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.

I have eaten at State and Main a few times and have loved it each time. The pretzel app is fantastic and the tuna bowl is my go to!

Went with a group of friends for dinner before attending a show at Georgian Theatre. Staff were friendly and helpful with beverage and food selections. The menu offers a good variety of well priced items. I particularly like the corn bread side with my meal however tonight it wasn't up to it's usual standard. Seems like something was missing from the corn bread. The California chicken wrap is a favourite. My wife enjoyed the Tuna tartar. The beef dip is a good choice and is a generous serving. Overall we enjoyed our experience here and even though we were a little late in arriving, they got us out on time to get to the show.

Disappointed for sure. Wasn't horrible, but wasn't great either. Went there for my birthday dinner. Dining room was nice, and music was good, but really quiet. Price was fairly decent, 80$ for 2 adults and 1 child, 1 appetizer, 2 drinks and 1 drink with alcohol.

But the food was only mediocre. I don't like chain restaurants for that reason, but wanted something my fussy family could enjoy as well. I ordered the spicy tuna poke bowl. Tasted ok, but super hot and looked like a bowl of something destined for the compost bin. I know it said spicy but wow. Felt like I needed a glass of milk or yogurt on the side.
The calamari wasn't bad and my drink was delicious (had the state smash: raspberry vodka muddled with raspberries, mint leaves and mango).

On a positive note, my 11 year old loved the place!

Enjoyed the happy hour appetizers. The food was flavourful and plentiful. Will be back. The only thing that could improve was that a birthday special occasion was stated when the reservation was made but no mention of it by the sever nor staff.

The only thing we were disappointed with or should I say say surprised was the amount of food received with the $33 steak dish. It states 10 oz and did mot seem 10 oz.

Great Steak salad and you can’t beat 1/2 price bottled wine Thursday’s. Excellent service!

I thought it was just OK but overpriced. My daughter had the veggie burger and didn't like it very much, it was kind of pasty/mushy. My burrito bowl was tasty but way too much rice filling up most of the bowl. The portions were generous and good atmosphere, just thought it was overpriced for an average meal and probably won't return.

We had Michele as our waitress and she was wonderful! Very friendly and a fun atmosphere, I loved the selection of sports on your T.V's. Our food was great and it came out in a timely manner.
We live in the south end of Barrie off Mapleview Dr., but will consider the drive out to the east end to come back to State & Main.
Please send along to Michele that she was a great server and we would love to get her again on our next visit.
Well done 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 sat on the patio which was great but we were too close to the DJ. It was too loud for my husband.

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.
