We had an excellent lunch today with amazing service considering the Chelsea vs Real Madrid crowd in town for the game. Generous portions. Great sour beer. We had the burger, Walleye sandwich, steak salad and soup of the day (roasted veggie). Clean flavors. Friendly. All around they nailed it. Salad usually comes with bleu cheese which I asked to be...

I first visited a Jolly Pumpkin years ago in Traverse City. Food was great, staff was friendly and I enjoyed the atmosphere there. I have been to the Ann Arbor location twice (both for Michigan games, Go Blue!) and have not been let down. The staff and atmosphere is great, kind of like a Pub/Bar and Grill restaurant compared to... More

I'll confess that the Jolly Pumpkin on S. Main Street is my home away from home. The staff are great people, always helpful and friendly. The food is great and the beer is tasty. The brunch is my favorite - especially the breakfast pizza in its many incarnations. Chase that down with a Diabolical IPA and life is good... I'm... More

Food is good. Another restaurant in Ann Arbor that opens before noon. Burgers are the best! Cobb salad is also my favorite. Must try the truffle fries. Pizza is so-so...not my style. They used to have a pizza with bacon and dried pineapples...menu change quite often.

Located in downtown Ann Arbor Mi.,this is a gem of a restaurant. The craft beers are great, and the hard ciders are also good. They always have a vegan entree and wonderful truffle fries. Prices are not too bad. The restaurant is in an old building that is full of atmosphere. The wait staff is great and they always make... More

Stopped in during the Ann Arbor Art Fair yes the service was great. Large selection of both sour beers and non-sour beers on tap. The menu included many vegetarian dishes as well. I ordered a Tempeh Reuben with a salad.

Brought our son here who was visiting from out of the country because he had heard of Jolly Pumpkin's beer and wanted to check it out. We went for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a casual, big place. The food selection matches the casual vibe. We all tried something different with positive results. The beer was also delicious; several... More

While at Ann Arbor Art Fair we made JP one of our lunch destinations. Again! Great food, lots of beverage choices, and friendly knowledgeable service. Truffle fries are divine. Asian Salad was yummy! Lamb burger (I conned a bite from friend) was fresh & delish. Husband enjoyed Walleye po'boy. Breads, buns all tops.
