I loved the atmosphere. The food was good. We walked upstairs to see the elevator where Genevive Stickney supposedly hung herself.. The potato chip appetizer is very good.

The food is different. Rabbit on their salads and stuff like that. Other than fillet mignon was cooked excellent , it was small and served with a table spoon of potatoes purée and a couple asparagus. Expected a little more for $50. The dessert was freezer burned and tasted old. The service was so slow our table was taking bets... More

Take the beautiful drive along the Peninsula to the Old Mission area. Stop and have a drink and a bite to eat at this great place. It is a brewery and a Distillery and a great place to eat. .

Jolly Pumpkin is on Old Mission Peninsula, which is an absolute gem and must if you're visiting the area. This is a great stop after hitting up all the amazing wineries on this peninsula, which FYI are MUCH better in comparison to Leelenau). Great food, love the free chip appetizer, and the wine is reasonably priced. I had a tomato... More

they do have a good choice of beers, mostly brewed by northpeak. they also know how to cook. the food is tasty and well prepared. but they need to train their servers better. to get your order wrong 2 times, one should have a "talent"

The restaurant feels like it's hidden away on the Old Mission Peninsula and the atmosphere is comfortable. Varied menu with lots of selections for everyone. Food was good and satisfying, though not great. Beer selection is excellent.

We are glad we stopped to have some lunch! We ate the pulled pork with coleslaw and my son had your pizza, all was delicious! My husband had a bite of the pizza and he said it was super good. The portion size for my six year old was very large, he has a big appetite so that was great!... More

A friend and I went there specifically for the pulled port nachos. Yum! The beer choices are fantastic and local, that is so cool. We were able to walk there from where we were at that day. Good service, great food and beer. A fun place to stop in for a bite and a beer.
