Are you a bud light kind of person? Labatt blue? Then Ashley's is probably not for you.
If you want to try a variety of beers, or perhaps you don't really like alcohol that much but want a nice place to go, Ashley's is for you. Among their list of drinks (over 100 alcoholic beverages), they have a Framboise at 2.5% (which is good for those who aren't a huge fan of alcohol) and a Mead at 19% (which is good if you think 5% is not good enough). They have plenty of local beers and there's a blackboard as soon as you enter listing their list of rotating taps. They also have a lot of foreign beers to try and a lot of different samplers so you can get a taste of what they have to offer.
They get only 4 stars because their happy hour is nothing special compared to other campus bars and the service is decent. Also, the entrance/exit is annoying when they are busy, which seems like all the time. And, I can't imagine it being a good idea to have bathrooms down a flight of stairs for any bar. Their pizza is decent and their spinach dip thing is also really good.
If you go there a lot, they have a rewards program, which seems kind of fun if you are up to trying all the beers they have!
The first time I went to Bailey's was for a birthday party. It was after midnight, and I was starving. I didn't want to fill up on alcohol, and to my surprise the kitchen wasn't closed. The menu offered one of my favorites (Chicken Alfredo) and I was sold. I asked for broccoli, and it was delicious. Their Cookie dessert... so delicious. I usually get caramel instead of fudge, and it's even better! While later at night, their service isn't necessarily the best, during the day the service is prompt and great. The music is somewhat loud, but it's nothing that you wouldn't expect from a bar. Their dart boards are also very fun if you're not in the mood to shell out cash for pool.
While I'm not a big drinker or seafood eater, I was still rather pleased with my experience at this bar.
While the drinks seemed rather expensive, everyone seemed pleased with them.
I was tempted to try and share the surf and turf platter with my boyfriend, but we both ended up getting a diablo chicken sandwich. 2 orders of which were less than the one order of the surf and turf.
When I saw that the plate came with fries, I was expecting something like I had experienced at the Real Seafood Company... maybe 10 fries on the plate. When the plate was served, I was happy to see that the whole plate was COVERED with fries. As I was eating, I actually discovered a pickle buried underneath the fries. The sandwich was really satisfying and I couldn't even finish the fries.
I like the ambiance of the bar, but I don't really know if I'll ever go there again without the suggestion of someone else.
The price range really depends on how much of a drinker you are. For a sandwich and a soft drink you could easily spend less than $20.
I really like Buffalo Wild Wings. And I like Ferndale. But this location has never really treated me well.
One thing I don't like is that after 9pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the wings special end. Nine pm is a bit early. Other locations serve the specials til about 1:55am, so it definitely irks me.
And they always seem to be very busy at this one, so the wait is long. Then, this location gets very dark, it's sometimes hard to read the menu.
It has nice screens and decent food. But considering how far it is from me now, I'd much rather go to other BWWs.
This is more of a place for seeing people and being seen, I came to find. The service is mediocre the times I've been there, and of course, I wasn't drunk, so I actually noticed. The food wasn't anything I really wanted, and I doubt I'll ever go here again.
If you're someone who enjoys local "flavor," being in Detroit, and getting wasted, this is a place for you.
If you're a wallflower stuck with a large crowd of people, check out the art on the walls; the artwork tends to be more interesting than the conversations at the bar.
I used to frequent this place quite a bit because it was really close to my friend's old house. I don't know if we realized that there was a Pizza Hut down the street.
I guess she liked it enough to keep coming back. I was not too impressed. Their pizza is nothing to write home about. And while they do have 'free bread', it's rather unappealing. It's just normal sliced white bread that comes in sandwich baggies, you know not the fancy ziploc color seal ones. The ones you fold and such.
Pretty lame if you ask me.
I would give this place only one star, but last year I went to a party there, which was on the top floor. It was a pretty nice area for a party, and it was fun. I think it was catered from the restaurant, and the food that they had there was pretty good.
However, as a paying customer at the restaurant, I have never had anything special there.
It is pretty close to the Magic Bag though, so if you want to eat a pizza then go catch a show, then I guess this is a way you could go.
I'm docking another star, for the same reason I did for Relish. You're going to wait.
But it's so good. For $9, you can get a bucket of country fried chicken tenders and fries. Which is enough for three moderately hungry people or two hungry people.
Their fries are really good, the chicken is a little dry, but with ketchup ranch or bbq sauce, it's delicious.
I spent my own money here once, and it was a pretty good deal. My cousin and I ate and were incredibly full for only $13. It usually takes more than that at any of the fast food places.
When people think Denny's usually it's the only place that's open after midnight that isn't a bar and serves food. This location, however, is not a normal Denny's. Maybe because it's right next to the highway, or it's in Southfield, or well I don't know, but they are not open 24 hours.
When they are open, their service is incredibly poor and not worth it. Wendy's is nearby, I'd much rather go to them. Or even go to the Meijer across the street and get a Lean Cuisine.
I remember having the greasiest grilled cheese here. And half of my party throwing up almost immediately leaving this place.
It wasn't a great experience. I didn't care much for the food, but I give it an extra star because it is a 'landmark', and it's open to a variety of people.
That I enjoy. The food not so much.
Give me a Leo's Coney Island over this place any day of the week.
I am not a big drinker so I can't say much about the alcoholic beverages.
I love the stix mix or whatever they call it. It's so good. The service isn't always the greatest, but the company always is :)
Their happy hour specials are priced wonderfully and their food is really good.
