    Smash burger overdone, chicken sandwich over cooked. Very dry. Cookie dessert was way over done. Staffed by college kids, they don’t really know how to make most popular cocktails. Our server Kutura was great, ambience and service made for a good overall visit.

    Worst dining experience ever. Started with no lobster rolls or anything with lobster. We made reservations for lobsterfest a week ahead of time, so they should of gaged lobster and staff. Qr codes didn't work with no backup menus for drinks. Waited a long time for our beers because the bartender was also the manager, and she was busy most often, probably for complaints. We ordered fish and chips which were really fish sticks and overcooked, along with fries that were under the warmer for a long time. Coleslaw was not edible, looked very old. Waited a long time for everything. Our server was apologized, the manager did not. Never going back and canceled our reservations for next weekend.

    We heard that’s Lobster Fest was a fun annual event at Ashley’s so we made a reservation. We were a table of three seated among some larger tables who were having a blast—their server kept replacing their empty plates with more lobsters! All the tables had large plastic buckets on them for the shells and discarded pieces. Most people wore bibs. There was a fun drink list designed to pair with lobster, the music was great, our server was very attentive, and the lobster was delicious! Ashley’s doesn’t disappoint!!

    Waitress was good but…Out of poutine, out of hangar steak, beer was room temp, had a reservation and seated way back dingy corner despite same size tables available up front, lobster fine but pricing is poor, $28 for 1st, $20 for 2nd and $42 for 3rd. Last lobster fest for us.

    Our server was very slow, it took her about 20 minutes to come and take our drink order. When we were talking to her, she seemed very rushed and uninterested in her tone of voice. Our table ordered one soft drink and it took 12 minutes for it to come to the table. It was not very busy either. The food was served and my eggs Benedict came out as 2 hard boiled eggs, assuming because the food was sitting back there for so long... and our waitress was not the one to even serve us the food. Overall, just had a bad experience and will not be returning.

    Extremely rude waitress. They are understaffed, and the man at the front made sure we were aware of that—he was very nice and we understood. The waitress expressed many frustrations over the staffing issue to our party, however, unlike the man up front, her attitude towards it was not professional at all.

    They literally did not have at least 5 things we tried order- steak main dish, steak salad, nachos, 2 different drinks. We then waited 90 minutes for our food (although we did get a dish of Mac and cheese - which was delicious- 30 minutes before the rest of our order. We did enjoy the food when it finally came.

    No only were we left in the front of the bar for over 10 minutes waiting for someone who greet us so I could explain I have a reservation, but the sole reason I chose Ashley’s before my graduation (the mac&cheese) was not available. After 6 of the people in our party being forced to reconfigure their orders, replacements came with missing toppings/sides/buns/key components and we were never told other items were out. The pizza was terrible and crusted, almost everything else cold or ill proportioned. I’ve never been so disappointed in an Ann Arbor establishment, especially when I was trying to show my family from the south a local spot. Deciding to try to come back a couple days later to get some mac & cheese ended up with being verbally assaulted and asked to leave by the waitress when I was laughing over how crazy it was she forgot to put in 2/3 of our order and simply brought out 2 appetizer mac & cheese, after an hour of waiting on those, a full classic size mac & cheese, a sandwich and a burger which were never even put in as orders. She also had the audacity to continue the dramatics, involving her customers at the bar who were extremely disrespectful and rude to my family as we were leaving, with no positions ever taken by the staff to correct the order or apologize for what was happening. Honestly this was one of the worst experiences of my life and I’m still in shock it could’ve happened here on my last day in this city after 4 years of pleasant dining experiences literally everywhere but here.

    Busy night, Good food and environment. Wait staff was great! Only issue is that the kitchen seemed overwhelmed with number of orders, so food orders were slow or missed, to include any customer changes to the standard fare. So service, due to the kitchen, was a bit lackluster. No fault of the waitstaff.

    At first they couldn’t find our reservation. We really didn’t need one on a Sunday afternoon. Took a while to get our drinks. One of the soft drinks was nothing but soda water but we were able to get a new pop. Then we placed our order for appetizers. Then it seemed everything we tried to order they were out of. No cod for fish and chips, no pulled pork nachos, no Philly cheesesteaks, no Mac N Cheese (except for one order), no prosciutto for the pizza we ordered. To say the least we were pretty disappointed. Took my family out to be together for a birthday. All our food came out together (appetizers and entrees). The food we ended up getting was good after going through the menu 3 times to find something in stock.

    1st and foremost I’d like to say that this was 1 of the most degrading and upsetting experiences I’ve had in a while. It took an hour for the waitress to even come back after we were sat down. Once she came back I was told that the item I ordered was not available. Really? After, an hour of waiting. So I chose something else. Let’s not forget the appetizer took an hour to come out… The food was cold. We were given plastic, yes I said plastic silverware and told that they “ran out”. There was an empty table right next to us with clean silverware… Were we not worth getting clean silverware? Luckily another waitress came by and we asked her to give us silverware. Remember the “unavailable item” that I couldn’t order? Well it was on the bill when we got it. Safe to say, we’ll never go back there. Fin.
