REVIEWS OF Nuthouse Sports Grill IN Michigan

Ann Jones

Close to downtown and the stadium

Michael Rotch

Great place, great service, clean. Paul my bartender awesome guy

David Bock

Stop in for a great burger or some lottery, and perhaps you might be the next lucky customer to purchase a winning Club Keno ticket worth $1,140 like some unknown customer did on September 17, 2019. Perhaps the bartender knows, hope the winner tipped good!

Brent Brown

Cool spot, perfect location to the stadium. Lunch specials were legit and the beer was cold! We will be back to take in a game and do some pre gaming there! Love the decor and the staff, very helpful and polite. Definitely a welcoming bunch!

Steve Pierce

Food was good ... Bartender pretty indifferent, not very friendly.

Kim Bissinger

Friendly service, good food. Service has definitely improved greatly since 2015. Not sure what happened, but I'm loving it.

Tanya Young

Food is tasty but expensive and service is terrible. I won’t be coming back

Wanda Fitzhugh

Can't recall

Amanda Burchett

The atmosphere is nice, though the volume of the music can be a little loud depending on where you're sitting. It is a nice place for a club meet up, such as a book club, during the week because it isn't very packed. This may change as baseball season approaches. The appetizers are delicious and filling.

Never been treated so poorly at any sort of establishment ever! Went in Wednesday 12/20/2017 about 6:30 pm . Walked in and was waiting to be seated as their sign indicates. Wait 3-4 minutes and don't see a single employee and there are only a few other customers in the building, they are not busy by any means. Use the bathroom and then walk around the entire restaurant, still no employees other than the bartender! Grabbed a random table and finally a waitress comes out to clear off a table near me, but she still does not approach me. I walk up to her and ask if I need to wait to be seated or not, I was never rude at any point while talking to her. Eventually the conversation ended with her snapping back at me in a rude manner to "GRAB A SEAT THEN!" while gesturing me toward a table. Again, I was never rude to her at any point before this in the conversation and I was totally blown away by this awful customer service and how rude she was. Decided I would NOT be spending my money here and on my way out I asked another employee (who finally come out from the back) what the girls name was. I was told it was ANNA. Also, the food in my past visits has been mediocre at best. I see the owner of this resturant has commented on some of the more flattering reviews of their business but I feel they have some serious issues on their hands if the people who are managing this place cannot even properly bring people to their restaurant and get them seated! I waited over 10 minutes to even see an employee in an EMPTY restaurant. Then you have staff members like Anna who are extremely rude to customers who are trying to figure out how to get seated. WON'T BE BACK AND WONT BE BRINGING FRIENDS OR FAMILY!

Justin Hood

Best servers in Lansing. Hands down.

Laurie Hemminger

Awesome customer service and delicious food!

aaa Moore

It might be a good idea to clean up the puke at your front door.

Daniel Hall

Really great food, and service was good as well. But I came with my wife and kids and they don't have much of a kids menu, in fact they just don't have one. Regardless if you want food and drinks with your friends great place to go. If you are with your family not the best but still doable.

Frank H

Solid food, great location, fair prices

Rob Schearer

Food was great but it definitely lacked good service. Employees eating behind the bar while they're making drinks and serving food. Sadly it wasn't anywhere near busy enough to justify the bad service. As good as the food was the lack of service and employees eating whike they're serving food and making drinks is enough to not go back.

Don Goergen

Love The Nuthouse.

Terra Harris

Good food, friendly bartenders & great atmosphere.

Andrew Smith

Impressive food and drink and a great little place to visit.

Ashlea Wilson

Our waitress was terrible, we had a group for a reunion and it was a 3 our block for people to come and go. New people would join the party and 15/20 mins would go by before we saw her to take their orders. My nachos were cold and had the tiniest amount of beef and cheese I've ever seen. It was like a tablespoon each of both. The fries were horrible and even the waitress agreed that they are bad and taste like noodle. They also forgot to put the parmesan on the Parmesan bread. And until of all that theur parking lot is so small I had to pay for street parking.

Barbara Jean McAtlin

Food food, great prices. Floors could use a mop and empty tables could be better bussed but we were happy with food and service.

Island Ellerby

Typical bar, good deals on domestics.

