State & Main Kitchen + Bar - North Barrie
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.
Disappointed for sure. Wasn't horrible, but wasn't great either. Went there for my birthday dinner. Dining room was nice, and music was good, but really quiet. Price was fairly decent, 80$ for 2 adults and 1 child, 1 appetizer, 2 drinks and 1 drink with alcohol.
But the food was only mediocre. I don't like chain restaurants for that reason, but wanted something my fussy family could enjoy as well. I ordered the spicy tuna poke bowl. Tasted ok, but super hot and looked like a bowl of something destined for the compost bin. I know it said spicy but wow. Felt like I needed a glass of milk or yogurt on the side.
The calamari wasn't bad and my drink was delicious (had the state smash: raspberry vodka muddled with raspberries, mint leaves and mango).
On a positive note, my 11 year old loved the place!
It’s was awesome! We all had a bowl and they were very tasty
Enjoyed the happy hour appetizers. The food was flavourful and plentiful. Will be back. The only thing that could improve was that a birthday special occasion was stated when the reservation was made but no mention of it by the sever nor staff.
The only thing we were disappointed with or should I say say surprised was the amount of food received with the $33 steak dish. It states 10 oz and did mot seem 10 oz.
Great Steak salad and you can’t beat 1/2 price bottled wine Thursday’s. Excellent service!
Great restaurant. Thursday is 1/2 price bottle of wine. Can’t go wrong. Service was great as was the food. Highly recommended.
Food was great, staff were excellent and the pricing is fair. What else can you ask for?
I thought it was just OK but overpriced. My daughter had the veggie burger and didn't like it very much, it was kind of pasty/mushy. My burrito bowl was tasty but way too much rice filling up most of the bowl. The portions were generous and good atmosphere, just thought it was overpriced for an average meal and probably won't return.
Great night but really hard to hear friends talk. Very loud.
We had Michele as our waitress and she was wonderful! Very friendly and a fun atmosphere, I loved the selection of sports on your T.V's. Our food was great and it came out in a timely manner.
We live in the south end of Barrie off Mapleview Dr., but will consider the drive out to the east end to come back to State & Main.
Please send along to Michele that she was a great server and we would love to get her again on our next visit.
Well done State & Main!
Had to send back my steak..and disruptive with my wife's dinner..but manager rectified it..
Pleasant. Quick and friendly service
We brought 2 newbies with us this time and they loved the food and our service was amazing, thanks Netherlands 😊
Great food and great service.
My boyfriend and I go here all the time, it’s easily one of our favourite places to eat. The service is always spectacular and the food is delicious. Great value.
Great service. Didn’t love the grilled cheese burger .. cheese wasn’t even melted . I would possibly try it again but lots of other places I would
Pick first .
Worth a try
When we arrived we were told they don't take reservations between 5 & 9 pm. My husband insisted they find us seating. After much ado, they did but the girl at the front seemed way out of her league & had to track down a manager before we finally got seated. Service was great, food good but not good value. We had to rush eating because it took 30 minutes to get our food. No offer of discount for the delay either. Too bad really as it is a good location.
Went to try it out not quite realizing it was more of a sports bar. The food was very good as was the service, but the music was way too loud. Like background music whereas it was difficult to carry on a conversaton. Ok for later at night if going in as a llarge group or to watch sports as would be a bit rowdy then.
Food was great. Staff was friendly. Highly recommend for casual dining or meeting with friends.
Our server was excellent. She noticed that there was a birthday card on the table and made a point of wishing me a happy birthday. She let us sit and chat for a loooong time without making us feel like we had to get out quickly. We will be back!!
Caroline made our day! What a wonderful person. She was welcoming and made sure our meal was perfect. Thank you
Food was excellent, great service! Will definitely come back.
Our server was super amazing and the food was so unique and delicious!
We sat on the patio which was great but we were too close to the DJ. It was too loud for my husband.
Six of us to dinner before movies. Food was good but the service was a little lacklustre. Will give it another try.
Enjoyed the meal. Strangely enough the Brussel sprouts appetizers were amazing. I would come back just for those.
Our wait staff (Tori) was welcoming and friendly -thanks for a great night!
We went to State & Main for Mother's Day Brunch. It was our first & last visit. They weren't that busy, I would say the seating was about half full. We waited over an hour and ten minutes for our food. During that time, no one came over to ask if we wanted drink refills or to let us know what was taking so long. We finally had to ask about the delay. Once we asked, our food came out and it was cold. The manager did come over and apologize and let us know that we would not have to pay for our food. But overall a very disappointing experience.
Service was excellent. The food presentation was good, but it was under seasoned. There were a variety of sauces that came with the meals that helped flavour the food, otherwise it was bland.
We were there for sunday brunch, lots of selection BUT tater-tots??? no! real potatoes ie home fries with eggs. Portions too large. Options for full or half portions.
Great food, great patio. Service was a bit slow but it was very busy so it was totally understandable.
It was my friends first time @ State & Main- she enjoyed herself and said she can’t wait until we come back!!
Great food, fun atmosphere, exceptional service. This was our 5th visit and each time we had amazing service and great food. Highly recommend!
We visit this new restaurant to Barrie at least once a week. The staff are fantastic and the food is always excellent.
Great experience! Service and attention was quick and friendly. Food was very good!
A great experience. Food was amazing and gluten free options were nice
My husband and I try out different restaurants all the time. Ordered the calamari and spicy tuna tartare for apps and then the tacos for him and steak salad for me.
Beyond disappointed. Calamari was more crumbs of breading. More red peppers and crumbs then there was calamari. For the price of the tuna app there was probably no more than a half teaspoon of tuna on each crispy rice. Couldn’t even taste it.
Tacos tasted bland and no taste. My salad was just romaine lettuce with a surprisingly vinaigrette dressing (thought it would be creamy) and it was to me an expensive bowl of romaine with a big chunk of steak not even cut thin enough to enjoy with the salad.
Had dinner and a movie with my son and his girl friend. She likes vegetarian, she had the vegie burger. My son had the burrito bowl he is a big fellow and he was full. I had the thai soup bowl could hardly finish it. The waitress was very helpful with suggestions, She was had a very good understanding of the menue .
I do recommend State and Main, and do intend on returning.
We went for an early dinner New Years Eve. I had made reservations a few days ahead.Because I reserved online , I could'nt see anywhere to request a booth. There were plenty of seats in the restaurant but we all seemed to be crowded in a row at these tiny little tables.
Because of the seating I found it too cafeteria style.
We did enjoy the wvwning and was nice to be able to walk home after having wine.
Four of us went for dinner. One is celiac and she was given a separate menu. Food handling for her by server was amazing. Food took a little longer than we would have liked, but it was excellent. Pricing is comparable to Kelseys/Applebees etc. Would definitely go again
