I brought a first-time out of town friend for what I hoped would have been a fun happy hour to top off the end of her visit to Houston. First, my mistake was, I didn't know that happy hour ends at 6p.m.--I didn't check. However, my reservation was for 6p.m.

We arrived right before 6, were seated right away, and given the cocktails menu. When asked for the happy hour menu, the waitress was gracious and brought it to us and explained happy hour ended at 6. Although we were there and seated just before 6, she was very courteous and polite, and offered to see what she could do to get our food choices in; it was 6:05p.m. by then, and of course, nothing. That wasn't her fault.

This was very disappointing to my guest and I as I had raved about my State Fare experience on previous visits, so, the hype was there!

My question is, why is there no flexibility even when guests arrive prior to 6 and aren't visited at the table in time to ensure we can partake in the happy hour experience? We were so disappointed. It was supposed to be happy hour! It was only five minutes too late when our order was taken...was it our fault?

The manager never visited our table knowing our issue to even say "I'm sorry, but..." When we thought he was coming over to visit, he turned and went the other way.... Wow! Quite frankly, my observation of him with guests in a different party wasn't that great--actually, he was kind of dry. You don't have to be "over bubbly" but, a little energy is good.

The server/waitress could not have been more perfect. Her superior service excellence and courtesy throughout our visit is to be commended. I believe her name began with a "T". She deserves a "Gold Star" award!

So much for making an impression!

The menu was incorrect it said 6+ with added gratuity. This can be very misleading. We only had have people in our party, and the manger said it was a misprint and the new menus have came out yet. Overall it was a great experience. I feel like the company should think about moving into reservation only. Because one time I came
It was a two hour wait without a reservation.

Food was delicious and plentiful. I had the ham and cheese omelet and hash browns. I added mushrooms, spinach and bell peppers. The hash browns were seasoned perfectly and the frozen flight was delicious.

State Fare is great, but it is very loud. If you want to have intomate convos, maybe try dinner? But the brunch is very live and the food is great!

The restaurant is very loud and makes it very difficult to have conversations with people at the table. Something needs to be done to tone down the noise levels.

Good service. Made an rsvp and initially was seated inside, but when asked to sit outside, they were accommodating, even though there were people waiting to be seated! Server was great and patient, even though he was working the entire patio (probably eight or so tables).

We got a lovely seat outside by the fountain. Shaded and a nice breeze made the atmosphere really special, as it was my first time seeing my parents in a year. The beet arugula salad was amazing and the burger was good. The only downside was the noise from the freeway and the grilled cheese sandwich.

The food and service were great. We were seated in a small room and it was very crowded and the music was to loud. We had reservations for 3 and still had to wait over 30 minutes for our table. They seated us at a table for 6. With the noise level and distance in seating it was very difficult to talk without screaming. Next time I will request main dinning room only.

The food at State Fare is so good. Every time I go the dish I try never fails and there mimosas are the bomb but I will warn you, you will feel like you need to be wheeled out after you finish your meal and drink.

I have been here several times, service was not up to prior service levels. Food took too long to be delivered, waiter was not attentive. Blamed the kitchen for being backed up.

State Fare wanty bad but it does seem like a stepped up Cheddars. My pork chop was overcooked and swimming in sauce. My wife loved her fish though.

Don’t go on a Saturday night if you want to hear anything but loud music and obnoxiously loud patrons. Never ever again.
