We really enjoyed our meal at State Fare. The food was awesome, especially the poutine and brussels sprouts. Our server was helpful and attentive even though we sat outside where it was chilly and she only had on a short-sleeved shirt! We hope they decide to keep the tent and bring in the heaters for the winter so we can go back and try some of the cocktails and dessert!
After having requested an outdoor table, our guests were seated inside. When we were all there and seated (safely) outside, we waited 10 minutes. At that point I went back inside to ask if we would be served outside. At that point it was discovered that no one had told our waiter that we were outside. When we were seated, there was music blaring from the speakers AND the TVs on the other side loudly broadcasting the pre-game show. As the temperature dropped, there were no heaters. People all over the world eat outside for most of the year—because they have heaters and other accommodations. As our covid number are rising again many of us will NOT eat inside near unmasked guests. Therefore, without heaters it prompt service, it seems that State Fare does not want those guests who are being cautious about exposing themselves to covid.
I recently ate at State Fare with several girlfriends on a Sunday morning for brunch. We opted to sit outside but they did not have fuel for their heaters so it was a bit chillier than we expected. Fortunately, it was a nice day and we were still comfortable with a table in the sun. The food and service was excellent and we were not rushed at all. I will definitely return.
Take the chickpeas out of the braised kale. Brussel sprouts were overcooked and had no flavor
Requested a table top and was seated in the middle of the dining area floor
Service was great!! Wyatt was awesome
The service was excellent. I enjoyed the music and the food.
Service was outstanding. Sat outside on a beautiful day. Crab cake was over priced for the quality. Mushy, too much filler. Could hardly find even the smallest piece of crab meat. Person with me had the cheesesteak sub. Not good at all. Won't drive from Silver Spring, Maryland again to eat at State Fare. Not worth the price or drive.
Birthday/ engagement Dinner celebration! Waitress was very sweet and showed wonderful customer service! Efficient and very quick on getting anything we needed
Very enjoyable experience! The food was excellent!
Music was a bit loud. I found that people were having to shout over it to be heard at the bar. This made it especially noisy out in the restaurant seating area.
Great food & a good time.
It was amazing!
We always enjoy our visits to State Fare! The corn chowder was AMAZING. Great location, great food and great service. Thank you also......for accommodating our request to sit inside. We will be back!
Our waitress was very hospitable and timely!
We were celebrating Grandma's birthday. She has a walker. We could not find a handicap entrance so she had to go up the 2 stairs to the entrance. We ate inside. Food was very good. Malik was our server. He was very busy I am sure due to low staff. He was covering tables inside and outside. We had to track him down a few times, but he did a pretty good job. The noise was definitely a little loud, especially as the night went on. When we left it was open mic night outside. Comedians from what we heard. Some pretty foul language being used, so it was definitely time for us to go. I would eat here again, but with a different group of people.
Service was great. Food was good. We were distressed to hear from server that were new menu items that staff had not had opportunities to taste as management makes them pay for everything.
The place is lovely!!! Everything was perfect. The only thing I could say is that I wish they had more food options, but other than that it was nice!
The food was great. If you are interested in live music, then definitely sit outside
State Fare never disappoints. The food and service were outstanding.
Plenty of outdoor seating. Lunch was great………nice service and very fresh and plentiful salad with grilled chicken. I would definitely return!
This was a family get together we were celebrating my daughter publishing an article for her PHD in chemistry
Dirty dishes, slow service, rude hosts.
The outdoor seating is great. Staff were polite and gave good service. The food was a bit bland, but well presented and good overall.
I enjoyed the food at State Fare. Our waiter I believe named Steve was attentive and checked back to see if we needed anything.
We did not have to wait to be seated, my only complaint was that I felt we could have been separated a little more since we were indoors and it was not crowded at that time of the morning.
Otherwise, we had a great experience.
We sat outside on the patio and while the music was nice, the noise volume was more bar level than restauraunt level. We sat as far away as possible and still could not hear our conversations at our table, despite yelling. This really defeated the point of our going out to dinner with friends, trying to catch up.
Tried the twisted turkey sandwich ~ delicious! Thank you, also, to our very friendly and patient waitress. We had a very pleasant lunch!
Overall good experience. Tables under tent a little too close together for comfort in COVID times.
There were 5 of us in my party and we ate on the patio. Three of my group had never eaten at State Fare before. We all really enjoyed our meal and our waiter was personable and efficient. There was a wonderful variety to choose from the menu and one person in my group was a vegetarian and was thrilled with several great choices.
It has a wonderful ambience if you sit outside on a nice cool evening. The food came fast and was delicious and the price was very fair! Friendly staff. I can see why this place is always busy.
The service was excellent; the noise level reflected a large group having a party; my hamburger was overcooked but edible
Not particularly pleased. The food was OK. Service not.
Good food, good service, plenty of outdoor seating
Was good service.. only had a issue is when the food server brought the food the way she acknowledge the food on the plate as if it was nasty.
Good- at little longer wait for food then expected
This was a lovely breakfast outside on State Fare's patio. The food was delicious and the service was good. The prices were as expected, a bit pricey as most things are these days. My only complaint is that the diet coke was so flat, I couldn't drink it. I would understand if it was just a one-time thing, but I've eaten at State Fare 4 times, months apart, and the diet coke is always flat. I complained about it the first two times, and even spoke to the bartender about it. But I guess they're not that interested in the happiness of the diet coke drinkers. As that's one of the only things I can drink, it's pretty disappointing to me when it's not good. But otherwise, everything was great.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Love the temporary eating under the tents in the parking lot. Service has allot to be desired. Poor is more like the word.
The service last time I went was excellent! This time was terrible. I don’t know what the difference was but i was taking friends that had never been, and luckily the food being good was the redeeming factor.
Pleasant first time. Seated quickly, service and food good. Not too noisy, aside from loud adjacent table.
Food is great!!!!
Had to wait for someone to wait on us because "Rob" decided he didn't want to wait on us. This was our second time and no more impressed. If I go back it will be for the band last night.
