Another great Valentine's Day at Gandy Dancer, we have never been disappointed here. The food is always delicious, nicely prepared, and served hot. The waitstaff is top notch. We have been here several times and they stay up to their high standard every time.

Happy hour is great here. The appetizers are reasonably priced and the cocktails are very generous. The service is impeccable. The atmosphere is almost gothic, being cozy, warm and relaxing.

Travelled to Ann Arbor on business and was recommended this restaurant by client. It was many years ago and I still haven't forgotten that experience and still recommend it to friends and other travelers to the Ann Arbor area.

Old redone railroad station that serves the best of everything. Though prices are on the high side the experience is equal to the price especially when the a track pulls thru. Great happy hour in the bar

It's a place for a great meal on the fancy side. Located inside the old Ann Arbor Train Station. The atmosphere is elegant, and the food is outstanding. Never had a bad meal here. Great place for lunch with your wife!!!

The Gandy Dancer has been a staple in Ann Arbor for many years. The restaurant is located in the old and beautifully restored Ann Arbor Railroad Station, built in the late 19th century. There is a lot of history associated with the building and it worth taking a photo for your files. The building is just a bonus to your... More

Fabulous selections. Attentive, courteous waitstaff. 5th star withheld as parking can be challenging and the crowd after 11:30 can be daunting.

Great food, atmosphere and service. A must visit when in the area. This restaurant is an old train depot. The shrimp & artichoke pasta was amazing.
