Came out for a Sunday Brunch with the girls checking out a new spot in the Memorial area. The portion of food was huge, enough to split a meal and share with one or two people but note there is a $3 charge to split a meal with anyone at your table and the mimosas were really good too and a decent price for Houston for drinks and food combined. I definitely come back to check out brunch and dinner here.

This place earned every one of their 5 stars. The staff was on point, and exceeded expectations. The food came out quickly, with zero errors. The frozen drinks came in a flight, so we could try all 4 of them. They were nicely balanced and surprisingly good. Especially the lavender lemonade, and cranberry surprise. We'll be back to try more of your great food, we both had burgers were very well elevated.

We were really impressed with this place. Our server was outstanding and the food was really yummy. I have 4 boys ages 4-15 plus a husband and everyone found something they liked. I even found a salad with tuna tartar that was delish! This is a great place for families as they have a lot of large booths and you can "lock'em" and we let our kids go walk around the shopping center. Definitely give it a try and check out their Rock and Roll Room, it's a secret swanky private room. And don't let the lack of cars in the parking lot fool you. They offer valet and I think it's free so that's why there are no cars parked upfront. Otherwise, they have a nice parking garage that is free to park.

The overall service was good. Our waitress helped with options available though she was slow bringing back salt, pepper, and ketchup. Still a great experience.

I love State Fares food and frequently go. This visit, the service was horrible! The waitor was not attentive at all. I had to go to the bar to get refills for my water. There weren’t many people in the restaurant at all so I’m not sure why the service was so horrible. My food was very spicy, I asked the waitor for water multiple times and never got it. Finally after I went to the bar, I told the waitor I got my own water from the bar. He totally didn’t care, it almost seemed as if this was the norm for him. Glad the food was good but the service was horrible

All three of us ordered the tortilla soup. And all of us had lukewarm soup. I thought since they were actually pouring the broth at the table that it would be piping hot, but no. The soup tasted fine, but should have been hot. Service was good, albeit a little slow. That was OK since we had a lot to talk about. The restaurant was very loud however and we could barely hear one another.

Our seats were so close to our neighbors' that we could hear their conversations.

The mimosa flight was the perfect mix of flavors, but they were not strong.

The food portions were very generous as you can tell from the photos.

The grits had an untraditional flavor that I really enjoyed.

The pancake was good, but was a bit too thick. I honestly only enjoyed the edges.

Our server Maddie made our night. Excellent service from the moment she greeted us at our table. Fantastic recommendations on the berry bread pudding. Portions are very generous and we are glad we split our grilled Burria sandwich. A companion’s burger was really bountiful. Our queso and chips generously served all four diners. A neighboring table’s freakin huge funnel cake was exactly that. Freakin huge! We loved it and loved the ambience and music. Will be back.

The food was amazing and I love the fact that I was able to make a reservation ahead of time and I was seated right when I arrived. I think the only thing that I did not like was the coffee. I think that’s more of a preference, because I like mine to be a little bit dark and this was a little bit more on the lighter side for me and the fact that they only had half and half as an option for creamer.

Great food and excellent waiter , been here a couple times and the staff has always been great. This place stays busy so book a table here in advance . Portions are huge and tasty. Drinks were great as well. This is the perfect place for brunch with friends or family. Dont forget to inquire about their secret brunch board, its kinda amazing !

French toast was burnt. We weren't greeted by our server for a long time. We had to track other servers down to ask for things that our server forget. It was my sisters birthday, and we did not enjoy ourselves.

We arrived 45 minutes early and we still were promptly seated. Management personally checked on every table and our server was amazing. She checked on us periodically and made sure we were doing well. She was very attentive and treated us very well. The food and beverages were delicious as always and the portions were huge.

We eat here frequently and have enjoyed it very much! This past Sunday was just bad all around. My avocado toast came with over done eggs when I requested sunny. It took about 20 minutes to get replacement eggs. By that time the rest of the meal was cold and my appetite was ruined. Not sure if we will ever go back.

The food was good however the service was really slow, the restaurant was very busy but that’s not an excuse, my Family and I sat for almost 10 minutes before we got water, all I can say is do better State Fare because I drove too far for bad service.

Our dining experience was wonderful. We were not rushed to give up our table during anytime of dining. This was great as we realized when we left we has been there a few hours. HAILEY was and is amazing so if we disliked anything it was overlooked because we had an amazing server!
