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.

My husband and I went for an anniversary dinner. We arrived on a Friday evening around 6:30pm without reservations but were seated within 10 minutes despite the crowd. The entire wait staff was amazing and attentive. Our waiter took his time and went through every special in detail since it was our first time there. All of the menu items... More

We went to this restaurant for my Boyfriend's birthday, and the atmosphere was very romantic. We were seated at a very private feeling booth although the booth was at the edge of the main dining area. Our waiter was very personable and had excellent knowledge of the food offered at the restaurant. My boyfriend had the tuna steak and said... More

I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed my dinner a few weeks ago at Corndance. The food, the service were over the top. The waiter bent over backwards to accommodate us and to answer all of our questions. The food was amazing. The Brazilian Steak was to die for. Very tender and juicy. The variety of food they...

We were very impressed with our experience, and it definitely lived up to the reviews' hype! The service was attentive and polite, the food was delicious, and the... More

I visited Corndance while on business in Indiana. Great atmosphere, awesome music in the background (not too loud) and fabulous menu and wine list. But due to my allergy to garlic, the chef said he could only do a steak, baked potato and steamed broccoli? Really? It told me that nothing was prepared fresh. So disappointed!!!!! Seriously, Everything had garlic... More

This has been one of several trips we've made to Cordance. It is one of the Best restaurants in Mishawaka, Indiana. Most of the food served is local sourced and very fresh. Tonight we had the Brazilian Bison Ribeye, cooked medium rare. It was very lean but still very tender. My wife had the Truffeled Chicken Carbonara, which she loved.... More

It's unfortunate that Corndance is only open for dinners but it's well worth the trip! Make a reservation, though, and be prepared for a unique menu prepared from local foods with creativity. Everything is made fresh and flavors are combined in interesting ways. The portions are more than ample! Consider splitting sides, for example. And save room for dessert!

Michael was our server and he danced us through the evening with grace, attentiveness, and impeccable menu suggestions. We began this wonderful evening with the Macaroni and Cheese Flatbread Pizza and Bison Bites. Out of this world flavors and the freshness of the ingredients cannot be matched. They raise their own bison and have gardens full of fresh ingredients. I... More

On a business trip and decided to stop by because of the good reviews. Had a great experience- the waitress was very knowledgable about the menu and the specials, and the food was cooked perfectly and tasted great! Would definitely go back!

I would consider this an upscale restaurant based on the prices of the meals and the conservative portions. The food and service were both quite good, but this is the kind of restaurant reserved for special occasions, I strongly recommend calling ahead for a reservation. I have driven by this place a number of times and the parking lot is... More
