We love making our food from scratch. We could not do it without our local farmers! Fun atmosphere, upscale cuisine, craft cocktails and local artist gallery as decor.

    We dined at The People's Kitchen for the first time on a Sunday evening for dinner. The servers were very nice and polite, they just didn't fill water glasses all that often. Our dinner took a LONG TIME to come out; maybe 45min? The food was delicious though, once it arrived. A couple people at the table commented about the portion sizes, but I thought there was plenty. Maybe not the usual American excess but an ample amount on our plates. I would definitely go back for the food with the expectation that my dinner might take a while. Probably wouldn't take my family or go on a date night when I have a place to be in a timely manner.

    We had a fantastic meal and service got our group of 9 during a very busy MSU graduation weekend. Our server was outstanding!! Very knowledgeable, anticipated all of our needs, and was fun to interact with. The food was simply incredible. Beautifully presented, just the right flavors and texture and appropriate portions. The drinks were appropriately boozy and delicious as well. Our only slight complaint was that it was very noisy, but it kind of goes with the vibe of the place. Our entire experience was top notch! I wish we lived closer and could visit frequently!

    Peoples kitchen doesn’t miss. We were sat immediately, 6 of us, at the long table near the front of the restaurant that is sectioned off. The table probably sat 10-12 comfortably and we were able to spread out, be loud and enjoy our drinks and apps entrees and desserts. Our dining experience was fantastic, the smoked bone marrow and mussels were excellent, 5/6 cocktails hit the mark, we felt the boulevardier fell short and was too vermouth heavy. Wine was fairly priced and our waitress gave a great recommendation four our groups needs. Entrees were all great, highlighted by the scallops and the wagyu steak, the duck breast and halibut were also on point. Desserts were simple and perfect. Our waitress gave great care to our table when needed and food arrived well spaced to make a great night out among friends.

    Service was a bit slow to get to us and get our drinks. Appetizer was quick and delicious. Entrees were good. The chicken was not hot nor the Purees underneath it. Wife’s short rib was fantastic and hot. Cinnamon Roll dessert was fantastic but not sure it is a $12 dessert.
