This is a steak and seafood place mainly. They emphasize that their steaks are aged. One person at our table had the NY strip with ligonberry sauce and broccoli. He was pleased. Another had the summer berry salad with grilled salmon. She was pleased. I...had the special which was Copper River Salmon with a spicy coleslaw. I was pleased. Service was very good.More

Went for lunch, two of the three reluctantly. We all came away happy. Give it a try I think you’ll like it. The burgers are two thin patties well-done, juicy and very flavorful. The calamari appetizer special along with the fried green beans were a...nice starter. Good service, nice place.More

Family birthday - decided to go hear 1, they take reservations & 2, heard fantastic things! Well it started off great! We were seated, drink orders taken and they took our order for our meal. Four of us got different cuts of meat filet &...ribeye good but nothing out of the ordinary, one seafood mac and cheese, great & the chopped steak, loved. Then came the Sword of John Adams-market price - Was supposed to have pork chop, lamb chop and or lamp pop? Server asked how we like the lamb cooked, medium rare as usual. We were served a pork chop, 2 shrimp (Prawns not sure a little small) and a Vienna sausage thing (Tasted terrible- oversized hot dog) Nothing said??? We called the waitress back she went to kitchen came back - oh yeah they ran out of lamb and substituted this? Walked away??? Really??? No price change, payed for lamb. To my husband who was extremely upset, thank you for not causing a scene! Just very disappointed. Over $400 with tip and to walk out with not getting what you asked for or even asked if you might like something else, but given this to eat (what if he was allergic to shellfish?) Just not impressed for the price. We are foodies, don't mind prices if you can live up to the expectations but that one thing unfortunately ruined the whole meal!More

Corndance is a first class farm to table experience. Fresh locally sourced ingredients expertly prepared with culinary creativity and artistic flair. The kind of place that will have you returning again and again. BonAppetit!

Heard great things, but was really disappointed. Wife’s salad was really sad. Sons mac/cheese was good. My fried chicken was good, but cheddar potatoes were without taste. The biggest issue was my sons gf’s Bento Box bacon-wrapped pork. It was raw the first time served....After a considerable wait it was served raw in the middle again. After being told this was how pork is served (yes, actually told this), she was told she should tell the waitress she wanted it well done. For clarification, I actually like my pork pink in the middle, but I know what raw is. So, it was sent back again to be boxed to take with us. After paying the bill and waiting roughly 15 to 20 minutes we had to remind our waitress. Just a bad experience all around. Won’t be back...More

Can't thank Corndance enough for an incredible evening by surprising us with a private table in a private room. Throughout the evening the service was fantastic, the food excellent and the environment perfect! Really enjoyed the Hawaiian Pork Nachos as an appetizer and for the...main dish, Bison Meatloaf and an 8oz Filet Mignon grilled to perfection. Dessert was fantastic but forgot the name of it. Once again they went above and beyond, as they usually do. This place has become are favorite restaurant in the Michiana area!More

Started out with Elote app and absolutely delicious! Moved on the the Sword or John Adams (see photo), which had grilled shrimp, grill pork chop, and some phenomenal fried chicken ( liked the chicken the best). Too full for dessert!

This was our first venture out due to the Covid quarantine and we chose Corndance. We had a wonderful greeting and got the “vault” as our table. It is in their wine room with one private table. Has a speaker for you to play your...own music thru your phone. We had a wonderful waiter, Toni, who was the best. Witty, friendly, and very knowledgeable. We started with French onion dip and BBQ shrimp appetizers. Both were excellent. My wife had the Pepper Jack Mac and Cheese which she said was amazing and very cheesy. I had the 65 day aged ribeye with fingerling taters, elote, and mushrooms and onion. It was by far one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. We took home a dessert in a can called Heaven and Hell. It was a PBJ flavored pudding cake mixture. It was rich and delicious. This is a Must Go To restaurant. Thanks to the wonderful staff and my beautiful wife for making our 3rd Anniversary an amazing experience!!!!!More

Without a doubt, the best steaks in Northwest Indiana. I had a 19 OZ, 85 Day old, aged Ribeye. Then they brought the mushrooms...and potatoes...and vegetables. Man! What a meal! Amazing atmosphere. Incredible service (Thanks Vicktoria!) Not cheap but worth EVERY PENNY! My steak was...$72. My tablemates had Filet Mignon, and one had a thing that was many meats on a sword. Super Cool! I shoulda' gotten a picture of that one to share! I will be back as often as I can afford to go there!More
