I have visited all of Jolly Pumpkins locations and while Traverse City is my personal favorite, they all provided the same level of high quality service, food, and most importantly beers! The offer a unique menu with plenty of food options for all taste, and great Artisan Ales! Must try!

I come here fairly frequently, and I've had a pleasant experience every time. I've loved every dish I've tried, and the prices are moderately pricey but nothing crazy. They make their own sour beers, which I personally enjoy but aren't for everyone. The truffle Parmesan fries are not to be missed!

If you want a quiet meal go elsewhere...this place is noisy and loud. It's either the music or the people. The food is pretty good and the atmosphere is cozy. Wait staff are knowledgeable about the menu and the food comes to you hot. Enjoyable evening.

The service was the very best. Our waitress was very helpful and knew her menu, both food and drink. The beers were good, too. We all have different preferences and all were happy. The food was good. Nothing that anyone is raving about, but we'd eat here again. The truffle fries were ok. Liked the rosemary on them, but have... More

We had the cream of artichoke soup, walleye poboy, carnivore pizza, and I had the coconut icecream. The only disappointment for me was the walleye. I'd been craving it and thinking about ordering it for the past two months. I did not anticipate the sweet vegetable chow chow. Don't get me wrong, it was prepared beautifully and tasted wonderful. I... More

Good lunch served by at the bar by someone who really knew his beers. Sampled all the beers. Liked the Stormy IPA and the Bourbon Barrel Imperial Red a lot. I had a seriously good BLT sandwich ($11.00) and a bowl of cassoulet soup ($5.00). Great food in a good atmosphere.

Nice place but the tables seemed to be a little closer than most restaurants, at least upstairs where we are. We asked to be moved next to the window and the hostess was very accommodating. The window view was nice to people watch. The food and drinks were good and reasonably priced. I would go back.
