We visited Andy's last night for a meal. From start to finish the night was fantastic. Service was superb with one young lady in particular extremely friendly and knows her job! The food was out of this world. Hubby had the chicken speciality - he is still talking about it being the best chicken he has ever tasted. I had the fish duo - sea bass and salmon. It was just to die for. The flavours were just unreal. Our friends had the hake and steak and both are raving about the taste of their dishes. The cheesecake and berry tart were both amazing. Nicest cheesecake ever. Even the ice cream and chocolate sauces were extraordinary! I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy's but I would say book in advance. The number of people eating here says it all. Well done to all involved.

That young lady must be Shannon - she us excellent and regularly mentioned here on TripAdvisor. We only use fresh fish - nothing frozen. It really makes a difference. Our aged beef is mentioned in nearly every single review. My sister Aisling is responsible for the cheesecake and has a heavy hand with the Baileys! Booking is essential at the weekends as the restaurant books out quickly. Many thanks for reaving your insightful review.

Claire,
Many thanks for your review. Sunday lunch - well as you know we don't offer a carvery, all our food is cooked to order. Our a la carte bar menu is very popular and in fact Sunday is the busiest day of the week! It certainly works for us. Look forward to seeing you all soon.

Visited this restaurant yesterday during a week in Monaghan visiting family.
I am so pleased we chose to eat here, the meal was outstanding.
I had the chicken wings to start, these were amazing- one of the best if not the best I have ever had. Huge portion, went down a treat.
My partner had the soup, which he really enjoyed, again lovely big bowl piping hot and full of flavour.
We both had sirloin steak for main, cooked to perfection.
Side orders and sauces included in the price for the main dish unlike a lot of restaurants. We had chips, garlic potatoes, pepper sauce and Monaghan sauce- could not possibly be faulted. All amazing.
Every member of staff without exception was warm friendly and professional.
I can’t recommend this place enough.
Thanks Andy’s, looking forward to coming back.

Our chicken wings are very popular- they are a generous portion for €5.95 with a side order it’s as good as a main meal! We are renowned for our generous portions and it works well for us. We recently changed our soup from a chunky soup to a blended soup Creating a more flavoursome soup. The Dry Aged beef is our signature product, we are the only restaurant in the region to age beef. Many thanks for such a positive endorsement of what we do here in Andy’s.

If you like steak, this is the place to eat! My husband & I love our food. We had a top class meal tonight, two rare steaks with all the trimmings. Stunning, is the only adjective I can think of to describe this meal. Staff are exceptional, Shannon is so friendly & cannot do enough for each & every customer. We are both foodie people & love eating out. Have eaten in the best restaurants but if you want decent food with top class service come to Andy’s of Monaghan!

Pauline,
What a lovely review to receive, in fact I’m going to use your review on our trip advisor opening promotional page - you will like it! Shannon is a real gem, she really does an exceptional job and she Is regularly mentioned here on Tripadvisor. I suppose our philosophy is quite simple in that we don’t do everything but with the likes of our aged beef we do it better than anyone else! Look forward to seeing you both soon.

We visited this little spot on a trip to Monaghan and couldn’t have been happier. The staff were very attentive, service was speedy and the food was just delicious! We both had Brie and then the Monaghan chicken and chicken stir fry. Food cooked and prepared and presented to perfection. Thank you

Hello Julie,
Great choices! The Brie is served served with fresh berries and a jag of brandy. The Chicken Monaghan has been on the menu since we started in 1983 still very popular to this day. Many thanks for taking the time to leave your positive review.
