328 W. Lane Ave. Columbus, OH (614) 294-4848
Just off the lobby in the newly remodeled Holiday Inn (the one down by that crazy new bridge) is a place to get some well-executed and very familiar food. Ashley's has your big salads, your club sandwiches, your Fish and Chips ($8.99) and the requisite soup and sandwich combo. They taste just like they should. The meticulous preparation of the staple fare at Ashley's inaudibly explains why we still find ruebens, chicken salad croissants and tuna melts on so many menus - they're delicious. Go on Tuesday or Thursday and you can get the stir-fry lunch buffet. Pick your ingredients from the buffet bar then watch as it is stir-fried right in front of you. It can't get much fresher, or tastier -- especially if you ask for the spicy Szechwan sauce.
Note: Ashley's is currently closed.
