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!

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.

Back at MSU for an alumni event and came to the Roadhouse with friends. Many of the favorites are still on the menu and you can't go wrong with their beer menu. Since I visited they upgraded the patio and added another bar space next door. came here for bar/pub style food not a night on the town. Good appetizers... More

Harrison's is an interesting place that has obviously been around for a while. Nothing fancy but cold beer, great drinks and the Bloody Mary Bar was a nice touch. The food is good here and the atmosphere is comfortable and the service is great. Good place for an impromptu brunch or to meet for a drink especially on game day!!

We were in East Lansing for early move-in weekend freshman year, and our friends suggested Harrison Roadhouse as it is within walking distance of the campus, and they said it offered a wide range of variety on the menu. So we all went on a Friday night and luckily, it wasn't too busy at the late hour we arrived, approximately... More

Their award winning chicken chili is one of my favorite foods! It has such good flavor! Their menu is quite large so even the pickiest of eaters can find something they like.

The Harrison Road House has the BEST patio in town, hands down. Great food paired with cool drinks and attentive service. HRH is always a safe bet.

Good place with a nice sized menu to fit everyone's wants. Good sized place that fills up during any events on campus. Burgers were pretty good and a good sampling of beers to choose from. We were there for a group and the service was still very good which isn't always easy. Good spot in East Lansing.

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!!
