We met a friend here to talk about grad school at MSU. Easy to find, free parking (with voucher in restaurant) and great food/service. We ate breakfast items, and we were all very happy with the food. Eggs as you like them, high quality side dishes, really good toast (I know, but I hate bad toast!). Great selection of breakfast...

Great food and excellent service for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their special events are particularly well done and very enjoyable. Their June and July patio Thursday dinners with live jazz were marvelous this summer, even when it rained and everyone was brought inside including the jazz band. The lounge is also very good with an excellent selection of bar food.... More

We weren't staying at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center, which is home to The State Room Restaurant, but were attending an event there. We were lucky to stop in before the lunch rush and be seated, without having a reservation. They have a beautiful lunch menu with a large variety to choose from, something to suit everyone. They also... More

This would have been a fine place to dine I believe--however upon making early reservations my husband and I intended to dine alone...much to our surprise upon check-in at the desk we found we were being placed with 4 other people and people I didn't like the appearance of--let alone dine with. It was not pleasant. I hope to try... More

In keeping with the tips on touring East Lansing and Michigan State University, it's a must to stop at the Kellogg Center (or better yet, stay there, it's a full service class A hotel!) and eat at the State Room. The MSU School of Hospitality Management ranks #1 of #2 (after Cornell, boo) as the top school in the country.... More

The State Room in the Kellogg Center on the campus of Michigan State University offers well prepared food in a comfortable setting. The main dining area is quiet and affords moderate privacy. The atrium area is nice on a clear day but can be on the noisy side at times. The menu rotates throughout the seasons and features Michigan products... More

We took our granddaughter there for dinner and had great steaks and seafood. Service was timely but as salad was extra, it was a little expensive. We cleaned up our plates with no leftovers.
