Very nice atmosphere!

This place is great because of its no-nonsense atmosphere. The beers are good, better with the Gardener's Snack Board. Truffled French fries are yummy, as well as the 'Truffle' pizza. It really is very good. I like it that you can stay for hours, just chatting with your friends and there is no... read more

As a very picky beer drinker I appreciate this place so much. I love their sour beer options - so tasty and unique. We had an amazing flight of beer and an equally amazing pizza with potatoes, bacon, mozzarella, onions, and chives! I can't wait to come back here. Service was great as well.

This was our second attempt after two years. On our last attempt we were disappointed with the hoppy beer and limited selections, but now a dear friend works there, so we decided to give JP a fresh, open minded visit. Besides, there have been so many rave reviews about the beer since then. My husband enjoyed his Rambler beer, and... More

It was a cool and windy March afternoon in downtown Ann Arbor. We wanted to try the Jolly Pumpkin because of all the positive tripadvisor reviews. Mostly tripadvisor is spot on, unfortunately this time not so much so. The food was mediocre at best. It is also very pricey. Expect to pay $25 plus for a luncheon salad or soup... More

Jolly Pumpkin is one of my favorite go-to places for lunch or dinner and I go pretty often. They have a Sunday brunch as well. The food is well worth a visit - everything I have tried is at worst good and at best delicious. Even though my favorite item on the menu is the Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Ginger... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant and the meal we had. Once we got seated that is. I work in the service industry and have a good understanding of reservations etc. I'm not sure I understood the reasoning for a "reserved" table to sit empty for the entire 30 mins of our wait. The food mind you was fabulous, the atmosphere was... More

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon and a perfect day to eat outside. Jolly Pumpkin is usually a good spot to people watch, sip on a beer, and share one of their specialty pizzas. When we arrived, only one table was clean and available on their outside eating area. We ordered our food and drink and sat back to enjoy... More

Fun night with husband. Beautiful night for roof top dining. People of all ages seen to be enjoying libations and food. Amazing no one was on their cell phone. That should tell u something.

I stopped into this little pub on a business trip and was so impressed with the food that I came back the next day and brought to-go back for everyone else! I would love to go again and enjoy a nice beer with their attentive bartenders and out of this world pizza!

This is a warm and cozy place, large on the inside , with very interesting beers ( i liked the hyacinth). Good vegetarian options. I liked the old timey decor. The cocoanut ice cream was superb.
