A welcoming contemporary restaurant with a touch of rustic charm, State Street Provisions is today’s answer to the taverns that once offered respite to the fishermen and tradesmen who worked in Boston’s bustling Long Wharf. Historically inspired but forward thinking food and drink menus feature fresh ingredients from near and far, while the comfortable space meets the needs and passing fancies of residents, workers and visitors alike.

Decided to try State Street Provisions for Mother’s Day as the menu seemed to have something for everyone’s tastes. The decor is nice, rustic with a contemporary flair to it. One unfortunate aspect of the meal was that service was a bit disjointed. While everyone liked their main, the appetizer oysters had shell fragments which was unappealing and bread service came at the same time as entree course. It took a while to get a cocktail, and by the time we ordered our appetizers and entrees a table that was seated after us had already received their apps. It wasn’t a big enough deal to ruin our experience, but just enough that everyone at the table mentioned the pacing seemed a bit off.

Overall I would give the place another shot, maybe at the bar next time.

Excellent experience. Cheese board was a fantastic and delicious appetizer. My boyfriend got the blueberry pancakes. They were sweet and delicious. I got the Lobster Benny - rich with plenty of legit lobster. If there was any criticism, it would be that the entrees came out Luke warm rather than hot. However this is our second trip here and we highly recommend.

Good option for dinner right near the aquarium. Also has a kids menu and is relatively kid friendly. Good yeast rolls are the beginning with salted butter, yum.

The ambience was nice but unfortunately the food was very salty. Every dish tasted the same and the service was substandard. The young blonde girl that was serving us clearly did not want to be there. She barely spoke, didn’t check on us periodically and when she did she seemed bothered. Definitely will not return.

Gnocci with boar was overcooked and seemed like it had been reheated, pizza came out cold, salad came out not modified as requested, chicken way too salty. Nobody in our party of five enjoyed their food. Would not recommend.

We had dinner here a couple of years ago and liked it so we decided to try it for brunch. We were disappointed. It took over an hour to get our food (we were a party of 4) and the server made no apologies. The crispy eggs benedict tasted like fish cakes. They must have been cooked in the same oil as the fish. We were seated near the entrance and every time the door opened, there was a blast of cold air. Too bad, we had enjoyed it the first time and looked forward to another good experience.

Best lobster bisque ever. Our whole group raved about it for days. Our waitress was super friendly and helpful. We wanted a quiet place away from the convention center to eat good food and catch up, and State Street Provisions totally delivered. This might be my regular PAX East go-to now.

Went on a Sunday with a friend. We were about 30 minutes late for our reservation but were seated without wait or question. Emily was our server, she did an amazing job. We were not ready initially but Emily was patient with us. Ordered the blue berry pancakes and the eggs benedict. Would definitely come back as proximity to aquarium was on point and the menu prices were reasonable.

They were not very accommodating with my parties gluten allergy. their menu does not have much if any options for GF people. someone in our party has a severe allergy to gluten from her celiac disease and when we asked the server what the options were, her response was "we are not good at gluten free" also the menu did not list that the deviled eggs had squid ink in the topinaud and another person in our party had a severe shell fish allergy, if i had not eaten and tasted the seafood, she would have gone into anaphylactic shock... they should try to be more transparent and accommodating with their menu.

Met friends for dinner after my partner and I visited the Aquarium. It was...underwhelming. Our server was very attentive and friendly, and the pours on the wine were generous, but the food was pretty meh. The best dishes we had were the tuna tartare, and a pear trifle dessert. But my "black and white linguine with clams" was a gloppy mess (lots of pasta stuck together, the clams were gritty, and there was no sign of the promised guanciale), and the boar in the gnocchi was overcooked and tough. Cocktails were ok. There are better options out there.

Our experience would have been fine if our waitress had not acted like she hated us and we were an inconvenience the whole night. From the very beginning she acted like she was in a huge rush every time she came to our table and like she had somewhere else to be. We were sitting in the bar area and it was pretty dead, only about 3 other tables max at any given time. We asked her questions about the menu and she blatantly said she didn't know the answers without offering to go ask someone and find out for us. After our meals we wanted to have another drink but she just brought the check without inquiring if we were interested in dessert or anything else so we just paid and went to the bar. It was only 8:30pm at this point so I don't think we were keeping them open. Every time we interacted with our waitress she made me feel bad for asking for things and generally just for being there. As a former bartender and server myself I can honestly say that this woman should not be working in the service industry.

We just weren't impressed. We didn't expect a gourmet meal, but for a simple fish and chips, and a burger, we weren't impressed. Soggy fries, lobster bisque was water consistancy with one nice sized chunk of lobster that was cold in the middle. The burger was sub standard and burgers aren't hard to do.

It was convenient, but we would have gotten better food if we walked over to Fanuel Hall!

Restaurant was quiet on a Sunday evening. My boyfriend and I dined thanks to a GILT voucher that covered an App ($18), we chose 6 oysters and two entrees (he chose the steak frites and I had to Lobster Roll) and two cocktails. The entrees were good, not outstanding but excellent for a small new to us place. Service was excellent.

The restaurant, on a Saturday night, was nearly empty and should have been a red flag. The atmosphere was really nice, I do not recall it being loud and the lighting was nice. I would recommend for drinks only. The food was really unimpressive... far too much salt and was slow to come out (surprising for how empty the place was, and for the fact that we got a cheese plate). Service was nothing special...slow, uninterested. The couple next to us was sat next to the door on a freezing cold night and requested to be moved. There were plenty of open tables so they were easily accommodated but also apparently forgotten about. They had been settled for some time be the time my party arrived, we recieced our drinks before anyone had even addressed them. When they asked our waitress, she said "let me go see who your server is"...literally a table for two RIGHT next to us. Of course, it was her but she took no blame citing "no one told her that they were moving someone to her section". Apparently not very observant. We will not be back.

Service was great. Good wine. Had the chilled shrimp. Very good but a little pricey. Also had the pork loin entree. It was good but pretty salty, oily and heavy. Not sure how the rest of the seafood here is but heard it was better. Other than that good for drinks, night out with friends or a date.

Very handy and reliable. My only complaint is the rooms wherever you sit are consistently drafty at lunch time. As if no one is turning the heat on to warm the place up. So if you are the type of person who gets chilled or are fighting a cold wait til spring.

The meal and the cocktails were delightful. The only problem we had was that our starters and our meal came out right after one another and our table was too small to accommodate all the food. The ham and cheese waffles were a little odd but the ham cheese and egg sandwich was amazing. The cheeses were a little weird but worth it.
