I’m seriously surprised by and highly suspect of the previous good reviews. If you have a reasonably good palate and you’re looking for good food, Andria’s is not a good choice. The food tastes and looks pre-packaged at best. School lunches and hospital food score better. Everything seriously lacked seasoning and attention to detail, so I’d fare to guess that the food is low sodium and not prepared by chefs. The slaw had a mildly rancid flavor and tasted like licking an old jar of mayo. The fish was overcooked, dry and greasy but edible…though the tartar sauce was good. The fries were overcooked, brown, and heavy. They were more of a chewy outer shell with an empty center. I’m guessing they don’t change the fry oil very often, so the food doesn’t cook properly. The clams were large, but unclean and extremely chewy. They contained quite a bit of sand and grit that was hard on the teeth. I couldn’t eat them. The crab cakes had a “previously frozen” flavor. The chowder wasn’t standard. It had an unusual flavor, maybe cumin, and didn’t have many potatoes or clams but did contain quite a bit of carrot that adds sweetness. It wasn’t bad, but it certainly wasn’t good.
The staff is fast…but the service is not exactly customer friendly, warm or welcoming. Be prepared to hurry, feel pressured and shout your order. Think cattle corrals and chutes.
