Andy's of Crosslake under new ownership

Andy’s Restaurant and Liquor Store in Crosslake is under new ownership, with some remodeling in the works and an expanded menu on the way.

Ed Money, the new owner, said he plans to keep the restaurant and liquor store pretty similar to how they have been, but with more emphasis on the menu and kitchen.

He’ll serve sandwiches and burgers, including a juicy Lucy and prime rib sandwich, among other items.

Remodeling plans include a new bar top and bar front, new ceiling tiles, carpet and paint. He’ll also be putting in a few flat screen TVs, as well as tap beers.

His goal was to re-open April 10. The name will remain the same, but he may create a new logo.

Money said the selection former owner Lonna Andolshek built in the liquor store is what he believes to be the best in the area. One of the store’s offerings is Louis XII cognac, which retails for $2,395.

He said the store has an especially good selection of vodka and tequila.

Money was told the Andy’s building is possibly the oldest in Crosslake, having once housed the post office. He believes it was built around 1909.
