Went to Ashley's while on vacation. Excellent ice cream, good size scoops. Pricey but real ice cream so worth it in my opinion. My complaint is the service. Clearly staffed by teenagers, we couldn't get to the counter to order because all of their friends were just hanging out. Once we got to the counter we had to wait for... More

Ashley's makes delicious, homemade ice cream. We go here about 1-2x a month. Always great service. The only reason for 4 stars is that it's pricey (expect to spend about $10 for 2 ice creams) and their flavors are really inconsistent. Sometimes they have several flavors if want to buy and other times I'm disappointed by their selection. Their standby... More

I went to Ashley's for the first time a few days ago to treat myself and two friends to ice cream. Bought a child's size and two regular size cups of ice cream (which would likely be considered "small" size at any other ice cream shop) and the total price came to $15 and change. These were not even elaborate... More

The ice cream is delicious but there are no rest room facilities. This is a big issue - ice cream cones and unwashed hands do not go together. Also, it is a problem if you go there with young children and they need to go to the bathroom. A new location is in order.

We've been to both the Guilford and Madison locations and prefer the Madison one because its usually less crowded. The ice cream is delicious and there are many favors to choose from --- they'll give you a taste if you ask for one. It's a bit pricey, but worth it for such a wonderful great.

I actually went to the Madison location. The ice cream was excellent. But the service was a bit shoddy. As I waited to be served a family came along. The gal turned to them and filled their order while I waited for all 4 of them to decide what they wanted. Then I went back to purchase a gift certificate.... More
