Will definitely go again!

Jolly Pumpkin is awesome! The beer selection is great. The Mac and cheese is awesome! They have yummy desserts! What more does a bar need?

We were on vacation with two families (4 adults and 5 kids), so we decided to go here after making the trek out to the Old Mission Lighthouse. It’s set in an old farmhouse with a view of the Bay in the front of the property. The inside was very rustic and seemed like much of the woodwork was original.... More

We stopped for a snack and to try a brew or two. The flight of Jolly Pumpkin beers was very good. Ron our bartender was excellent. We had the Crab Tots for an appetizer and would definitely order them again! The wood beams and mugs hanging from the ceiling add to the eclectic atmosphere.

We stopped in at the Jolly Pumpkin for lunch on a whim while out exploring the Old Mission Peninsula. They were busy, but not all tables were full.

Neat little place to visit, especially if you are staying on Old Mission Peninsula. We split a wedge salad and mushroom pizza... both delicious! great beers too. Nice relaxed kind of place.

My sister in law and I were out geo caching on Old Mission Peninsula for the day and stopped here for lunch. The restaurant was nicely decorated, the wait staff very friendly and efficient. I found the menu interesting with some twists on old favorites. I would definitely go here again.

Hard pressed to find a more beautiful setting for dinner. It's actually on the peninsula and just a fantastic setting. A must if you're in TC.

The food was great and the setting could not have been better. Even the drive to Jolly Pumpkin was fantastic.

The location of the restaurant was beautiful, but the pizza and beer were average. I had the andouille sausage pizza and it barely had a piece of sausage per slice. My wife had the entree salad, it looked more like a side salad. I would not go back here personally.
