At State & Main we believe in intersections. We celebrate the crossing of paths. We herald the spot where one road meets another. We toast the mash ups that create new things. Because at State & Main we live for connections. Connections between old friends and new acquaintances, and great food and good times. Since we opened our doors in 2012, there’s been craft beers and cocktails at the bar, reimagined scratch-made favourites on the menu and great tunes filling our easygoing atmosphere. And all for the purpose of bringing the best things in life together in one perfect place. This is that place. With over 20 locations across Canada and the US, State & Main offers the fresh made, hand-crafted food our guests expect coupled with an inviting beer and spirits line-up to quench any and every thirst. So we say, when you find yourself at a crossroads, sit back, order a drink, ponder the menu and make a connection at State & Main.

Overall great experience. The French onion soup needs work. It is so stuffed full of bread there was almost no broth. They quickly replaced it with another but had the same problem. Too much bread. Still, soup aside, it was a good dining experience. Recommend!

We dine at State & Main approximately 6 times a year. The food is always delicious. The service was very good. Very attentive. We had a great evening and we love that we can make reservations on Open Table. Can’t wait for our next visit.

My food came to the table code.
The waitress quickly returned it to the kichen and a new meal was brought after short delay. The Manager came to apoligize. Once again I find the service here to be EXCELLENT.....
Food good too....Thank You

Nice food options here, as my family enjoyed the calamari and bang bang shrimp, and I enjoyed my sirloin steak. Be sure to make reservations for dinner as they have a smaller dining area than you'd expect (because of the larger bar area).

The service was exceptional. Food very tasty but the French Onion soup had waaaay too much bread in it. The bread totally absorbed the soup. The bruschetta was individual slices of bread with melted cheese but the tomatoes/etc for the topping were in a separate dish and we had to scoop it on the bread rounds. Needless to say it fell off all over the table and floor. I have never seen it served this way. On the plus side, it too was very tasty.

Had I known there were so many loud and distracting TVs in the restaurant, I would have chosen another restaurant. I was told afterwards that there are areas in the restaurant that are TV-free. Perhaps this should be an option when booking. Otherwise, the meal with family was good.

The food was very good but our server was very busy and I think she forgot about us, we waited half an hour for our app and then another hour for our dinner with only a quick apology at the end, my wife and I want to give the place another try and hopefully they are better staffed

First time we’ve been to State & Main for brunch—today we celebrated Mother’s Day. Delicious meals—the burrito, Eggs Benedict, and the Morning Glory. Our server was excellent—friendly, funny, and courteous. We will definitely be back for brunch again!

Dill dip for the french fries was excellent. Food is on the good end of average—nothing mind-blowing, but completely fine, and with a couple of tasty stand-outs (it's a small thing, but the steak-cut fries were beautifully tender—thick fries are too often undercooked!). Service was very friendly and attentive. Three major advantages of this place:
1) Size. It's quite spacious, and I imagine pretty able to accommodate large groups or last-minute bookings.
2) Menu variety. They have an extremely diverse menu. If you're looking for somewhere to go with people you don't know well, or who have divergent tastes, I'd be surprised if they couldn't find something that looked appealing.
3) Ambience. The interior is casual (acoustics aren't great—it wasn't very full, but it was pretty loud!) but nicely decorated. Massive TV screens all around the dining area make things very laid-back—keep in mind if that's not the vibe you're going for (not really a "focus on each other" date-night site).

Good place for one of those "we've been on the road for ages, it's late, we don't want to cook, but we want something better than a pizza" nights. We'll almost certainly eat here again, but probably wouldn't go out of our way to do it.

Server made our experience better. Ashley was really great. Food was decent but bison burger wasn’t much of a special burger. Next to me I would specify a bigger table too. We were seated at a very small 2 person table but there were several larger options around us.

Did not even make it to dinner for valentines. Upon arriving, we were told that there was an error in booking a reservation. And that we could not be seated anywhere other than the bar area at the end of an elongated table. We also had our four-year-old with us and she is too little to sit on a barstool. So we decided to leave. However, upon looking around the restaurant was 3/4 empty
