Fabulous DiningDelicious Sunday Brunch Buffet! Many items to choose from, deliciously prepared. Although my children are older it was refreshing to see the kid friendly buffet area filled with foods most children love. As a parent I noticed the table right away.

He did a great job and we will ask for him next time. Please let him know that we really enjoyed our lunch, because of him.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointsI've been visiting the Gandy Dancer since I was a child. This restaurant never disappoints. If you have only one choice for dining in the Ann Arbor area, choose this restaurant.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Time!We had a very enjoyable and delicious dinner, in a very delightful setting. The Moroccan Salmon was the best meal I have had in years! I will be back again soon!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place great food!When a train passes by, customers will clap and the manager will ring the bell. Really interesting! Food was really good and service was outstanding!6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery NiceHaven't been there in awhile, still very nice. Waitress was nice but not friendly. Took a first timer for restaurant week.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation Success!Our family of 10 gathered to celebrate our high school graduate and enjoyed our entire experience!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMhad a great time for our anniversayhad a great time for our anniversay we will return....6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch!Awesome location in a old train station, great service and awesome food! every person in our group of 6 loved the food.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a great place to dineBeen going there for years and a home run every time! Great menu, great food and service. Free valet parking, too. All you could ask for in a great dining experience!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Dining ExperienceMy compliments first go to Jason L and the trainee server for the excellent service they provided to our group. I had not been to the Gandy Dancer in some years and I did not know what to expect. The moment I entered the restaurant I was greeted with friendly welcoming smiles and excellent service. The food, especially the appetizers were excellent and our main courses
were way, way beyond our expectations. I have recommended the Gandy Dancer to my friends and I will definately
be a return customer, we were treated royal.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA Special OccasionThe Gandy Dancer is my choice for special occasions, whether that is Mothers or Fathers Day, a Birthday or a special date. Neither the food, wine nor the atmosphere has ever failed me. Even every-day dining is a special occasion at the Gandy Dancer.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicous & Substantial ServingsVery courteous valet. Our group of 4 had a 12:30PM "working lunch" and were seated right away. The on-line reservation tool was appreciated. Our wait staff was punctual, informative and pleasant. The food portions were very satisfying and kudos to the chef for beautiful presentations. We sat next to a window by the railroad tracks and witnessed two trains going by; and found the "ringing of the bell" amusing. We were able to conduct our conversations at a comfortable level, without distraction from surrounding "murmur" and thus felt our voices weren't an annoyance either. Since nothing is perfect, the only fault is that we reminded the wait staff for a 2nd basket of (yummy!) bread/rolls, after she had offered to bring us some.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayI took my mom here for Mother's day. They have an upper balcony area which is where we were sat. There were two waiters there and neither were very attentive. I do not spend big money on food often so I was a bit disappointed in the service. The food was really good but with us being upstairs and them being out of some of the items I did not taste all that I wanted to.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA Real TreatDecided to go at the last minute for our anniversary dinner. Didn't get a great table, but that isn't surprising considering I made the reservation an hour before the reserved time. The table was more than adequate for our needs. Josh was our server and was very attentive. He made solid recommendations on an entree for me and I wasn't disappointed. After I came home and reviewed a number of reviews I saw one review where Josh did not please that reviewer. I can say that Josh was on his game for this reviewer and I would be delighted if he waited on our table again in the future. All in all, the Gandy Dancer lived up to its reputation. We loved the great food and great atmosphere.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous dining experience!Outstanding food, service and ambiance. We will be back!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening at the DepotMy wife and I had a great evening at the Gandy Dancer. The service was friendly and very helpful. The food was prepared very well, the presentations were great6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWanted to dine there for years,Wanted to dine there for years, finally did for 10 yr anniversary. They did not disappoint. Dinner was fantastic, service impeccable, and atmosphere very unique and upscale. Highly recommended. Husband felt the cappuccino was best he had this side of Atlantic.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMChoo-chew!!40 years ago, I went to Gandy Dancer. I always thought it was a special place. Recently, I was in Ann Arbor and had the opportunity to dine there again. Since my tastes have "matured," I was a bit worried about this pricey place. But! I was not disappointed -- and went a total of three times in the week I was in Michigan. Thanks for the (new) memories!!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique and Romantic. I saw a ghost.I had a special evening with my special woman. Tim was an amazing waiter. Valet parking was easy and stress free. The food was good. As an added bonus, I saw a ghost while I was there. Pretty cool experience. I will never forget.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Meal Adds More Great MemoriesWe enjoyed a very nice meal at the Gandy Dancer on Memorial Day weekend. I first visited this location when I was a young kid back when it was a working train station. I have special memories from that time. I am happy to say I have even more great memories now with the wonderful food served there. We will definitely be back when we are in Ann Arbor again soon.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AManniversaryMy wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Gandy Dancer this year. We couldn't have been happier. The menu had an acknowledgement to us with our names on it, a very special touch. The food and champagne were excellent. Our server, Devin, was outstanding to say the least. I had a business lunch there the following day and both associates booked dinner reservation for themselves before they left. If you haven't been, then go. Experience one of the nicest dining experiences in Ann Arbor, or frankly, anywhere.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!Attentive and friendly, not overly. Excellenct recommendations and delicious meal!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!!!!!Thank you for making our anniversary special! We enjoyed our dinner very,very much!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA true Ann Arbor gem. TheA true Ann Arbor gem. The atmosphere is quietly elegant.