The food was just okay. The music was a bit too loud, it was hard to have a conversation. The service was great though. Our server was super cool and friendly. I think maybe her name was Sarah.

It was quite disappointing to arrive and find out they couldn't find my reservation. It didn't get resolved because they weren't too busy and were able to seat me and my friend without issue. It was REALLY loud in the main restaurant, so we sat in a tent where the tables were very far apart - at least 10 feet in most cases - but it was quite cold. They had propane heaters out on the patio, but it was way too cold for that. Finally, our waiter was nice but it felt like he forgot us a lot. We had to ask another waitress for him twice. But we did get drinks right away! I had their State Fare salad with steak and it was delicious!

This is the second time eating here. The food both times was outstanding and the server was great. The problem is with their outside dining. They advertise that they have heated outside seating and we even made a reservation indicating in the comments that we wanted to sit outside by the heaters. When we got there, we were told that they had no propane and could not use the heaters. During these times when restaurants are trying to attract diners and many want to eat outside for COVID safety reasons, there is no excuse to not have propane heaters working!

I’ve gone to state fare countless time but i’ve never had an enjoyable experience as i did this visit. our waiter was extremely sweet, not over bearing, but as soon as our bottomless mimosas were empty he was back with another round. I had asked how long he had been there & he said only 2 weeks. i definitely wanted to give him praise on how great he’s doing.

This was our first visit to State Fare. The food and cocktails were very nice, dessert was scrumptious and the service was excellent. A server came to us moments after being seated, and checked in periodically. Even though there was a decent crowd inside and outside, the food came out promptly but we did not feel rushed. There was one slightly loud and rowdy table outside, that motivated our decision to eat inside, but they moved inside after a while and were a bit distracting toward the end of our meal. But the food and service was excellent.

Food was delicious. I really appreciate how the table were spaced out. I felt like they adhered to all safety measures. It was so good I went back the next day with my mom and cousin for an early lunch.

Our first experience at State Fare was great earlier this year. Food and service were top notch. However, our last two times at State Fare may have been our last. Service was extremely slow both times. About 20 minutes for drinks (water and cocktails). Kids meals came out first, which was great. Then my husband's soup came next (about 40 minutes in) and then our appetizer followed that. About 5 minutes after that, we go our entrees, stacked on top of our soup and appetizer - about 45 minutes in. 10 minutes later, they tried to server our order a second time. Seems to be a disconnect with the kitchen. Food was ok but nothing to rave about like our first experience.

My crew and I had an amazing experience at State Fare! We loved the outdoor dining, we enjoyed watching the game outside, the whole atmosphere is a whole vibe. Yesterday was the first time my crew had been out since the pandemic and they enjoyed every bit of it!! We were celebrating a 60th Birthday as well, what better place to go!! We are looking forward to coming back again, Manager Donnie took great care of us and made sure we were comfortable! The food was great, the weather was amazing and the staff were friendly! Thanks State Fare

State Fair is a definite Ro Do when you find yourself in Catonsville on Restaurant Road (Frederick Rd). The Calamari was tender, the watermelon crush was refreshing and my Cauliflower Steak was a vegan delight (and I am not a vegan!) Great service and appropriate safety measures make this a place to go.

Slow service, appetizer came with no places or utensils, took 10 minutes to get the plates and it to eat the now lukewarm appetizer. Ask for an outside table in the open table reservation but then had to wait 30 minutes for an outside table. A dessert called s’mores tasted like jello pudding from a child’s lunch box. Coffee never came. Overall disappointing. I want to patronize local restaurants but State Fare was a waste of my time and money. There are many good places to eat in Catonsville.... avoid State Fare.
