The homemade soups are excellent, plus the service is always friendly and nice. I love the corned beef melt with Swiss cheese. Breakfast is always good and consistent. Try to go there at least once a month.

Andy's is a great spot for breakfast. The service is fast and friendly and the pancakes are the bomb!

Been going to Andy's since I was a little kid. Never been a disappointment. Proportions are huge! This is where you go when you're starving for breakfast. If you like corn beef hash I highly recommend the Irish Benedict, Delish!

Very good lunch with delicious homemade soup. Server was very attentive and the owner stopped by twice to make sure everything was ok. Plan to try a Friday night for their fresh fish

Friendly, consistently delicious, and not over priced. BEST pancakes ever! Small place but quaint and clean. Table and booth seating or eat at the diner counter. Our family's favorite breakfast place in McHenry county.

We have been going to Andy's for many years but never thought about reviewing it till today. The food is above average and not super large portions. The Biscuits and Gravy are great and so are the omelettes. Fried eggs get to crispy for me....More
