On our tour of Traverse City breweries, this was a last minute addition. I'm so glad we went and it will be the first place we go when we come back. My husband and I each had the roast beef sandwich. The meat was not dry, the bun didn't fall apart, the flavor of the juice was great. And, yes, the brews were great.

What a beautiful setting in the old house that is the setting for the Jolly Pumpkin on Old Mission peninsula! Fall leaves everywhere made for a beautiful view while we had lunch (& beer). Big fire in the fireplace, Sunday football on the TV, and some great food. Try the perch - very sizable fillets and tasty, and perhaps some crab tots to start - yum.

Not sure if we went on the wrong day, at the wrong time, but it was VERY bad. Arrived about 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon. We walking in to a very rude hostess that made us feel like we were bothering her. They had a 10 minute wait so we looked around and when we were alerted that our table was ready she was worse.
Things didn't get any better the waitress (M W) was not friendly extremely slow and most of the time we couldn't even find her. She forgot drinks and we we asked for a couple of condiments to go with our food it took 15 plus minutes. The food not good. One sandwich it almost looked like they forgot the meat the other the bun was so dry is crumbled. She nor the busboy would take the used dishes off the table. Even once he grabbed a cup that was on 2 plates along with some silverware and we asked him to take the other items and he kinda looked at us and made a grunting noise.
Too many other places in the area to for us to go back

Thank Scott V

My husband and I both really enjoyed the pizza here. I had pepperoni and basil and he had bacon. Full of flavor, cooked perfect and just delicious. Heated up the oven for my leftovers the next day and it was just as good! We will be back!

About half way up Old Mission Peninsula, close to the West Bay. Great pub atmosphere, lots of craft beers, and the rest of the drink menu is good too. Dinner was quite good, servie was good, lots of good stuff on the menu.
