At State & Main we believe in intersections. We celebrate the crossing of paths. We herald the spot where one road meets another. We toast the mash ups that create new things. Because at State & Main we live for connections. Connections between old friends and new acquaintances, and great food and good times. Since we opened our doors in 2012, there’s been craft beers and cocktails at the bar, reimagined scratch-made favourites on the menu and great tunes filling our easygoing atmosphere. And all for the purpose of bringing the best things in life together in one perfect place. This is that place. With over 20 locations across Canada and the US, State & Main offers the fresh made, hand-crafted food our guests expect coupled with an inviting beer and spirits line-up to quench any and every thirst. So we say, when you find yourself at a crossroads, sit back, order a drink, ponder the menu and make a connection at State & Main.

The food was amazing as usually. The service was also great. Our server was very attentive and did not rush out our main courses after our apps were finished. I have always recommended State and Main to family and friends. Glad they are opened again for dining in.

Waitress took too long to take orders and also for our bills to pay for our meals. One of the steaks was under cooked.

Good restaurant for an adult outing but less than ideal for kids. We were four adults and two toddlers and were placed at a table where it was impossible to get the high chairs situated so than adults could be with each Even though there was almost no one in the restaurant and lots of other more suitable seats. A clear indication that they are servicing adults not kids. The food was very good and timely.

Most of the food was good. Delicious soup and three of the meals were good, however, two of us had the veggie (black bean) burger. We had it in the past and it was juicy and delicious. This time we were disappointed. It was dry and we didn’t realize that American cheese was a cheese slice. Real cheese would be much better.

New Years Eve. The meal and the service was excellent. Found the tables to be on the smaller side. The ladies washroom could be be cleaner. For a fairly new restaurant I was surprised with the condition of the washroom. The ladies washroom the tiles were dirty and floor not well kept.

A female wait staff stated that she would bring us two waters ... the water did not come.

The Novemburger requires a minimum of two napkins. Why did the wait staff not check in on us so we could request extra napkins and the waters that were promised.

The Novemburger was disappointing... the balsamic glaze too strong for my taste. Personal preference... hats off to the chef because it likely will be a favorite with many others.

My wife's grilled cheese burger was outstanding.

All in all, we had a good hour of conversation with food and drinks between us.

Its always a great experience at this location. Food and atmosphere is great. Always very friendly service, but our table was a bit restless because entres took almost an hour from the time of ordering to get to the table. It might have been busy in the kitchen and we understand this sometimes happens.

Great friendly service ..efficient & our server knew his stuff when it came to ingredients..as a celiac i was put at ease that i would have nothing to worry about & the risks were made clear without making me feel bad about having celiac ..only negative is that there is no desert options for gfree ..not cool ..there are plenty of options out there that are easy to prepare creme brulee ..jello ..icecream ..flourless choc cake ..even m& m has a tuxedo cake you should have on hand for allergy ootions

Everything was to our satisfaction except when the waitress asked if we wanted any alcoholic beverages before taking our order and 1 person responded no she left and did not inquire with anyone else as to what our preference was. There were a couple of us who had reviewed the wine list and were ready to order