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMall we could ask forWe enjoyed the whole experience of dining at the Gandy Dancer. We were very well taken care of by our server from start to finish. She was extremely attentive, but never intrusive. Our meals were delicious and perfectly presented; cheesecake dessert and coffee was the perfect way to finish. We love to come here and sit by the window to see the train pass by. It's low-key and romantic.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday BrunchI treated my fiance to Sunday Brunch at the Gandy Dancer on May 19th. The prime rib was wonderful!!! They even had Martha Vineyard salad! The best goodies on the desert table were the key lime bars, baked oatmeal and the sticky buns (to die for!). We were also invited to join the Landry's club and we did. Since it was my birthday month anyway, once I registered my card, I received $50 in member rewards right away so I guess I will be visiting again in the next few weeks. Lucky me!!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best BrunchI loved the "at" home feeling of this place, the surroundings were comfortable & the live Jazz band was wonderful. I really enjoyed the Bananas Foster! I will definately be returning.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Brunch!We went to the Sunday brunch and even my picky 9-year-old found things she liked! She can't wait to come back! There is something for every taste and even though it's buffet-style, the service is top notch.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeVery friendly place, energetic and wonderful employees. Valet parking was quick and easy with no Trouble. Food was amazing5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Place to CelebrateStaff were very welcoming and accommodating to our party of 18. Everyone in the group enjoyed their food. The wait staff were very attentive, prompt, and allowed us to linger as we enjoyed our time to be reunited to celebrate in this special occasion. Thank you Gandy Dancer.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNot up to previous standardsWe have been enjoying the Gandy Dancer for about 30 years and still enjoy the great food. The service has been slacking the past several times we have eaten at the Gandy.
Our table was difficult to get in to and the tables were placed too close together. There were many empty tables nearby, however a large group was placed about 18" from our table. The staff was just not very aware of the needs of the clients. I asked for water with no ice and it was served with ice. The waiters vest had food stains on it. There wasn't one big thing but many smaller things that showed less attention to detail then you would expect from this caliber of restaurant.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time and not the last!In my life, I had only gone to the Gandy Dancer twice. The first was in the fifth grade and it was for a project, so I didn't get to taste any of the food. The Second time I went, this past Friday, was absolutely amazing to say the least. Not only was the food phenomenal, but so was the service. Our server seemed to genuinely care about us and was very educated about what was on the menu. All too often I have gone to restaurants and the food might have been good but the service was horrible, but this honestly was not the case for the Gandy Dancer, I was concerned about the prices, but after I tasted the food I could see why the prices are the way they are. Everything was so tender, flavorful, and memorable. Someday, I hope to return.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant but expensive.I would only go to this restaurant for special ocassions but if I had the money I would go weekly.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a Mother's Day treatWe went here to celebrate Mother's Day, and had a very nice time. My husband thought it was way too crowded, but our daughter and I didn't mind, especially when the train went by. She was thrilled.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect venue for a large groupWe dined at the gandy dancer with a group of ten friends, one of whom uses a wheelchair. The valet parking was a huge plus, the staff was very accommodating, the food was delicious and we were never rushed. It was a delightful and relaxing meal among old friends in a lovely setting. Definitely a place we will return to.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSince it was a"double" specialSince it was a"double" special occasion it was wonderful to see it printed on the menu ( someone celebrating a dental school graduation and someone else's birthday). Service was impeccable. We were never rushed even though we arrived at different times and my in-laws " lingered" after eating. The New England clam chowder was delicious. The white fish was priced nicely and very tasty. The sea bass was not as fresh as we wanted. Looking to go back for a romantic tucked away spot.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect EveningWe were not celebrating anything. We just wanted to go somewhere different. Searched seafood and fine dining and the Gandy Dancer was one of the restaurants that came up in Ann Arbor. Made the reservation through Open Table, arrived and we were greeted right away and seated at a great table. Our server, Brandon was very up beat and friendly. He made some recommendations that were outstanding choices. Thank you Brandon for your professionalism. We look forward to dining at the Gandy Dancer again!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff couldn't have beenThe staff couldn't have been more accommodating, in spite of several last minute changes to our reservation and seating assignments. The food was wonderful - all eight of us were very pleased with our choices - I loved my sea bass, but coveted the "lacquered halibut with a wasabi cream" that my brother was having. We used to go to the Gandy Dancer for special dinners when we were growing up in Ann Arbor. All but one of us has moved away, but it was our first thought for a family reuinion dinner -- and we weren't at all disappointed. Fabulous night!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!The service was excellent & the food was beyond delicious! We will definitely be going back!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA unique restaurant with fineA unique restaurant with fine dining on one end and clapping as loud trains come by. I liked the atmosphere although it was a bit dark and noisy. The drinks and service were excellent. The food was good but expected it to be more amazing.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI had read reviews before.I had read reviews before.

For some reason this time there was a miscommunication of some sort, as they didn't recognize the name given for our reservation. Nonetheless, it was sorted and we were seated about 10 mins later. Will look to do brunch again.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Waitress, Devon, did anOur Waitress, Devon, did an excellent job of handling a party where members were arriving and leaving at different times.

Park yourself!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Gandy Dancer is a delightfulThe Gandy Dancer is a delightful neighborhood gem situated along the train tracks in Ann Arbor...they have a wonderful lunch menu (15 items for under $15) - I highly recommend the crab cakes - they are especially good. It's always a treat to visit Gandy and the staff is always attentive. It is an old building, so there are some 'quirks' but as long as one understands that, they should have a great visit!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
