Great jazz - average food

I'm not a jazz expert but I thought the music was great. $10 cover charge when you are dining seems a bit odd but I accepted it with no problem. The jam session with walk-ins was pretty neat. All the walk-ins were pretty amazing. The food is really just average however. My strip steak wasn't... read more

When in Chicago, I always try to stop in at Andy's. No matter who is playing, it's always great. Last time I was there I saw Fareed Haque. Being a musician myself I really love Andy's (and Fareed!).

I have been a patron of Andy's since the 1970's Scott and Dick unfortunately we lost Dick in the 1990's In true and outstanding tradition Scott did not miss a beat some of the worlds greatest jazz musicians called Andy's home. Great musicians such as the late Franz Jackson, Barrett Deams, Von Freeman, as well as my very good friend... More

Used open table and reserved table for two 1 hr prior. $10 per person cover seemed unreasonable given the no name recognition of jazz musicians performing. We just had crabcake appy and beet salad. Both were good.Wine selection and price typical Chicago price ( $ 10 + / glass) May return if known artist was performing.

I walked in about 10:30 pm on a Thursday night by myself. Got charged $10 at the door. OK no problem! There were only seven eight tables occupied, but I have been given two choices; a table by the piano or a high-table way back in the corner. I choose the table by the piano. I am not kidding! The...

A memorable experience, from the Jazz to the food. Service was gracious, attentive and cheerful. From the appetizers, to the entrees to the dessert. Portions are modest, yet satisfying. We heard a magnificent quartet. Marcus Elliot Quartet from Detroit. All five of us enjoyed the food and wine. Will return when in Chicago with friends or for a date with... More

This was our first jazz club experience and it did not disappoint. We got a table right up front and just sat and had a couple of drinks while taking in the great jazz. Will return!

If you're looking for a place to kick back and listen to some good music, this is the place to be. The music was very entertaining and delightful to listen to, which created a nice atmosphere. The food was mediocre, but it doesn't seem like most people come here for food. There is a $10 cover after 9pm I believe.... More

This is a great venue to hear jazz live and eat real food. We'd never been before but we got a table at the back of the room right opposite the stage area and with a good view of the performers. Beware that many tables do not have a view of the stage so you would have to mention this... More
