I recently visited Palmers with colleagues of mine. We sat at the bar and service was professional and fast. Great for lunch during the work week. I had the Chicken Saltimbocca sandwich. I have never seen or even heard of a chicken saltimbocca sandwich and had to try it. It was fantastic, a new favorite. Next time I go in,... More

There were 5 of us. We read good things about Palmers, and since we were staying in Andover, we figured we'd give it a try. We walk up the front stairs and through the enclosed porch and then we are hit smack in the face with a tiny space with a big crowd. All heads turn to us, and each... More

Had lunch for the first time at Palmers. The prices are more than fair. The food was good, lunch came out fast, and the server was good about keeping our drinks filled. They have ample tables for a lunch time meeting. They have parking out back, so if you can't find street parking (hard), try out back. Once parked you... More

Good without being remarkable. The food is quite decent but unremarkable, but the service is fine and the ambiance is pleasant, a touch of old New England.

Interesting menu. There is a lot of choice in hamburgers, but also some good choices in real food, I loved the peach salad!

Dinner and a good band and I'm happy. I had the filet a year previous and thought I would try the ribeye this time.they were kind and let me substitute my sides, and the veg medley was too good, but my steak although cooked great and was flavorful I was disappointed trying to cut around the fat. I never send... More

We enjoyed put meal at Palmers, yet it was not as good as expected. The drink list was short and ultimately disappointing. Our server was pleasant but somewhat slow. Our appetizers were tasty, especially the clam chowder. We probably won't return as there are better options in Andover.

We had a large group dinner here and the food and drinks were both excellent. I would not say the prices were particularly moderate, they seemed a little on the pricey side, but it was a nice atmosphere, the wait staff was friendly, and overall great experience. Would definitely eat here again.

Thank kbs1010
