Great brunch here. My family loves this restaurant! Recommended

Good food but too expensive by Kristy M via Insider Pages on 12/11/2008

The Gandy Dancer has really good food, but the prices are way too high. They have an amazing mozzarella, tomato, and basil salad. I really liked their bar atmosphere and service was very elegant and professional. The only bad thing I…

Blah! by bermanap via Citysearch on 5/2/2008

Went to Gandy Dancer on graduation day and we were very disappointed. There were 9 people in our party and we got there at about 4pm, and I feel like they might have had a different menu. Of the entire group, half of the groups' veggies…

Gandy Dancer is over rated by Anne R via Insider Pages on 3/22/2008

Gandy Dancer is one of the most over rated places of Ann Arbor. It is way too expensive for what it is worth. The food isn't bad and the atmosphere is nice but still not worth the pretty penny you have to pay.

This big, lively restaurant has been an Ann Arbor favorite for more than 30 years now. by Contributor via Citysearch on 6/7/2006

In Short
Set in the historic, circa-1886 Michigan Central Depot, a massive granite and brick structure, this restaurant sports a huge menu, headed by fresh fish served broiled, grilled, poached, blackened or sauteed. The…

great environment next to a railroad track by letty k via Insider Pages on 5/10/2006

This is a great resturant with nice decor and great environment. Hidden next to the Amtrak station. The food is very good , it's not world class, but it's very nice and hot and garnished nicely. The server are always very attentive at…

Just not worth it. by Carter A. via Judy's Book on 2/18/2006

The Gandy Dancer has a reputation as one of Ann Arbor's premier restaurants. My wife and I talked for a long time about going there, and when I got a promotion, we decided to celebrate in style.I have to say, the Gandy Dancer was a…

Great Brunch by dmort via Citysearch on 1/10/2006

I've not been for dinner, but the Sunday brunch is wonderful! The server was very helpful as this was our first time here. Reservations recommended, our table was ready and waiting when we arrived. Great selection of seafood and…

Brunch is worth the visit by jpark1001 via Citysearch on 10/23/2005

While I wouldn't recommend the restaurant for regular meals, their brunch makes up its shortfalls. For the price, the selection you get definitely makes it a good Sunday brunch spot. The service in the main dining room is excellent - as…

Romantic Evening Out & Great Sunday Brunch by Sarah C. via Judy's Book on 10/4/2005

The Gandy Dancer is one of Ann Arbor's premier restaurants. Since it is a Muir restaurant, its specialties are seafood and steak, but everything on the menu is superb. It is rather expensive, but perfect for a special night out.It is…

For Exquisite Dining..... by Dalit O. via Judy's Book on 8/19/2005

The Gandy Dancer is a historical restaurant in Ann Arbor that is build a few feet from the railroad track. It has a beautiful view of Ann Arbor and the restaurant is decorated beautifully. If you like expensive, delicious food, then this…

Disappointing by laurak95 via Citysearch on 2/24/2005

Service was somewhat slow but for their prices this should not have been an issue. The mahi-mahi and salmon were dry and on the skimpy side as were the side selections. Hard to say this was gourmet. The price was the only indicator this…

the Depot by mrneeze via Citysearch on 8/10/2004

I would consider this the best seafood restaurant of the Muer restaurant family. Certainly, the train depot atmosphere adds to the texture of the dining experience. In addition to excellent fresh fish (when prepared simply), their wine…

Best Fine Dining Experience by suzanne22 via Citysearch on 7/19/2004

The ambiance of the Depot was excellent. The food was suberb in all areas. Their extensive wine list and server assistance contributed to our fine dining experience. I would highly reccommend the Gandy Dancer for fresh seafood. The…

dessert only please... by cbarre02 via Citysearch on 1/29/2003

I went to this restaurant in september of 2000. The only high point was the lemon cheesecake that i had. It was cleaverly made into a bomb shape, and served with fruit compote and a geometrical shape. My utmost to the pastry chef. …
