Large heated patio opening April 1(weather permitting) . Expanded outdoor seating Thursday through Sunday. Outdoor tables can not be reserved (due to weather variability) but reservations can be sat outside if space is available. You may make special requests for outside tables.

Our tradition has been to celebrate the simple pleasures of life...
Good food - Good drink - Good friends!

We have traversed the continents to bring you a world class selection of beer and ale, from arcane fruit beers of Flanders, wheat ales from Germany, plus the finest craft micro-brew beers of the US and Michigan breweries.

But Ashley's is more than great beer, we also have one of the finest whiskey selections you will find with many single barrel selections available plus whiskeys from long closed distilleries.

There is always something new to try and explore.

    Great job accommodating our large group of 13, service was good, food came out quickly, out of a couple menu items, and a couple people mentioned dishes were brought out and were a bit cool (maybe from waiting on other food to be ready) overall very good experience and we’ll be back.

    The service was great, but the food was not very good. I ordered the famous Bomb Chicken sandwich and only ate a few bites. The chicken was over cooked, dry, and grizzled. We spicy waffle fries were not spicy and the pesto fries were avg at best. The beer flights were great! Good selection of beers and our server easily swapped out the beers we didn’t want with her favorites. We enjoyed our time in Ashley’s, but wish the food had been prepared better.

    The Chicken Bomb sandwich was AWFUL and INEDIBLE. I could barely cut it in half if was so dry and wrong. It was very difficult to chew and swallow. Upon further investigation the cut of chicken was discolored and gross. I sent the sandwich back to the kitchen for a refund. My date's pizza was among the worst we've ever had. I will never return. I just can't. Also, if busy, the seating is tight and on unpadded, mostly uncomfortable, wooden chairs. This establishment should be your ultra-last choice for food.

    Got there for our 11:30 reservation and the door was still locked until about 11:40, so that was a confusing start. Service was very, very slow but it also appeared our server was on her own on a basketball game day where it went from one table (us) to about 15 very quickly. So either they planned very poorly or are short staffed. When things finally came they were good, and it seemed like she did the best she could for being by herself.

    Reserved high top seating for 6 but got regular table. Tables are very close making it difficult to not only sit but if you have to get up, good luck. Food definitely average at best (probably below). Service… waiter was fairly attentive but forgetful. Not sure if it was waiter or bar personnel but getting a drink was an event. Most likely would not go back…

    The service was horrible. We were sat at a table that literally had no room. The table was touching all of our ribs. The food, a sandwich and a pizza took an hour to come out. Nobody stopped by for an explanation or apology. I will never go back.

    Let me preface this review by saying we've been to Ashley's before and always had a positive experience. Our recent dinner was marred by one of the worst waitstaff experiences we've ever had anywhere. Our waiter was indifferent, slow, never checked on us or apologized. He was also unfamiliar with the food or beer menus. Our appetizer arrived over an hour and half after we ordered it. Our food, when it finally came out two hours after our reservation, was lukewarm. There was no apparent shortage of staff and tables seated after us received their food before we did. Good thing we were with friends and had plenty to talk about. But a two-hour and 20 minute dinner was not what we had in mind. The waiter was quick to bring the bill which is not surprising as there weren't very many people left in the restaurant at that point!

    Overall, the experience was poor. The service was incredibly slow and aloof. All the food items were missing something when they came out. For example, the chicken was missing from the chicken salad. While I have compassion for staff and restaurants, it was simply not a good experience.

    Went twice on consecutive days Ona short break in Ann Arbor. First meal was superb but fries cold! Everything else great… second day, wrong pizza made and no dough left to remake! 1st pint of beer was warm and flat! Exchanged with no problem though. Overall, a great bar and friendly staff… just a shame our food wasn’t 100%

    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!!
