Ann Arbor Restaurant Week Summer 2018

My family loves Ann Arbor Restaurant Week. We take the opportunity to try new restaurants and return to some of our favorites. The Ann Arbor Restaurant Week Summer 2018 begins on Sunday, June 10 and runs through Friday, June 15. This year, it runs during the last week of school which means that Friday is the only day that we can do a family lunch.

Ann Arbor Restaurant Week - Summer 2018

Over the years, Restaurant Week has grown in popularity in Ann Arbor. Ann Arbor Restaurant Week started with restaurants in the Main Street Area Association. After gaining popularity, it has expanded beyond the Main Street Area. Ann Arbor Restaurant Week now includes restaurants throughout Ann Arbor. 

How Restaurant Week Works

During Restaurant Week participating restaurants offer $15 lunches and $28 dinners. Lunch is typically two courses while dinner is typically 3 courses. Some of the less expensive restaurants offer 2 for 1 pricing (i.e. 2/$15 at lunch and 2/$28 at dinner). If you have an odd number, some 2 for 1 restaurants will allow you to do lunch for $7.50 and dinner for $14. Others require an even number for participation, especially when the meal includes shared items.


The list of participating Restaurants is available online. The website includes menus for each restaurant. They also include hours and participating days. Some restaurants exclude Sunday lunch or are closed on Mondays. I suggest making reservations in advance when possible as Restaurant Week tends to be crowded. Some restaurants have expanded reservation options during Restaurant Week.

Past Restaurant Week Experiences

In Summer 2017, my husband and I met for lunch at Isalita on Thursday and discovered that Sonic Lunch happens that day. Be sure to factor road closures and additional parking difficulties into your lunch plans for Thursday.

Our goal during Restaurant Week is both to try a new restaurant and return to a favorite restaurant. Check out our reviews of some restaurants participating in Ann Arbor Restaurant Week:

Our Ann Arbor Restaurant Week Summer 2018 Plans

We are lucky that our anniversary typically falls during Restaurant Week. We need to review the menus and our schedule and make some choices for Restaurant Week. We will also need to factor in Top of the Park which starts on June 8.
