Awesome Music

Awesome music and location downtown. The musicians were top notch and entertaining. The service was good and the food was good as something to munch on while we listened.

I love going a bit out of the core the jazz and blues bars however if you want to stay right downtown this is a great spot to stop by for cocktails and jazz. $10 cover is typically for the band (people in front of us were complaining about the charge) and that's a reasonable price for an evening of...

This place has really good live Jazz musicians! It was a 5 piece band and they were very talented and experienced. We had drinks and a few appetizers. The food was average, hence the 4 stars. The staff is very nice and attentive. Worth a visit for sure!!

Amazing music. There is cover charge. Menus are light up due to dim interior; nice touch but a lil bright. Service was off. Beers were empty and didn't ask if we wanted another but did keep water full. Food is pretty good. But the big draw is definitely music. Tables have time limits on occasions.

One night at Andy's is a must do every time I go to Chicago. Live music starts late afternoon and continues late; cover charge of $10 is reasonable and some hotels give discount coupons. Food is ok and medium priced. You go for the music!. Time at tables is limited to 2 hours, but after that you can stand around... More

The live Jazz is very entertaining. The wine went down smooth, but the food was only mediocre. I had a personal deep dish made to order and it was not hot, seemed premade with some extra topping thrown in before a quick reheat. Not many options for vegetarians.

Music was outstanding. Service was great. Food was okay. Went with friends and their daughter. Great experience for teenagers, but not sure younger kids would like it.

Went here with 5 friends to take in the show. $15 cover at the door to get in (which was good because with St. Patrick's day festivities it kept the riff raff out. The entertainment was good and fun.

We were able to get last minute reservations for a Friday night seating and happened to get a table right in front. The band playing (Charlie Ballentine Group) was excellent. The food is good, although fairly basic. The taco trio was delicious! The jazzerac cocktail is also a winner - bourbon & absinthe...wow! Tables have a 2 hour maximum and... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor we were looking for something to do on a Friday night. Music was great service was good, space however is very limited. Caught the end of the first group and the second started an hour later, we just hung around behind the bar until a spot opened up. Seating is limited and even if you... More
