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.

It was our first time at this location. Food and service were both excellent. Loved the Bang Bang Shrimp! Hayden, our server was attentive and our meals came exactly as ordered. We will definitely be back.

We weren’t impressed with the service on New Years Eve. Also, I let the hostess and our server know that the mushrooms I ordered tasted odd (I couldn’t eat them). No effort was made to fix it! I hope this experience was a “one off” as we’ve always had great service and food at this State and Main.

You need some tables with easier access for seniors. The step up to the booth was a real challenge. Service was good, food was average. For the price I expected better.

My boyfriend and I decided to try this new restaurant out after a full day of Christmas shopping for the family. The vibes and decor were awesome! Our server Hayden pointed out some of his favourites on the happy hour menu. After deciding on the soup dumplings, jalapeño Mac and cheese, as well as two burgers we realized we ordered way too much food haha. At least we have our lunch for tomorrow covered then! We will definitely be back, thanks to everyone for the experience

Would give zero stars if I could. All around awful service during dinner. When I had made a reservation i had included a request for a dessert to be brought out as it was my parents anniversary. State and Main called me to confirm my reservation and special request and were very considerate. Upon arrival, the hostess confirmed the request again. When dinner was being served, a steak was burnt when it was supposed to be medium doneness. When we requested a new one, we received no apology and overall awkward and cold service. A different staff member brought the new dish to the table and we still received no apology or any conversation at all for that matter. The special request we made was not met either. Our time here concluded with no final words from our server Josh as he immediately walked away after payment was made.

Girls Night! First time trying this restaurant and definitely exceeded expectations. Service was amazing, our waitress was attentive and engaging. The table was gradually cleared so that we had ample space at all times. The food came at a quick pace between appetizers and mains. The menu is a little pricey but overall I would recommend to family and friends in suggestion for a great bite to eat!

I wish I had known the lettuce wraps were do it yourself. they work better with head lettuce. Last time I went I ordered fish tacos and although the filled was good the tacos were burnt. The bang bang shrimp were the best part of the meal

Great food and servers - except we felt we were being rushed. Three servers asked my fellow diner to take her plate away before the others had finished their meal. We had 4 servers come and ask to take our plates and we felt there were hovering. We all agreed we felt we were being rushed even though there were lots of empty tables.

Had the same experience the last time I was dining.

I would have given 5 stars if our table was not right in front of the door. It was a little chilly every time someone came in. The second door was propped open. Defeats the purpose of that second door, to keep the cold air out and warm air in.

We had a great experience at State and Main Pickering. Our food was delish; we had the sirloin steak and the burger. Our server was very attentive, thoughtful and kind. Thanks State and Main! We will be back!

The food was….ok. I had season vegetable, asparagus. It was old, I could only eat the top half of the spears. The salad was so vinegary, I couldn’t eat it. Luckily, the accidentally gave me mashed potatoes so that’s what I ate with my steak. I asked for medium, which I got. But the outside is so charred, it’s bitter. The ambiance and service was very good. The first time we came here, the food was good so maybe it was a bad night?

We had to wait a while for our table despite having an open table reservation. Not a very good experience since the expectation is that we will be seated within a reasonable time since we have a reservation. Their excuse is that their iPad broke down and they had to use their laptop or something ?!?!?

I think we were “forgotten” when we were seated. Food was ok although the chicken seemed to taste weird. And this morning I am quite sick. Didn’t want to make an issue since things were hard for restaurants during covid.

Food was good. Was seated at a high-top table though and had reserved a standard table so was a little disappointed in the seating as I'm not a fan of the high-top.

Service and quality of food was great. Competing restaurants in the area has become less competitive due to the decrease in service and food quality that is NOT related to the labour shortage. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed my experience. It was quite busy but service has the greatest value followed by food.

Our server Cass was amazing. I only gave it 4 stars because the hostess was incredibly rude to my disabled father.
