We had a great meal here. The service was great and the spacing of the tables made eating inside feel very comfortable

Very rude staff when I brought my puppy to the outside patio. They made us sit at a crooked table far outside the main patio, secluded from the rest of the guests. Ann Arbor is usually very dog friendly and this was surprising. The staff were not accommodating and seemed shocked that we brought a dog to their outside patio (which is just concrete). I won’t be going back here, with or without a dog.

Appreciate all the staff is doing to support the option to eat outdoors in the beer garden despite the changing weather. Also appreciate the range of specials, food has been much better these last few months than pre-COVID.

Waitress recommend the specials. It was the worst meal I have had. Took I e bite and sent it back. Replaced the BBQ quesadilla with a pizza and the pizza was much better. Overall nothing to really write home about. The beer selection was wide but nothing that you can't really get at any other restaurant in the A2 area.

The Session room patio is the only restaurant I feel safe going to during this pandemic. They do a great job, and the food and beer are also top notch.

We ate outside. We were given a great choice of seats so we could sit in the shade. We had our favorite server Rachel who is always friendly and attentive. They are getting much better with their soups, the pork and bean soup was great.

Sessions Room is staying on top of Covid safety while serving great pub food. I tried the ginger tuna salad and I now have a new favorite. Keep up the good work. Also hat’s off to your servers. They are fantastic!

Even during COVID the Session Room is doing what it does best; cold drinks and delicious food. The patio was nice and socially distanced (although the interior also looked like they'd spaced everyone out nicely too). Staff had on PPE and was attentive, friendly and timely. We had salads, pizzas (the Zah!) and beers that were all generous and delicious! Overall excellent evening that felt like almost the good ol days.

Great social distancing at the outdoor tables. Good fish tacos but would’ve liked a side of tortilla chips or something.

There is a ton of outdoor space with larger tables that can easily seat groups of 6-8, with plenty of space between tables to distance. There is soft nighttime lighting both inside and outside, and the extensive beer/ cider menu is great.

We had a great time and the staff was lovely. We had a minor spill because the picnic tables on the grass are a bit wobbly. When I got up it caused our glass to spill. So be careful if sitting in that area with drinks!

I really enjoy the back patio. Tables are nicely distanced. Atmosphere is relaxed. I think the food has improved over time. We had the nachos, beef sliders, and chicken tacos. All were great. Wonderful server.

Their system of ordering is great - they have a QR code you scan on the table. I used my standard iPhone camera app and got a push notification that took me right to their online website. The waitress then came around to get orders, but you could also add things to your cart which was helpful since I was getting a flight. They were strict about wearing masks, which I appreciated, and the outdoor space was nice and had good distance between tables. I felt it was a safe experience, and of course the food and drinks are delicious.

The outside patio is the place to be. Tables are placed at appropriate distances from each other and provide umbrellas for shade. Our server was friendly and attentive. She was there when we needed and not when we didn't.

A very nice Sunday evening burger and beer (OK 2 beers) outside at The Session Room. Very quiet at the moment but hopefully the clientele will return. Burger was good and beers were great.

My family came back a week after the re opening after the covid shutdown. We had a brand new waiter who gave us the menu. We noticed our favorite buffalo chicken pizza was off so decided to order the za. When we told him what we wanted he said, “we are short staffed so we arent doing pizzas tonight.” So that left our girls with sandwiches and salads as the choices when they were pumped for pizza. We were pretty bummed. We love the session room and so do our daughters. We are going to give it a month and try again and hopefully they will have a more consistent menu or at least give us a heads up before us thinking we have access to the whole menu.

Session room has opened both inside and out. Outside is spacious and well sanitized. Their real calling card is their pizza but everything else is good as well. The staff is super friendly and attentive.

We ate outside and the only issue was that my husband's tacos were not even warm...just ambient temp outside.
