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

The Gandy Dancer is located in a historic railway station in the center of Ann Arbor. The food is great and the service excellent. I was there during the week and it was not crowded. The atmosphere was quiet and elegant. Definitely a good place for quiet conversation.

We enjoyed a nice dinner at the Gandy dancer last week. Our food was good, it was nicely presented, and the waitstaff was attentive. We've always loved the setting of the restaurant in the old railroad station in Ann Arbor. It is still a very nice place to enjoy an evening out. We were fortunate that an Amtrak train passed...

What a beautiful day for dinner with a view! We were sat at a window seat looking out at the Amtrak rails............An Amtrak came by and everyone clapped :) Service was excellent. Appetizer was the Spicy Rock Shrimp, AWESOME! We had Salmon Rockefeller and Filet and Shrimp Scampi. Everything was cooked to our liking. This is one of our favorite... More

We went to this restaurant while visiting Ann Arbour. The food is excellent and the service was very friendly and efficient. The only downside was the restaurant seems to want to turn the tables over very quickly. Our dinner came to our table before we were even finished with our appetizers. At a restaurant of this calibre, I typically expect... More

The Gandy dancer is a must dining experience if in the Ann Arbor area. It is expensive, however, well worth it! Whether you want fresh sea food or a prime cut of beef this is the place.
