State & Allen Kitchen+Bar is one of those Dallas neighborhood establishments that is as real and as effortlessly fun as the people who frequent it. A place for a quick cocktail, or impeccably prepared food accompanied by a selection from an impressive wine list. We are your living room away from home, where you can hang out on our patio and enjoy good drinks, catch a sports game on the big screen—and above all, have a great time with old friends while making new ones.

    State & Allen has a relaxing atmosphere. Their drink menu is typical of what you’ll find in Dallas, with nothing super fancy. The food was OK, again, nothing fancy. I had the bacon avocado burger, and my wife had the Love Love Bowl. Her bowl, which was supposed to have chicken on it, came out ugh no chicken. When mentioned to the waiter, he was very apologetic and made sure that she got her grilled chicken. The burger didn’t seem to have much flavor. As far as the service goes, while the waiter was very friendly and accommodating, was a little slow. He didn’t bring plates when our appetizer came out, and it seemed to take a while to get our drinks. Of note, they do have a pretty good beer menu and whiskey/bourbon selection. All-in-all, there is nothing special about this place that would make me want to come back.

    I would not recommend dining at State and Allen. My friends and I came for brunch which ends at 3 “stated on their website”. My party got there before 3 and it took the waiter nearly 5 minutes to come greet us and say brunch isn’t offered anymore because they “ran out of food”. I then preceded to see others receive their brunch orders “after 3”. She had an awful attitude from the beginning of our service. The manager wasn’t much of a help either. I sat and watched the servers and manager group up behind the bar and talk/make disgusting looks at our table. It seemed as if it was the talk of the day. Highly unprofessional and sad. Disappointed in this restaurant and they will not be receiving my service again nor any recommendations to others.

    1st time here for my sisters brunch and I was definitely impressed by the foo! I had the crab cakes and eggs and so delish !!!!!! However our service was HORRIBLE!!!! My friend ordered tea and additional mimosa glass but never came, I ordered a side of bacon but never received, our waiter would NEVER come check on us either and when we FINALLY were able to place our food order he came back 20 mins later asking for our order again because the kitchen had lost our ticket!!!! Are you serious??!!! Overall because I did enjoy the food I would try again and hope service will be a better

    Not a bad price for a brunch. Very much has a locals vibe to it. Food can be a bit pricey for value but there are few gems like the biscuits and gravy.

    This little gem is located in the heart of the State-Thomas neighborhood near UpTown. Food is excellent or above the usual sports bar fare. Servers are very friendly, patient and attentive. No better place to watch sports on several large screens. The place is very popular and always packed , but you can always find a table. Heartily recommended.

    Service was extremely slow, taking 20+ minutes to get a coffee and over an hour for 4 brunch plates. After being seated for an hour and 15 minutes and only having food for about 10 minutes, the host came over and told us that our table was needed for another reservation In 15 minutes. Server was super nice, just stretched very thin. Unusual experience for S&A, will still go back again.

    Scheduled for Raster brunch for family with 10 people. Had not been before and assumed inside would be a bit quieter than what I could see from the street. It wasn’t - and the table was had a nice view of the kitchen and bathrooms which didn’t help matters much. Food was good and service was competent. Would go there again, but only for a sports bar type of outing. I understand evening can be a bit more subdued but not sure I believe it given the neighborhood and setting.

    Great food but awkward service. They surprisingly ran out of coffee early in the day (our reservation was at 10:45 AM on a Sunday). Again, food was amazing and there were no complaints but every time our waitress came to our table, all the interactions were just really really awkward! This hasn’t been the case for all our visits to this restaurant though - just this one. Had to request water refills multiple times.

    Super expensive for sub par food. Fries were soggy and not even hot. Burger was the quality of a $8 burger and was double the price. Honestly has dropped in quality since the last time I went. Won’t be coming back.

    Food was not bad, but service was poor. We waited a long time for someone to take our drink order and my whiskey sour was basically just lemonade. My boyfriend's food came out first and after about 10 minutes we finally asked a different server if he could check on mine. He came back and apologized and brought my food but at that point the fries were soggy and my boyfriend was already finished eating. We had to ask for more water a couple times and felt like we were forgotten about (we were sitting on the edge of the patio). The patio is fun and the food is decent, but I thought our bill was expensive for what we got and the service was not good. We probably wont be coming back.
