Good comfort food in a great atmosphere.

These folks love their clients. When you come to Andy's you're treated like family. Especially if you show your face a few times. After 25+ years of breakfasts, lunches and dinners, all I can say is that I keep comin' back. Love these guys.

Enjoyed breakfast for dinner at Andy's. The special bacon, avocado omelette was delicious and not close to being greasy. The pumpkin pancakes were also very good. Mary our waitress was very nice. I would suggest parking in the lot across the street and stay out of the alley lot. Will come back. Maybe next time I'll try dinner for breakfast!

What a great place for breakfast! This place is iconic in Crystal Lake and for good reason. I visited with my son and brand new daughter-in-law and it was a hit.

Her brother had Swiss Cheese scrambled eggs which included green peppers and cheese melted on top. The daughter of the owner told us she has worked their for 30 + years! Very pleasant atmosphere, very... More

The food here is good, homemade. not designer but all very good. You get a lot of food for your money and the menu is large enough that you have good choices. The staff is very friendly and great with kids. The only thing I will say is I would NEVER park in the lot behind the restaurant again. You... More

A regular breakfast haunt of ours over the years. Andy's has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, lovely wait staff, and a great menu of skillets and pancakes.
