Ashley's has the atmosphere and character of an old bar across the street from a typical college campus. This is a good thing, since Ashley's IS an old bar across the street from the University of Michigan. I wouldn't recommend dropping anything on the floor of the men's restroom, but if you like to read drunken teenage slang you might enjoy a trip past the urinal.

The tap selection is great. They have lots of year-round Michigan beers available on tap, and there is a rotating list that brings in seasonals or specialty beers from breweries like: Kuhnhenn, Jolly Pumpkin, Dragonmead, Bell's... The list is a very solid representation of area beers.

We had lunch and enjoyed our food. The fries were as good as expected after reading the raves/awards about them on the wall. We sat at the bar and received good service. I will definitely be back here in the future when I'm back in the area.

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!

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.