Stephen Butler

I have never been here before so we stopped and had a beer. It was Sunday and they have three dollar domestic schooners which is a good price. The Nut House is across from the Lugnuts baseball team stadium. They have a detailed menu, plenty of seating, an a big wraparound bar, also café seating outside weather permitting. The parking is limited so you may have to offsite park. It was a good experience. You may wanna meet up here before a weekend game for the lug nuts.

Cathy Schrock

Good food, good service, close to the stadium for local baseball.

James Johnson

Very good

Dan Stuber

Good food. Good service

Dion Freeman

Great food, great ambiance

Richard Shannon

The service was great the food was great and my son just had a reception for his baptism of his son and that was fantastic

Herman Fulghum

Trendy people love this bar.

Roberta E. Stanley

I regret to say I had some of the worst service I have experienced anywhere in years. I was given the wrong drink after waiting almost 30 minutes to be waited on. Then, there was an error in the drink I ordered. The demeanor of the waitress was off-putting at best. Fortunately an able male colleague took our food order, and got me my correct drink. The recalcitrant waitress showed up another 20 minutes later with a snarky attitude.

Lori Morris

We were in town for the Destination Imagination competition. We found this place last year oh, and promised to return and we did. See you next year.

Jon Collins

I ordered the turkey club. The sandwich came and it had no mayo or any sauce of any kind. It had one strip of bacon cut in half with a half slice of bacon on each half of sandwich. So pretty much for 11$ they brought me dry turkey on a bun. I had to show the waitress and ask for more bacon because obviously there is supposed to be more than that on a sandwich. The wait staff was very nice and accommodating and brought be the correct amount of bacon back to put on my sandwich. Between me asking for mayo, then realizing my sandwich had no bacon I had my food sitting in front of me for 30 minutes or more without being able to start eating it. After the bacon came it was micro waved and so tough I could hardly bite through it. And to top it off after we went up to enjoy the music they had playing that night, one of the wait staff cleared our table which included our to-go box with the rest of our food!! The second star was for the friendly staff. The food though.... Sub par

Deborah Horner

I unfortunately had a terrible experience here. We were attending the nasp tournament across the street and needed to find a close but good place for a lunch between the archers and awards. This seemed like a good spot. Everything went wrong here. No sevice for at least 15 minutes, took another 15 minutes to get beverages took over an hour to get food. Most of which was cool to the touch. Only saw the sever for three times drinks food and bill. Anything else we couldn't even get anyone's attention. This was terrible terrible terrible. They either didnt have any staff or wasnt prepared. Really not sure. Disappointed .

Karla Darnell

The Nuthouse is one of the best Sports Bar that Lansing has to offer. I love the atmosphere there.

Andrew Kruley

Nice location and they throw summer parties in the parking lot.

Shad B

Not impressed. Server was unhappy.

Lindsay H

Fun atmosphere and good food. I always go for trivia on mondays and that is always a good time!


Good atmosphere I guess but terrible flow, bar is way too cramped.

Sean Nagler

Great bar with pro foosball tables (Tornado)

Petra Koprivica

Great food!

john geiger

Wish I could remember that beer I had here.... It was awesome.

Lelee Jones

The Jack Daniel's wings are really good!

Ishita Desai

A very lively bar with lots of people hanging in there. Staff is friendly enough. Food served is fresh and delicious. Drinks are super reasonable. Not much of a waiting time in there with options to sit at a table or bar. My only experience that led me to 4 stars instead of 5 is while making a dish for me, they spilled the dip twice. I would like it if the staff is well trained and a bit professional.

Maci B

Would not recommend for reservations or parties. Came in with a pre-order reservation and it took over an hour to get all the food out. After that, the food was burnt, cold, or not fully done. Then, we had to wait another thirty minutes for them to print the receipts. The reason we ordered three days ahead of time was because we wanted them to be prepared and ready for us when we came. Definitely not the case. Completely disappointed and won’t be coming back next year. UPDATE: we recieved the note from the owner connected to this review, and decided to try this restaurant again due to it’s convenience and location. No surprise, there was no improvement. Actually, the staff was extremely rude and failed to warn us that the wait for food would be two hours. This is not exaggerated. Shame on us for coming back.

John Cordell

Nuthouse is a staple in downtown Lansing. It has been around since the stadium opened up nearly 20 years ago. It has a patio, small room for parties and a large bar with a wall of T.V.s. This is a drinking bar, food is okay and they have a decent selection of what's expected from a bar menu. They have summer live music in their parking lot which is really fun. See Starfarm whenever they are on the bill. Totally worth it.

