A word from Downtown Kitchen
Welcome to the Downtown Kitchen. We have one goal in mind when we open our doors every day - "To do whatever it takes to create the best dining experience possible.' That means buying certified Angus beef, Ashley Farms chicken, New Zealand Spring lamb, dayboat fish and fresh local produce. We change our menus daily according to market and season availability. Our style of cooking is defined as simplicity at its best. We built the restaurant to elevate the guests' level of comfort. The bar, tables, and booths were custom-made by a local wood worker. And we searched the nation for unique works of Art to deck our walls. Music of Blues and Rock greats fill the air. Service is as important as the food. Our staff is sincere, knowledgeable and friendly. They hustle to deliver the best service around, yet take the time to remember your name and how you like your drink.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "From the outside, this restaurant looks to be a small hole in the wall place. It has a great reputation in the area so we tried it on my birthday. Inside, it has the look of a friendly neighborhood tavern. The service was excellent, there was a good selection of craft beers, and the food was very good. We had a great time, and will definitely put in our rotation of restaurants in the Canton area."

  • "For a town like Canton, Ga. this is a gem! The steaks and lamb chops were outstanding. Everyone was friendly and service was good. The chef could be in a downtown Atlanta restaurant, the food was that good. Great sweet potato chips!"

  • "Trip Advisor reviews led us to the Downtown Kitchen, and we were favorably impressed! We enjoyed every bite from salad to dessert!"

  • "Prices, in my opinion were high for what you were served. Not the dramatic plating you would expect. Each course was very good however. Service was ok. Lots I would change, but overall a good experience."

  • "This was our 1st visit to the restaurant. We were celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary. What a wonderful dining experience from the service to the food to the music. My Chilean Sea Bass was moist, flaky and delectable. My husband's Delmonico was cooked to perfection, juicy and rare. The Parmesan Garlic Risotto was very tasty. We finished our meal off with the Mocha Cappuccino Cheesecake. The portion was large and absolutely delectable. Our server, Andrew, was attentive, pleasant and professional. He took great care of us. We'd rate it a 10+; and, we plan on returning for many more dining experiences."

  • "Sirloin w/ blue cheese, lobster tortellini w/ shrimp, & hanger steak were excellent, scallops good. Spinach nothing special. Food untimely & waitress not attentive in medium crowd. Ate downstairs, but prefer upstairs at the bar - better service. I prefer the other restaurant Goin' Coastal down the street for the $200 it cost us. Had to ask for the bread & dipping sauce, steaks came out, but scallops & lobster tortellini were brought out ten minutes later, spinach sides that came out next that went w/ lobster tortellini & scallops, baked potato came out a few minutes later that went with the sirloin and we had to ask for the mashed potatoes that went w/ the hangar steak. I've eaten here a lot & brought some friends, just very disappointed."

  • "Overall, this restaurant hits the mark. On the weekend evenings, you definitely need a reservation. The cocktails were really good and the food was outstanding. The service and dining experience is always consistent and yet, not predictable and mundane. One thing we always order are the sweet potato chips to have with our drinks. Our servers are always helpful in making suggestions on the menu."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed the restaurant and would recommend it. However; I had read several reviews that had given the Hanger steak good high ratings. So, I looked forward to trying it. And, it was very flavorful, but it was also very "chewy" with more than a little gristle. I am certain that if I had complained to the waiter, they would have done something to remedy my meal. However: I did not complain. I will eat there again if I am in Canton, and next time I will let them know if I am not pleased with my meal."

  • "Two of us ate at Downtown Kitchen in Canton at 6:30 on March 14, 2014 and were delighted with the meal. The bread and sundried tomato dip that is served upon sitting are great. The scallops and crabcakes were done to perfection with great sauces. Even the house salads were a fine assortment of greens, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, and dressing--much more than most "house salads." However, although we sat in a high-back booth, because of the noise, we found it difficult to hear each other as we tried to have conversation. It is busier and noisier than I like for a meal. (Our server, Mark was most attentive and patient with us in our requests, as we savored our drinks before ordering the main meal: he was outstanding.) Still, I will go again."

  • "Love the food and the wait staff has always been attentive. I know the noise level can be high but on this night it was deafening and we were in a far corner table. It was hard th have a conversation. Still love it but my ears are still ringing from the noise"

  • "We are new to the Canton area and had been told that Downtown Kitchen was a must for dinner. We decided to have "datenight" there on a Saturday so we could also enjoy the music. While the menu is rather limited, the food is absolutely wonderful! I enjoyed the hanger steak with Caesar salad, and asparagus. I honestly can't remember ever having a steak that even came close to the taste and quality of this one! My husband enjoyed the "special" Cowboy steak, and his opinion of his dinner was the same as mine. We will definitely be back! What a great little restaurant, and so very close to home!!!!"

  • "I have enjoyed dining at The Downtown Kitchen at least twenty times and have always been more than pleased. I go to hear the "Local Legends" when they play there and love the classic rock they perform upstairs. It is so nice to be able to go to a bar with class and be able to get exceptional food rather than "bar food". The service staff is great and the menu is fabulous! We have dined in the main restaurant on the first floor and have enjoyed the atmosphere during a family meal or a date night. The Downtown Kitchen is always sure to please!"

  • "An absolute gem!! Superb service, Some of the best Calamari we've ever had,, done to a turn. And, enough brought to the table to feed four or have as an entree. Hangar Steak done perfectly; table mate ordered it well done which is a no-no. However, the server questioned whether or not that is what was wanted."

  • "This place is missing the touches that make a nice restaurant, nice. The food is way over priced for what they offer. Won't be back."

  • "My Wife and I have been to DK many times, and always enjoy ourselves. On our last visit, however, we had quite possibly the best server I've ever had. Cindy was perfect! Timely, Knowledgable, prompt, courteous and extremely friendly. I've never had a server that was so good I want to ask to be sat in their section again...until now. Our favorite Canton Restaurant now also had our favorite server too! Thanks Cindy. Of course, the food was outstanding as usual. Keep it up DK!"

  • "Great food. Unfortunately for the price it's just a bit noisy. It's so open that the sound just echoes. My wife and I had a hard time hearing each other and we were just sitting on the opposite sides of the table."

  • "The restaurant is very noisy. I had a hard time talking with my wife. The food was mediocre. Green beans were bland. Entrees were just ok. Chocolate cake was nothing special. It was my 60th birthday dinner and was a disappointment. I have eaten lunch here several time and dinner a few but Monday night was disappointing. Probably won't be back."
    Dined on 1/20/2014
  • "From the moment we entered, we were treated like royalty. We'd reserved a table 20 minutes before arriving. Given a nice more private booth. Everyone from the bartender to our waitress acted like they were so happy we came to check them out. The food was fabulous and the service was superb. Also, anyone who enjoys the blues would love the decor and enjoy the bands that play live on Saturday nights. A fun time all around."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Perfect location, great staff, both service and food. Food was excellent in tast and preparation. The restaurant is in a 3 story brick building built in the 1880's most likely. The interior walls are brick. It has the ambience of a downtown Atlanta or Nashville location."

We experienced a wonderful, delicious, well priced meal! We will be back again and encourage everyone to do the same."

  • "We went on New Years Eve. The service was great and food was terrific. I did think it was a little over priced for what you got. I had two scallops to go with my steak and they were small for sea scallops with a price of $10. However, the food was delicious with a nice presentation. The venue was nice and I would recommend it to friends."
