The Pour House
Trying to think of some other gems from years ago that I remember. The Pour House was out off of Old Lansing Rd. Kind of in the middle of nowhere. I think they were known for their cheese soup, which I do remember being pretty good. It was kind of high falootin, in a Sunday Brunch redneck sort of way.
I don't think anything went up in it's place since then. Not sure if the building is still standing
I remember going to the Pour House once -- I think my dad probably had gotten a gift certificate as a Christmas gift from work or something like that. We couldn't afford to go to places like that normally (frankly we couldn't afford to eat out at all, even fast food), so I thought that it was pinnacle of fine dining. I don't remember what we ate or really anything about the restaurant, just that I felt like a huge baller sitting there.
Three that I miss are:
Bilbo's Pizza in a Pan
"Leave the gun.....take the cannoli"
"It's not your job to be as confused as Nigel."
I miss breakfast at Don's Truck Stop.
Sawyer's Pancake House
Richards...Old 27 North. Miss their Lebanese bread and wet burritos.
Formally Brian T.
Richard's is closed? When did that happen?
It is called Rookies now. I am not sure if thye have the same menu or not but they do something right as the place is always packed.
Good breakfast after a night at that good bar named after a fish.
I didn't work there; but I did sleep with three Pourhouse waitresses, so I'm sad to hear of its demise.
Looks like they still have the Lebanese bread sticks and wet burrito on the menu.
FYI...you could get the same bread sticks at Jimmy's.
Sweden House on Waverly.
Good God that has been closed for ages. My Mom worked there as a teenager and she is 59 now.
Don't live in the Lansing area any longer, so I haven't been in there since they closed (maybe 10 years ago?). I'll have to go in there sometime when I'm up there.
Other than Tarpoff's and Dines, has Lansing ever had an up scale/fine dinning restaurant (I guess you could include the Knight Cap)? EL had Cave of the Candles for about 5 years.

Great hangover food and the hot MILF waitress,
Jimmy's is north East Lansing.
If you went to Richard's a lot, you should know Jimmy.
Didn't go alot...just enough to know the food. Thanks for the info.
+1 for Sveden House and Don's Truck Stop
lest this turn into the second coming of the "Things No Longer Here" thread........
The Landmark restaurant in front of the Lansing Mall, which became Don's Landmark (or something like that). That's where the Applebees is now.
Emil's West on W. Saginaw
Rax Roast Beef
The Anchor Inn in Frandor
the grill at All Star Lanes (the building still stands behind the Quality Dairy west of I-96 on Saginaw Hwy)
Pasquale's in Grand Ledge
The Windsor Mountain Grille existed for a few years on the site of the old Pour House
and of course, Bill Knapps

Robert's. Where the Land Shark is now. Didn't last long but was very upscale.
Win Schuler's (EL)
The Pantry (now Dublin square)
Cork and Cleaver (Now Reno's East)

Let me get this down, $100 million. Oh wait, I have a better idea. Instead of $100 million, how about I send you a hobo's dick cheese?
Did you just call The Pantry upscale?
None of those were on the scale of Tarpoff's or Dines. Neither were casual dinning and both required coat and tie.

Robert's. And it was very upscale. Easily on the level of Tarpoff's.
