Underwhelmed

We have been to the State Room on a few occasions before Wharton Event productions, and it has not lived up to the hype that surrounds it. The menu is very limited, the food is so-so and the atmosphere is average. One time that we went, there was a macaroni and cheese on the menu that was I easily... read more

Delightful service and a pretty room. The wine list is truly amazing - hundreds of bottles in stock. Wine flights available and fun. The food is excellent and plentiful. Try the cheese platter. The lamb was excellent Prices are fair. What's not to like?

Calming environment so it is easy to hear each other. The menu changes. The staff are responsive. Great wines with knowledge from staff if you want to know more. Clean with great parking.

Food and service were very good. A little pricey, however with WKAR member card we received one entree free. Not a large menu, but a nice variety of offerings that change on a regular basis. Great place for a nice evening out or before catching a show at the Wharton Center.

Coldest day of the year, we held a business meeting at the Kellogg Center and had no intention of leaving the building for anything but a 4-alarm fire. The State Room is the only choice on property, and it met our expectations. We were greeted warmly, seated promptly, served attentively. The nothing stood out in the menu, so the server... More

Many people from the area dont even know you can eat at the kellorr center. Heck, they even have a bar downstairs! They really dont advertise.Service here is usually outstanding and the menu often changes totally. A very classy place to eat for sure, and you cant go wrong.Check the web site for specials also.

The State Room is a wonderful place to dine before or after Michigan State University athletic events or cultural performances! Excellent menu with wide range of offerings. Full bar and outstanding wine selection. Helpful staff and a very nice room for dining. They honor the lifetime MSU alumni assoc card that gives 20% of your food bill. Weds is half... More

Located in the Kellogg Center at Michigan State University, the State Room is one of the best three restaurants in the East Lansing-Okemos area. The menu is seasonal and imaginative. My wife and I ate there recently with relatives and all praised their entrees. It is where we go on special occasions. We have always been pleased not only with... More

Four of us ate dinner at this restaurant in November of 2014. We shared a bottle of Malbec wine which was very good. Two of us had the trout dinner and two of us had the salmon - all the meals were delicious and tasted exquisite. The service was very good. We had a reservation for 7pm and we walked... More
