We have been going to the Session Room for years. Never disappoints (other than when certain beers are available for growler). Food always consistent and good. Amazing beer selection. Highly recommend.

My friends and I come here regularly. My wife and I usually opt for the Bobo Burger. It never disappoints. Pizza is good too. Waitstaff has always been friendly and attentive. It’s one of our favorites on the West Side.

Wish it was more kid friendly. Our server was not very happy to be there. Table was dirty when they sat us down. We usually have a great experience when my wife and I go on date nights.

Great service, safety considered with outdoor picnic tables and heat lamps (we reserved one, which was so nice), great beer selection and comfy food. Overall a great place to get together with a couple friends as weather starts to warm up.

When we had dinner, Jordan was our Server. He was very personable, and gave excellent suggestions. He was knowledgable and courteous in every way. He made our experience very enjoyable, so much so, that we lost track of time and missed a Zoom meeting that my boyfriend was supposed to attend LOL Thank you for a lovely experience.

Our waiter was great. The girl that bought us our drinks never acknowledge us or said a word. She basically just slammed the drinks on the table and left.

Outdoor seating isn't covered or very warm but the wait staff hustled and really tried to be cheerful and friendly. We enjoyed our food and drinks. It was great just to get out of the house for a meal. Three of us had the "Mississippi," a pulled pork sandwich, which was decent enough. The menu is limited, understandably, because of COVID and how few guests the restaurant is able to serve. The restaurant is abiding by the rules and doing their best in these trying times! I would go back.

Unfortunately, I cannot give an experience. I made this reservation for an anniversary with our in-laws. Upon arriving there was a sign outside that said the restaurant was closed for veterans day. My question is, why was I allowed to make a reservation for a date where it was not open?
Had to figure something out last minute which was not very convenient.

We reserved a table outside and it was advertised as heated and lit but we got put at a table in the corner with no lighting and no heater even close to us. I was cold and couldn’t see my food.

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.
