The west side of Houston definitely needed a restaurant like State Fare! It was a nice dining experience. We were there late afternoon between Christmas and New Year's Eve, and the restaurant was not crowded at all. Our waiter, Cameron, was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. We both had hamburgers, but they were big enough to split. I had the "Flight" of 4 frozen drinks for $15 at Cameron's suggestion. It was a great way to explore their drink menu. Their food menu has a little bit of everything, so it's a good choice for finicky appetites. We will definitely go back!

The fried catfish tasted as if it was fried in old grease. The coleslaw was swimming in mayonnaise. The hushpuppies tasted over cooked. Will I go back? No.

The place is not what it used to be. I have given them 3 chances over the last month, both food and service have slipped considerably. I’ve reached out and received zero response. Sad what has happened to a once fun lunch spot.

I've gone to State Fair previously and always had a good time. This time was completely different. Our waitress was not attentive. We had to ask 3 different workers including a manager to find her. The restaurant was not packed but she was never around. Her mask was too big for her face which means she kept having to pull it up and touch her nose. This made us very uncomfortable. This was not a good experience this time.

It was very nice except the music was way too loud to even hear the person next to me. Our fabulous water Yancy had it turned down so it was much better. Food was good. Burger was great
I would def come back again!

The food was good but it was 6 of us, all of our hashbrowns were so salty they weren't edible. And I love salt. I ordered the crabcakes, so I asked the waitress for a fruit side to compensate the side. I was allergic to the melon bowl so I had to send it back. So the manager came and he suggested the asparagus which is fine, but he charged my ticket. It was alot of back and forth. The waitress was annoyed, it was just too much and my food was cold by then. My guest wasnt happy with the drinks. But were happy with the food taste besides the hashbrowns... so overall the experience was just ok.

It’s a nice restaurant, would probably be nice for a girls brunch, but if you’re just wanting to grab a bite to eat I wouldn’t recommend it. Service was slow, and while the food was good it was overpriced.

Staff is courtesy and welcoming. Waiter was very understanding and patient of the other half our couples date night that arrived a little later. Amidst the wait he suggested the margarita flight and appetizers which were all good. FYI, the Lavender Lemonade margarita is a pure delight for the taste buds. We tried got appetizers: the wings and the queso w/ brisket, etc. All so, so good. Entrees were various around the table: from the crab cakes, purest Mac ‘n cheese with a secret menu addition of a quite tender sliced roast, salmon w/ asparagus, bun-less burger and more. The ambiance was nice and the music in rotation was definitely on point. Even the Octoberfest that was ordered with the bun-less was a nice top-off to the meal.
Overall it was our first visit among us all and a great couples date night out ☺️ We look forward to another visit!

The girls at the front were a little flaky. At 12:10, I called and asked if I could come before my 1:15 reservation. I was told they had nothing earlier. 12:20, My husband walked to see about the wait. He was told about 20 minutes. After 30 minutes we walk in to ask about our table. The girl that took our information, looked at us and said, “Oh yeah”. We were immediately sat. When we sat down, we received 3 texts. I think they forgot about us. I told the girl at sat us we also had an online reservation at 1:15. Then I received an email stating that I missed my reservation. Again, I think the girls forgot.

However, the food was great!
