Ashland Hill is a fairly new beer and wine garden that recently opened its doors on Ashland and Main street in Santa Monica, CA. Chef Brad Miller, who is the prodigy behind Ox and Son (check out my review at http://www.thefoodseeker.com/2015/05/ox-son-santa-monica-ca-updated-review.html ), brings food and craft beers in a casual yet trendy atmosphere. There is a bar upon entering where you can sip the night away or if you much prefer, a very cool patio in the back. A simple menu formulated on a chalkboard is designed around seasonal ingredients and is Californian.

The restaurant is pretty darn busy during weekend brunch. Luckily, we arrived when it opened and by the time we left, the place was packed. The seating arrangement is to first order at the cashier, receive a number, and seat yourself. There isn't much service in that regards, which I think is smart for chef Miller. If you don't have exact change in cash, don't expect to receive your coins in return (they don't provide it and will round up your total bill). As for the food...well, it definitely could use some improvement in that department.
