The food is SO so good. You honestly cant go wrong with anything on the menu but a few of my favorite are the queso, mac and cheese, chicken and pancakes and the huevos rancheros! YUM

This was our first visit to State Fare. The menu was great and the food we ordered was very good. The place is popular and will fill up as it did for our brunch visit. Our party was 5 plus and infant and we did not have a problem with seating. Valet parking out front is recommended to use and free to State Fare guest. Our waiter did reach over us a lot but in general the service was good. We will return for another visit.

Good food but too few healthy options. Very noisy. Music way too loud to enjoy dinner conversations. Overall good not excellent.

The drinks were great but the food was just ok. We went during brunch and ordered two different entrees but we weren't impressed. We will try it again for dinner or happy hour to see if the other food items are better.

Amazing! Wonderful! Tasteful! Everything about this place screams YeeHaw! I also ordered the green fried tomatoes but since my main entree came out, i cancelled the order but the chef personally came out and gifted me the fried green tomatoes. Thanks to the manager. That’s what i call SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY!!

I found the State fair Kitchen & Bar to be a hidden gem, tucked away just outside of Memorial City. The food and service were quite good. I would definitely return and will tell my friends about the restaurant.

The food was good but I ordered something to go with no sauce and it was covered in sauce. Super disappointing

The food was good, service OK. The noise level was so loud I had problems hearing the person next to me. Ruined the experience. I won't be returning.

The food was so good! Went to brunch with my boyfriend & we thought everything was delicious. The Bloody Mary flight was amazing. Definitely make reservations if you are going on a Sunday!

Enjoyed my meal so much. First time for my guest and she loved it as well. Texas Greyhound is still my favorite but the bartenders can make anything.

Service was sub-par. The waitress definitely didn't want to be there and it showed. Had to move as table was uneven and bouncing around. Food was good but overpriced for what it was. There's better options around.

This is the second time I’ve been here. Really a nice place. Service was great and the food very good. This is a noisy place so I don’t think I’d come for a romantic dinner but the vibe is good. Great they they have valet it’s a high traffic area.

Made a reservation still had to wait not the food was over priced for what it was the server was great it was just the hostess ladies at the front that did not set off the good experience. Manager was doing a great job though she was running things but the hostess was super slow

Amazing food and service!! They have a pickle dip with Bar-B-Q chips made in house and it’s sooooo good! We had brunch and it was all so good. They actually seated us a little early even though they were packed. Would definitely recommend😉

The food is above average especially the hot fried chicken. Interesting menu very appetizing. The day we went the service was slow. Like an hour wait for the food to come out slow. The server was friendly enough but the kitchen was way behind and it wasn’t that busy. We actually got our food before the 6 top next to us who were storing around waiting when we were seated. The manager did apologize and checked on us after the food showed up. Could be just an off day. Obviously a salad shouldn’t take that long.

The food, especially their brunch menu is one of the best in Houston. The drinks (flights) are a must to try but the Ocean Water margarita is the best in my opinion.

Got there a little early for our reservation, checked in and went to the bar. The bar was understaffed and seemed to be out of glasses and it was obvious the two bartenders were t communicating with the bar-backs or each other ... they were not ready for Valentines Day, of even a regular busy Friday night. Took the bar more than 10 minutes to even come take our drink order ... and our table was ready before we got a drink.

They sat us in the “kid room”, which was odd considering there were plenty of open tables in the main dining room.

Within minutes, we had screaming kids two tables over - I know it’s not their fault, just bad parenting - which really made what should have been a nice relaxing dinner a less-than enjoyable experience. After about 10 minutes of screaming, I went to ask the manager to intervene or move us, neither happened ... though there (still) were plenty of open tables.

We loved the food, the table service was good, but you could tell they were short too.

Not sure what’s changed at State Fare, but I hope they get a handle on it so it gets back to the solid service and attention to detail we can again enjoy for our date nights.
