“I go here to eat TRUFFLE FRIES!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The fries! Oh the truffly goodness draws me back again! The food is not boring/fried 'bar food'- they have lovely salads and great burgers and did I mention the Truffle Fries? I usually explore the unique mixed drinks (Ginger Cosmo!) since I don't really care for the 'sour' style of beer that they brew.

“Ann Arbor Must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

I absolutely love everything about this place! I ordered a salad and it was heavenly. We were also told by locals to order the fries which came with a garlic and rosemary dipping sauce. It was delish!.

“Great Restaurant Disguised as a Brewpub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Jolly Pumpkin is a great brewery in its own right. They do follow a very distinctive style of beers and do a great job of it, although the style is not for everyone. But the food is equally if not more impressive. Creative and well prepared appetizers and sandwiches keep it from being your standard pub food. The pizza is fantastic in every way and the JP Burger was well constructed.

“Lamb burger to die for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

We were seated promptly and had an excellent and friendly server who really catered to our picky drink needs. My lamb burger was fantastic. A good serving of lamb and very decadent and rich. I ordered it with some truffle fries which were also equally as amazing. I would definitely come back to try their beers next time I'm in the area.
