We had a 7:30 pm reservation and requested seats where we could watch the large TV. Our party did not get seated or served until about 8:15! What's up with that? The service was sub-par and the food was not great... Even though we had a large party, we only had a single server who was clearly over worked. Sorry... More

Went here for darts, disappointed to find the dart area small and off to the side. Not much table space either. Drinks are good, food isn't bad.

We finally found a watering hole/restaurant in the area, oddly enough it was difficult to find that type of establishment just by driving around campus area. Reno's is in Lansing and we were happy to find an outdoor tiki/bar area with live music and friendly service. Reuben and burgers were good and drinks were cold, just what we needed after... More

The menu was okay and okay priced didn't expect more from a sports bar. However, I would expect better service. For one, it took over 40 minutes to get our food. Customer to staff ratio was not a reason, there was plenty of staff. And one waitress was downright rude! Will not go back and will not recommend anybody to... More

I was not overly impressed with Reno's East. Unfortunately it appeared that the waittresses were required to wear shorts & many of these ladies did not have the legs for such attire. In the room we were in, sitting in a booth, we were not able to view a TV. The bathrooms were very nice. The food selection was limited.

The food and variety of beer available are great. The outside seating was crowded and inside seemed dark and quiet. We sat outside. The evening was chilly. Under the canopy is warmer than out in the open. The menus are in plastic sleeves; one drink menu had water damage and was growing mold. Overall, I enjoyed the meal. Despite the... More

Went to reno's for the mark dantonio radio show. The burgers were top notch and the staff was on point. The beer was cold and the radio show was free. Done deal.

The place smelled like stale beer. I was only there for drinks and a quick burger. The burger was good. If you're a beer drinker, they offered many different kinds.

Went to E. Lansing to visit daughter for the weekend and Reno's is a walk down the street. Great place to watch the current sports. Menu was kind of limited menu because of the game that was on, although they weren't that busy. Good food and has an awesome waitress. Would definately return. Awesome microbrew list!!!

Good place to watch a game. Lots of menu choices and most of what I have eaten there is good. Pizza, grinders, burgers, wings, nachos are all above average for a bar. Lots of good beers on tap. Nice patio for summer and has heaters so they could be used into the fall. The atmosphere inside is nice too. They... More
