    Must try! Steak salad. The flavor of basil oil dressing on top of spinach and roasted potatoes with perfectly prepared steak will leave you speechless!

    Where do I even begin with Jolly. My ALL-time favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor! I will miss it so much now that I've graduated. Truffle fries are a MUST. Only annoyance: no reservations or call ahead.

    Head to the rooftop patio and grab a sour beer. Truffle fries, red chicken nachos & South Pacific pizza are fantastic. Plus a nice selection of vegetarian options. Ask about the special glass mugs!

    Get. The. Mussels. You're welcome. Great beers, especially sours, and the pizza was really good. If I'm being super critical, the crust was a little doughy, but the flavor was sooo good.

    One of the best souring houses around. Make sure you have time to sample a few beers because they are tasty. The food is also good gastropub style fair.

    My favorite experience in Ann Arbor! The truffle fries with the rosemary aioli... and basically anything you end up ordering will be to die for.

    They make their own spirits and beer! Plus the food menu is very nice--make sure to check the specials, as they are on a different level altogether.

    The beer sampler is a great chance to try all their beers. Pizza is a great price for two people to split & the bacon they use is delish. The rosemary truffle fries are my favorite fries ever.

    Friendly service—the Jolly Pumpkin label is all sours but they have another label as well. Try them all! Fries are great!

    I still love the beer and food here, but the service has gotten atrocious- slow, inattentive, and abrupt.

    Truffle fries are to die for. Also, you can't go wrong with a place that locally sources ingredients!

    Separate waiting lists for upstairs and downstairs, but same menu -- be sure to put your name on both, since wait times often vary quite a bit.

    The chocolate stout is great. If you're vegan or otherwise dairy free, the soy cheese on the pizza is awesome, too.

    They have some veggie options, their sandwiches are good. Skip the steak frites, they put the steak over the fries and ruin the fries. The beer is too warm. The polenta fries are NOT good.

    Truffled fries are a must. They favor sour beers but the Biere de Mars is a refreshing and tasty one even if you dont dig on sour.

    Noel is great no matter how close or far from Xmas you are. La Roja is just plain solid. Try 'em both.

    I can highly recommend the "Carnivore" pizza. That 130 year-old starter for the sour dough is fantastic.
