Diner Reviews
  • "Great food but unfortunately the service is kinda slow."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "Four of us dined on the patio. Nice setting, but we didn't appreciate the BBQ smoke wafting over us repeatedly. One diner enjoyed his pulled pork. The others felt their chicken and gumbo were adequate. Great BBQ sauce with the chicken. Side dishes of slaw (bland) and grits (tasted like processed cheese on top) didn't rate. Server was prompt and helpful. Server should have pointed out that the bottle of 2011 pinot noir we ordered was a 2012 before we noticed it."

  • "Great southern style cooking/food. Accoustics are poor, especially if you are seated next to a large boisterous croud."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We enjoyed appetizers that included salmon patties with a remoulade (sauce) that was heavenly, hush puppies, fried brussel sprouts, and fried green tomatoes. Our entrees were just as wonderful: brisket, salmon, ribs and fried chicken. Everything was hot and delicious. Our server was friendly and attentive as well. Kudos to April. I would recommend this restaurant nestled in the Santa Rosa hills. It is really up there. Enjoy"

  • "My wife and I took our daughter here for a late lunch on her Birthday. Cheerful, friendly service, interesting menu. Would return, would recommend."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Loved the food! The fried green tomatoes were perfectly cooked and the breading wasn't greasy or heavy. The hush puppies were crispy on the outside and p soft and light on the inside. It was a nice place to go for a date night. Big portions that we ended up taking home for late night snacking. We'll be back!"

  • "Need to have room for more comments. Good food, good service mostly, and great location for us"

  • "Great restaurant, I had the fried chicken with garlic mashed potatoes. My husband had smoked ribs. Service and god was very good. It is noisy."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Brought some friends from work here for their first time. Those of us who have been here before were hyping it to the point we made ourselves hungry. My personal favorite is the Fried Chicken Dinner. Chicken is cooked to perfection and also comes w/mashed potatoes & a delicious biscuit. Mud Pie was last and was shared by all due to the fact we were stuffed but wanted dessert. Everything sooo deelish and the service was outstanding! We'll be back!!"

  • "The food was presented so beautifully and tasted as good as it looked. The service was excellent."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "I took 2 very prominat people in Sonoma county for sweet t s. They both are used to very high end restaurants and fine dining. The noise level was horrendous. Our server was a shorter woman with white hair. Rather than being eloquent when at the table she spoke with a southern accent some of the time and was very high pitched. Everything she offered additionally she told us the price "want sweet tea 2 bucks more." A little degrading and tacky. Food was amazing and saved the night. When paying our server disappeared with our check for 20 minutes. I watched the clock. That was very frustrating. In the end I would go back because of the food. My guests said they would not return though the food was great."

  • "We eat here fairly often and LOVE the chow... this time service was a bit disorganized altho our server was very sweet... just slower than usual. The host staff was disorganized when we first arrived and a bit overwhelmed. But it is a great place to eat and we will go back--- it was probably just a one off as they say!"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "All 4 of us had something different -- it was all delicious. The servings for large & we all had doggie bags. We had a very attentive waitress."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "I brought a "surprise" birthday cake for 2 people. Their names clearly written on the cake!! I purchased the cake fee before lunch for $10. When we were all waiting to order, I happened to glance over to another table and there was the server who took my $$ for the cake fee lighting the candles on my cake at another table!! I rushed over and after excusing myself 3 times she finally acknowledged me and I told her that was my cake!! No refund was offered on the cake chg. until I went and asked. Our party of six then waited an hour and 10 minutes for our lunch which consisted of 6 salads!!! This isn't the first time I've been ther where the food wait was over 49 minutes, with no "I'm sorry" from the wait staff!! Won't probably go back!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The smoked food is the absolute best we have ever had, they take great care to give you a great meal. We have had just about everything on the menu and everything is outstanding, you can't make a wrong choice."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Was my first visit to this restaurant and it was rather enjoyable. We were sat right away. Will return next time I'm in the area."

