Contemporary American
LOGAN Restaurant opened in November 2004, with a commitment to providing Ann Arbor a unique and truly sensational dining experience. We are a small, independently owned and operated business. As such, we feel we can be attentive to the small details that separate great restaurants from the rest. For example, Chef-Owner Thad Gillies and his staff prepare from scratch each day the culinary components that are the base of everything we do. When they combine these elements for your dining pleasure, they transcend the French cooking techniques used to create them, in fact, they also transcend the many culinary traditions our kitchen draws from to create our “New American Cuisine”. Great food alone does not make a great dining experience, though; we feel that great wine, beer, and spirits are an essential part of that experience, as well. We are seek to offer you the very best of all of these we can obtain, always with a focus on excellent value.

Great time at Logan! Will be going back. Save room for dessert and don’t get the cauliflower! I love that they offer two portion sizes for entrees.

All in the details. My salad came served on a warm plate. I chose to ignore this. Next my medium rare entree ( how the chef recommends) came medium well . Even though it arrives presliced , it was obviously over done. It was sent back and prepared properly with the managers apology. In an effort to make amends, I was treated to a complimentary dessert.

As always this remains one of AA’s best. Consistently delivering innovative food and quality service. Use of fresh local ingredients in the hands of a gifted chef are a true winning combination. It’s hard to say what is our favorite dishes because they have never disappointed. Go. You will be very pleased with your meal!

My bride (of 52 years) and I had a diner/orchestra date and started with Logan. My request for a window table was honored and we had a delightful meal. (And it was Hash-Bash in Ann Arbor - - so we were amply entertained by the parade of "characters" which passed by the window.)

The appetizer of Duck Fritter was very tasty. Shaved Fennel salads were a novel departure from the normal "lettuce-of-some-kind" offerings and were very enjoyable. She had Halibut and I dined on Rainbow Trout - both imaginatively prepared and a delight to the palate. My "Cheese Grits" side dish was smooth and creamy - - memorable.

Wine was delicious - - but they pour a pretty small glass!

Ambiance at our 5:00 reservation was wonderful. NO noise - - but it picked up a little as the place filled up toward the end of our meal. Still - - we could hear ourselves think and could hear one another talk.

No dessert! (We would have gone to sleep at the Michigan Pops Orchestra performance had we indulged.) Coffee was some of the best I've ever had. Our waiter said if came from "Mighty Good Coffee" in Ann Arbor.

The Michigan Pops Orchestra is a collection of supremely talented and highly energetic college musicians. Best $8 per ticket you could possibly spend for entertainment.

Took our friend from the Bay Area in California, who also spends a lot of time in Paris and Rome; she loved it, as did we. Food was excellent; the fennel pollen creme brulee is outstanding.

Great vibe, helpful and friendly staff, good food. Especially like that you can get half portions of most entrees. Flavor combinations don't always hit the mark, and some dishes need more seasoning. Overall, it's very good. Looking forward to going back!

We had a nice time at Logan’s for dinner. Our waitress was nice and attentive. We LOVE the bartender Raleigh. The drinks were awesome. My only complaint was the food. I liked my dish but my husband didn’t like his. we got the petite portions but I’ll get the full next time. Regardless, it probably won’t keep us from coming back though

Intimate restaurant with great food, based on American classics. We ordered two appetizers, asparagus tempura and crab bruschetta, both excellent, and I'll try to make the asparagus at home. Our two main courses, shrimp and grits and the trout, were delicious and big enough for leftovers. The bread pudding dessert was VG too, although I'm not a dessert person. All this comes with very helpful sommelier, who nicely paired our meal with a great white Burgundy.

Service was friendly and courteous as we waited for the balance of our party. Food was outstanding and the atmosphere readily allowed for table conversation. Nice wine list and the bottle arrived at the correct temperature, not “cellar chilled” which causes one to delay consumption. Solid experience beginning to end.

My wife and I have eaten at Logan several times over the past five years. On each occasion, we have enjoyed outstanding food and professional service. The menu has remained fairly consistent over that period of time. It is always pleasing to go to a restaurant and know that the meal you enjoyed previously is still being prepared. At Logan, such dishes include duck confit, Thai scallops, braised short ribs, and the pasta Bolognese. These mainstays are bolstered by thoughtful specials. On this particular visit my wife had Thai scallops and I had the Bolognese. Each was prepared perfectly. Our server was knowledgeable and the wine steward, Kevin, was both helpful and engaging. No surprises here, just great food, great service, and the happy knowledge that Logan has maintained this excellence throughout its history.

Wife and I now in our mid-sixties have been sometimes slighted by the downtown Ann Arbor establishments.
Gladly, our dining at Logan was quite the opposite. From the thoughtful hostess claiming our coats to the excellent service from the wait staff we felt welcomed like old friends.
The Arugula Pesto Gnocchi and Walleye with Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Lemon Grass & Blue Crab Sauce were superb. I particularly liked the well-made manhattan and the Sauv Blanc fit the meal perfectly. The mousse dessert was very tasty though surprisingly firm. For those who may remember the Amaretto Mousse served by the old Maude's place, this was a faint echo of that divine treat. We look forward to our next outing at Logan in the days to come.

My wife and I eat out about 4 to 5 times a week. It was our first time at Logan. They were different in a great way. I highly recommend the Crab Avocado Toast for starters. I was really surprised at the freshnest and pop of taste for an appetizer compared with the run of the mill other restaurants appetizers. We had a wonderful experience and will be back.

Went there for a post-Valentine dinner as we couldn't get the reservation time we needed for 2/14. Also, we had been there for Restaurant Week in January 2019 and loved it. We wanted to experience a regular menu. Again, we had a wonderful mean, and as luck would have it, the same excellent servier, Zied. Everything was delicious, nicely paced and proportioned. We look forward to going there again!

We can be in NYC; Boston; London; Paris; Rome. But the best meals there are measured by the standard of Logan. And while some come close, none has raised the bar above our Ann Arbor gem. Our best moments are spent here.

We hadn’t been to Logan for far too long, and we were happy to go back and see that it’s still the delicious, attentive, remarkable place we remember. There are some new items on the menu which are great, and our old favorites are there and still as good as we remember. Service was wonderful, just enough attention but plenty of space. Wine list is great. Atmosphere is elegant and comfortable equally. So great to see the owners there as usual, still friendly and attending to details!

We were greeted and seated immediately. Our server and sommelier were attentive and answered all questions/requests. My wife had the Scallops and thoroughly enjoyed them. I had the Shrimp & Grits and they were the best I’ve ever had. Plating and presentation were outstanding. I would have to nit pick to find anything wrong with the dining experience at Logan. We have a return visit planned soon.
