Nice atmosphere. Had some brews. Good beer. Did not eat here. Long drive from TC in the winter on winding roads maybe revisit in the summer

We were there for our anniversary trip andy husband loves their beer! Not for me because it's a little sour for me, but they do have other drinks available. The food is good, I got their pulled pork nachos and were pretty tasty.

Great cozy little brew pub up in northern Michigan, great service, food and beers of course. Too bad we came in the winter but this place must be slamming in the summer!

Great north-country ambiance, nice selection of entrees, starters, etc. Fantastic (and free) house-made chips with cumin sauce delivered while you are contemplating your selection.

My family used to regularly gather at the Bowery, the old pub section of this elegant estate, which now houses a distillery as well as the world famous Jolly Pumpkin brews. I'm not really a Belgian style fan, but they also have me covered with a selection of North Peak beers on tap, and sometimes even the elusive Nomad cider.... More

Clea8, Thank you for the wonderful review. When we transitioned the Bowery into Jolly Pumpkin it was very important to us to keep as much of the history and style available with our own funky twist. It is a wonderful spot that we take a lot of pride in! We are so happy to hear that you have found a... More

I make the trek out a few times a year and they have excellent cocktails and a great selection of food. No complaints, just a bit expensive but still worth the drive.

Astilbe14, Thank you for being a continued supporter of our location. We do appreciate the time you take to sit down and enjoy our menu. We are a farm to table restaurant as much as we can be. It's very important for us to use as much local product as possible that's why you sometimes see a higher price. We... More

We made the trek to Traverse City and incorporated The Jolly into our trip again this year! The wait was short, the wait staff was great and our appetizers were great. Their whitefish dip is THE BEST I have ever had. Also, their truffle fries are amazing, beer is cold and cosmopolitans are perfect! Definitely a must!
