It was New Years Eve and we needed to eat something before heading over to friends place to ring in the new year. I didn’t know where to go, but I didn’t want to go far and a good friend told me to try State & Main in Mahogany. There we went! We were lucky as it was New Years Eve and a lot of other places were closed at this hour, so there was a continual rotation of parking opportunities. The place was busy and you can tell a lot of their customers were going to go to parties afterwards as well. It was a very festive atmosphere!
I knew the night ahead of me would have food and drinks so I didn’t require a lot. I got their Chicken Cheesesteak Sandwich and it was a very large portion and of course I got it with fries and gravy!
We also ordered their Main Burger as it seemed like something they’d be known for. More fries and more gravy! This was a delicious mess of goodness with the normal burger suspects of melted american cheese topped w/ lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle & sauce with 2 patties!
State and Main here in Mahogany was very delightful. We definitely ate more than expected as the potion sizes were larger than expected. And, with it being cold I ate everything! The prices were very reasonable, great food and excellent service. It was busy but they were mostly under control! We had an amazing time so I am sure I will return as it’s close, and awesome! I did have a site supervisor tell me he liked it here as well not too long ago. Maybe I’ll be creepy and try to bump into him one day…

Just located outside of Chinook Centre is a restaurant called State & Main which I wanted to try since it opened. It’s your typical cuisine which means burgers and steak place, and what makes this place good is that there’s tons of parking from the mall. I’m sure it’s going to be hectic during holiday shopping season!
We sat down and started with an appetizer to split and the special they had this particular evening was half off wings, so we got an order of Salt and Pepper Wings which was actually better than expected! The wings were crispy and seasoned nicely, and they had tons of meat on them!
I don’t normally order seafood from a place I’m first trying out but I really wanted to try their Applewood Salmon Club and I’m actually really glad I did. The burger was super tasty and it was amazing! I had 2 sides, which was their honey slaw and jalapeno cheddar mashed potatoes. My burger was made of applewood salmon in a toasted brioche bun with roasted red pepper aioli, lettuce, tomato, peppered bacon & fresh avocado. Like I said, it was amazing!
My husband ordered the Chorizo Sausage Lasagna which was really good as well. The portion was a nice size and the filling was delicous. Baked to perfection, this lasagna hit the shot as it was a hearty home cooking styled dish.
We enjoyed our meal so much, we ended up splitting a half order of Dirt Pie and to be honest, it was the perfect amount! This lovely dessert was a cake made of chocolate & mocha ice cream separated by a layer of fudge brownie chunks on top of a crumbled cookie crust. Yes, it was just as good as the description!
Overall, we really enjoyed this place and I’m sure I will be back. We enjoyed our time here. Food, service, atmosphere, location… all perfect!
