I came here for a business luncheon and was busy discussing matters with a colleague. Therefore, this review may/will likely overlook some nuances in the ambiance and services which other reviews noticed and appreciated. I do recall it being cozy and comfortable; busy without being so overwhelming that I have to shout in order to be heard. The dishes were... More

I had never been here before but I am so glad I found the Pumpkin! There were 18 of celebrating college graduation and with a party that big you just never know. But the staff was great and we never had to wait long for anything and this place was packed. The beer is really good but the star of... More

Our plan was to go carb load on a Saturday evening before a race, so we picked Jolly Pumpkin. We wandered around downtown while waiting for a text saying our table was ready. It was incredibly loud and busy but our service was still good. We ordered various pizzas and they were all really good. One of the best thin... More

Absolutely have to try the truffle fries. They are amazing! Food in general is distinctive and yummy. You must try rooftop dining in the summer season. Unique craft cocktails.

Stopped in for some drinks, didn't try the food although everyone around us looked to be enjoying it. Delicious hard, dry cider!

If I had to choose between Zingerman's and Jolly Pumpkin Jolly Pumpkin wins out every time they even have a location in Traverse City which is pretty awesome the Ann Arbor location is in the very nice downtown area with all the cool shops we had brunch on the strip and I had a delicious omelette with marinated mushrooms now...

This was a perfect first stop on our recent visit to discover Ann Arbor! Located on S. Main, a few blocks west of the UM campus this place captures all the est of the college town feel. Stepping in off the street the bar is the first feature, warm and inviting. The atmosphere is definitely casual and there is a... More

Came in on a Monday night with 4 others expecting it to be quiet...NOT. Sat upstairs & was waited on by the bartender (a delightful chap). The beer was delightful & the food was even better. We would highly recommend the butcher's snack board, the truffle pizza and the carnivore pizza.
