Second visit to this location - it is a great treat as it is pricey for dinner. The seasonal special entree was excellent. Service was very nice. Love the atmosphere and decor of this unique setting.

The restaurant is located in the historic old train station. It has been majestically restored and envelopes you in a wonderful dining environment. The quality of the food matches the quality of the ambiance.. 2 of our party had the pan roasted apple jack see bass. They out did each other with praise for the entree. I had the Fisherman's...

Wife and I stopped at Gangy Dancer tonight for happy hour, some 35 years since last visit. Ambience is still top notch, and we found their happy hour to be terrific, excellent beverage selection, and many nice choices on food menu at great prices. We definitely enjoyed and plan to return soon.

This place has been around for years. Maybe we just came on a bad night, but our dinner was overcooked, they forgot our sides and our bill was over $100.00 w/o tip. It has a nice ambience though. I might give it naother try, because I hvae had good experiences ther years ago.

Enjoyed the ambience. There are different settings throughout this restaurant. The wolverine room in the way back is nice stone room. We like the bar. Always seems the bar tenders are good servers. We have found Kyle witty and attentive. Love the valet too.

This is an upscale restaurant with valet parking. Many great menu items have been staples for years. The decor is kind of cool because it is housed in an old train station. The service can vary tremendously, we've had wonderful and horrible service there. All in all, it's worth the trip, especially for a special occasion.

Great for lunch/brunch and dinners, and atmosphere is nice. Has valet parking which is recommended as parking is limited.

Everything is just great at the Sunday brunch from the complimentary valet to the fine service to the abundant feast. Two kinds of salmon, blintzes, myriad pastries, meats, eggs, salads--you can start with a breakfast plate and switch to a hearty dinner! Not a bad value at $26 per person but not for anyone on a budget. (For that price... More

Went to a wedding in the patio area. It was beautiful. Every single person I encountered from the valet to the wait staff to the bartender was absolutely wonderful, friendly and accommodating. The appetizers were amazing and creative. The entree (filet mignon) was quite over done. Overall, this is a beautiful place to go to a wedding and it's mostly... More
