Our server was excellent - polite, kind and efficient. We had the chicken wings, steak salad, Cajun chicken and the chicken salad. All were delicious. Since it was a birthday celebration, our server treated us with a gigantic shareable bowl of brownies and ice cream-perfect! We will be back! Thank you State and Main!

Loved my Thai chicken salad but my friend found the Cobb salad so-so. Excellent and efficient covid monitoring practice. Great service. First time to State & Main and I will definitely be back.

We really loved the bang bang shrimp appetizer. The spicy Thai salad was a tad spicier than I expected but was very good. Can't wait to come back

Very nice place. Good atmosphere. 2 issues:
1) They asked us when I reserved on line what the “occasion” was. I told them it was our wedding anniversary but there was no acknowledgement of any kind by them while we were there. I found that a bit odd especially since they inquired.
2) The waitress, although very pleasant, made us feel rushed. She actually asked if we would like dessert, while we were still eating our dinner!!!
Otherwise it was a nice evening and the food was good.

Food was excellent. Service could have been better… our appetizers were bought out to us with no cutlery or plates. Had to specifically ask and then waited while food got cold.

Food and service was decent although their system is odd. We had 3 different servers and were expected to settle our bills with each server every time their shift ended. They charged us tax 3 times and expected 3 different tips which is something I’ve never experienced before at a restaurant and is quite ridiculous considering our bills ended up being more than it should have been because of this...

Our experience was marred by the message that we had only 90 min for our dinner. We had reserved a table for 6 pm so that should mean we had to leave by 7:30. We arrived 10 min early and they had an empty table. So, if we reserved a table until 7:30 why did they come to us at 7:10 and say we had 10 min left? We realize they are busy and want to maximize the number of patrons through service but does a reservation not matter?

The issue was the fruit flies. We killed about 6 of them and it was never ending. Not sure what happening in the kitchen but something needs to be addressed ASAP because that amount of fruit flies is not normal for a restaurant. Food and service were both good. However we couldn’t enjoy the meal and even skipped dessert due to the fruit flies.

There were a lot of fruit flies flying all over us and our meals. There were many times they were in our food. It was a bit frustrating to eat our meal as we had to ensure that the flies were being swapped away. However the service was great and they were accommodating and understood.

Service is spot on. The place is more of a finger food place, draught and craft beers are really good. Outdoor sitting on a fine weather day makes the experience worth the while.
