At Jolly Pumpkin, you can find one of the best selection of craft beers in Michigan, from wheat to sour to porter and stout. Very nice and authentic environment with some very good burgers.

Rain falling from the ceiling and light fixtures onto our table. Two small children running around very noisily.

We went twice; once to taste the beers and again for lunch. In my opinion, the JP has the best craft beers in town. The seasonal sour varieties were excellent and the Diabolical IPA is top-notch. Lunch was great too. We all enjoyed our selections.

WE were in to have a beer. Well, that led to another. They have a very good selection. They have real solid beer. We tried a couple flights and then enjoyed our favorites from there. Crazy busy- great vibe. Fun place.

This was my first trip into Ann Arbor and although there are some great dining (lunch) choices in the area, Jolly Pumpkin hit it out of the park! The ambiance, food and the beer is an experience you don't want to miss. Our lunch included the Farmer's Fritto appetizer, their claim to the #1 burger in town with Truffled French... More

I have never had a bad experience with the food, beer, staff. The restaurant does get busy but haven't had to wait more than 15 minutes. I'm very sensitive to motion and if you are also, I would not recommend sitting upstairs near the railing. The noise level is a bit loud when busy and can be difficult to have... More

We went this restaurant a couple of times. I think the best one in downtown Ann Arbor!Especially the pizzas. You can't take out pizzas.

This restaurant was recommended by a friend but we were skeptical about the "sour beer". The waitress was awesome and taught us about it and let us do a lot of sampling before deciding on which pint to get. The nacho were yummy and they comped them just because we waited a bit for them (I honestly didn't even notice... More
