Hard to miss location right across from the Diag. and a busy part of town. Cozy, dark, narrow place with lots of old wood and sticky tables can accomadate more customers than you would guess. Medium-sized bar showcases close to 100 tap handles. There are 2 or 3 chalkboards that list rotating tap choices and specials. I love these boards as the rotating taps are always changing and the choices are typically excellent (i.e. Bell's Hopslam, Founders Strong Ale, Kuhnhenn Nine, Rogue Imperial Pilsner, Stone Oaked AB, etc.). The "permanent" beer menu is big and well put together with nice descriptions and categorizations. I've had many pints and bottles here and I have yet to have an infected, old, or stale one. Impressive considering the number of choices they have, and it also says something about the volume of business they do. Service is friendly and the beer knowledge, though it varies from server to server, is pretty good. They will let you sample anything before buying too! Most beers come in Shaker glasses, but they bring out the tulips for stronger Belgians. In my opinion they could improve upon this. The place can get a bit smoky, so I try to avoid busy times (lunch and early evening 4-6 pm are good and during happy hour every beer is a buck off). Food is average pub fare with the Stilton fries being exceptional, especially with a nice barleywine! (1,373 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)
