The soup was very good but that was about it. Ordered a sandwich and fries and they were fairly mediocre. The service was the same way just mediocre. I thought the manager was going to throw a fit when we asked him to split our bill. He kept glaring at us and the waitress across the restaurant. It's okay food... More

The customer service was great. The food was good. Another reasonably priced restaurant. It also has a neat little store inside to pass time, if there is a wait. We went here for lunch and we didn't have to wait to be seated.

Same old Andersons, good all you eat pea soup. Did not eat anything else on menu. The place needs updating

Stopped in late because they were one of the few choices at that hour, and so glad I did! I had a BLT and great conversation with the manager, who told me the history of the place. I don't care for pea soup but enjoyed my meal and the traditional feel of the place, as well as the friendliness!

I know others rave about the pea soup, but I don't happen to care for pea soup. I lucked out, though, as they serve clam chowder but only on Fridays, and that's the night I was there. It was delicious, and I would have eaten it every meal if it had been offered. I had 3 meals there and enjoyed... More

I remember Pea Soup Andersen's many years ago...it hasn't changed very much! But unfortunately the atmosphere just isn't the same anymore....perhaps we've become more sophisticated! However, the quality of the speciality "Pea Soup" certainly has deteriorated thick and starchy! Thankfully I only ordered a bowl! Enjoyed a cup o tea and a look around the large gift shop full of...

Stopped in for pea soup, which was good, but we're hoping for the "original" recipe from 1924, rather than the gluten free, vegetarian one they now serve. The restaurant was very "70's", with the soup crackers & 70's carpet & decor.

We stopped here on our way back from a recent vacation. We had not been here in quite some time. We both had their famous split pea soup. Unfortunately it was not as good as we had remembered it being. Still good, just not as good. Seems like it was more soup and less split peas!
