Help-hungry in Andover MA

We will be in the Andover area and would really appreciate recs for good, medium priced American, chinese, and fish restaurants. A nice diner for lunch would also be useful. Thanks!

  1. Joe Fish. Good fish, good prices.

    1. For fish I agree Joe Fish is a good choice in N. Andover, The Loft next door is a good choice for American, and a little further up that road is China Blossom for good American Chinese food.
      Right in Andover for med. priced American Grassfield's is good. In the same plaza as Grassfield, is Thai Sweet Basil.
      For a diner for lunch, if you have a car and don't mind driving to Lawrence, the is Cedar Crest Restaraunt, 187 Broadway in Lawrence.

      1. You might want to try Glory (its a little upscale) or Dillion's (good pub grub). Both in downtown Andover

          i'll second the Glory recc. however, i did hear that the long standing chef of Glory left very recently and the food has taken quite a hit. does anyone know if this is true?

        2. China Blossom on Route 125 in North Andover has decent Chinese food.

          1. Sweet Basil has wonderful Thai food and for a diner, try the Shawsheen Luncheonette. I second Grassfields. Their menu is great and has a variety of meat and seafood dishes.

              Duh! I drive past The Shawsheen Luncheonette every day going to work - can't believe I couldn't remember it for a lunch place!
