Average college bar food - low quality at a fair price. As other reviews have suggested, the waitstaff is not too friendly and not at all helpful at times. We ordered a large pizza and a burger. The burger was ok, average mass produced cheap beef burger and the pizza was could have been pretty good, except they burnt the... More

I was by far the oldest person in the place and I was 29 when I went there. It is kind if a dive-y college kid hangout. Not my fave but I would go again.

Went here with a friend who lives local. Love love loved the turkey burger I got. I got it on a pretzel bun with lettuce, avocado, swiss cheese, and spicy mustard. Such a great combination. Enjoyed the college bar atmosphere and the extensive and varying beer list. Highly recommend to anyone in the area!

Literally, you can get a 5 gallon bucket filled with beer. You just need yourself and 3 friends! It's a staple at MSU and a must-go venue. Great burgers too.

Crunchy's is a College hang out. The name sounds unappetizing but it was highly recommended by a bunch of graduate students. We did not have any food but really enjoyed the selection of Michigan beers found on tap. Many of us ordered flights and tried as many as we could. Our waiter was very good at helping us select beers... More

Nothing fancy by any means. Great Green n White bar! Really good food for a reasonable price. Great selection of beers and nice little patio. Always try to make it there while back in EL!

Food is definitely above average here. You're not going to find anything outstanding, but you certainly can't go wrong with anything on the menu. What you will find though, are great food deals. Monday is burger night, I think there is Taco Tuesday, and then half off pizza on Sunday! But I don't go here for food, I go for... More

Great burgers, 7 layer dip was a joke. Literally looked like a college kid made it at home. Tatar tots and beer selections good.

Convenient to campus, the food was good, although the service was mediocre at best. Waited for (yes, I timed it) 5 minutes before I had to flag down a wait person and ask to be waited on (we were a party of 8 in the middle of the room, the staff had to get around us to other tables). And... More
