Sessions is a wonderful addition to the west side of town. Large, open seating with lots of TV's for viewing your favorite sports team. We enjoy going on Saturday afternoons and watching college football. Wings and pizza are both very good. Has an energetic vibe, tall ceilings, brick walls with some communal tables and large booths. Definitely worth a try if you haven't been there.

This is a great location for beer and bar food. Many TVs so we could easily watch UM football from all seats. Although there are guests in all age ranges I think of this venue as more for the family and less for the college student. The nachos with chicken are excellent. So are the salads and sandwiches. There are dozens and dozens of beers on tap but they also offer wine and cocktails. Parking is free.

Two of us got burgers which were great. Two of us got entrees which were tasteless and overcooked. We told our waitress, when she came to clear the plates and saw that some of each entree was left, that they weren't good. She apologized but didn't bring the manager over and basically forgot about it. We'll never go back. There are too many great restaurants in Ann Arbor to try.

We went to try something new. The beer selection was great. the nachos were very disappointing. the chips were on the edge of being stale or exposed to too much humidity. and they were broken up pretty small - like the broken pieces at the end of the bag. We ended up eating the nachos with forks since you could not really eat with your hands due to small pieces and the since the type of cheese applied did not hold the toppings together on the chips like a classic cheese would when heated. plus there was barely any cheese (it was a cold queso type cheese). We asked for more and the waitress did give us a good size amount in a bowl. This queso cheese was warm which made it taste better. the burger itself was good but i would really like to have french fries with my burger. I was told this was not a option since there is no fryer. I think the price of the burger is a little high for just coming with chips.

Food (ribs/special-of-the-day, spinach-artichoke dip, sandwiches, pumpkin cheesecake), wine/beer, service were great. Lively casual restaurant. 35 year old “birthday boy” in our group chose it & loved it. Oldest members of our group had some trouble hearing each other.

The Session Room was a nice option for an away game. Great beer list and good food, portions are smaller, but they have more creativity than some. Solid overall, just maybe you want to order a salad along with your sandwich type deal.

Very good food where anyone can find a dish. Bartender was excellent. Helped me get a quick app for my starving teens while we waiting. Sat us 15 min early. Server was attentive. My only complaint is it took forever to get the food. It was busy but not busy enough to take 35-40 minutes to get our food at 8:45pm.

Service was late and coverage of our section was lost in a shift change. BUT the service eventually was assigned and did a great job. Beer selection is good (with good rotation of taps month to month. Food is a bit hit or miss. But the hits are great. Good atmosphere for a local brew pub. Good value. Definitely worth a try - it won’t disappoint.

Excellent food and service. I did not give it five stars because the restaurant is too noisy to have an easy conversation. I even asked for a quiet table when I made the reservation. I won’t be going back with a large group, although for four people, they do have tables is less noisy parts of the restaurant.

Great place as long as you like beer! Decent food; e.g. tasty BLT Salmon Sandwich and cheese pizza. No kids’ menu but you can improvise. Extremely loud (“energetic”) because of the acoustics - it is an old warehouse after all.
If you’re a millennial or a genx-er Sessions is right up your alley. If you’re a baby boomer who’s not a huge beer fan? Not so much.

Our waitress was kind and knowledgeable. We had a large group and she was sufficient. Only down fall was the lack of a kid menu. Its definitely geared more toward adults. We also were charged a desert fee of $25.00 for using the plates and silverware for the birthday cake, which I thought was a bit ridiculous since the party was large and generous gratuity was given. Overall it was OK and food was pretty good.

This was my first time. I loved the ambiance and food and drink. But it took far too long - 2.5 hours - to have dinner for a group of 10. Both appetizers and mains took forever to arrive, and getting the bill was very slow as well. I wouldn’t go again with a large group unless we were prepared for a long night out.

We were a party of 8 and sat outside. Great atmosphere and music. Not as noisy as inside. Nice variety of beer, although they were out of a number of them. Given how busy they were, service was pretty good, a bit slow. Most of the food was good. I'd go back for the atmosphere (outside) and the drinks, not necessarily the food.

Great, super tasty wood fired pizza, delicious artichoke dip, diverse beer list. Options like cider and mead were appreciated. The kale salad could use a little work (lacinato kale is too heavy and bitter). Chicken wings were meaty and tasty sauces too. Also would love to see a few more GF options. I have to eat GF so I had the salmon sandwich and asked them to do it in a lettuce wrap. It was delicious!!
Great for casual group celebrations and parties.
