    Great food and friendly service. Enjoyed the options on the cocktail menu - recommend the (Joel Style) Jasmine. My husband ordered the Steak Poutine and I got a burger; both delicious. We finished with a brownie sundae - it was ok; prefer the bread pudding.

    I will have to try them again another time to try the dinner options. We went during brunch and they didn’t have a full menu available. The fried green tomatoes had no flavor. The breading wasn’t seasoned and the balsamic glaze added nothing to it either. I had to ask for a side of remulade sauce to at least get some flavor. Wouldn’t order again. Fish and chips wasn’t my thing either too much breading and seasoning overpowered the fish. The chips underneath lacked salt. A friend had chicken and waffles and said it was good and the waffle was good as well. Overall wasn’t bad but definitely would try dinner menu. The service was good the waitress very attentive.

    Location was tucked in the corner of a nondescript strip plaza in Crofton, Once we walked in the environment changed to a cool, calm, perfectly lit bar/ dinning room . Greeted 3 times by staff from the front door to the table, had water and wine within 10 minutes and food within 20! Staff is very young but competent and caring non the less. Food was attractive and well prepared and priced appropriately, some might say high but the quality was there and I thought well worth the price. I will be back to this little gem of a restaurant!

    Where do I start? Well, this was the second dining venture to the very popular Ashling Kitchen & Bar that I’ve had with my son, whereby I always have a glass of the Red Sangria as soon as I am seated. Given our past visit, we decided to order and thoroughly enjoyed the Roasted Brussel Sprout appetizer, along with the our main entrees - Elton’s Fish & Chips, and the Grilled Salmon BLT served with the scrumptious Sweet Potato Fries!! Our waiter, Caroline, was very attentive and personable - she provided exceptional customer service! Thanks for making our dining experience awesome….we’ll be back again soon! Best, NH

    You ever find a spot and don't really want to share it because it's so good. I've been probably 5 or 6 times since initially visiting this Crofton jewel. I love the neighborhood family feel, the around the world monthly features that NEVER disappoint and the bartenders who love to let you explore the menu. Only thing left is to try the new brunch offerings. Definitely worth 5+ stars...Ashling hasn't disappointed once!

    Crabcakes were not worth $44. I was expecting more meat, less breading. That also applies to the crad dip. WHERE'S THE MEAT 🤔?! The water was wet and cold.

    We’ve visited Ashling’s several times, and they are our most favorite restaurant (of this type) in the Greater Annapolis / Baltimore area. This visit was less that stellar (as indicated by the 3 Star rating). We were placed at a small table near the door, when there were several bigger tables available. After discussions, however, the Manager moved us and we were content with our placement. The food was not as good as usual . . . we’ve visited during their “Tours” where they offer cuisine from other regions (Germany, Ukraine, etc.). Brazil’s offering was not too interesting . . . mostly sausage (I didn’t know kielbasa was common in Brazil) and the plantain ships were like leather. Overall, the meal was fine (I’m generally an easy target). They did remove our favorite starter – a baked shrimp dish (crisp shrimp, lots of roasted tomatoes, cheesy yumminess) – and now offer it as a pasta entre. In its place they offer “tempura shrimp” . . . first, the batter was NOT tempura, and as a substitute for the previous it was meager. We did finish it (again, I’m a soft target). A conversation with the Manager, and it’s possible the baked shrimp starter will re-appear. Overall, Ashling’s will continue as a favorite, and we’ll book there again enthusiastically. We are hopeful our next experience will again be 5 Star-worthy!

    I arrived 5 minutes early for my reservation. I had to wait over 10mins to be seated. The ceiling was leaking where we were seated at. I immediately told our waitress. She made no sense of urgency to move our seat as water kept drippingon me. Once we were moved we placed our order. My man ordered mussels they we out. He ordered a crab meal. She left to put our order in to come back and say they are out of crab meat. He then ordered salmon to be told the we all out of seafood. It was very disappointing. He was his birthday dinner for him to end up orders chicken sandwich of which he was no pleased with was an embarrassment for me. I surprised him with a dinner at a restaurant he wasn't able to have a special dinner. I made a notation on my reservation that it was a special birthday. They did not acknowledge that. Needless to say I will not be returning. I paid $82 for a meal that wasn't worth $30. I had high hope yet received a bigger let down.

    I ordered the jerk chicken and coconut rice. The jerk chicken was undercooked and bloody. The rice was very dry and the flavor very overpowering. The manager took off the item from my bill, but the waitress stated that she had to “fight” for him to take it off the bill because the food had been eaten. The food was touched but he stated did we need a box to take the food home. The food was not worth taking home or salvage. My mom did like her salmon BLT. The Rasta pasta that my niece had was spicy but not flavorful.

    First time trying them out for brunch and I wasn't disappointed. Portion sizes were generous and chef was open to accommodating to a few minor changes for a couple picky eaters in my party. The service was excellent: very friendly, knowledgeable and fast. Price + taste = outstanding meal. I will be back again very soon for lunch/dinner.

    The crab dip wasn’t as tasteful as it looked. It had a very strong vinegar taste. Just about everyone around us was sending food back because it was to salty. Though what we received was good our expectation was higher then what we received. It wasn’t horrible but it could have been better. Maybe it was just a challenging night in the kitchen.

    Ashling Kitchen was delicious! I had the Southern Seafood Gumbo. The Gumbo was tasty, spicy, and meaty (sausage, shrimp, crawfish, crab). Only minor complaint was the fried okra—it probably had been sitting too long so it was hard, almost tough but I just pushed that to the side. I’d get the gumbo again regardless—very good meal. Husband got the Fish and Chips w/ coleslaw. It was a huge piece of fish, nicely breaded and seasoned. He enjoyed his meal too. We took an order of the white chocolate banana bread pudding w/ ice cream home. It was good, wasn’t overly sweet and was more like a really moist banana bread, didn’t really taste any white chocolate. Atmosphere was rustic chic. It was extremely loud inside…no barriers between bar area and rest of restaurant so noise traveled. Service was great—prompt and friendly. Meals were reasonably priced and portion sizes were large. I will definitely return.
