Fantastic dinner and service. So my Husband ordered the Salmon Rockefeller with the rice and spinach and he loved it and I enjoyed the Chicken Pinot Grigio. The chicken was parmesan encrusted with spinach and a thick slab of mozzarella melted on top with some diced tomatoes in a light sauce. The crust seemed to seal in all of the... More

We had yet another wonderful dining experience in one of our favorite restaurants. From the greetings of the valet, the hostess, and our server Samantha, to our final bite, all was top-notch!

Had not been in 15 years and just went twice this year. It was great. They have dinner combinations specials before 6pm. For a great salad try out their wonderful chopped spinach salad (enough to split for 2). My favorite appetizer is their firecracker shrimp. It is not hot or spicy, like we have had other places but was still... More

I was in AA for business, thus was eating alone. I saw this location in Trip Advisor, so thought I would give it a go. It is in the old Ann Arbor train station, next to the Amtrak station. Working in the rail industry, I immediately decided I must go here. Upon arrival, parking is a little tight, with a... More

In my opinion, Gandy Dancer never disappoints. I've never had a bad meal here. But what they do best is their special events, such as Mother's Day, Easter, etc., brunches. We had our last two Mother's Day brunches here and they were lovely. A great selection of food--something for absolutely everyone. Keep in mind you will have to book early,... More

We enjoyed the Thanksgiving evening at Gandy Dancer with a complete turkey dinner, including appetizer, desert, and wine. The wait staff and valet service did an excellent job taking care of more than 1300 reservations. This was our second time having Thanksgiving dinner at Gandy Dancer will probably happen many more times. The special treat is having the train come... More

I have not been here for dinner, but I have been many times for weekday lunch and a few times for the Sunday brunch. The Sunday brunch was nice, although not spectacular. Lunch has been disappointing more than half of the times I have eaten here: on multiple occasions they have been out of at least one of the entrees,... More

My favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor. We sat right by the train tracks. The building is so interesting, an old stone train station. I actually took trains from this station in the 50s when I was a student at The University of Michigan. The food is excellent, Pumpkin cheese cake fantastic. Sandwiches were good. I especially like the lettuce wedge... More

I love the Gandy Dancer. Of the Joe Muer family of restaurants, I personally believe that this is the finest. The food and service are always first rate. Their breakfast buffet is a must try.

First time visit for us and we were impressed. Beautiful old train depot makes for nice ambiance (even got to view the train as it rolled past ever so close to our table). Started by splitting a shrimp cocktail, great presentation with 5 lovely shrimp, a very large cheese crisp and a small pile of "greens" with a nice light... More
