As always, the food was superb! My husband had the strip steak and it was cooked perfectly. The steak was tender and accompanied by an array of vegetables he said were excellent. I had the Bistro Salad and added chicken. The chicken was grilled and very tender. Delish! We finished with MSU Dairy Store ice cream and it was creamy and wonderful. We eat lower carb, but it was definitely worth the cheat!

The salad was bland. The mushroom soup was just ok. The mushroom salad barely had mushrooms.

Nice meal, noise level was reasonably for easy conversations.
The eggs were cold and didn't taste fresh. The beef roast was dry. Everything else was great

The State Room at the Kellogg Center on the Michigan State University campus has become a"go to" spot for business lunches, birthday celebrations, and some of the finest food in the Lansing area. It is ever reliable and the choices are outside the box.
Thank you for the feedback. We are so pleased that you have chosen to make us one of your favorite dining destinations in town. We appreciate your business and look forward to welcoming you back soon.
This was a special lunch with our favorite priest. Our waiter, Anthony, was excellent and even called our priest Father!! Food was excellent. A bit loud in the restaurant due to all the graduates and State Police that had a gathering outside the restaurant. Just a great experience during the holidays!
Thank you for your kind words. So pleased that Anthony made you feel welcome and provided you with such excellent service. We will be sure to acknowledge his good work! Thank you again for your support and patronage.

Thank you so much for your kind words and the 5 star review! We appreciate your patronage and support. Look forward to seeing you again soon.
I had the vegan sweet potato dish that was very bland, ended up taking it home and I'll add onions and garlic.

Food was delicious and excellent servcie

The food and service were outstanding as usual. The state room has become our dining choice when we are attending a show at the Wharton.
Thank you for your kind words. We are so happy to be your top choice before shows and concerts at Wharton Center! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
It was perfect except for dessert which was the Trio of Tartlets. We enjoyed the Coconut Tart but the other two were too “runny” and felt undercooked. Waitress said they were supposed to be like that. I wouldn’t order again. However, the Short Rib Appetizer, Arugula Salad and Cauliflower Curry were delicious and we would definitely order again!
Thank you for your feedback. We will share your comments with our chef so that we can improve our operations. So pleased you enjoyed your experience with us and look forward to seeing you again soon.
We really enjoyed our dinner at the State Room. We could actually hear each other speaking, even though the restaurant was busy. The food was delicious and our server was terrific.
Thank you so much for your kind words. Pleased you enjoyed your experience with us. Look forward to caring for you again soon.
It was my partner’s birthday dinner. The entire meal was excellent. The cocktails, the appetizers, our main courses and the dessert were all delicious.
Took a former student employee to dinner to celebrate the accomplishment. The Server was nice enough but not at first. At first, she was rather cool and standoffish. It wasn’t until the end of our dinner that she warmed more. I don’t know what it was and kept wondering about it. All in all it was not my best State Room experience and it could have been better. Food was good but nothing that knocked my socks off. This place has good ambiance, better than good appetizers and better than good desserts. I’ll return ...because -for now- it’s the place I’ll take my student employees to celebrate their accomplishments.
Thank you for your feedback. I am so sorry you felt slighted in any way. It is always our goal to exceed your expectations in both food and service. I will certainly follow up with our team so that we can improve our operations. If you would like to speak with me directly regarding your experience I am available at 517-884-8135 or email@example.com. Thank you, Marianne Bacon
Wonderful setting for a business luncheon. Good food choices, excellent service. Table spacing and ambiance is conducive to conversation. Parking to the south.
Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate your patronage and look forward to serving you again.
We went for an Anniversary brunch and were not disappointed. Our server Lily was friendly and attentive. The food, as always, was delicious! We will be back.
So please you enjoyed your anniversary celebration with us. Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
The dishes at the State Room have improved by leaps and bounds over the last year or so. Dishes are constructed with interesting ingredients and combinations, and they all work together in most satisfying ways. My cold grilled asparagus appetizer was perfect in every way, from the way the spears were cooked to the toppings. The richly cut lamb chops were satisfying in taste and cooked exactly as requested. The Halibut dish was subtle, but heartwarming. The Burrata appetizer has been awesome. The wine list is expansive and well considered. Service is friendly and attentive. So, after many years of disappointingly second-rate meals, the State Room is now experiencing a Renaissance of sorts that is worth paying attention to.
Thank you for your kind review. So pleased that you are enjoying our current menu. We strive to continually make improvements to stay innovative and use the freshest ingredients. Our new menu will be released October 7th, we hope you will be equally impressed with your future visits. Thanks again for your continued support and patronage!
Inexperienced wait staff. To be expected as it is a college campus hotel. Would only recommend if the location important for your other plans.

I was meeting some old classmates and wanted a place with good food and a reasonably low level of noise, not something that is easily found these days. State Room fit the bill.
Thank you so much for your kind words. So pleased you enjoyed your meal and were able to spend time with your friends. Hope to see you again soon!

We often forget about the State Room but it is a very good restaurant. It is a part of the School of Hospitality of Michigan State. The menu is varied and seasonal, the wine list is very good, and pricing in general makes this spot a value.
Thank you for your kind words. We are proud to support our students and so pleased you enjoy your time with us. We appreciate your support and patronage, hope to see you again soon!
The environment was perfect for a lunch meeting. Our waiter was courteous and attentive. Excellent service. As someone who was formerly a server, I appreciate great customer service. The food was great and my guest commented on how fresh the greens were.
Thank you for your kind words. We strive to deliver outstanding guest experiences. So pleased that Amanda took such great care of you. We will be sure to acknowledge her efforts. Thank you again for your support and patronage. Look forward to seeing you again.
Amanda our server was excellent. She was very friendly and attentive. The food and drinks were not very good. The strawberry margarita on the drink special menu was not good. We ordered steak and salmon and both were overcooked. Amanda was very apologetic and brought out a dessert sampler to help appease for the less than desirable food. That was a very thoughtful and appreciated gesture. Hopefully, that was just an off night for the bartender and chef.
Thank you for your feedback. Our apologies that you did not enjoy our featured drink, the Strawberry Mojito. We strive for excellent food and drink with each and every meal. I am so sorry your meal was a disappointment. I will share your feedback with our team so that we can improve our operations. Pleased that you enjoyed Amanda's service and the complimentary dessert.

Overall excellent and our waiter was very good
Everything at the State Room was exceptional. The wait staff was helpful and very attentive . The food was well prepared and outstanding. I had the Seared Salmon and my wife had the Filet and they were delicious. We were staying at the Kellog Center for a couple of days for a wedding and the food at the reception was also outstanding. Overall experience at the State Room and the Hotel and Conference Center was well worth the stay.
Thank you for your incredibly kind review! We are proud to be a part of Kellogg Center's mission to deliver outstanding experiences to our guests. So pleased you enjoyed your time with us. We will be sure to share your compliments with our team. They love hearing such great feedback! Thanks again and we hope to see you the next time you are in East Lansing.
