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.

When we arrived we were told they don't take reservations between 5 & 9 pm. My husband insisted they find us seating. After much ado, they did but the girl at the front seemed way out of her league & had to track down a manager before we finally got seated. Service was great, food good but not good value. We had to rush eating because it took 30 minutes to get our food. No offer of discount for the delay either. Too bad really as it is a good location.

Went to try it out not quite realizing it was more of a sports bar. The food was very good as was the service, but the music was way too loud. Like background music whereas it was difficult to carry on a conversaton. Ok for later at night if going in as a llarge group or to watch sports as would be a bit rowdy then.

Our server was excellent. She noticed that there was a birthday card on the table and made a point of wishing me a happy birthday. She let us sit and chat for a loooong time without making us feel like we had to get out quickly. We will be back!!

We went to State & Main for Mother's Day Brunch. It was our first & last visit. They weren't that busy, I would say the seating was about half full. We waited over an hour and ten minutes for our food. During that time, no one came over to ask if we wanted drink refills or to let us know what was taking so long. We finally had to ask about the delay. Once we asked, our food came out and it was cold. The manager did come over and apologize and let us know that we would not have to pay for our food. But overall a very disappointing experience.

Service was excellent. The food presentation was good, but it was under seasoned. There were a variety of sauces that came with the meals that helped flavour the food, otherwise it was bland.

My husband and I try out different restaurants all the time. Ordered the calamari and spicy tuna tartare for apps and then the tacos for him and steak salad for me.

Beyond disappointed. Calamari was more crumbs of breading. More red peppers and crumbs then there was calamari. For the price of the tuna app there was probably no more than a half teaspoon of tuna on each crispy rice. Couldn’t even taste it.

Tacos tasted bland and no taste. My salad was just romaine lettuce with a surprisingly vinaigrette dressing (thought it would be creamy) and it was to me an expensive bowl of romaine with a big chunk of steak not even cut thin enough to enjoy with the salad.

Had dinner and a movie with my son and his girl friend. She likes vegetarian, she had the vegie burger. My son had the burrito bowl he is a big fellow and he was full. I had the thai soup bowl could hardly finish it. The waitress was very helpful with suggestions, She was had a very good understanding of the menue .
I do recommend State and Main, and do intend on returning.

We went for an early dinner New Years Eve. I had made reservations a few days ahead.Because I reserved online , I could'nt see anywhere to request a booth. There were plenty of seats in the restaurant but we all seemed to be crowded in a row at these tiny little tables.
Because of the seating I found it too cafeteria style.
We did enjoy the wvwning and was nice to be able to walk home after having wine.

Four of us went for dinner. One is celiac and she was given a separate menu. Food handling for her by server was amazing. Food took a little longer than we would have liked, but it was excellent. Pricing is comparable to Kelseys/Applebees etc. Would definitely go again

Everything was excellent from a food prep persepecitve. The atmosphere was great and the menu is amazing.
The service however, this time was horrible. The waitress only waited on two of the three of us at first. Brought tea for one person without a cup on the first trip next we had to ask for the tea bag.
The bills were all mixed up at the end and she was very unattentive to our needs. I was surprised.

It was an alright experience but we had problems with the young dark haired hostess oblivious to what our arrival time was and table preference. We will return because of the consistent server and food esperience. The managers are not afraid to visit your table when concerns happy and are quick to resolve.

This was my second time at State&Main and once again the service was very slow. This time unfortunately they ran out of taco shells and cookies for dessert. Not impressed.
Hard to say if I will return to give them another chance not sure its worth it.

This was the worst experience since the restaurant opened. We have been there 4 times. The bar service still is vey lacking. 15 min for a glass of wine and rye and coke. My dinner was a disaster. First off cold fries which drives me nuts. After getting fresh ones on to the the buffalo chicken sandwich. A mess. Couldn't find the chicken or the sauce. The house salad was good. Pretty bad when the best part of the meal was the wine and the spicy wrap for appetizers.
The other person had chicken wrap. No bacon hardly any chicken and an over abundance of lettuce.
After asking if we had everything waitress never came back to check in our meals. I know she was new at the job but!! The manager came over when we were done and corrected my bill but not the other one. Excuses only go so far.
We drive thru traffic jams on a Friday night to get there and support new ventures but I think we will be staying in the south end for a bit.
Bad service and food not the best combo. We work to hard for our money. We were very disappointed as the other times have been great. I had given them at least a 4 out of 5 each time. This time I would have to rate them only a 1.

New restaurant so I wanted to check it out. The food was delicious and the service superior (thank you Pam). It is loud so if you don't like noisy places, it may not be a good fit.
Overall, it is a great place to go with friends for a wonderful meal and fun atmosphere.
