Terrible service for our supper unfortunately. Over an hour for appetizer and had to skip mains to get to the game on time. Disappointed we choose State and Main.

They cut back to (1) side and that side portion was small. Should be (2) sides if they are that size. Food was good however

We were there around 5pm on a Saturday, so it was very quiet and not at all crowded, which was exactly what we were looking for. Food was great, and service was great.

The food was very good, but it took over 30 minuets to get our food served. I could understand it is was something difficult but 2 of the dishes were salads and one was a beef dip.

It was really loud and hard to hear my friends. Not handicap friendly, it would have been nice had there been more standard height tables. We were at a high top table and with the floor being a bit slippery my chair slid out from under me and I fell onto the floor. I hurt my back, neck and arm. I was only offered ice, which at the time I felt I did not need. They also offered to let us move to another high top table, but that wouldn’t have solved anything and it was at the end of our evening so moving didn’t seem practical. I ended up leaving the restaurant with a headache and nausea.

Around 4:30PM we made a reservation for the downtown location for 7:45PM that evening and received a confirmed reservation number. Upon arrival the place was in darkness and the doors were locked. Due to some police activity in the area (starting around 3:30PM) the road was cordoned off but sidewalks were not. We spoke to the police and they were suprised that the restaurant was closed with no sign on door to indicate why. Having gone downtown with another couple for our dinner reservation we were then left scrambling to find another place for dinner.
I would have expected that if they were going to be closed for whatever reason that they would have called or texted me know so we could have made other arrangements long before we arrived.
VERY UNPROFFESSIONAL!

We had excellent service from our waitress who went above and beyond to try and make our experience wonderful, however due to an event which the restaurant was unaware of and not prepared for, we had to cancel our order as the kitchen and bar were extremely backed up, and there was no chance to receive our order or enjoy which was unfortunate...

Great service and food was very tasty with a very good quantity.

Server was on top of her game and was pleasant informative and attentive without being too in our face.

Recommend a lunch there anytime

Amazing place for our date night. In 1 hour we had our first drink, appy (delivered and ate) and had our main brought to our table. Our server was wonderful and friendly, my husband asked if she could put Nascar on one of the TVS and she did! Will be back again

Great staff!! We had a table for 10 with people arriving at different times, plus separate bills and people wanting to pay for other people’s’ drinks etc. It could’ve been chaos but our server was awesome! Thank you!!

While the service was good and the staff were lovely, unfortunately the food did not live up to similar standards. My chicken burger's bun was soggy as was my sister-in-law's chicken wrap. The fries and gravy were good and the best part of our meals. For dessert we ordered the brownie in a jar topped with ice cream and whip cream and unfortunately it was very disappointing. The brownie was so hard we could barely get through it with a spoon. Also, the music was terrible and too loud to have an enjoyable conversation. Overall a disappointing experience especially since it was to celebrate my sister-in-law and 10 year old niece's birthdays (of which I had mentioned when making the reservation but that was not acknowledged at all).

I've had better burgers at A&W, price point was too high for what little food came.
