Nice brunch

Excellent brunch experience. Our server was extremely friendly and helpful. The food was above average. We ordered off menu, did not try the breakfast buffet, but it looked great!

We mostly eat vegan, and it can be difficult to find high quality, vegan food. The State Room always has some tasty and interesting options. Food and service are both excellent.

We have had several meals at the State Room with each room being much appreciated. Recently I had the char-grilled filet upon glace de viande with garlic mashed potatoes and sautéed asparagus. The steak was one of the best cuts of beef I've had. Just excellent! as were the sides. My dinner partner had the 10 ounce NY strip topped... More

I was the first diner at 6:30 a.m. and had the place to myself for about 15 minutes before another customer strolled in. I was greeted warmly by the hostess and seated promptly. My waitress was very warm and pleasant. She was table-side pronto to get my drink order (water) and brought it quickly. I tried the Signature Leelanau Cherry... More

this is one restaurant many forget about - the updated decor and great menu are definitely worth checking out. The staff is attentive without being intrusive. The chefs offer many innovative specials. We have always had great meals here. great selection of beers, wines and hand crafted cocktails. You will not be disappointed.

A nice selection of regional draughts. Friendly service in a relaxed casual environment. Food was very good- I had the burger and a local draught. The place was clean, service a little slow but not too slow and food was prepared after the order, not sitting under lights waiting for a customer. A pleasant diversion to my day. Parking is...

We've been here many times off and on in the past few years. Most recently, at a private 99th birthday party. Their menu has a wide variety of well prepared foods. I've found their staff to be well trained; that is important. Decor adds nicely to the experienc too. All in all - nice.

I think the State Room is probably the best restaurant in East Lansing. I hosted two graduation dinners here and always have a great out come. The menu selection is extensive and they have just added a vegan menu!! Wine list and spirits list are extensive/ Waitstaff were superb!!

Wanted to try a local restaurant for breakfast and noticed The State Room had good overall reviews for food so we tried it. Arrived about 10:20 am and were informed that it was a buffet style brunch. While we did not necessarily want all the food of a buffet we said sure we would try it. Our experience was that... More
