State Park pairs dive bar chic (think: wood paneling, neon beer signs and a taxidermied animal or two) with varied American fare. The combination is a perfect fit for Kendall Square diners looking for a great meal without a lot of fanfare or formality.
Named for the Hungry Mother State Park in Marion, Virginia, State Park specializes in food, drink, and amusements – and there are plenty of each. The wide ranging menu includes a pork chop sandwich, charred broccoli, beef shoulder and crispy skin-on hake; there are cocktails by the pitcher, domestic and imported beers galore and a whole Shot & a Beer section of the drink list; and pinball, pool and shuffleboard keep guests entertained throughout the afternoon and into the wee hours.
