- the service was great and the experience very pleasant.

Went here in June and brought back the kids this month. Our son has dairy allergies and we love the vegan options. Our kids are 11 and 13 and disagree with others who say it's too much of a bar atmosphere. We have ate both upstairs and out on the patio. Friendly service and unique place to eat.

We went here on a late Saturday afternoon (2pm) for lunch and the place was PACKED (a good sign). My husband and I both had the burger with salad and it was all delicious. I also had the basil limeade which was a refreshing original non-alcoholic drink that I will have to try at home. We love that the restaurant... More

After reading reviews, my son and I went to Jolly Pumpkin. We were hoping to sit outside, but they had a wait so we sat inside - the music is fairly loud and hard to talk inside, but it is also more of a bar atmosphere (we sat upstairs). Per the reviews, we ordered the truffle fries and they were... More
