Great big flavored food here! They get busy, so the service and wait time in the kitchen can drag a bit.

The service made the night. Our server, Bianca, was very attentive and made some great food and drink recommendations. Food was tasty and portion sizes were good too. This was our first visit, but we will definitely go again.

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.

Excellent service! Good comfort food. The appetizers are very tasty. The short rib although good, was not at the level of other restaurants. It was strange to see slices of beef rather than the rib itself.

Great place to meet up with friends. Great food and festive atmosphere on the weekends. I recommend families with children visit weekdays or off-peak weekends due to noise-level and very adult environment.

I enjoyed our visit overall. Two “complaints” we witnessed an employee use the sand towel used to wipe the seats to wipe the table with the same gloves used to set the table. Our waiter was great. Unfortunately it took 20 or so minutes to get our bill after we were asked if he were ready for the bill.

State Fare Kitchen used to be one of our favorite restaurants. I don't know if it is due to COVID or not, but the food was sub-par at best. We complained to our waitress about how bland our guacamole was and requested some salt and lime. Then later told her that that didn't help the situation; she just shrugged and never asked if we wanted something else or offered to take it off the bill. Sadly our main courses weren't any better. We won't be returning anytime soon.

Highly recommended for breakfast! A friend and I shared the brunch board. It will feed 3 people easily. Food was delicious. Mimosas were perfect blend of juice & champagne.

Our server Bianca was amazing and very prompt with taking our orders and getting us refills. The food was amazing. We had the banana French toast, state fare breakfast, burrito (which was huge) and the tex grilled cheese. We had the pineapple mimosas (so good) and recommend getting the carafe. We also split the frozen cocktail flight. The lavender lemonade was good but we didn’t really care for the margarita or pomegranate one.
Definitely will be back again!

My aunt and I wanted to have a dinner catch up, and State Fare was the perfect spot. The food was meticulously prepared and presented. It came across as “Texas chic”. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and look forward to dining there again.
