Great breakfast

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.

Stockton for breakfast this past weekend with my family. Andy's is wonderfully clean and the staff is very efficient. They offer a two egg omelette which is a nice choice. Not too expensive easy to get to. Will be going back!

I have eaten here for over 42 years. I have seen it in dire need of repair until the present, totally functional and well appointed. When Andy and his family bought it, this place looked as if it should be razed~! Immediately Andy improved the food and service. He both retained and hired skilled waitresses that were very polite.

Love the waitresses, the service and the food. Menu varied, something for everyone in our party. Reasonable prices and food came quickly. Lots of regular customers give the place a great feel. Great place for breakfast.

Took the grandkids here for dinner. Nice selection on the menu. Food and prices very good. They have Senior specials too. My wife had the pork tenderloin and ended taking half home for another meal. Servers are very nice and attentive. Sure to be one of our favorites.

Went to Andy's on a Wednesday afternoon and they were pretty crowded. We were seated quickly but it took awhile for our server to show up. She was pleasant and our food did arrive quickly. My breakfast of eggs, toast and hash browns was good. My wife had the Harvest Salad with chicken. The salad was described as having Gorgonzola... More

Great restaurant. We had breakfast and the menu selection was large. Our waitress was super fun and friendly. We have eaten here before and have always had a great waitress. The staff is very attentive with refills and clearing table. Casual family dinning.

We stop in a couple of times per month for breakfast on the weekends. The place is always busy but the wait is never long. They have a delicious Cream of Chicken served all day (as is breakfast) that we always get even when ordering breakfast. Their omelets, skillets and burgers are big and served piping hot.

We have been here many times. We love this place and have some fond memories of breakfast at Andy's with a deceased friend. As always, the food was excellent! I had the eggs benedict and my husband had an omelet. The waiters and waitresses really hustle to keep your coffee cup full and see if you want anything else. We... More
