It was okay but the ambiance, vibe, and professionalism of the workers (from the hostesses to the waitstaff) is so different from their Sugar Land locale.They have a very “bothered” vibe when assisting you at this Memorial location. Definitely prefer the Sugar Land one much more and probably wouldn’t go back to this one.

Great food and reasonably priced. The service was good considering I think there was a shortage of servers. Our group understood and even though it took a little longer to get some things we were not in a hurry. We had 2 extra people join us after we had finished our lunch and they were very accommodating! Gave our extra guests water and didn’t act like it was an inconvenience or hurried us to leave. Highly recommend !!

My girls & I decided on this place to try the flight drinks, but we ended up leaving loving everything. Our server was amazing & on top of it! I tried the Redfish and it was absolutely delicious with the mashed potatoes and garlicky spinach! Next time I want to try brunch! I highly recommend this place!

Now that I am vaccinated, I have been going back to all my old favorites that are still open. Luckily, State Fare is one of those places. Our waiter was new and still being shadowed by another waiter - but no need - he was wonderful and checked on us often, making sure everything was perfect. I got my old favorite, the Southwest Caesar Salad, and it was huge and delicious. My friend's fish tacos were yummy as well. I can't wait to go back again.

Didnt at all enjoy the food. My wife and I tried the CFS and Chilli Cheeseburger. I immediately returned the burger for a plain cheeseburger and was equally disappointed; I took one bit and pushed it aside. My wifes CFS was also underwhelming. She may have eaten three bits. $60 wasted.

Very diverse menu. There were many options that I will have to come back and try. Complimentary Valet, tips recommend. Also free garage parking. We were in a Booth, so it was quiet. Other areas were more open, so it could be louder, but wasn't bad. Food was incredible and well presented. Service was very good and prompt.

I had the poached eggs over crab cakes and a side of spicy brown sugar bacon. Everything was so delicious! The frozen flight was excellent as well. I invited my cousin and her boyfriend there, since they had never been. They really enjoyed themselves.

Restaurant was short of staff or something because our waitress took our order and didn’t even come check back on us until she brought us our check. We will not be dining in there again.

Loud. Went for lunch a few months ago and sat outside. Much better experience then. Great waiter then. This time was date night it and we were sat smack dab close to two other tables. Not enjoyable. Too close. We could hear each other’s conversations. The waiter was just okay. Service good. He just never smiled and seemed to not be happy. He was not rude. He just looked not happy. Food was good this time, but not great.
Will go again but maybe for lunch only. Definitely not for date night.

Everything was delicious that we ordered. I've never had a bad bite of food from State Fare and I've been several times. The noise level was a little much, but it was only because I'm sure everyone was enjoying themselves. Nothing to be upset about.

Been a long-time diner here and I've seen the quality of the food go down, service is slower (30 mins to get first drink), and bartenders don't know how to make anything off menu. Top it off that the noise level here is deafening lately. Disappointing, to say the least.

The first waiter that was helping us seemed to be elsewhere instead of being attentive with us, he would disappear and when we finally saw him we called him but he had no sense of urgency and his energy wasn't the best.

I went there before with a group of ladies and our waitress was amazing so to have the opposite experience was a bit disappointing because I had taken my family with me.

Once I spoke w/the manager and got someone else to help us, things changed and our experience was so much better.

We had a great dinner! The pork chops are huge! My husband needed a doggie bag. I had the fried chicken sandwich. It was delicious! My siblings got the fried whomp and catfish. All was great. My beer was ice cold! My brother’s first drink wasn’t right, but that was corrected.

We will be going back!

the ambience was great! the staff cordial. the 3 of us ordered burgers, which were HUGE! fries were good. my only regret was that I chose the burger with pimento cheese, and the creamy cheese made the whole thing awful. i didn't even enjoy the burger that i gave up halfway. unfortunately, the server never asked how the food was. so I let it go. fortunately, the whiskey glazed brussels sprouts saved the day. my 2 friends enjoyed their burgers (as each had a different one). would i return again? probably so, but will most definitely pass the pimento cheese burger.

Had a large group for happy hour and our server Laura as fantastic. Super attentive, welcoming, helpful, personable, just superb. Everyone in the group commented how great the night was and I attribute it all to Laura.

We had several appetizers which were all great especially the fried chicken/waffle dish. And the old fashioneds were a huge hit.

Thank you State Fare!

I love this restaurant, however they had an off evening. I ordered my food but it took 30 minutes for me to receive it. The Server acted as if he had no idea what was going on with my food… turns out the food was given to another table. The Manager brought out the food and apologized. The food was good and hot but I was just upset about the food taking 30 minutes to get to me.
