After a trip up north to visit relatives in Detroit I had to stop off in Ann Arbor for a chance to unwind. That place was the Grizzly Peak brewing Company.

I had never been there before but the beer selection and food menu was very enticing to this weary traveler. We sat outside on the sidewalk on a beautiful sunny day. Never went inside so can't say much about the atmosphere.

Service was friendly and informative.

The beer list was about nine beers deep. I had the IPA which had very strong butter notes to it...but then again, so did the pale ale. It was an average IPA in my opinion. I also had the ESB on cask which was very good. They also had a hefe on cask as well.

The food was incredible. I had the fish and chips. They used walleye in place of cod or some other plain fish and was maybe the best fish and chips I've ever had. My wife had the chicken salad sandwich. ˆ had a bite and weas blown away by the taste.

Prices were on par with other reataurants and brew pubs in AA. But if you want great food, then certainly check it out. The beer...average at best.

Their motto might as well be ‘Come here for the service, stay for the service’… because the food wasn’t cutting it and the beers are nothing to get excited about. But the servers were across the board fantastic.

I don’t usually order food when I go out to beer bars and I wonder how much that would change my experience. This time was an exception. I ordered the mushroom burger and received a gummy, mushy mushroom patty---not a serving of sautéed mushrooms, or grilled portabellas, as I had pictured. The fries come at an extra charge, and the pickle was sclerotic. Whether it was a house made picked or not it tasted processed.

Tried this establishment on a recent trip to Ann Arbor; what a disappointment. First impressions are said to be everything and our bartender's attitude set the tone. We only stayed for one beer because to the service. My selection the Bear Paw Stout was good, but not great. The Chicken Quesadillas were tasty and portion size adequate. There are a number of much better places in Ann Arbor to enjoy a beer and it's obvious the locals know this because the Grizzly Bear was empty (on a Saturday afternoon) and the other places packed.
