I went here for the first time a couple weeks ago and it really exceeded my expectations. Aside from the amazing list of beer that they have, the food is a huge step above any typical bar fare. Highly recommend this place.

I took my daughter and several of her friends to Jolly Pumpkin on a recent visit. The atmosphere was hopping and the sound level just right. We had a table for 9 and our server was on it! He came right out with waters and had the amazing chicken nachos and the phenomenal truffle fries in no time. I am... More

As others have reviewed, there have been some palpable changes in what used to be a reliably pleasing experience. Total lack of professionalism all around - something zapped the life outta this place. Could be the chef or new manager as I was told by the waitstaff. But, that was part of my problem - a already dull experience was... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday at about 1:30. We were told there was a half hour wait, so they took our cell# and texted us within 15 minutes. It was nice to be able to check out the cute little shops that surround this restaurant. My husband and I both ordered salads and both of us LOVED... More

My wife and I discovered Jolly Pumpkin shortly after they opened. This place became "our spot" visiting once every week. I've brought business clients in, our son proposed to our daughter-in-law there and the staff knew us by name. This place has always been special until recently. Our visits since the end November have become increasingly sub standard. The spirit... More

With the ever growing influx of brewpubs, Jolly Pumpkin stands out. Nestled among several top flight eating & drinking spots on Ann Arbor's Main Street, the Pumpkin has a solid menu but the specials are what make this a destination. The beer is top flight, and the seasonals are outstanding. With a mix of locals, students and visitors, the Pumpkin... More

Awful pizza. Awful beer. This shouldn't be called a brewery. The staff is nice but everything else is a no go. Don't waste your time or money.

Beer was fantastic and the food was better then what I was expecting. I had a Lamb Burger that was awesome. The server was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu as well as the wine and beer list. Very impressed.
