Love this place. Not for the food... that sucks, but for the lively atmosphere, house brewed beers and commonly seen live night music. They keep a seasonally alternating mix of brews on tap. Nothing too exotic, light lagers and less alcoholic dark beers but still...More

When I had attended MSU in the early 2000's this was one of the main hot spots to go! They had a large menu with fresh good food. I stopped in while attending MSU homecoming to find the building very run down. I was shocked...More

Service is the worst, especially when they are even remotely busy. Food is average bar food at best. Prices are fair. You know it is bad when you ask a friend where he wants to go to lunch in East Lansing and he says "Anywhere...More

We wanted to have lunch at MSU (before going to the Dairy Store) and wanted a college experience. Harper's would be better suited for a game day or night adventure, not when school isn't in session. It looks like it'd be a blast. We had...More

Basically, this is a college bar and the food and service reflect that. The family and I went for dinner on a Sunday evening. First, had to wait 1 hour for the appetizers to show up.. When they did, only two of them were there...More

If you go there be warned. If you are over 23 years old you WILL be the oldest person in there. Food was okay. Service was really bad. Servers are obviously hired for looks not skill. Lots of tight tight skirts but no ability to...More

I recently went here with some friends from school. When we arrived it was pretty empty so we were able to get a table inside without an issue. Our waiter came over immediately to take food and drink orders. He was very helpful and very...More
