    I have dined here before and enjoyed myself. This visit was not as pleasurable. First, the table where we were seated was still wet, I assume from being cleaned and the menus that we were given were worn and tattered. I didn’t want to touch either. Next, our waiter Kennedy was disengaged and we had to ask other waitstaff to have him come to our table 3 times. The restaurant was not busy at all so there was no reason for him to be gone for extended periods of time. The food and drinks were the best things about the visit, and I wish everything else had been up to par.

    State Fare restaurant was unfortunately a bit dissapointing and over-rated. Service was good, staff made sure to push the specials as instructed while management circled around, hovering over the guest. The table for two was ridiculously small reducing what wss supposed to be a comfortable dinning experience. Bruch: my pouch eggs with hollandaise sauce was cold and not flavorful at all. I did not enjoy the alvacado toast as the bread was soggy and over-loaded with the street corn making it undesirable and clumsy to eat. My sautéed spinach was over seasoned. The country sausage was subpar. Drinks: excellent bartending Overall i expected better granted the social reputation, and the meal for two was considerably expensive

    Know that if you sit in the Music Room it is for larger groups and it is very, very loud. There is no sounds abatement at all. Also, the service was slow due to multiple large groups and only one waitress. I have been here several times but this visit was miserable.

    The server was very attentive. The Shrimp and Crab Louie was okay. The crab smelled like it wasn't fresh enough to be on a crab Louie. We also had the King Ranch Chicken Spaghetti, and it came out on the cold side where the queso was hard.

    I ordered the hot chicken. The coating was amazing but the chicken was so dry I couldn’t cut it. Also very over priced for what you get. The other guests in my party liked their entrees but also felt it was overpriced. Music was really loud, but James our waiter had it turned down so we could talk. James was an amazing waiter.

    I ordered the King Ranch casserole. It was absolutely amazing! My colleague ordered the Nawlins tails and grits and really enjoyed it too. The portions are HUGE-- we both had enough to share and save for dinner. Also, the lemonade was perfect: not too tart, not too sweet. We topped it off with a HUGE funnel cake and were not disappointed-- that was enough to share with 8 more people at the office. This was our first time at State Fare and we were thoroughly pleased. We also had wonderful service from Leylah. We will definitely be back!

    I will definitely be coming back to State Fare! Had brunch there on Sunday morning while visiting the city and ordered the Banana Stuffed French Toast with a side of scrambled eggs with cheese, bacon, and a mimosa flight. Sooo delicious! It wasn't too busy when I arrived with my friends but we also had a reservation so being seated wasn't a hassle. The vibe of the restaurant was laid back and aesthetically pleasing. I can't wait to visit again!

    The food is Amazing and there is so much of it. My best friend and I shared a meal, and we still took home reasonably portions. The ambience is welcoming, friendly, and inviting. The staff from the Manager to the Bus personnel are friendly and helpful. They made me feel as if I was the only customer in the entire restaurant. I will definitely be back.

    Overall, the restaurant and food quality was excellent. My reservation was at 6:30 pm for 7 people and I was seated immediately by the hostess, with no wait! This was awesome considering the business of the Saturday night. On the other hand, my party of 7 was sat in a round table where it was slightly tight, but not a major issue. I believe a bigger table would have helped, but it was not terrible. I did leave a note on my reservation that it was for a birthday, so I wish that note would have been honored with an acknowledgement or a small complimentary dessert. That would have been very nice. Despite this, the food was great and appetizers and entrees came out in a timely manner. Our server was kind as well.

    We had a party of 6, made reservations and was promptly seated upon arrival. Great bar selection. Waiter was great with food allergies in our party, knew what was safe and double checked with the chef anyway. Fried green tomatoes were perfect! I ordered the smoked double porkchop, let me just say it was the BEST porkchop I have EVER had!! Cooked perfectly and evenly throughout the chop, and the taste was unbelievable. Will definitely be returning.

    Family dinner to celebrate a birthday. Everyone enjoyed their main entrees and food, but the highlight was the drinks and apps. The jalapeño hush puppies and fried green tomatoes were a hit. I enjoyed my meal of shrimp and grits and the mule was on point. Definitely recommend and will revisit to try some of the burgers on menu.
