Gracious, friendly, enjoyable

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

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!

we eat dinner here from time to time, and are never disappointed. The menu changes from time to time which for those of us who are local, is great, Our meals have always been delightful, well prepared with excellent services. Good wines add to the experience.
