The atmosphere is definitely the highlight of this place. Two floors with outdoor seating area on the second floor. Eclectic decor, really nice staff, fun bar with multiple beer taps, and even a few wine taps. As a beer lover (and snob), I wouldn't say the beers are amazing, but they are worth checking out. They have some interesting sour... More

I am not a huge fry fan, but the truffle fries were amazing! I loved them, so glad we got them. We weren't super hungry, so my husband and I split the side of truffle fries and a pizza, which was also good. My friend said her favorite is the Grilled Chicken Brie sandwich, which I would love to try... More

We had a wonderful lunch here. The food was delicious, fresh, and creative. The truffle fries were to die for. The beer menu was also great - there were plenty of tasty sours, but also a range of other styles to suit anyone's taste. The location is right down town and there is a convenient parking garage right near by.... More

This is a terrific little spot for dinner in the pleasant surroundings of downtown Ann Arbor. We decided to come here on Father's Day to try something different. We had been to the Main Street area to dine many times but this was our first time to try this particular establishment. We were in no way disappointed as the food... More

The staff were friendly. The food and drinks were great. Most of the food is from local farmers and or organic. They have a wide variety on their menu with food and drinks. The prices are average for Ann Arbor. The atmosphere was nice. It wasn't loud or rowdy and we stayed for over an hour.

Jolly Pumpkin is hands-down our favorite brewery and pub in town, for many reasons. First, the beer is unique and delicious. They're a sour beer brewer and it is fantastic and locally brewed in Dexter, MI. Second, the food. You have to be trendy to keep your restaurant open on Main St, and Jolly Pumpkin has artisan pizzas, sandwiches, and... More

The Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor has a wide variety of craft beers brewed on site and other locally brewed. The list includes their regularly brewed beers and several seasonal beers with interesting flavors. The food is also an interesting mix. I had the Grilled Chicken With Brie which was an excellent choice. The Apricot jam really brings out the... More

This is one of Ann Arbors best restaurants in my opinion. For food try the lamb burger or one of their unusual pizzas. Their beers and atmosphere are great and I would definitely recommend this place.

A great place for a casual lunch or after work meeting with friends. The menu has some great salad, sandwich and pizza offerings, with many unique twists on standard fare. They get many of their ingredients from local sources and the food is prepared and presented well. The place has a wonderful pub type ambiance and is one of my... More

Stopped by for late lunch on a Saturday. Waitress very knowledgable on drafts on tap and brought us some samples to try before we both settled on the Bam Biere. We ordered the spicy tofu sandwich and the walleye po boy. Both were very good and the truffled fries had just the right amount of truffle. The tofu sandwich could... More
