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.

Service was slow. My friend asked for a coffee refill 3 times before getting one. Another friend asked half way through for extra order of chicken wings which she got when our meal was finished. Food expensive considering what we ordered. Lighting dull and could not read. Music very loud we were yelling over it. I had booked a reservation under my name when I arrived I was not registered and questioned how I had reserved table. Asked for another order of sweet potato fries as first was very skimpy and was asked why was I hungry? I found waitress rude. Will not be returning.

We sat in the corner and the lighting wasn’t the greatest and we asked for candles and our server Stephanie got right on it. The food was tasty, came out quickly and was extremely affordable.

First time dining for a couple of yurt group. We liked the food selection and tried some different items and were suitably impressed. Our Server was friendly and knowledgeable. We will return.

I specifically asked to be seated in the restaurant part at a stationary table and was actually seated at a high top in the bar area. This was a business meeting and found it quite loud. I’m a fan of the restaurant so will be back but thought I should mention. Not sure if I would do another business lunch.

The food is great!! my boyfriend has taken me here once before and i loved it so much we came back to celebrate my graduation, everything was amazing except our server was extremely snobby, she had an attitude, didn’t check up on us at all, and when we needed things we would have to wait for her to walk past and then interact with her ourselves, one of my guests even felt they were judged by her because of a mistake he had made. We can’t blame the restaurant because other than this everything was amazing and it might’ve just been a bad night for our waitress; who knows but this did lead to nobody leaving a tip whereas if she was just nice at the bare minimum she would’ve earned a great tip from a somewhat large table.

Sandy my entire meal was under cooked. For a $40 dinner, I would have expected the steak shrimp and crab cake to be cooked to perfection.

We were happy with all of the meals except for one (6oz steak was overdone). Also, the food was brought out hot and fresh, but by staff other than our server; that is totally fine but then it took a while for our actual server to come and check on us once we had our food. The steak would have been sent back if not for that wait. We also ran out of drinks and were not offered another and/or a glass of water. Overall 7.5 out of 10 but we would definitely go back.

The high table we sat at in the corner by the patio needs more lighting. Had to use the flashlight on our phones to read the menu. Waitress did bring over some candles though which helped a little.

A group from the office went to S&M for lunch, the food was great but the service and attention to the table was passable at best. We waited for around 30 minutes before our order was taken. Then one person soup was sent out to the table cold. When it came time to pay it was a little confusing with bills not balancing out. On a one hour work lunch we were at the restaurant for about an hour and a half total to have our lunch.

The staff are so pleasant but I had crab cakes and I’m sure there was no real crab! It was on coleslaw with very little flavour. My guest’s meal was a burger served on two slices of bread and not very appealing
Sorry but this menu needs an overhaul with a focus on fresh taste.

Our food was OK - fish was cold in the taco and the side rice was also served cold - Who ever heard of cold rice. A appetizer was ordered however we received it with the whole meal.
We waited a long time for food and we did get another dish for the taco however the other 3 people were done with their meals by the time we got the last dish.

We met as a party of 7 and got stuck in traffic on the hwy as we were coming from out of town. I called and the girl thanked us and said no worries. Our table was ready for us, all of the people including our waitress Stephanie were great. The only thing I didn't give it 5 stars for was that beer was on the warm side. I love my beer and it was just room temp. Otherwise, it was efficient, really fun and the food was awesome. I had the house red ale. Really good but again just a bit warm. The other drinks especially my daughter's gin and tonic cocktail was outstanding. Really enjoyed the entire visit and would return again. Thanks for a memorable evening out with family.

It was okay but the drinks are expensive. $10 plus tax for a 22oz IPA and $8 for a 16 oz Stella Artois !
Over $30 for 3 drinks.

We have been here before and ordered the shrimp appy, so we ordered it this time. It was over cooked, very crispy :(
I ordered the fish and chips and it was a little too greasy.
This won't stop us from coming back. Everyone has an off day :)

Server wasn’t that attentive .
Food wasn’t prepared to customer specs so some items had to be redone so some could eat & others got theirs too late to be enjoyed .
Busser placed food on table without clarifying whose order it was.
Managers need to manage your staff better or replace them with competent staff.

This was a very disappointing brunch and it was on Mother's Day. We chose State & Main for this occasion because we had been there before a couple of times and it was good. Not sure as to what was going on this time but the service was slow, they ran out of orange juice by 11:30am and my meal sat under the heat light for a long time because my eggs were all dried up. I am not normally one to complain unless things are really bad, because I get it "stuff happens" but when I brought it politely to the supervisor's attention all she said was "ya it is Mother's Day so we are really busy". Not the right answer!!! Should never be the customer's fault for the businesses issues. That is customer service 101.

reservation for 3 people. 3 meals ordered
lettuce wraps, very good, like heat, but possibly a bit too spicy
pacific noodle bowl, nice flavour, could ad as much heat as you wanted. large portion
original eggs benidict, disapointing. fruit skewer was laughable, wouldve been better to just have an orange slice on the plate. eggs benedict were fine, served with tator tots. the entire appearance was very skimpy & not filling for the price. would not order again.
the server was very good, and extremely well mannered & willing to please. unfortunately he appeared to be runoff his feet, (i believe he was also the barteneder), while other servers were hard to find & moved quite slowly

My steak salad with blue cheese was delicious. But my french onion soup was overpriced. Also, the cheese sauce for the pretzel bites was too thin and had too much beer flavour. Fonally, the tables and seats were too high. You need lower tables eith regular sized chairs.

First time visiting State & Main and the food was surprisingly disappointing. The jalepano mac n cheese was dripping grease, the butter chicken had only a little chicken in it (mostly rice & sauce), the lamb in the lamb tacos was minimal and had very little flavour, and the ceasar salad was tiny, the equivilant of one leaf of romaine (not joking). The best part of the meal was the spicy sauce that came with the tacos. That was perfect. The atmosphere was nice, but food was so disappointing. We had higher hopes for the quality and flavour from a higher end restaurant like this.

My only complaint is we went for a long time with empty drinks, and a long time with a dessert menu that we both felt full by the time the waitress came back.

She was very pleasant and we were otherwise pleased with our service but I feel like we have been elsewhere and most waitresses will check drinks on their way by, so you’re not left sitting without especially at 3$ a pop. Also, had to take ketchup from another table when they left because no one asked if we wanted any when our food came out.

We had a 7:15 reservation and we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. We also requested high top seating and this request wasn’t honoured. If I book a reservation I expect to be seated on time. Food was good, and our server was okay.