Denise Mellott

Loved the decor and the floors! Food and the service was great also.

Amy Varga

Great service. Was apart of a big group. They seated us quick, were prompt with our orders and had fantastic customer service.

Ian Stead

Delicious pulled pork nachos. The portion is more than enough for 2 people. Great place to eat on downtown Lansing.

Cherie Hogan

Good food and drinks but the staff is always friendly.

BFE Beauty

Food was good, homemade ranch always wins me over! Fun atmosphere but our waiter was very absent. Not around when we needed him but overly there when it wasn’t necessary.

Michael Levine

Good sports bar. Great for groups after work or after a game.

Sarena Fritch

For me, this is a local favorite. Probably been here at least 100 times over the years and although the wait staff has changed, as one would expect, service is always friendly. This speaks highly of the ownership and/or management, since service is often a reflection on them, particularly when it's this consistent. Food is generally what you'd expect from a bar and has always been pretty consistent. My current favorite is the buffalo nachos. I also love the central location for Lansing. There are quite a few bars in the area so it's nice that you can go here and get decent, reliable food when you need it. And of course it is the perfect spot to go before or after a Lugnuts game.

Tammy Malish

great food

Alison Elsworth

Good portion sizes, and food was good, although couldn't tell mine was cajun. Fun atmosphere, and excellent service considering how busy it was and how many people were in our group.

Shawn Beard

Sports bar with good food and cheap drinks. The place has a pool tables too.

David Thompson

Saturday night. Walked in at 10:30 pm and the place was almost empty. Only people sitting at the bar. Had a total of 15 people in my party and it took 20 minutes to sit us. There was a visible table open with plenty of seating. I ended up helping the staff by seating my own group... We all say there for 10 minutes with no service. Why? Don't come here. Running down hill.

Martha Tou

Long wait for food after ordering. Food was good, hot and in proper amounts. Cost reasonable. Our waiter seemed flustered even though the restaurant was not full.

carter moore

Great staff & food always treat me right

SteveLaura SpeesBon

Great band - starfarm. The venue was intimate. The crowd made good use of a small space. Good time.

Tony Vlip

Great steak burgers. Had the breakfast burger and tater tots... outstanding

Jakob Russell

The patio was dirty, and the nachos I ordered were not very good. The staff was very nice, prices reasonable, and great location.

Naren M

Excellent place for food and drinks

Alison Wright

Great service with great food. A nice selection of food options and you can even get a t-shirt :)

Sherolyn Smith

Good wings and stuffed potatoes. Parking is a pain...but it's expected being downtown. Get there early for lot parking.

Ryan Gajewski

Serviceable sports bar.

ken somes

Jenna was great she is very attinatvie

Loren Roeske

The Nuthouse has some of the best waitstaff in town!This is important to me.

Jim Guntzviller

Food was good prices were fair service was on a slow Side

Ray Adkins

Always a pleasure coming here when I am in Lansing. Food and Service is always excellent.

Ken Orlich

Good food good service. The occasional happy overly loud drunk. What more can you ask for from a sports bar next to a sports stadium. Fun!

David Crawford

Slowest place ever, we had a party of 13 and right of the back they didn't seem thrilled to have us telling us they didn't have table for big group. After we suggested the waitress to placed us in tables next to each other (because the restaurant wasn't that busy) after placing our order it took them over an hour to bring our food which wasn't nothing crazy (just burgers chicken wraps salads and chicken tenders) and they still managed to messed the order

Jodi Schmidt

Wonderful place to go. Great food and awesome service.

Alan Schmidt

Great food, nice menu, fun atmosphere

Mark Chamberlin

My favorite place to catch a game with friends. They have zillions of screens and some really tasty food and a well stocked bar. Have always gotten great service quality food and a friendly place to hang out.

Ryan Lash

We had our rehearsal dinner here prior to our wedding. This is a very reasonably priced spot to have a rehearsal dinner. We chose to do a very laid back dinner since the wedding was fancy and it surely helped us in many ways! The food was good and the drinks were great!

anne bratcher

Fun place trying to make fun events.

Sapphire Len

The spinach and artichoke dip was amazing but the chicken avocado was just bad. It was overcooked and rubbery, the avocado was unripe, and the cheese was no. The lemonade was also too sweet.

