We visited 189 Prime for breakfast during our recent stay at the Andover MA Doubletree. This restaurant is located directly off the lobby and has outdoor seating during warmer weather in a courtyard surrounded by the hotel. The breakfast we had was about 16.00 for the buffet.

It is assumed that the guest wants the full buffet as I wasn't asked but was directed to help myself to many choices of breakfast items. I kept it simple with a cheese... More

We twice had a good dinner at the restaurant. The fish plate looked and tasted nice. The lady serving provided a nice, friendly and entertaining service. In my view the prices were a bit on the high end

Not having to drive to Boston, or at least Burlington, it is very good fare, The atmosphere is a little dull, with not much action. The steak I had was delicious and would definitely eat there again.

I had a bacon cheese burger for dinner and the breakfast buffet the following morning. The staff were phenomenal and very personable. The food was fantastic. I would come back even when not staying at the hotel.

Came with wife on a Thursday night, was very quiet for a restaurant of this calibre. But the service was attentive, Mary serve us well, we have a wonderful time. Food was above average, because we are not that hungry, we only ordered some starters which was ok. Overall a good night out, will definitely come again.
