The Watershed Tavern & Grill's menu teems with house-made ground-beef-patty burgers, tender meaty sandwiches, and other grill favorites. Loaded with either chicken or beef, the cooked-to-order Bangin' burrito lounges upon a bed of beans and revels in cascading homemade sauce, melted cheese, and garnishments such as tomato and tortilla chips ($8.99). Potato-gun soldiers call truces in the name of the Shed Chips, which see russet potatoes sliced, fried, seasoned, and distributed with chunky blue cheese ($5.49). Parmesan-encased chicken breast saunters atop angel-hair pasta steeped in pesto cream sauce ($14.99). Five Michigan-made microbrews round out the sudsy trove of a full-service bar, which wields wines, 15 tap beers, and hand grips for mid-meal pull-ups.
Buddies Pub & Grill’s menu is so diverse that the nachos alone come in four styles. They range from a Southern-style plate of chips crowned with barbecue beef and jalapeños to a meatless plate of garden nachos topped with extra veggies and love letters from local garden gnomes.
For over 15 years, the eatery has sated appetites with a massive menu that includes sandwiches, upscale steaks, and seafood. Assorted burgers and salads round out the menu, along with customizable pizzas with toppings such as pepperoni, Philly cheese steak, and banana peppers.
The restaurant's three locations feature interiors that also emphasize variety, with dining tables that are flanked by flat-screen TVs, pool tables, and high-stool bar tables.
Harrison Roadhouse's Spartan chefs pack a manifold pub menu with signature items that have delighted local palates for 30 years. A secret white-chicken-chili recipe ($4.99) quiets blabbing appetites from revealing the key to four consecutive victories at the annual East Lansing Chili Cook-Off. Among more than 20 sandwiches and burgers, marble rye and homemade Thriller sauce hug the Miller's Thriller's blend of roast and corned beef ($8.99) as bourbon beef chili pours like a meaty hailstorm over a juicy Roadapple burger ($8.49).
Though Lou and Harry’s Sports Bar is in a college town, that doesn’t mean you’ll eat like a college student while you’re there. To elevate their food, the chefs have upgraded sports bar staples such as burgers, pizzas, and wings with inventive flavors and toppings. Beefy burgers arrive at tables topped with with warm chili con queso or barbecue sauce-slathered onion rings, and wings come tossed in one of 14 mild to mouth-searing sauces. Pizzas emulate the flavors of Philly cheese steak and buffalo chicken, each big enough to share with friends or trade with someone in exchange for their group of friends. Games are always playing on the bar’s giant TV and in warmer weather, you can enjoy pints of more than 60 varieties of beer on the patio.
