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.

This was a special event dinner (Medieval Fantasy). The food and beverages were researched to match period and everything was wonderful. Staff and many patrons were in costume, making for a very fun evening.

We visited Logan for our 42nd anniversary. This was our first visit. We were lucky that it was a rare nice day and we opted to sit outside. Courtney was our server and she was great. My wife had the quail and I had the steak. Both were perfect, as well as the accompaniments. The only misstep was the soft-shell crab. My wife was looking forward to it since it's a seasonal dish, but hers had far too much batter and was a little mushy as well. I'm not knocking off for this on the overall score because it was otherwise a wonderful experience.

Our party of four dined on Thai scallops, Bay of Fundy salmon, Confit of duck leg and the pork chop special. All entrees were superb, wine and cocktails pleasing to all and the service top notch. What are the rest of you waiting for? Go to this charming and unassuming place for an exceptional meal and reward yourself accordingly!

Logan always has a great varied menu. We really like that the entrees come in 2 sizes, so one can get the smaller of the two and then taste/try an appetizer/salad/dessert. Logan is a favorite for fine dining; my wife enjoyed the walleye very much, my duck leg appetizer and leg of lamb were very good, but not perfect. Logan's chef has set such a high bar for me that I unfairly expect the perfect meal every time. It was just a "Thad" off, but I will be back, of course, to try other courses in the future! The staff, the hostess and server, were wonderfully attentive! Thank you.

The food was of high quality but lacked flavor. The duck confit was a little disappointing and needed more bite. The portion was small but overall it was just ok. I would not order it again. My wife had the steak which was excellent though also lacked flavor which was surprising since it was in green peppercorn sauce. It was probably one of the most tender steaks and we both felt we would order it again. Service was a bit slow as we ordered dessert which was not presented to our table for at least 15 minutes. Nevertheless, we will be back as the overall experience was good.

Food was great! Logan has really upped their game in the last few years—the food here is among the 2 or 3 best in A2. The wine list is also great and the prices are approachable. Tomahawk pork chop cooked medium rare was delicious and the scallop dish was spot on! Tempura bacon app needs some work but the salads were great.

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.

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
