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 salad I ate was one of the best salads I’ve ever eaten!! Our server enquired if I was ok with spice and it was smart of her to do that as it was indeed spicy and I loved it. Very friendly staff, our server especially but also the persons that offered to close the blinds for us and also the person that delivered our food! Very pleased!
Made a reservation through opentable, we were seated at the back of the restaurant by the washrooms with many tables up front open. The pretzel bites were very salty as well as the fries. The fish was good.
It was wonderful. Hostess was great. Waitress was amazing. Food was fantastic.
I love this location of State and Main. They always offer great service and the Staff is very friendly plus they are enforcing a strict Face Mask Policy when you are inside the restaurant so Kudos for that. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Nice stop on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Felt confident that all “covid” issues were handled well
I enjoyed the atmosphere and the warm summer evening on the patio. The staff are always prompt and courteous.
We went as a special request for our son’s birthday because he absolutely LOVES the chicken tenders, fries, and dessert brownie. We used to always go to the Sherwood Park location and had wonderful food and service there. This meal was disappointing. The service was very slow. It took almost 2 hours from being seated (promptly at our reservation time) to leave the restaurant. All of the food was very good, with the exception of the fries. Perhaps we all received a bad batch. We ordered an appetizer, 4 meals, beverages, and 3 desserts. My son’s dessert was on the bill. This added insult to injury after the slow and poor service: The host checking is us in for our reservation did not wish our son a happy birthday; neither did the waitress or the manager who visited the table to refill our empty glasses. Three times when interacting with the staff, we mentioned our son’s birthday. Really disappointing. Upon receiving the bill, I asked if my son would receive a dessert for his birthday. The waitress indicated that he should, but she did not want to go ask her manager. She ended up removing it from the bill, but we all left feeling very unappreciated as customers.
Was disappointed in one of the servers, she was the one who seated us. She first put us in front of an open door to outside (the restaurant is nearly empty). We asked if we could go somewhere outside, she put us directly next to a table with a large group of rowdy people. Again, 6 other empty tables outside. We asked if we could just move one table over and she gave my boyfriend and I a look of irritation and begrudgingly allowed us to do so. It really tainted the entire experience for us. Otherwise the food and value was good.
every thing was fine, just a little expensive but it is the times..
this is the first restaurant I have been to since we were allowed to eat at restaurants again.
The distancing was great at State & Main, however I noticed at least 3 adults and one 11 year old male from the restaurant area and 1 adult from the bar leave their table to go to the washroom without their masks on. Servers walked right past them and didn't say anything.
This was my fear when I agreed to meet a good friend for dinner. If masks are mandatory when you leave your table, as I was told by my server, then why are they not enforcing it.
Sorry but I won't be returning if State & Main are going to relaxed about mask requirements. I have a compromised immune system, so this was very uncomfortable for me. I will also be letting others know of the relaxed mask wearing at this location.
Social distancing was in place and our waitress did a very good job making us feel safe. The food was a bit slow at lunch but not an issue to complain about.
I was sat for 15mins before a waitress even walked by. Than when I asked for the veggie menu I got attitude from the waitress and waited another 15 mins before anyone else came by. We left and went to a different restaurant.
If you get the chance to sit in Hailey's section - it is a must. She was awesome. She was attentive and intuitive. She spoke up when speaking with our elderly guests and had a great exchange with our teenager.
The food was what I would expect from State & Main. I did go away from my usual and order the chicken enchilada. The flavour was really good the right amount of heat, which is to say I would compare it if you ordered medium chicken wings. My only issue what the amount of lettuce - there was LOTS. Also some of it had seen better days. I did steal a fry from a family member - they were awesome. I would recommend the Dill Dip, if you like dill - if you don't then stick with Ketch-up
the one cautionary note is the tables are either high tops VERY high tops or tight booths. So if you are dining with people who have a little meat on their middle or have knee and hip issues - I would suggest you either bring a step stool or go somewhere else. One of our guests struggled to climb the stool to get into the seat. It was very embarrassing for them and made the first part of our meal uncomfortable.
Very good waitress. Good food.
