We visited 189 Prime for breakfast during our recent stay at the Andover MA Doubletree. This restaurant is located directly off the lobby and has outdoor seating during warmer weather in a courtyard surrounded by the hotel. The breakfast we had was about 16.00 for the buffet. The staff here was again excellent. We were told to sit wherever we... More

We were in Andover for a wedding, stayed over & needed breakfast before heading home. The restaurant serves breakfast until noon which was a plus for us. It is assumed that the guest wants the full buffet as I wasn't asked but was directed to help myself to many choices of breakfast items. I kept it simple with a cheese... More

We twice had a good dinner at the restaurant. The fish plate looked and tasted nice. The lady serving provided a nice, friendly and entertaining service. In my view the prices were a bit on the high end

Not having to drive to Boston, or at least Burlington, it is very good fare, The atmosphere is a little dull, with not much action. The steak I had was delicious and would definitely eat there again.

I had a bacon cheese burger for dinner and the breakfast buffet the following morning. The staff were phenomenal and very personable. The food was fantastic. I would come back even when not staying at the hotel.

Came with wife on a Thursday night, was very quiet for a restaurant of this calibre. But the service was attentive, Mary serve us well, we have a wonderful time. Food was above average, because we are not that hungry, we only ordered some starters which was ok. Overall a good night out, will definitely come again.
