Well Jan 15, 2017 is a sad day to see the Dandy close after 40 years! I've been coming since 1997 when I lived in the area and first discovered them. Great spot for cheap beer, hangout with friends outside on a nice day or grab some food. Great wings and probably better friend cod! Always ran into people I... More

Visited here 20+ times in past 30 years and it has deteriorated to a rating of poor. Service staff don't care about your satisfaction and quality of food is below average. The past five or six times eating here has been well-below expectations. Would not recommend this place.

Dandy Inn is a great place to ear..and have a beer or two, especially on a Friday. Fried cod is wonderful, real good pizza. During the warm weather there are outside tables and a little playground for the kids. (I remember one, but it may not be there anymore). Crowded on the weekends and holidays.

If you like friendly service this is the place for you! My husband and I ate at Dandy Inn yesterday. The fried chicken wings were excellent! I think the next time we are thinking of getting take-out, we'll bring home fried chicken from Dandy Inn! :)

I'm not a drinker, but went to Dandy Inn, an Irish pub, for corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick's Day. The food was nothing special, but wasn't bad.

I enjoy a cold one, a burger, good conversation and the Car Cruse every Wednesday evening during the summer. So much I drive my show car from O'Fallon, MO. to Fairview Heights, IL. and back.

Good food and pretty inexpensive for the quality you get. Shrimp and Cod are the best
