Amazing beer selection (taps and bottle). Waitress was spot on with the beer, knowing exactly what choices to bring my boyfriend and I when we mentioned what we liked. She was also quick and friendly. Food is a little pricey and chainey, but does the trick (their sampler is nice since it holds all of my favorite pub food: jalapeno poppers and fried mushrooms!). The place is spaced out into different walled off sections so sound and ruckus is never overwhelming. They have a nice "frequent drinker" incentive card that I intend to fill up quickly!
i gave it an extra point on the overall for one reason: location. you are not going to find a better beer selection if you’re in westland. the overall ambiance was like a chain restaurant. a little cheesy, but their beer selection made up for it. they had some nice brews here and all of them seemed to be about $5. ordered a pizza which was decent. waitress looked like a chubby molly ringwald which was ok with me. i’ll definitely go back when i’m in the area.
Ashley’s is constantly changing up what micro-brews they are serving up, keeping things exciting. They have a wait staff that is enthusiastic about beer and will often give many samples to ensure you get an agreeable pint. A fun, family friendly joint. Good place to go to if a microbrewery is not near.
Excellent upgrade with the new bar and taps. All the major Michigan breweries were represented along with some midwest micros. Prices still a little high but no better place in the area to get some craft beer.
Added a second bar in May 2010 that expands the taps from 20 to 44. Ashley’s (Westland) is more a restaurant then it’s sister pub in Ann Arbor (the location was an Uno’s Chicago Grill before Ashley’s came in). Ashley’s menu is straight forward pub fare, however they do incorporate beer into some dishes and suggest great beer-food pairings. (Note: there are no Stilton fries at the Westland location; those delicacies are purely an Ann Arbor thing). Ashley’s Westland has 6 rotating taps to go along with their "regular" offerings and often does a Cask-conditioned "Firkin Friday". They also have festivals, tastings, beer reps, and other beer events on occasion. The Westland location seems to focus more on Michigan and American craft brewers rather than imports. The sister Ann Arbor location has much more in the way of imports (if imports are your thing). Staff is always friendly (we have yet to get bad service). A few of staff really know their beer. In shortest term, this is a pub for people who love beer.
