Where to chow down and shop in North Andover.

Ethnic Eateries

Bollywood Grill (350 Winthrop Ave)

Spice up your night with some curry and cumin while soaking up some local Indian culture. Dine on traditional Indian dishes.

China Blossom (946 Osgood St)

Whether you are up for a buffet or down for a scorpion bowl, China Blossom stands as the largest Chinese restaurant in the area. Kiss 108 DJ’s jam on weekend nights, so don’t forget your dancing shoes!

Beijing Restaurant & Lounge (1250 Osgood St)

is always buzzing with the sounds of sizzling dishes and, maybe even more distinctively, karaoke singers. If you aren’t quite up for a night of tunes though, don’t worry, you can dine in or take out.

China Wok (129 Main St).

Dependable take-out downtown.

Eastern Iron Chef (733 Turnpike St)

If you have had your fill of traditional Chinese but still crave an Asian flare, you can stop by this fabulous destination for some Eastern Asian and Hong Kong cuisine.

Orzo Trattoria (1085 Osgood Street-Rte 125)

This traditional Italian eatery located in Butcher Boy plaza, is one of North Andover’s “best kept secrets.” From the chicken parmigiana to the lobster and pasta special every Friday, there are many options to please your palette.

New Kids on the Block

Casa Blanca (1070 Osgood St)

Even though this family-owned Mexican restaurant and cantina is more than qualified to fill the spot of an “ethnic eatery,” it’s really made a splash as the new best thing.

Burtons Grill (145 Turnpike St)

North Andover finally has an up-scale steakhouse we can call our own. Featuring contemporary American cuisine, every course is more distinct and delicious than the next, making dining at Burtons worth every penny (and calorie).

Eatz (57 Water St)

For early risers or late lunchers, Eatz is the perfect spot for grabbing a satisfying breakfast or lunch. Dine on a dime every time at this relatively new treasure and talk of the town.

Oldies but Goodies

Harrison’s Roast Beef (80 Chickering Rd)

If you are from North Andover you’ve undoubtedly inhaled a Harrison’s famous sandwich at least once. Its face remains unchanged with time, and the food continues to draw herds of consumers daily.

Top of the Scale’s Restaurant (4 Johnson St)

Located above the now defunct Hayscales Exchange in old North Andover center, this has been a dining destination for decades. Visit for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

The Loft Restaurant and Pub (1140 Osgood St)

One of Route 125’s very own landmarks, The Loft stands tall as a rustic steakhouse amidst modern developments. Whether you are dining upstairs on a rib-eye steak or cheering on your favorite team in the lower level bar and lounge, the Loft is always the perfect destination for some local flavor.

Val’s Restaurant (91 Main St)

Welcome yourself to the neighborhood by sharing in tradition and stopping at Val’s for breakfast or lunch.

Feeling Fishy

Joe Fish Seafood Restaurant (1120 Osgood St)

Not only will it feel like a day at the beach once you step through its doors, but it will look like one too! No doubt you’ll be reeled in by the fresh fish and gourmet selection.

Baystate Chowder (109 Main St)

Looking for some chowda? Come taste an award-winning cup at Baystate Chowder. Not a fan of chowder? No worries, they also have great wrap sandwiches and cookies for that sweet tooth!

Tiny Treasures

Crumpets Tea Room (56 Water St).

Tea party anyone? Adorable and quaint. High tea and finger sandwiches.

Cafe (208 Sutton St)

Variety of fresh sandwiches and salads.

Joe’s Landing Cafe (492 Sutton St).

Located in the Municipal Airport, you can stop for breakfast or lunch 7 days a week and watch the planes come and go. With a Lebanese owner, it’s standard grill fare with some Middle Eastern dishes.

Cheryl Juba, owner of B Sporty, a retail sports apparel store specializing in North Andover Logo apparel and accessories, meets and greets lots of North Andover residents who frequent her store located on Route 125 sandwiched between North Andover Middle and High Schools. B Sporty is the kind of place the proverbial “soccer mom” frequents on a regular basis for everything from mouth guards to varsity jackets. As such, B Sporty becomes a kind of hub for town news and sharing of all the places old and new to shop around town.

“North Andover can boast a diverse offering of places to shop that are sprinkled about the town rather than concentrated in one downtown location,” says Cheryl. “You may need to work a bit harder to get to them, but they are worth the trip.”
