Another amazing Andy's restaurant. This one is located in the mall on Emerald Isle, the food is served piping hot and always fresh. Love this restaurant, one of my favorites on the island..

Great burgers, fries, custard ice cream and shakes. Cute little diner-type franchise. Avoid the one in Emerald Isle, NC, as it has, by far, the worst service of any restaurant I've ever seen. They have a consistent problem with lack of staff or adequately trained staff - run by a bunch of teenagers. Other locations are good.

I eat here often, and it shows. Its food actually has taste, individual taste. You realize there is a tomato, meat, onion, ect. And their sweet tea is perfect...even the ice is good, it's crushed.

The food was just ok. Service was extremely slow. It appeared they only had one server for the entire restaurant and she was also having to clean tables. So lots of dirty tables and slow service.

My family and I (no young children) were very hungry for a good burger while visiting Emerald Isle. We asked a few local residents. Their responses were all pretty much the same..."You can't get a good burger on the island." Not being familiar with anything outside the island, we decided to check the internet for ideas. A review indicated the food was cheap. The food was cheap, not good quality as stated in a review. Same review stated food was fast. Not so fast was our experience. There were only 3 filled tables upon our arrival. It took us over 20 minutes to get 2 burgers, 1 cheese steak and 2 hot dogs. The onion rings were hard and had no real flavor. We had to request our order of fries 2 times after the original order before we got them. The milkshakes, that according to a review "were so thick you needed a spoon to eat it", was barely cold. Tables around us had their shakes delivered with whipped cream and a cherry. Not us:( The servers appeared to be unorganized as to who was "up next". This may have caused the issue with timeliness or the lack of.

There appearred to be a plumbing problem in the women's bathroom. We watched as an employee carried a dripping mop from the bathroom through the restaurant and into the food prep area of the kitchen. We also watched a male employee carry what appeared to be an auger-type tool from the bathroom, through the restaurant and also through the kitchen. Maybe it is the only way out to the back of the restaurant, but come on. Put those types of 'emergency tools' in a bucket in an effort to be a little more discreet.

A neighboring table tried ordering milk for their young child. Their server indicated they don't serve milk. Are you kidding me!?! You have a children's menu. Many children don't drink iced tea, soda or fruit punch. You sell MILKshakes. What are you using to make them>

Bottom line, I would be hard pressed to return to Andy's.
