This is one of my favorite bars in Ann Arbor. As an undergraduate in a fraternity most of my buddies like the louder party-like atmosphere of Rick's, Good Time Charley's, 5th Quarter etc. I don't really like slamming pitchers of Natty Light though, and I'd much rather enjoy a few pints here any night. It definitely has more of a grown up feel, more grad students and older customers are usually here than undergrads. Don't fool yourself into thinking this is just another college bar because its in a college town. I suppose it can get a little bit crazy sometimes on the weekend, but it's nothing compared to the aforementioned bars. Haha now that I think of it one my old GSIs used to old his office hours here...he was a pretty cool guy.

Anyways the selection is great and is frequently changing and the beer menu is extremely descriptive. 70ish beers on tap and 50+ bottles. One cool thing they do here is the world beer tour, giving you free stuff for trying more beers. I use it as a good excuse to try beers that are new to me. The food is pretty good, especially for bar food. Definitely not fine dining, but very tasty stuff. Pub fare done right in my opinion. As has been mentioned the service is really my only gripe. That being said I usually go to Ashley's to relax so the sometimes slow service doesn't bother me a whole lot. If it's busy just order your next beer while your still working your current one. With luck it will show up by the time you are done. (1,477 characters)

Ashley's is a classic in the area. Always has many great offerings on tap. Food is good, friendly helpful staff and a really great atmosphere to have a beer or two and relax. There may be newer dogs moving into town but Ashley's in an Ann Arbor mainstay. Don't count them out! (276 characters)

Great spot for the craft beer junkie, only knock from my perspective is location - basically center of UM campus makes getting around, parking, and overall crowd in the bar a little too cramped for me. Have had great service on every occasion, the taplist is usually ridiculous, and the food variety is extensive and tasty. Must stop place if in the area. (357 characters)
