We had our small ceremony (30 people) and reception (120 people) at the Gandy Dancer October 2014. We felt completely taken care of, accommodated, and most of all, we also felt like the staff was also having a good time. Food was awesome and it was great to have all of our guests comment on how good everything was! It was so nice to have tables, linens, chairs, and the bar set-up and including in the banquet pricing. Kristina, the group sales manager, was our contact person and was able to assure us that everything would go off without a hitch, and it certainly did!

I cannot say enough good things about the Gandy Dancer and their coordinator, Kristina. Everything was AMAZING!! We had both our ceremony and reception at the Gandy Dancer and everything turned out perfectly. Our top priorities: great food, great service, room for up to 150, fun ambiance, close to the airport and activities for guests, and all at a reasonable price. The Gandy Dancer not only fit the bill, but they went above and beyond my expectations! People could not stop raving about the food and the service. We ended up having 110 guests, which left plenty of room for an aisle, the sweetheart table, the place card table, and room for guests to mingle. The fact that this building is practically the only building on the street provided such a magical, old world ambiance, and every couple hours when a train went by, guests got super excited. It was totally, totally awesome!

We also knew that we wanted a venue with a great coordinator, since we planned our wedding on our own, and I have so many good things to stay about Kristina, I could go on and on. From our first meeting, she was professional, communicative, and flexible - in two words: she rocks! I knew that everything would go so well, but everything turned out better than I could have imagined. Kristina and her staff helped with the setup of decor (which looked amazing) and when we made a couple changes to the timeline during the reception, she rolled with the punches and was super accommodating; she even helped keep me calm before I walked down the aisle. I would recommend the Gandy Dancer in a heartbeat!

Absolutely AMAZING!

My husband and I were so impressed with the Gandy Dancer team, ESPECIALLY Kristina! She was quick to respond to all of my questions and was willing to meet with me on multiple occasions to discuss the details of our day.

Our wedding reception at the Gandy Dancer was absolutely incredible. The staff was on point and the plates of all guests were served hot and at the same time. I can not tell you how many rave reviews I received on the food! And the CAKE! Our cake was designed to perfection by their pastry chef Bryant, he turned my inspiration image into a real life replica and it tasted phenomenal!

I would HIGHLY recommend this venue to future brides!

We absolutely LOVED having our wedding at the Gandy Dancer! Our only concern was that the space would be too small for our 130 guests, but it was perfect. There was ample room to eat, dance, and socialize, and the cozy space just made it feel like more of a party. The food, as always, was EXCELLENT. Aside from being in our favorite city and being a fun, unique location, the food was the main reason we chose the Gandy Dancer - and it did not disappoint. The bar service was also great, and the pricing was more than reasonable for food and drink, with no fixed rental fee. Last but certainly not least, Kristina was AMAZING at helping coordinate everything. She is incredibly friendly and made the planning process much more enjoyable. She was also very accessible in helping address our questions, and consistently provided great recommendations regarding food options, seating arrangements, timing, etc. We would highly recommend her and the Gandy Dancer to anyone looking to do a fun wedding in Ann Arbor! Thanks Kristina!

We had 100 people at our reception outside next to the wawater fountain this past August. The wait staff, servers, and wedding planner at The Gandy Dancer were 5 star the entire evening. It was worth the delicious choices for dinner, which included salad and bread, tea and coffee, and they even cut our cake for free. Did I mention the wedding planner was included as well? We also decided to pay extra to have an open premium bar all night, which was perfect IPA beer selections and wine. If we renew our vows and have another gathering, we wouldn't hesitate to use their services again. Excellent!

We hosted our wedding reception in the Mezzanine Room at the Gandy Dancer. We originally had our event planned at another venue that cancelled a couple of weeks before our event. The Gandy Dancer took care of us quickly and was very responsive during the planning phase.

We could not have asked for anything better the day of the event. The service was amazing, the food was delicious, and the venue was beautiful!

Having our wedding reception here was an amazing experience. I felt as though Kristina - the event coordinator for the Gandy - was at my "beck and call" for any question or issue big or small, despite having many, many other events to attend to throughout our contracted time. She took care of nearly all of the decorating, which was a huge weight off of my shoulders the day of. Our guests were very impressed with the waitstaff and the food; having a plated meal as opposed to a buffet was a nice touch! Aside from our personal decor items, they took care of clean-up as well.
We are so happy that we chose the Gandy Dancer!! Thank you Kristina and staff!

We had both our ceremony and reception at the Gandy Dancer. Talk about a great decision! Not only does the building itself have character and charm, but Kristina is an incredible coordinator. I am still floored by her superb attention to detail and crazy organizational skills. We got so many compliments about the intimacy of the venue and the incredible brunch spread. Our guests didn't even have to worry about searching for parking, since the Gandy Dancer includes complimentary valet service. Five stars!

We had our reception at Gandy Dancer and it was great! We had a custom menu (all vegetarian) and the food was delicious. The weather was perfect that day, so we had all of the sides up on the outdoor patio and the fountain looked so pretty at night. We had about 95 guests, which was a good number for outside to leave enough room for people to move around. Throughout planning, Kristina was flexible and pleasant to work with, and always willing to meet to go over additional details. I recommend the Gandy Dancer in Ann Arbor as a fun, unique wedding venue.