Sheldon Smith

Great atmosphere,good service! Lots of beer and football!!

Thomas Mulnix

Excellent Mexican food and an excellent staff to provide it. The pool table could use a little touch up to the rails, (;..

Christina Shearer

Great drinks and music. Good atmosphere. Will definitely be going back!!!

Shawn Benavidez

This is by far the best hall for food. Many many stations to choose from. Food is always fresh. And a fair price. Its not just for students. Anyone can go for meals.

Rob Geer

Pretty good lunch stop

Juan Steibel

A classic in downtown Lansing. Good pizza. Try their fried pickles.


Terrible food, everything was way overcooked, chicken was as tough as jerky asked for med rare burger came out well done. We came before shift change so no waiter wanted to claim our table, although neighboring tables seems to get good service

Gary Gossett

Love Bars like the Nuthouse. That corner Bar feel with its regulars. Very friendly atmosphere. Pool tables and dart boards, fun place to relax after a long day at work. Plenty of T.V.s for aports.

Curtis Gaylord

Great service. Had the cod dinner which was pretty good Nice outside seating.

Jeff Adair

Had a Swell time at the Nuthouse. It's been a spell since I've been at the Nuthouse. Great Bartender. I believe his name was Paul.

Michael H

Went back, service was better, foods always good, here's your star.

Timothy Bauer

Good food, fast service.

Gabrielle Arnold

Great Atmosphere and great food!

James Crisp

Acceptable as a place for bar food, beer, priced fair.

Dave Quinlan

I am writing this review based on 2 separate visits. Back in Mid April we had my wife's birthday party there because Starfarm was playing. We walked in early (around 5ish maybe)a let the hostess know that we were throwing a birthday party and had 20 to 25 people coming. The Hostess was pleasant and put us in a section where as it cleared out we could claim the tables. Our server for the entire evening was Sierra. She was phenomenal. She worked her tail off as people come and went at different times and always kept a smile on her face and was always very nice and pleasant. Her customer service skills were top notch. My wife and I left there thinking that was the best experience we had there. Fast forward to tonight (well actually Saturday 8/10). Starfarm was back and this time we only had a party of 6. We wanted to be outside and the hostess who greater us once again got us set up with tables and chairs. My wife and I were the only ones there at the time. Our Hostess said your server will be right with you. We waited....and waited....and waited some more until 20-25 minutes went by. That is when my wife spotted Sierra as the one who waited on us for her B Day and went over to talk to her. Sierra remembered exactly who we were and offered to take care of us. And she did. With the same level of consistent, phenomenal, top notch service that she gave us back in April. The reason this review is 5 stars and not the 3 or 4 that your place actually deserves is because if Sierra. I hope she gets recognized for this review that I am leaving. And finally, every time we come in no matter where we are sat, we will ask for Sierra to be our server if she is there. She is the reason we will be back to your establishment. Thank you....Dave and Tabitha.

Gwen Alim-Young

Decent bar food.

Tom Kirkconnell

Lunch, dinner, or libation after a ballgame. Great location near downtown, convention center& ball park

Jay Briggs

Wow! We stopped for a beer and dinner and had a great time. What an excellent place to eat before a Lugnuts game. The staff was friendly and attentive. Our meal was great and domestic beer was on special and cold. We will be back


The table was a bit sticky, but the food was pretty good. I had the bbq burger and tater tots.

Sherrinda Bailey

Great place for a Younger crowd

Joshua Crambell

State won so I was happy. Quick service, good food, and great atmosphere

Cuzonya Lasagna

January 12, 2019. Great food. Great waitress. Great atmosphere. Great experience. Thank you❤️

Kristal N

Starfarm was out so it was super packed. Our waitress was very sweet and was very timely despite the obstacles she had to fight through to get to us. My only complaint for the night was that there were multiple men that were "sloppy drunk", spilling beer time after time, running into the back of my chair and being rude. This just made the experience less than perfect. I know that that it's a bar and I should expect such behavior, but on a night when there is very little wiggle room, I think the tolerance should be a little less lenient. Overall, the Nuthouse has remained one if my favorites in Lansing.

Nick Hatt

Good time! Well balanced staff

Katharine Smith-Buckler

Large menu of bar food with a tap list of local favorites

Joseph Connolly

Buffalo Chicken Wrap was exactly what I needed today.

