So the food is exceptionally good! The drinks were good as well. Now the portions are ridiculously big!! I mean I felt guilty leaving so much food on my plate but the servings are almost for 2-3 instead of 1. I think they could do a great deal for the socially conscious folk by reducing portion size while still maintaining their great quality!

I enjoyed State Fare. There was a bit of a wait before my reservation but the staff was super friendly and communicated throughout the wait. Beware the food portions are legit Texas State Fair size. The food is also really good. Our server was extremely busy because he had so many large tables but he was equally friendly and provided awesome service. Highly recommend.

Great experience as always .. our waitress Jasmine was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu items when asked.. I enjoyed the jumbo fried shrimp, fries, slaw and the jalapeño hush puppies. The food arrived to our table hot and fresh.

The margarita flights are always a good taste...

Our server was amazing!!! Friend green tomatoes were good and southern charcuterie board was great.
I got the hot fried chicken but it lacked flavor, needed some salt. The hot oil is ok but needs some seasoning for sure.

Took a friend to lunch here. He had never been. Lively crowd so it’s a bit noisy but not over the top. Server was great. She suggested the queso with brisket it was great. Our entrees were great. Service was well paced. Mgr came by and we told him how much we enjoyed its

Unfortunately we didn’t have a good time :( our server hardly stopped by the table (which is understandable if understaffed/have a lot of diners however we had to send our pores back twice and the server knew we wanted to place different orders and never returned to take that order :/)

Also, the POKE bowl I ordered to go when I placed my first order was not tasty - the rice was undercooked.

Not only was the staff amazing but the management was too. A few different managers stopped at the table to check on us first time at the restaurant. I live in Colorado but visiting my mom for a late Mother’s Day lunch. We loved it and I look forward returning when I’m back in town. I give this restaurant 5 stars!

We LOVE brunch at State Fare! It’s always hustling and bustling but happy to make a reservation for a great time! Flights of mimosas and bloody Mary’s are amazing! There’s a frozen drink fight that we’ll try next! The pickle dip and BBQ chips and fried green tomatoes are to die for! Tons of choices for brunch items and the biscuit and pancakes are the size of your head! Yum! Service is wonderful and servers are charming and full of energy! See you soon!

The services was great but the one thing I was looking forward to was the food and it was very underwhelming. The chips with our dill pickle dip were under cooked. The fried chicken sandwich tasted ok but the fry kept coming off and the piece of chicken was way to big for the bun. And lastly the French fries were soggy and under seasoned. The drinks were great!

Food was great but the restaurant is so noisy, cannot relax and visit. Waiter was ok, service was very slow. That was ok but with the noise level was a bit much. Valet parking was horrible, we waited 30 minutes in the rain to get our car.

We were seated right away and had a very nice server. Two of the five is us ordered the Airline Chicken. It was super dry. Like very hard to swallow. When our waitress asked about our meal I told her my thoughts. She said that they’ve heard that before and are trying to fix it. She took one of them off the ticket which was very nice. My son had the pork chop. It was huge and he loved it. My mom really enjoyed the catfish.

Visited for brunch on a Sunday morning, heard about the famous flights so I had to stop by! We arrived and were quickly seated thanks to open door. The atmosphere is awesome and the service was exceptional. The food was amazing the brunch flight is a must especially if it is your first time! And the Margarita frozen flight did not disappoint. Overall great food and service will be returning!

An enjoyable experience was except for a few things. My wife's green beans were overcooked and soggy. No bueno. Also, the portions were just too big. Either of our plates would've been enough for both of us. Our table was about twice as long as it was wide, making for a crowded dining area. The distance between us combined with noise of the music and other diners made it necessary to not use my inside voice.

We dined here for brunch on a Saturday so the energy level was super high and so was the noise level. The food and service were great! You get a lot of food for your money!

At 66, I was obviously too old for this restaurant. There was only one valet attendant. The crowd was young and loud. The food was fine and my group Enjoyed themselves. The waitstaff was excellent and cocktails were delicious. It was packed for 10:30 am Saturday.

I’d recommend it to the right demographic.

Everything was good except the service. I asked for cutlery and the brought it at the end of our meal. I had to use a spoon to eat my burrito. We had to ask a different server for coffee. For a good 15-20 mins we didn’t see our server.

Good food, the music was pretty loud though and it wasn’t anything memorable. If I’m in the area again I wouldn’t mind coming back but wouldn’t drive an hour from the Woodlands again for it.
