Took my son for Fathers Day Brunch. The warm bread basket promised good things to come. He had the all-you-can-eat pea soup, which he loved. The toppings costed $3.50, which seemed a bit much for very small paper cups of ham, bacon bits, cheese, croutons,...More

Yup, the Pea Soup. Vegetarian but how bout getting on the lower sodium bandwagon. OK service but this place needs a thorough cleaning on the dining area and restroom. Feels like you are dining in a 1980s gift shop. You can't eat iconic.

Had not been to Andersen’s for many years, and for a “tourist location” it still is very good. Very good and friendly service. The split pea soup is still excellent; bought some in cans from the gift store as well.
