Wonderful staff, atmosphere is very laid back and friendly. Good place for children, I bring my 6yr old daughter and 7month old son here a lot. Food is devine! My favourite is the prawn cocktail and for mains the creamy chicken and mushroom. I'm salivating thinking of it now.

Catherine,
Great to receive your review. My newest member of staff - Shannon is proving to be great with children, she has a genuine interest in children, makes them feel important, chats to them, and I suppose very importantly she will arrange some ice-cream or a lolly! Sales in our creamy chicken and mushroom have risen dramatically recently - I wonder why? Look forward to seeing you all soon.

Regards Kevin

Friendly, helpful staff. Delicious food that's well presented. Very homely. Highly recommend "the garlic chicken" . Very good value for money.

Your review was great many thanks for that. you maybe surprised to know that the garlic chicken would not be our biggest seller, the Chicken Monaghan would out sell it many times over. In saying that I have customers that will only come in for it. I'm glad that we have not lost our "homely" touch either, that is crucial and helps Andy's stand out from the crowd.

Best wishes and look forward to seeing back soon

Kevin

The mark of a good restaurant is not necessarily its size, but the quality of its food and the generosity of its staff.

For those of you searching for a culinary experience like no other, look no further than Andy's restaurant. Some of the finest dining experiences I've had has been in Andy's. There is a fantastic choice of dishes all very reasonably priced and the food is cooked to perfection. The staff is so polite and efficient, making your dining experience even more enjoyable. Without a doubt this is defiantly the pick of all restaurants in Monaghan town.

Thank you for your review. Staff - and having nice staff is a very important part of Andy's. This point shines through in your review. I think the people of Monaghan are blessed when it comes to restaurants - as they are all excellent, but thank you for making us No.1!

My Husband and I have eaten here several times and I must say it's one of the nicest places to eat out in Monaghan town. The staff are very friendly and efficient, the food is excellent and they use local produce when possible.
Well worth a visit!
