Great Food - (click for menu)

The best downtown sports bar and grill in Traverse City. Chef Maurice creates themed entrees for each exciting game or event- and Traverse City has a lot of special events and festivals!

Great Atmosphere

Come on down and enjoy watching your favorite sports team on one of our 11 big screen TV's. Lots of locals and hometown heroes hang out on the patio to hear music by local musicians and just enjoy the happening downtown energy.

State Street Grille has seen a rebirth as owner Shari Johnson, new manager
Joe Oneill, and Chef Maurice have teamed up to create one of the best
downtown sport bar and grill's in northern Michigan.

Come on down for a local brew on tap and a football game, or enjoy the music on the
patio while enjoying reasonably priced dining options.

Traditional upscale barfood, best onion rings, and burgers in town.
It's a great place for wedding parties and teams because the
outdoor patio is large enough to accommodate big groups.
