    Our party thought the meat was tender & tasteful. The cost was a bit high for the quantity served - somehow larger portions for a bbq place are expected - but not on our visit.

    We had reservations and we were seated upon arrival. Our request for outside dining was accommodated. We both had the Saturday and Sunday special of fried chicken and waffle. The fried chicken and waffle was some of the best we have ever had. The chicken was tasty, moist, and tender with a terrific crunch. The waffle was tasty and went well with the chicken. Highly recommend.

    We love this place! It's around the corner from our house! How lucky are we? The smoked chicken in the Cobb Salad or in sandwiches is excellent! One of the best Cobb salads in the County! Roast chicken or fried - it's all very good. (We don't normally eat fried foods but this is special. Wonderful side dishes with nice veggie choices too. Very good desserts. Very friendly wait staff. A real neighborhood winner!

    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.

    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

    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!

    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!!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