I'm docking a star, because for having "pizza" in the title, their pizza is not that great.
Other things on the menu, however, are rather delicious.
Tonight, my beau and I got salads, and they were delicious. When a 'pizza place' has good salads, I'm always a huge fan. Sometimes cheesy greasy goodness is too much (or sometimes you make new years' resolutions about 'being healthy' and still end up at the pizza place).
Also, this location accepts EBT Cash. You know what sucks? Being poor.... What sucks even more, is when people look down on your poor ass. I approve of this business accepting EBT, and accepting it without shame.
Also, even if you're in a hurry, when you call, say, "Yes, I can hold." The 'Happy's Pizza' jingle is hilariously awesome.
The pizza is okay, their salads are nummy, and other things on their menus are sure to please. They have a good selection of desserts, including hand-held sweet potato pies that remind me of Cityfest. I really wanted to get one to see if it was the same deliciousness that I had last year... alas, resolutions... :(
Oh, and they have free wifi. I haven't used it yet; I think all the neon lighting might interfere.
This is by far the best Leo's I've been to. I've been to a bunch of Leo's and this had the best tomatoes I've ever had.
Usually, the tomatoes on the chicken fingers salad are soggy and gross. Here they were crispy delicious and fresh.
Another perk, for me at least, was that there were murals of beautiful sites not only in Greece but in Lebanon as well. It was really nice to see murals other than the Parthenon and what the other Leo's usually have.
They even had a 15% off for Ladies on Wednesdays. I definitely approve.
The reason why I'll give this place 4 stars is because for some reason, every time I go there, there is a parking spot open RIGHT in front of the door. I am a huge fan of that.
Their pitas and chicken fingers salad are my favorites, and the fact taht they're open 24 hours Thursday - Sunday is another perk.
Sometimes the crowd is a bit much, but it usually isn't as drunk or rowdy as the crowd in Royal Oak.
I haven't been here in a long time, but from what I remember is good. The food is great, and it's nicely sized. I almost always left with a box, and I can eat a lot in one sitting. I really liked the chicken that's glazed with huge broccoli and rice. So good.
I'll dock a star, just because I hate waiting in line for so long. Really, when you visit the Breeze Food Court, you're going to wait.
I've never paid for a meal at MGM Grand, because their players reward club is pretty great. Play around an hour, and you can get a meal comp.
For awhile, I was a "Crunch" girl. I didn't care to try anything else. However, after hearing my parents rave about how good the Turkey burgers were, and trying some of their yummy pickles, I decided to see for myself.
And it was worth it. Now, usually if you get a meal comp, you get $12 to spend at one Breeze location. This can be enough to feed two people if you spend wisely. If you get two meal comps, you can definitely feed 3 or more people. So I got a turkey burger, with bacon, fries and a drink. If I hadn't been starving, there would be no way I could finish it.
So if you're going to MGM Grand and the players club line isn't ridiculously long, nor are the lines at Breeze, I recommend getting some grub at this place.
Even if you have to pay for it out of pocket, it's worth your money.
Besides the late night dining option, this place is nothing special. I'm not a huge fan of dim sum and I am an incredibly picky eater... but every time I've come here the service has been lackluster. The food is okay.
My Chinese friends seem to like it, so I assume the food is rather authentic.
I prefer China King across the way compared to this place, but that's probably just me.
So I don't know if I should edit with a PS, or a prologue. I'm choosing the latter.
Went there tonight, and it was busy as usual. Sat in one of the very very tight carhop drive in things. Ordered my stuff, and then waited for the rollerskating carhop to give me my stuffs.
Was given my food, and experienced awkwardness as the carhop waited and explained that she accepts tips... which really means she 'expects' tips. I had NO idea that this was the case, and felt very dumb for only having three quarters, and paying with my credit card. She also told us that she'd check up on us, and get our trash.
Eat the fries first, because... that's the best. Then I open my sandwich package. I asked for a "number 9 with no cheese". I got a "number 4" (or something). It had cheese, mayo and NO bacon. I love bacon. I press the button, a different carhop comes and takes my sandwich. I tell her my order again, "number 9 with no cheese". She comes back with the sandwich, and then our main carhop comes and asks us how everything is, as I unwrap my sandwich. (Mind you my eating partner had long finished his meal by then... which left me rather unhappy, and envious). I see that there is gross american cheese on my sandwich, again! I inform the carhop, but tell her I'm too hungry to wait for them to fix my order.
It was kind of ridiculous. I'd give it one star based on this past visit, but the wheat bun was really good.
This place has been open for the past week or so, but it's been PACKED. i didn't care to deal with the absurdly long line to get fast food. Which is what it is... fast food.
It's nothing too spectacular. I went this morning around 7am and it wasn't busy. My cousin ordered lunch, and my mom and I got breakfast. That's the reason this place gets an extra star past "It's A-OK". I'm a big fan of places that let me eat breakfast and/or lunch anytime I want.
I ordered a number 13, I think. Which was like egg, on toast with bacon. It was enormous. I think they used up half a package of bacon for my sandwich. I thought I was going to die of a heart attack.
I'm not a huge fan of the ice that they use in beverages, but it didn't seem to melt as quickly into my pop like other fast food places. I'm hoping that this place's popularity will die down soon, so I can go try other things on the menu without the wait of a deep dish pizza from Chicago traveling by pigeon.
