Reno's is a really great bar, with friendly servers that supports live bands, all things to really like. It is a little choppy inside, but still has a good "bar" feel. Food is normal sports bar offerings, and tasty. The problem is, nothing here stands out. With some inspired management, it could really elevate.

We unfortunately arrived after they had apparently been slammed by customers so the place was a mess. Felt bad bringing a party of 15 and it took a while for them to recover. Staff was friendly and helpful. It took quite some time for our food to arrive. I ordered Bourbon, Bacon, and Blue burger medium, but it certainly well... More

The layout is nice, and they give free popcorn. The chicken tenders and fries taste good, but it's really your typical bar food. The half off hurricanes were delicious, and the daily specials are interesting.

Reno's East has a big menu of tasty foods that are well prepared. They support live music and have a lovely patio for summer nights. However, we had some issues. The waitress didn't listen carefully and brought a salad with chicken to a vegetarian. The drinks were so weak as to make me wonder what, if anything, was in them.... More

We decided to stop here as the place was hopping - a great sign of a great restaurant when the parking lot is FULL. We were so glad we did. They have 100's of beers on tap (now this isn't the reason we did stop) but it was pretty cool! They had great drink/happy hour prices--and a wonderful menu. My... More

A group of friends and I went here on St. Patrick's Day. We got a couple rounds of drinks. We didn't order food, so I can't comment on that. The place was not super busy, but it was early.

We went to this location after an event at MSU. There were seven of us comprising of parents, grandparents, and student. We arrived and were seated almost immediately...super start but things went downhill fast!! This place is known for burgers and pizza. Neither of which take very long to prepare. We ordered and waited approx 1 hour for our food!... More

We love to go here in the summer. It is the best patio in town! I love the sandwiches and the service is always very good.

When I moved into my home in East Lansing, I found this restaurant. It has a diverse menu that goes from salads, wraps, bar food and more. I went there for two reasons. One was they serve vege-burgers and popcorn which are two foods that my then older teenage daughter would eat. The other was the patio in warm weather,... More

Reno's East is a great location and nice atmosphere to go for lunch. If you are kind of in a hurry to grab lunch and get back to work, forget it! When you are finally acknowledged of your presence... you will eventually get your order taken then maybe you will get your food eventually. It might even be hot still..... More
