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. State Street Provisions is located at the intersection of State Street and Atlantic Avenue on Long Wharf, one of Boston’s most storied landmarks. Breaking ground in 1710, the Wharf was a vibrant hub for the Colonial U.S. shipping industry and originally extended nearly half a mile from the shoreline at Faneuil Hall.

Everything was delicious. My only nitpick is that the cappuchinos came out lukewarm (3 people ordered them at our table and they were all like that). The bloody mary was the best I've ever had though, nice and spicy! And the food was the best meal of the weekend! We got lobster bennies, caesar salad, and lobster rolls.

Had a great recommendation from theGM for the calamari which was served ceviche style and was amazing! The winter sangria was also very delicious! I had the short rib, which I subbed some brussel sprouts instead of the potatoes and the dish was extremely tasty! Will come back!

We've been to State Street Provisions many times and always enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service.

My husband and I went for Valentines this year and unfortunately had a disappointing visit. The food was good - but the service was really terrible. The place was only 1/2 full so it was surprising. Our waitress barely came back to see us throughout dinner; resulting in our need to reach out to someone else even for our bill. We aren't the complaining types; but this visit definitely wasn't a good one. Will decide if we'll return; but likely won't allow one bad visit to change our minds for the future.

Good food and a neighborhood stalwart. The fish and chips were tasty; the fish was light and fluffy; the fries were flavorful.

Our server was great and very accommodating for our group of 6...lots of variety and good choices on the menu which which awesome...we are fans of Russell House and was fun to learn that St Street is a member of the same restaurant group as RHP and Temple Bar...

Found this as I was driving into Boston. Was very convenient that it is located right by Faneuil Hall and the aquarium for easy parking and access to shops after dinner.

Food was excellent, service was very good. What took away from our experience at the bar was that it was like a kiddie day care center. Why were a couple of children of one party being seated at the bar? Why was another party of 10 or so people with two very energetic little kids that were running around allowed to be in the bar area? Come on folks. Bars are for adults. Management should deal with this out of respect for the adults who are paying for premium drinks. We'll be back and hopefully this won't be an issue in the future.

Very nice dinner, and although we didn’t realize it when we arrived early (5:30) $1 oysters until 6:00 every night. As a result, the bar was packed more than the dining room at first. But $1 oysters were available there for us as well. And, the main courses, grilled scallops and fish and chips, were very good also.

Great food - our server was rushing us the entire time. Made for a short dinner - which may have turned into more cocktails, coffee and dessert. As a person who travels a ton for business - recognizing the optics of a table and the potential spend would be something I would suggest.

My sister and I came for brunch after a conference. They were able to seat us 30 minutes prior to actual reservation time, which was really great. Please wasn’t overly crowded, but from the beginning we realize how loud it was. We had to turn the table to sit closer so that we could have a conversation. My sister ordered the Mediterranean salad with salmon on top. The salad was fresh, but not very much of it. The salmon was very salty and very very fishy. I ordered the yogurt parfait, and the avocado toast. There’s probably less than 3 ounces of yogurt, with a little jam. The toast was a thin piece of bread, with max 2 tablespoons of smashed avocado on top. Some crunchy chickpeas, and a small pepper. Totally not worth what they were charging. All In all, I was less than impressed. Especially for the price!

I had the braised short rib and it was delicious. My girlfriend had the scallops which were delectable. Make sure to make reservations as it was packed for a Thursday night. Staff was attentive and gave us plenty of time to enjoy our meal. We had Island Creek Oysters (Duxbury) for our appetizer. Wine list was more than adequate and drink list was interesting. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Understaffed so we waited a long time for our drinks. Bartender seemed not to notice that we were waiting (although we were seated in bar area). Other wait staff, when signaled, shrugged and said they would let our waiter know. On top of everything, had a few oysters that just weren’t good. This is a major change since I visited this spot several times over the summer, when service was commensurate with the crowd and very attentive.

This was really a poor meal from a place I've come to expect more from. Fish tasted old, kids food was very late and french toast was raw and too dangerous to have kids eat, and no one seemed to actually be our server.

Our food and drinks were phenomenal- I highly recommend the braised short ribs and salmon poke bowl.
The noise level from the bar was a bit loud for those of us trying to enjoy a dinner and have a conversation. The curtains do no not provide adequate sound blocking or absorption.
Staff is quick and efficient but not as educated on liquor or wine as they should be for working in a metropolitan restaurant.
We will definitely return for an earlier, more casual dinner in the bar.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at State Street Provisions. We celebrated my sister’s birthday, and the energy and ambiance blended to aid to the celebration.
My brother-in-law and I throughly enjoyed our Pork Chop, my sister loved her Sea Bass and their preparations which were unique and delicious. The only reason we did not rate the Food as Excellent was that my husband who had Scallops and Pork Belly thought they were not well seasoned, and the Pork Belly was not cooked sufficiently.

The brunch food was excellent. Oysters was fresh. Seating was comfortable and ambient atmosphere, makes it a nice place to catch-up with friends or family. But our server that day was not that attentive. After he cleaned off our table, we were chilling a little bit longer and finishing our drinks. But we never saw him come back or at least give us a heads up maybe his shift is over and somebody else can help us or whatsoever. Nope. We have to flag down another waiter and he was nicer. Overall, the food was good and a nice atmosphere. We probably will go back again.