Ken Mascheri

Decent food. Staff was not very friendly. Placed a to go order and felt like I was bothering the bartender.

Josh Arnold

I've eaten a lot of burgers in my nearly 30 years of living. The BBQ burger I just consumed for lunch is easily one of the best I've had. The sweet potato fries were great too! Last but not least, the cheese bread was a delicious appetizer. Great experience!

Kevin H

Excellent food. Their happy hour is one of the best in town!

sheri conrad

Place was not that busy but waited forever on waitstaff and she forgot a few items

Alice Kilvington

Nice bar, however the service was a little slow

Larry Brown

Fun times!

Darvale Thomas

Great service fun place...

sushi oconnor

A Lansing Landmark, everyone pretty much knows where Nuthouse is. Open late-ish for extended hour munchies, which were very good and exactly what you wanted to finish off the tipsy night. I will probably be watching the World Cup here summer 2018 on one of the many large screens.

Maggie Mac

Appetizer (chips and salsa) came out over an hour after i ordered them. I offered a friendly reminder but that didn't spark any motivation in our server to bring out the food. Server didn't even bring back all my change when i paid cash for my bill.

Rick Martineau

Great food and awesome bartender's

Robert Lone

Really load place. Food is good. Fun place to go with friends and family to watch a game.

Me Felice

Very limited late night menu but good food and fun atmosphere.

Bradley Signor

I always stop here when in Lansing.

Cheryl Holmen

Great food and service

Keith Nelson

Nothing special at all. Decor and bathrooms are run down, smells like a frat house. Bartender was cool, and attentive. Beer selection wasnt that bad either. Edit** thanks for taking the time to reply. The issues more specifically that I noticed were; the bathroom sink doesnt shut off unless its balanced just right, the porcelain is worn through on one of the stalls, floor was dingy, bar chairs we had were loose, and the bar top is some type of lament. I appreciate the invite to return, but I don't live in Lansing. I was just passing through.

Cody Barber

Went there today and the service from my server was not to par she got one of the orders wrong and the food. one order was a burger the the burger was very salty like it was soaked in salt when the bill came nothing was fixed the burger wasnt even eaten and it wasnt taken off the bill? I have been here twice and the first time was the best this time not so much

ARG Glenn

Foods very good excellent reasonable price I do not like the lights it messes with my eyes. Thank goodness for outside eating and it was a very great day to be outside.

Jordyn Potter

The food is great

Rez Kayto

A place that has great food, lots of TVs for your favorite sports and music to go with it. I had the steak quesadilla, it was one of the best I've had

Erik Robinson

Nice people. Lots of big screens.

Jimmie Stanley Jr

Good atmosphere, pretty busy on weekends and on game days but worth the wait.

Ray Ray Montoya

Better than average bar food, good atmosphere on game day-not cheap.

Becca Anderson

Quick service during lunch, good variety of specials. Makes for an easy lunch stop without breaking the bank.

Richard Gilchrist

Great for an after work drink. Friendly, fast professional staff. TV's were a bit loud for conversing.

Kody Kosloski

Good food and good beer

Andrew Lestrange

Took a minute to get seated then was very loud. Nice staff. Good food

Sara Wohltjen

Matt grieco

Not a bad little place. Decent for selection

tracy marinoff

Fun & yum!

Della Scott

I only got fries to go but they were good and fast.

Alex Ekwuaju

Great vibe and deals for the downtown area!

Tim Horn

Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and their wet burrito is awesome!

shivam bajaj

Went here with my friends and had a great time. A perfect bar in a great location. Had their jalapeno sauce burger which was amazing. The service was friendly and fast. It can get really crowded and loud in here though, but I like it.

Lotus Flower

Came out to get pizza I used to work there everybody treated rude as hell I came in to eat ur not a customer once u work there.

James Davis

Great food at reasonable prices.... Close to downtown

Dustin Pline

Great place to watch MSU win!

Todd Coats

A great atmosphere

Jon Lambert

Good food

Natalie Garr

Came here for the first time because it was the closest place with a kitchen open later. Was hoping to find a new place to come to... The food was okay, definitely a lot of options that I’d be interested to try next time. I probably shouldn’t have gone so close to closing time but the service was pretty bad. The bartender had friends in (he told us they were) and just hung out with them the whole time and left us without water and no utensils or condiments when our food came. 2 stars for being open late, probably would only come here again if I was desperate and this guy wasn’t working :/
