I visited this establishment on a training trip. I was looking for a nearby local restaurant just to get away from the office for a while. Upon arriving, it took a few minutes to be seated even though the restaurant was not busy. I'm not sure if this was a bad sign or not, but the poor service followed. After... More

I've been to Andy's a few times and never leave dissatisfied. While I don't eat much meat, the kabobs are so delicious. My favorites are the labneh (appetizer) and the baklava for dessert. The meal and the setting are authentic and the service is friendly.

Friday evening visit. Seated right away. Still in time for happy hour and ordered a draft on special at $2 per glass. Did not do an app. Ordered chicken ( Shish Tawook or chicken breast as kebabs and Chicken Hajjar.) Both were with salad. Salad served with meal. House dressing too bitter. Special seasonings on chicken were a little strong... More

Good Mediterranean food and nice atmosphere. Good service, nice portions. Nice outdoor porch area and the lamb shank was delicious.

My husband and I and two other couples ate here last Saturday around 5pm and it was really yummy. We got hummus and samosas for apps, there was enough for the table to share. My husband and I ordered the lamb kebob and 2 chicken kebob's to share, the meal came with a mountain of rice. The lamb was cooked... More

Having lived in the middle east, i always aspire for good food from there. Unfortunatelly Andy s is not a place where you will find it. The shish tawook is very very dry and the lentil soup was horrible. The fatoush had so much fatty bread that it could not be eaten. The Arak and the arabic coffee were good... More

On a Saturday evening, five of us sat on the porch and ordered appetizers and dinner. The food was tasty and healthy. The service was excellent. No belly dancers though. The locals among us wondered if it was because the restaurant wasn't busy enough.

Visited on a Saturday night after confirming (only 4 days before) that the belly dance performers would be there (as advertised on their website). We were told 'yes' they perform from 8-10pm on Sat. They never showed up, and when we asked the waiter about this, he said they just don't always show up. Very strange. The food portions are... More
