The eclectic menu is very interesting with American standards, Mexican and Greek items. But the food quality is just average. The burrito was a bit disappointing and the stuffed grape leaves were good but only four small ones for $9.99 seemed steep. Our group also...More

Ate at the Brown Jug on the advice of a local friend and the sandwiches were delicious. I had the Pesto chicken sandwich and it was extremely tasty. Even the bread was good.

We went to the Brown Jug after a U of M Softball vs Indiana. Due to the students being gone, it wasn't too busy. Our waitress, Shelby, was fantastic. My sister and I had Copp's Club, and mom had a burger. Both came with kettle...More

We met an old friend here for drinks on Friday night. This place is a classic college bar with sports playing on the TVs and college banners and pictures on the wall. It was pretty jammed at 5:30. We did not even look at the...More

Lots of mixed reviews of this place. We have been here many times before a football game and have never had a bad time. The beer was cold, I expensively priced and tasted great. We had Hoagies to eat and they were both delicious. Special...More

I dined here when I was in college in the 70s, and came back to Ann Arbor for the Art Fair last week. We decided to have lunch here and beat the rush to get a table. Our server was wonderful and the marinara sauce...More
