We had last been to the Roadhouse a year ago and had the most delicious hot crispy French fries, which -- at our most recent visit-- we were salivating to get again. Unfortunately, instead, the entire meal was a disappointment: the staff were lackluster, the...More

With its proximity to MSU (having just dropped our dog off for surgery), we stopped at the Harrison Roadhouse. We went with a large order of Crab Rangoon and the Pork Sliders (oh, yes, a couple glasses of wine). We were really impressed with the...More

It's proximity to MSU is what makes this restaurant a good option as the service is mediocre and the food better than average. Prices are fair for what you get but it's a local bar.

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....More

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!!
