Had a large group of 30-40 people. They did a great job accommodating us in their banquet room. Service was great and the food was very good as well.

My husband and I met at the HRH for dinner and drinks on Friday. The place was busy, but we found seats at the bar. The bartenders were kind and efficient. I loved my Green & White veggie burger, my husband loved his Philly cheesesteak. There was a man setup in the bar doing acoustic guitar, he was quite good.... More

As an alum, I thought it would be a nice place to get something to eat with my husband before heading down to the game. The main restaurant was 45 minute wait, so we went back to the 'pub' with our voucher. They honored it of course, but the food back there was limited. I ordered the rangoons as they... More

I've loved eating at Harrison RoadHouse for lunch, or whenever its not terribly busy. Food's pretty good, service and ambience OK, price not bad. But oh my goodness--avoid on MSU basketball game nights. I used to think the thing to do was to park at the Kellogg Center and walk over to Harrison RoadHouse for a beer and a burger... More

A little noisy when they get busy but a nice local bar. A fun place to have a bite before heading to the MSU basketball game. Can park your car for $20, get a food voucher, then walk back and pick your vehicle up. Great deal. Three of us had sandwiches and they were very good.

This is a classic meeting spot prior to athletic events at MSU. There is a nice atmosphere mixed with alumni and students and all are treated well by the servers. Food is average but does the trick when "prepping" for the games.

I came here after an MSU basketball game and it was incredible. Great beer selection with plenty on tap. I ordered the buffalo wings. You are going more for the quality than quantity. I did not think at first they would fill me up but they are large and amazing. Very good, will come after most MSU games now

Great parking for Michigan State football games. You pay $20 and you get a $20 voucher good for food and drink, how can you beat that!

Every year, my college dorm mates and I return to MSU for a tailgate reunion. This year we happened to choose Northwestern game which happened to be Homecoming Weekend and Midnight Madness weekend. I met up with a few of them at Harrison Roadhouse for dinner before heading over to Midnight Madness since it's just a short drive down Harrison... More

Harrison Roadhouse has a fun menu with some exotic foods along with the everyday fare. The converted gas station has great outdoor/four season seating. The bar and restaurant are a fun atmosphere for everyday and most special events.

Since 1981, Harrison Roadhouse has provided a fun, friendly atmosphere along with high quality meals made with only the freshest ingredients. Converted from a Gas Station in 1981, we have an ambience that is unmatched. At Harrison we want you to leave knowing that we did our best to ensure you had a good time and a great meal. With a large number of beers on tap, and a variety of entrees and appetizers to please even the biggest eaters. Whether it's a family dinner or a quick lunch, we have a large menu built to tackle any craving. Not Hungry? We have a full bar complete with a number of specialty cocktails, as well as over 10 TVs to make watching the game as fun and exciting as possible. Delicious Food. Great Beer. Fun atmosphere. It's always a great time at the Harrison Roadhouse!!
