Have visited Grizzly Peak several times, primarily for dinner.

Food - Grizzly Peak's menu reminds me of a combination of typical pub food crossed with a high quality bistro restaurant. I have enjoyed everything I have ever eaten here; from the Hangar Steak to the Cheddar and Ale Soup, to the Polenta Fries, the food is quite delicious. While I wouldn't describe the food prices as cheap, they are comparable to many of the other restaurants in downtown Ann Arbor.

Beer - Grizzly Peak typically offers 5 of their regular beers plus 2 or 3 seasonal/specialty beers as well(including 2 on Cask). While I haven't tried every beer available, the ones I have had were quite tasty, although nothing too spectacular (think a solid B). I was particularly fond of their White Christmas White Ale though.

Atmosphere - Service was acceptable, but be warned this place can be quite packed so you might want to make a reservation. The restaurant itself can be really loud while the actual building gives off a rustic vibe with lots of wood everywhere.

Overall - A solid BrewPub in Ann Arbor. The beer's pretty good, the food and atmosphere are even better.

Another cool spot on the streets of Ann Arbor. I wish they had a better beer selection. Wasn't impressed with their in house IPA or their Sour Wheat Ale either. Cool outdoor patio area we were able to bring our dogs and sit under the sun. They even have a doggy treat menu.

This was like a second home to me, and I can't say enough good things about the staff here. Great food and a menu that changes often to go with a hand full of great beers. Always have a couple casks conditioned beers available and they have rotating beers probably every week if not every couple of days.

The food we didn't really eat, we just had an appetizer which were soft pretzels, the pretzels were nice and soft but the sauce was not good at all but luckily their Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard saved it, the beer selection was small but not too bad though. I had a Bear Paw Porter which was really good it had hints of Roasted Coffee beans and Hazelnut I then had the County Cork Irish Stout. This is a very watered down version of a Stout. It was not good in fact I don't even want to finish hut I don't waste beer. The service was quiet but they brought our food and beer on a timely manner. Don't know if I would go here again because the beer didn't meet my standards.