The Service is always great at State and Main Southgate. I have been visiting this location for almost 7 years now and I have never been disappointed. This was the first time I saw that the restroom was dirty and not clean at all. Considering the Pandemic we are facing I would strongly recommend a thorough and deep cleaning of the restrooms every hour on the hour.
State and Main makes really good pub food. We typically go for the Wednesday wings but the big item this time was the fries. We both enjoy good fries with gravy and we had our fill.
Well organized for the new requirements. Food was good, only negative was my daughter missing the cauliflower bites that used to be on the menu but aren't anymore.
The food was delicious. Did not have to wait a long time and service was excellent.
It’s was a good place to have a date night, very romantic
The bang bang shrimp were delicious!
Just ok for the price. kinda like a bar atmosphere even in the dining area. 5 tv's just in the dining area. The food was good but just ok overall considering the rest.
great food, great service. Really enjoyed my meal
Great food and service. Always fun when Jen is your server
Severely lacking vegan options. Even the veggie burgers has cheese in it (that needs to be stated on the menu- it’s misleading). There’s only one vegan option, and it is not really what someone wants when they go out for bar food. Please consider more options.
This was our first experience at State & Main but it certainly won't be our last. We were joined for dinner by a couple of friends and truly enjoyed our evening. We started with beverages and moved on to an appetizer that each couple shared. Both choices were well received and enjoyed. Our mains came out with good timing and those were enjoyed as well. Food was plentiful and tasty. We ended our dinner with shared desserts that by all accounts were delicious. Our waitress was attentive and knowlegable about the menu. She never intruded when we were visiting but made sure we were happy with our choices. Overall a lovely evening out. We will be back.
First time to S&M.
Overall, excellent diner out! Super lady serving us, very smart.
I was disappointed with the French Onion soup. It had obviously spent quite some time in the microwave as was far too hot to even take a small spoonful. By the time it was possible to eat it, the large amount of croutons were soggy. Not very good.
Really nice service
Excellent service, and great food, more than enough to satisfy our appetites. The lightweight blinds do not block out the bright sunshine, making it difficult to see when the sun is shining in your eyes. The staff tried their best to accomodate everyone, but the restaurant really needs to address this issue and maybe put in heavier duty blinds. Otherwise a nice experience.
We found the food quite overpriced and not worthy of the price. The Korean Fried Chicken ($14) was mostly mushy cauliflower, couldn't identify one piece of chicken. It didn't seem to have a Korean spice, tasted like plain hot sauce to us. The Bruschetta ($10.75) was OK as were the Pretzel Bites ($12.75) that had a great beer cheese dip. One friend had a steak sandwich ($22) and enjoyed it. If we return to this or another location, it would be at happy hour, where the food might be more affordable.
A good experience. Our server, Alicia, was efficient, friendly and very helpful.
However, my husband's wrap was soggy, messy and drippy. He could hardly eat it.
My chicken burger sandwich was excellent.
Our salads and fries were wonderful!
My husband says he will not go back. ☹️
great food and service.
Takes forever to get your food.
I took my husband to State and Main Southgate for his birthday. The ambience was great for the occasion, the restaurant clean and nice, the service timely and the food scrumptious! We will definitely be back 🙂
Foods was good, but the White Sangria tasted like fruit flavored drink, I was disappointed....
Great as usual ! Great service and food. My favourite place
I've been to this location about 4 times in the past year and the service is not great. This time was still disappointing. Had to wait at the door for a few minutes before anyone came to seat us. Also had to wait longer than normal just go get water. I do like State and Main in general for the food choices and specials, but I will go another location next time.
Their strip Oscar was not striploin. It was sirloin or less. False advertising. For $38 bucks I did not expect Ruth Chris but I will never be back. Chewy bubble gum which I left. They did not charge me but I paid full amount as a tip as the service was fine.
It was a $22 plate....
Great service. A lovely young lady looked after us, and took such good care of us. Sadly, I don’t remember her name. Good was great and just what we were looking for.
Great servers, good food and nice atmosphere. We'll be back!
Great service and quality. Out table was ready, service was swift, service was friendly and the food was great. Menu was varied and well priced.
