Our visit to Andy's last night was ruined by inconsiderate people yelling at the top of their voices, shrieking with loud laughter etc while the band were giving it their all on stage. At the end of each number and even at the end of the set many people carried on talking and didn't even have the courtesy to applaud.... More

We were looking for some early evening jazz and Andy's fit the bill. The first band was on from 5-9 which worked well for us. There was another band on for the later set. Cover was reasonable -$10.00. The place was busy. Good venue for music.

My wife and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary at Andy's yesterday; it was our first time going there. I love both good food and live music, so I did a google search to see if there were any restaurants that offered such a setting and Andy's popped up with overall good ratings. I made our reservation online (very simple/easy)... More

We always have fun when we go here. The place is very casual and located close to a lot of hotels off Michigan Avenue. The music is always great and you meet a lot of fun people there. They like good music too, so you definitely have something in common. You can dine there as well, but we did not... More

We saw the Clif Wallace quintet here and they were really good. By the time we'd ordered our food the place was packed, seeing as this was just an October Monday I'd say that was a good sign. Food was decent, nothing special but remember the main attraction is the jazz! Good, quick service too!

Nice show at Andy's, very comfortable atmosphere, less "serious" than Green Mill if you wish, meaning there were some tables chatting a bit loud, but enough loud to disturb the show. Had a good time, shows are cheap, performers are pretty good and Andy's is located in downtown, so easy to reach with public transportation or like we did, on... More

I would have to disagree with the last 3 reviews. Music was fantastic, very "jazzy" if you will. Service was excellent, very friendly. Others have said the food is "pricey" but it's quite average compared to other restaurants in the area.

Figured maybe the recent two reviews were in a bad mood. Nope. Group was good. Whoever runs the place needs advice. Group obviously encouraged to play lightweight when in fact after a request to "cut loose" from us were fantastic, then back to lightweight. When I asked for a trumpet solo they took off, apparently not encouraged by management. Overpriced... More

I had a negative experience at Andy's: the place was crowded and manager and waiters were rude, because me and my friends were near the bar. Manager said: "take your money back and go out!!" In addition: the jazz band was horrible, out of tone, pathetic!!

If you don't love jazz a lot...then you had better skip this place. It has a reputation for bad food and it is well earned. $10 cover and music is loud.....you can't converse at all.
