“Great deals!! Always a happy hour!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

This place may look like a hole in wall at first site but it actually is not bad! The prices are great. Even if it isn't "happy hour" there is always some sort of special and the regular prices are cheap too. For instance a Captain Morgan with coke is regularly 4.50 which you can't beat. The food is even decent! The Meditteranean salad with chicken is pretty good and so are other things that I have tried. They have a wing special on certain days and those are great too. Def check out this college bar if looking for a bargain! There is even a good amount of outdoor seating.

“loud college place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

with less than mediocre food. If you're in town for the game, and looking to immerse yourself in Michigan football lore, or less than 24, and looking for cheap shots and beer, worth checking out. Otherwise not.

“Ann Arbor institution”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

The Brown Jug has been around since the mid-1930's and still stands the test of time! Great pub-style food, student atmosphere right off campus. Always worth a stop when in town.

“Quiet place with great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This place has a great location near the heart of Central Campus. It is a quieter setting great for talking with large groups.

The food was also surprisingly good and at a great value. The stuffed grape leaves made a fantastic dinner.

The crowd is mostly graduate students, but our group of undergrads had a great time.

“Service is horrible”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

For a short order restaurant service is very lax. Don't come here is you aren't off for the afternoon. Requires patience and lots of time. Something most of us don't have in abundance. And I really mean abundance.
