While staying in the Uptown area during a visit to Dallas, we had one dinner and two lunches at State & Allen. It’s a low key and fun restaurant with exceptional food. Dinner during the week found it busy with a younger crowd and a...More

I've only ever been here for the Saturday brunch (mainly because of the $3 mimosa's) but have heard its good for all meals. Each time I eat there I've tried something different on the menu, and each time I'm not disappointed. I would highly recommend...More

The State and Allen Lounge (SAL) is indeed a fabulous destination neighborhood restaurant and bar when visiting uptown Dallas. The service is attentive, the menu is creative, and quite frankly the whole scene is appealing. Whether you dine al fresco for brunch and watch your...More

This adorable little spot right in the middle of a residential district is a hidden gem off the beaten path. Most people stick to McKinney and lose out on the great food and cocktails this place has to offer. Don't cheat yourself!

In town for a meeting and met son and daughter for dinner at State and Allen. Weds nite is half price wine (glass or bottle) so a bonus. We shared the charcuterie board to start ($14). Reasonable mix of cold cuts but nothing exceptional. Had...More

A very pleasant location with an open-air ambiance. We visited on Wednesday which is half-off wine night. Our waiter was very friendly, informative, and attentive. Our entrees ranged from a delicious crab-stuffed salmon, Buffalo chicken sandwich, a second one served on a salad rather than...More

Really loved the interior - comfy and trendy at the same time. You can't beat mimosas for $2.50 (more champagne than oj, too) or bloody Mary's for $5. Service was great. Glad we'd booked ahead because if was crowded and we were on a fixed...More

Stopped in to meet up with some friends. Ended up having a few drinks a well. Club sandwich was delicious. Missus had the filet, and raved about it. Especially when you consider the price. Food was good, drinks were well made, and ambiance was relaxing....More

State & Allen Kitchen+Bar is one of those Dallas neighborhood establishments that is as real and as effortlessly fun as the people who frequent it. A place for a quick cocktail, or impeccably prepared food accompanied by a selection from an impressive wine list. We are your living room away from home, where you can hang out on our patio and enjoy good drinks, catch a sports game on the big screen-and above all, have a great time with old friends while making new ones.
