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.

    The hanger steak is the specialty and it does not disappoint. The fried chicken was also very good. I can't wait to go back and try something else. The hanger steak won tons looked great.

    I selected this restaurant from the opentable website for a first date. As it turns out, this was the perfect spot! The vibe was cool but not pretentious, the waitstaff friendly and knowledgeable and the food excellent. I really liked the fact that the menu had a nice variety of tasty looking items, making my decision quite difficult. We opted for a couple of appetizers to share, and were quite pleased. We also ordered one of the specials for our entrees, and it was delicious. I was also quite pleased that they offered corkage, so I was able to bring a nice bottle of wine from my cellar that I knew my date would like. Importantly, the waitstaff were responsive, but not intrusive, and the date went so well, we are now on date #3!

    The food was excellent, but a bit pricey. We've eaten here before and everyone in the party agreed that it really seemed like the prices went up a level. Now, it is aligned with downtown locations like Bones or Chops in cost for a nice meal. Still love the food and the fact that it isn't located downtown, but will end up reserving dining to special occasions due to the cost.

    The meals were prepared for a party of six. Every single dish was prepared to perfection, not one person would have had their dish any differently. All of the entree's came out together and every bit of food was served at a perfect temperature. The appetizer was excellent as well. Our server was attentive and impressive. This was my first visit and the restaurant is easily on my list of of top 3 all time favorite restaurant experiences, and I travel a lot and see and experience quite a bit. Well done everyone! By the way, it was my daughters 26th birthday and it was the perfect way of celebrating!

    I had the andouille pork loin and collard greens. I thought the entree was very good. My collards had a bite or two with grit in them where they might no have been rinsed that well before cooking, but other than that the meal was good. Mike, our server, did a good job. I thought the ranch that came with the house salad was a little mayonnaise-ish. My financee had the hanger steak and I tried a bite of that and thought it was very good. I will be trying a steak next time. Red sauce that came with the bread was great. The staff was very good and we had good service. I would take out of town visitors here without hesitation. I believe whoever owns this restaurant also owns Going Coastal. We've been there once before and enjoyed that too.

    I really would rate this 5 stars but nothing is perfect, right? I have been searching for a good quality restaurant with REAL food! I was hoping to see wild caught salmon and the like, but it was farm raised so I chose the veal diane which was amazing! My husband got the famous (all of our friends rave about it!) fried chicken and we both loved it. The calamari was perfect (5 starts all the way!) and the IPA's on tap were the icing on the cake. We will be back!

    I was in town from Ohio visiting my family in Woodstock. I wanted to take my mother to a nice restaurant for her birthday. My mom is a picky eater so finding a menu with stuff she would like can be difficult. Prior to making reservations, I saw that Downtown Kitchen had a mix of Southern cooking and steaks. I also saw that they had collard greens which is one of my mom's favorite side dishes. My mom ordered the mussels for an appetizer and again for her dinner entree because they were so good. She also go the collard greens as a side. Well the collard greens were disappointing. They were not properly washed and you could immediately get a mouthful of grit from dirt with each bite. That was disappointing but everything else was okay.

    Downtown Kitchen is our go-to place for a special dinner in Canton. The staff is more like family than service providers and we can always trust the food to be good. Plenty of choices for adult beverages and the wine list is always complete with choices for all tastes. The desserts are always anticipated because they are made by one of the servers and they change frequently. There is always something tempting to finish off a great evening.

    As my husband and I were having our first "date night" in awhile, I wanting to choose something special...and this place was it! I requested a "quaint" table, and they accommodated us with a nice corner booth. (The hostess even acknowledged that she was "waiting for us" to arrive.) Service was friendly, knowledgeable and an absolute delight. We wanted to try so many appetizers that our server recommended 1/2 portions on a couple - what a great suggestion! We tried three! For dinner, we tried the specials - bone-in pork chop and venison. DELICIOUS! For dessert, the peanut butter pie - yum!! And as an extra bonus, dress is casual - so dress up or down, whatever makes you comfortable.

    We have eaten here a number of times and the food has been excellent each time. There are few restaurants I can say this about. My filet was ordered rare and my wife ordered her hanger steak medium rare and both were cooked correctly. Baked potatoes were great! and the three vegetables we tried were also great. Entertainment is available on the second floor on weekend nights and it runs the gamut from soft to hard rock. Don't miss this restaurant.

    Food was ok, pricey for what you get. Our waitress was great. It was very hot in the restaurant & smokey from the kitchen- our eyes were burning. It's an open kitchen concept but their HVAC & kitchen equipment is obviously not equipped for handling the heat & smoke from kitchen. It was pretty uncomfortable.

    We enjoyed our visit dinner there last night. The food and service were outstanding. The menu is varied with additional specials. We enjoyed two of the specials, Amberjack and Filet with green chili sauce. There were both excellent. We especially enjoyed the deep fried ribs appetizer. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food and service. We were offered the option seating downstairs for the lively atmosphere or upstairs for a quieter evening. We sat upstairs. Even though we sat (by choice) close to the bar, we enjoyed our table. We are looking forward to our next dinner.

    The food was great - some items a bit pricey, but enough items on the menu to avoid them. The service is good and small town friendly, which I love. I have eaten here before with the same dining experience, but this was the first time I've gone on Saturday night. Upstairs, they have a (good) band on Saturday night and a small dance floor.... and the same "neighborhood friendliness". It's almost like going to a party in the neighborhood, except you don't have to bring anything :-)
