I can't really review Gandy Dancer, since we never had the opportunity to try their food. We arrived on Friday night around 6:25. The sign said to seat ourselves and since more than half the tables were empty, that was no problem. There was a happy hour menu on the table with specials until 7 pm and we decided to... More

Great location, excellent service, good people and nice drinks to wait for your table, what else I can tell you about this very cozy and nice bar???? In one corner, there is a donut maker machine, bringing freshly fried donuts and the powdered sugar is right next to it as well as other topping for you to calm your appetite,... More

Great raw bar. It's casual but classy inside. They make good cocktails with a good draft list. They have friendly staff. Its a great place to meet a group of people for some oysters and drinks!

Gandy Dancer is a must if you are stopping for a drink and light meal or appetizers. Excellent happy hour menu for drinks and light food. But the main reason one should visit is the historic building and atmosphere of this preserved train station. The Gandy Dancer is part of the Grand Concourse and offers the freshest oysters, shrimp and... More

Sat at the bar on a Saturday evening. Had the jambalaya (awesome)and a draft beer. Jimmy, the bartender, was on top of his game with the recommendation and his service. Wife had chicken tortellini which was also a hit.

We were in Pittsburg recently and met with a large group for a business dinner with a large group. The service was really good and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. You have the option of also ordering from the Grand Concourse menu which offers some fancier fare. The food was very good and the portions were generous.

Beautiful old train station building from an era long past. The food is fresh and delicious. My husband and I both had Charley's Chowder, and we both loved it. I chose a lump crab meat club sandwich. Yummy! It was flavorful and bursting at the seams. Hub had Salmon of the Angels, which was salmon with angel hair pasta on... More
