Crunchy's is the quintessential college bar: beer buckets, buckets of fried goodness, tons of burger options, and wonderful(ly horrid) karaoke 3x a week. Very fun, super loud, service can get insanely slow, but you'll enjoy yourself.

Great lunch. Fortunately (for us), not much of a student presence at that time of day, but still very busy. Squeezed a couple of spots at the bar. Burgers, wraps, tater tots, First Oberon of the spring. Definitely will try to get back there.

This place is conveniently located near MSU Campus which is great. On the inside, it looks like a regular pub, but the food and the people make the difference. The servers are super friendly all the time, always smiling regardless if the place is packed or with few customers. The food is a charm. Try the double burger if you... More

We came here for dinner before a Michigan State basketball game, arrived quite early so no trouble getting a table. Place was packed by the time we left though. Had decent wine, beer, I had a great black bean wrap for dinner, really liked it, came with crumbled black bean burger, hummus, veggies, and fries. The fries were such a... More

Solid good basic food done up extremely well; during Michigan State University sessions can be crowded during lunch and dinner hours.
