Basic tourist diner - with lots of kitschy gifts/souvenirs on the way in, Food was OK, nothing special. Had the pea soup (in a bread bowl with several "sides"), which was good, but not great. Basic menu with lots of sandwich options. Staff was very friendly, but again, nothing special.

We've been eating at Pea Soup Andersen's for years - from the time we were children! But this was the first time we've ever had anything other than pea soup (the Traveler's Special for the win!!), and we were very pleasantly surprised! I had the roast turkey dinner and hubby had the pot roast. Both were excellent and plentiful. Hubby... More

My husband and I dined at Andersen's 4 years ago; the food was delicious. Last night, it was disgusting. It's just a tourist trap. My parents and husband had soup, all three were not impressed. I ordered chicken fried steak; my husband waited to see what it was like before he ordered it. Needless to say, when he saw the... More

Not impressed. Ok, but nothing special. We stopped for lunch. People were nice. Not someplace I would drive to go to.

Nice gift shop. Interesting decorations and a good Bakery. The restaurant is OK. Food Average. A good place to take someone that has never been there.

I visit here every year with family and this is a must-visit restaurant! We go at least twice each visit. The food is wonderful, workers are extra nice and their milkshakes, well.. lets just say you will be wanting more!!! I recommend the Traveler's Special that gets you unlimited soup and a drink.

We hadn't been here for many years, so decided to stop here on our way back home. We arrived right before lunch and had no problem getting seated. They are obviously know for their pea soup, and while I prefer a heartier bowl, theirs was very tasty. They have a soup and sandwich combo which was more then filling. The... More

Average Food, Great soup and a nice shop inside. They have a small bakery inside. The small store inside sells souvenirs, cheese, bread, & canned soup. You get a 10% discount coupon at the Vistors Center and the Pea soup Andersons Inn
