Jolly Pumpkin is located along the shores of West Grand Traverse Bay on Old Mission Peninsula. Fondly remembered as Bowers Harbor Inn, the estate is also home to Mission Table Restaurant and Tasting Room and The Peninsula Room event space.
Jolly Pumpkin’s menu features artisan pizzas, wood fired entrées, unique sandwiches and fresh salads. Along with their namesake Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales, they also serve Old Mission Beer Company brews made on-site, North Peak beers, Civilized Spirits and Bonafide Wines. Jolly Pumpkin’s inspiration comes from their Northern Michigan heritage and the culinary team strives to always use fresh ingredients and products from local farmers and fisherman when possible.
Jolly Pumpkin owners, Jon Carlson and Greg Lobdell both grew up on Old Mission and share fond memories of their childhood on the peninsula. “It was an absolutely magical place to grow up and to go to school. It was the best environment and had the best teachers. Old Mission would not be the same without a school on it.”
