The Double Cheeseburger was one of the better burgers we’ve ever had — outstanding, and highly recommended. My wife had the Tangled Up in Blue mixed drink, which was excellent on a hot night. We all loved the fried green tomatoes. Very attentive service — overall a great experience.

Enjoyed lunch with a friend. I had reservations and we arrived a few minutes early. Hostess saw I had a large picture album. Instinctively seated us at a four person table. She thought we might need the extra room???????????? WOW. So impressed. Food was very tasty. Had grilled chicken. Our waitress was very attentive. Highly recommend for lunch.

The food was pretty good. The burger was basically a standard burger; however, it was displayed on the menu like it must be special - it wasn’t really. The meatless main was delicious. The outside patio had potential but was kind of boring - Starbucks has more ambience. Would love to see a better outdoor patio and a few more appetizer options.

Our dining experience at Ash on Friday, June 7 was absolutely one of the best meals we have had in a long time. My wife had the filet and I had the grilled porterhouse pork t-bone. The flavor was spot on and the value is unmatched by any restaurant that we’ve experienced. We eat out a lot and the chef at Ash is to be commended. We give our experience a two thumbs up!!!

A neighborhood gem, tucked away in West Homewood. Reserved on the OpenTable app for a Thursday night and were given really only one or two dining options 8 o’clock or 815… However there were tables available. In other words, don’t be discouraged by the limited options.Food and service was awesome.

Ash is a bit loud, but the service is good and the food is excellent.

The food was good but the menu was extremely limited (only two appetizers) and entrees were not very filling. The atmosphere was definitely not what I expected, very open and cold and uncomfortable.

Compliments to the chef. The menu is small, but our choices of the lamb dish and pork dish were excellent. The prices are reasonable and the portions just the right size. Some bread would have been a nice touch. Will definitely be going back.

I have had several opportunities to enjoy a meal at Ash, and each one seems to be better than the last. Their rotating menu always seems to have 2-3 things I can’t wait to try and their execution never disappoints. I am thrilled to have this gem in Homewood and wish them many years of success!

Met some senior girlfriends for an early dinner on Tuesday evening. It was my first time. Great location and easy to find. It was only 5 pm so the place was empty but we were seated immediately. Nice wine menu but only Pepsi products. YUCK. Little confusion with my order but it was quickly fixed. Menus was nice. Lots of appealing entrees. Since I don't care for carrot puree, I ended up with faro and grilled chicken tenders. It was very tasty and the portion was just the right size. I enjoyed my meal. I will say there were a large number of little kids and families. Lots of noise and running which you expect from young kids. I would definitely eat here again. Pricing was very reasonable.

The Brussel spouts are a must!! The food is fresh and delicious! It is a tad bit loud when it’s busy between people having conversations and the music so if you’re looking for a quiet evening to have deep conversations with your date, this isn’t necessarily the place for that but this is my second time eating here and it was better than the first.

The service was very good. Our server brought my husband and me our wine to enjoy while we waited on the rest of our party. The kitchen accommodated a member of our party who is gluten free by substituting Brussels sprouts for couscous I her meal. Several of us had burgers and they were delicious. It was a little loud for comfortable conversation around a table of 6. We will be back, however.

Fabulous experience! Olivia, our primary server, gave great suggestions, was attentive and a joy to interact with the whole evening. The appetizers, wine, entrees and dessert were top notch and a great value! The noise level did increase the longer we were there but not horrible. I would suggest dampening the front door closure; it was a bit distracting as customers came and went!

If someone that lives close by asked me where to go for a burger I would recommend it, otherwise not really. it's more of a local spot for a teenage or young family type crowd.

Ash's menu was predictable, plenty of other better options in town that do what Ash tries. Prices were high, especially if you want to sit in a diner booth. The bar program and especially the bartender was confused.

Was totally disappointed in the experience at Ash. I ordered the steak which came completely unseasoned and bland. The roasted potatoes were over cooked and tough. The service was completely unprofessional and unresponsive to all requests.
The room appeared as a Waffle House redo... very disappointed and will not return.

We had a wonderful experience at Ash and would highly recommend. I was able to get a reservation for 8 people on a Saturday night and that was the main reason that I chose this restaurant. We had a great table that easily accommodated our group. Our server was very attentive and offered some great suggestions. The menu changes regularly based on fresh ingredients available. We had wonderful appetizers - fried green tomatoes, brussel sprouts and nachos with butternut squash on them - yum! Everyone raved about their food. The pork shoulder with black eyed peas, turnips and collard greens was melt in your mouth good. The seasoning was perfect. Others at the table had the skirt steak and nothing was left on their plate. One person had the hamburger and said that it was also great. The only bad part was that we didn't have room for dessert. So we will have to go back soon. The portion size was perfect - not too much, not too little. And it was a great value for the quality of the menu.

We will definitely put Ash in our regular rotation of favorite restaurants.

First time visit to this new restaurant...nice smaller farm to table type menu. Service was very good...bit noisy when we were there since they do have larger tables. It will be fun to watch this restaurant grow...we will certainly revisit.
I posted the shrimp and grits....my husband had the hanger steak. Both were yummy.
The Christmas tree was beautiful! 🎄
