Because at State & Main we live for connections. Connections between old friends and new acquaintances, and great food and good times.

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.

The service was excellent. One dish was really spicy. It would be helpful to have a range of heat that customers could choose from.

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.

Calamari plate was mostly jalapeño and red pepper. The few calamari that were there were very small rings that looked like they came out of a freezer bag. There was no taste to them. The shrimp rigatoni came with bacon bits that were definitely not fresh. The shrimp looked like they came out of a can. The rigatoni itself was well cooked but how wrong can you go with pasta? Very disappointed with a plate of pasta costing $24.50. The enchiladas my wife had were so spicy that she couldn’t taste anything other than the spices

My friend and I had never been to this location before and we will definitely be back! Our server was lovely and the food and drinks were made quickly and correctly! The only minor complaint was that I would have liked to be in a booth but I realize that it might have been a waste as there were only two of us. Thank you for a fun evening!

The drinks were good. The pace of service was ok except the waitress was in a rush to take our order and she needed to speak louder with a mask on. Fish and chips and Cobb salad were excellent, but the noodles in the Royal Bangkok bowl were under cooked.

Had a good experience for the first time eating in. The appearance was clean and inviting.
Our server was attentive and made sure all was to our satisfaction.
The 1/2 price wine was a nice surprise and will have to return again for that promotion.

Wonderful service with a smile you knew was there even if Brooke our waitress was wearing a mask. Very helpful on the menu. Only downside was that I felt the food portions were a little small for the price and the appetizers were great but also a little high priced.

My Wife had butter chicken and she was satisfied, I had a Cobb salad, it was fine . I added the optional chicken and it was very unsatisfactory. Six or seven pieces of chicken cubes, cold, grey in colour tasteless and they looked like they were just taken out of a can. Not what I expected.