  • "Excellent place to eat and had a lot of fun going as a group."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "The service was just okay. They got our drink order wrong. The hostess was rude to me when I told them the last time I was there they did mark down they I showed up for my reservation."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Very nice restaurant & the food is consistently delicious - everything! The atmosphere is relaxing & staff is friendly. It was a fun experience."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Some of the best BBQ in the area. As a side the Mac n Cheese needs some attention. The Fried Okra is a good substitute!"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We have be going to Sweet T for a couple years and find the food consistently well-prepared. Their fried chicken is awesome! We usually order the deviled eggs for an appetizer which are excellent. My husband had the pulled chicken sandwich and said it was on on par with Rutherford Grill which is one of our favorite places in the Napa area. The staff is well trained and attentive. Definitely give this place a try when you want a delicious lunch."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Sweet T's offers southern inspired comfort food that's good but not great. Overall, however, it's a nice place to go with a family."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We were visiting Santa Rosa and were looking for a place to get dinner during our stay with a reservation. The people at the restaurant were very friendly. I would recommend the pulled pork nachos (probably the best thing we had that night!)"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Sweet T's is a great find. Up scale dining feel without the upscale price. Nice outside seating area. Inside is modern with an intimate feel. For starters we ordered fried okra and hush puppies. The okra was great, puppies OK. (more spice for me). I ordered the fried chicken. The chicken was perfect, juicy inside/crispy outside, lots of little "crunchies" (more spice for me). The menu had a great selection, burger, large dinner salads, Spicy shrimp plater were also ordered off the menu. The staff was on top of everything. They were friendly, professional, and very knowledgable about the menu items."

  • "For being a 4:15 reservation it was very slow service."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We tried Sweet T's for a family birthday and had a memorable time. This is a place to enjoy real Southern cuisine at its finest with a touch of class. We had gumbo, fried chicken, smoked chicken platter, brisket platter, collard greens, mac & cheese (delicious!), mashed potatoes. Only comment was that the fried chicken was a bit dry. We were there on a Friday night, very busy and very loud. I think the restaurant needs to address its acoustics because we could not have a conversation without yelling. Next time, we will sit outside on the patio. The desserts are to die for, especially the key lime pie. Prices are reasonable and portions are generous. The waitress was exceptional, stellar service, very sweet. Truly a Santa Rosa gem."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Sweet T's is our new go-to favorite in Sonoma County. Menu is consistently good with a variety of choices and prepared with fresh ingredients. Every dish we've tried has been fantastic!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Had a fantastic lunch here last week including their version of nachos- a strange mix but delicious to the taste buds, I recommend getting the pulled pork added. We also tried the fried chicken & waffles, potato salad, fried okra, chicken livers, sweet potato fries, etc and each was tasty and abundant. We highly suggest trying this place if you've got a hankering for some Southern homestyle cooking that's cruelty-free and ethically sourced."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We had the brisket plate with cheese grits and sweet potato hash; pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw; home-made biscuits, fried okra, and hush puppies to start. The brisket is not overly smokey, the pork has substantial bark, and the sides were all amazing. We got all our food and a couple drinks for $70-75 (2 ppl), which was a pleasant surprise. Service seemed good overall at Sweet-T's, however our sever that night was a little quarky and not a great fit for me. All in all, I would recommend this restaurant to my friends and family."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "I checked reviews for this place and then checked their menu. It was our 31st anniversary and I wanted to go locally to a place that had the type of food I love. This place had it all. Wasn't fancy but was more upgrade than most places. I had the combination plate and my husband had the chicken. We enjoyed our dinners. The service was great and the lady that served us was very friendly. I would recommend this restaurant and go back."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We had a very nice dinner at Sweet T's. The service was quite slow and our server was aloof and pretty much absent. That didn't bother us much because the food came promptly and we didn't care about replenishing our water or drinks (but if we did care about that, we would have been annoyed). The food is excellent and exactly what you come to expect from Sweet T's: well made Southern food and plenty of it! Towards the end of our meal, a large and very noisy group was seated right next to us, at a table that was MUCH too small for them. It felt like they were sitting in our laps and shouting. We didn't have to put up with them for too long, but it was definitely the wrong place to put such a big and boisterous group."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The food is fantastic and the service is excellent. Have never been disappointed. This is one of the best restaurants in Santa Rosa!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had a reservation, but when we arrived, they told us they didn't have a table, so we could either cram into a table designed for fewer people, or wait for another table to finish dessert. We crammed in, and it was snug. It took us over 45 minutes to get our appetizers, and another 50 minutes before our food came out. VERY slow! But the food was excellent, our server was nice, and it gave us time to chat and catch up while we waited."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "I was in Santa Rosa for a school and happened to hear about Sweet T's from a fellow student. A group of us decided to eat dinner at Sweet T's and had a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic, the specialty drinks were excellent as was the service. I highly recommend this restaurant. You will not go wrong."

  • "First timers. We took our mom there to celebrate her birthday, EVERYTHING was fantastic!! Rib salad, hush puppies, mushroom sandwich, fried green tomatoes and sweet potatoe bread pudding with homemade whipped cream!!! Before we left, we were planning our next visit and meal. Go and enjoy a hidden treasure."

  • "My wife and I were celebrating her birthday. We had been to Sweet T's once before and looked forward to returning. Was not disappointed. Our server, Vicky, did a great job. Look forward tro going back again."
