4 of us went for supper. It was busy....the room can get pretty noisy. We found it annoying. The steak was good, the chicken was tough and lacked flavour. The pork chop was rather hard and a bit bland. We expected better quality overall. Would I go back...if I had to.

On a beautiful Summer afternoon, go to the Andover Inn (Samuel's Restaurant) and sit outside on their porch for a very relaxing lunch. You might also visit on a Sunday for an excellent Brunch inside.

For lunch, at least, the atmosphere is enjoyably calm, as is the setting on this private school campus. The food is decent, especially the burgers which are actually quite good. Sometimes the service is slow although the staff has always been helpful and personable.

Arrived later than expected at Andover Inn and we decided to try Samuel's for dinner. What a fantastic surprise it turned out to be! All four of us were pleased with the service from start to finish and the quality of the food was excellent. The Haddock coated in cracker crumbs was very fresh and flavorful and the chicken was...

Accommodated us last minute so we could eat with our children's friends and didn't rush us out the door. Was easy to chat and relax and enjoy dinner after a hectic day.

Went here with a group from work for lunch. We all loved our orders and the waitress was very nice and helpful with any questions we had on the menu.

Have eaten several times at Samuels. I have found the food to be great. One plate I love is the short ribs, the meat was falling off the bone and would just melt in my mouth. The service is equally great, they keep checking on our needs, making sure our drinks are taken care of. The food prices are reasonable... More

We went last night for dinner and drinks. They have a nice wine list with a 9oz option for some of the wines by the glass. I had their summer salad which was Arugula and Chopped Romaine with Almond Crusted Fried Goat Cheese, Shaved Fennel, Grape Tomatoes, Matchstick Potatoes, Alfalfa Sprouts, and Basil-Raspberry Vinaigrette. And for my entree I had... More

Have been to Samuel's a number of times and have been very happy every time. Love the new bar and dining room. Food is very good at reasonable price points. Much more crowded which makes for an upbeat atmosphere. Have been to Samuel's for special occasions and just meeting friends. Always a great dinner!

Not our first visit, but first to the dining room with friends other than work colleagues. Although off-season (it's on the campus of a private school whose students - and wealthy parents - had already fled to the riviera) the bar and dining areas were both lively and welcoming. Not a shorts and t-shirt restaurant the atmosphere and wait staff... More
