We were there to celebrate 39th anniversary. My wife liked her lobster, but my salmon was spoiled. It smelled bad from the time it was set in front of me. It did not really seem to be any big deal to the waiter in fact he did not even report it to management. When the manager came by to check... More

Our ladies lunch bunch was ushered to a perfect and preset table with a great view. Even with separate checks our server Jaclyn encouraged us to order a bottle of wine whose price she divided among the drinkers. Some headed for the super lobster bisque; others the "lunch box" (excellent combo options) or a recommended pasta. Only two of us... More

My wife put together a surprise birthday dinner and invited several of our friends. The restaurant accommodated us and even printed up a few special menus with a Happy Birthday message at the top of the menu. We and a wonderful time and look forward to doing this again in the near future.

The Gandy Dancer is very easy to find. Exit 3 off US23 and take a left. The train does go through, we saw 2 while we ate. Food was very good. The cost is like a nicer restaurant but not overpriced. Good place to go on a date or small business meal. They have valet parking or just across the... More

Located in an old railroad depot, just being at the Gandy Dancer is a treat. The architecture is amazing, and every time a train runs past (the tracks are still active), everyone in the restaurant applauds! It's a neat thing to be part of. This is fine dining with prices to match and worth it. They pride themselves on their... More

We a Arrived 30 minutes before they were closing and they treated us like we have been customers for ever. No rush. No bad looks. Our waiter David could not have been any nicer. Thank You. The food was excellent as you would expect from a well know dining establishment. Highly recommend if you are in the Ann Arbor Area

We were able to hold an intimate wedding ceremony for my brother in the Wolverine room and then enjoy a delightful dinner reception. The food was amazing! Staff was very helpful and accommodating.

Yesterday, my company elected to host a small gathering for dinner in the Ann Arbor, Michigan vicinity, just about 45-min due West of Detroit. They decided for us to go to the Gandy Dancer. Frankly speaking, I didn't tell him that I've already been there with previous dining visits but regardless, it was a great time with wonderful food, outstanding... More
