In Ogden, Utah, Andy’s Club Marks 56 Years of Steak, Souvlaki, Good Times

OGDEN, UT – Greek immigrant Andreas “Andy” Konstantinos Bolos bought a small building in Ogden, Utah in 1968 – some said it had been a speakeasy during Prohibition – and turned it into a place where people flocked to eat.

Andy’s Club now is celebrating its history as one of the city’s favorite eateries, featuring steak and souvlaki and Greek food and the rejoicing that comes with the Greek way of socializing and eating.

It now is run by Chelsey and Blayne Griffis, who bought in June 2023. Chelsey, who worked at Andy’s for 15 years before purchasing it from George and Aphrodige Koloveas said, “We have a lot of fun here.”

“It’s like that TV show ‘Cheers,’ where everybody knows your name. We get a lot of new faces, but most people are on a first-name basis,” she said.

When Bolos first bought it, “it was a beer bar,” Griffis said. “For the longest time, people just came here to drink,” she told the Standard-Examiner. Then came the food.
