Description: Established in 2010 Corndance Tavern presents classic tastes of the Midwest with metropolitan sophistication. Our highly trained staff strive to provide a truly memorable dining experience; professional service, fresh local food presented in a dynamic fashion, and the perfect beverage make your Corndance experience one to remember! Our steaks are dry aged and cut in-house, using midwestern beef fed on grain and grass with no steroids or hormones. We buy produce from local farms, including year-round indoor farming operations in southern Michigan. Our seafood comes straight from the Great Lakes, and what we cannot get locally, we get flown in from around the United States every day. Our wine list is composed of new-world wines from the Americas. You will not find microwaves and frozen food at Corndance--just fresh, local food, inspired by the seasons.

We go to South Bend several times each year for Notre Dame FB games and wanted to try someplace different than our usual. Corndance is highly rated and sounded interesting. Tasteful unique decor and friendly staff. Service was attentive but a bit too pushy. You certainly wouldn't plan on a leisurely meal here-not rushed but they are busy and obviously... More

Corndance is by far the best restaurant in the area, and certainly our go-to place since we first discovered it. The place is cozy and attractive, the food oh-so-tasty and high quality, the staff kind and quick. We particularly love their flatbreads, their salads and their pastas. Their selection of appetisers is great, creative and very tasty. They really put... More

From the moment we arrived to Notre Dame we saw the parking lot full all the time. I told my husband we should try it. Best decision. From the moment we went in the service was excellent. Paulette enjoyed working there and enjoyed describing their menu that it made you want everything in it. We had the Fried Green Tomatoes,... More

I have eaten at many restaurants in the local area, including Cafe Navarre. However, this restaurant does an exceptional job at service and food preparation. The special menu items change frequently, so there's always something new to explore on the menu. Great for large gatherings or intimate moments, the atmosphere is nice, but do not fret about being underdressed. My... More

We started out with the Oysters and Bison Bites. Both were great. The corn Risotto was great too. The Chocolate Bacon Dessert was dry and I wouldn't order it again but the Butterfinger Cheesecake and Strawberry and Rhubarb Crisp were excellent. Our server Paulette was amazing!
