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!!

While we did not necessarily want all the food of a buffet we said sure we would try it. Our experience was that... More

I've dined at the State Room many times over the last 35 years. I had an office in the Kellogg Center for several years and it was always a nice place to take guests for lunch. Years ago the food was so wonderful I would rave to my friends about my great meal at the State Room. My last two... More

The state room is the restaurant at the Kellogg Center on the campus at Michigan State University. The food is excellent the student service is also excellent and you're likely to find former pro football players and all Americans who graduated from Michigan State eating there on game day.

Love the staff! Nice student waiter. Food and wine were very good. Appreciated that they have a kids menu. Had a Fenn Valley MI wine. Loved that they'll cork unfinished bottles. We'll go back!
