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.

Game options every week are worth the all by themselves. This is a cool gem tucked away in Cantin Ga.

We have eaten at DTK many times and thoroughly enjoy it. This time around it was a little disappointing. I had the short ribs for the first time and they were a little on the chewy/fatty side. One of us had the New York Strip which was sent back because it wasn’t hot. Even when it came back it wasn’t very hot and a little on the chewy side. The root vegetables had an excellent flavor but were also not hot.

Can’t remember the soup special but it was excellent. Love the upstairs seating but I think everything is cooked downstairs and likely the reason the food wasn’t very hot.

Would I go back? Yes but I wouldn’t have the short ribs.

This is my second time to this restaurant. I really enjoyed my food. But it was pretty noisy. The first time we came, we sat upstairs. This time we were down and it seemed so much louder. I feel I may be more sensitive to the noise since I have a hearing issue. I felt left out of the conversation at our table. Next time I will request upstairs. Very nice wait staff. Beautiful food presentation, and it was delish! We will be back! Nice job!

Been to DTK many times and first time upstairs. Loved it. A lot quieter than downstairs. Food was good as usual but had to send the Appetizer (Calamari) back. It was as tough and stringy as can be. Server offered to replace it but I couldn’t imagine why a new batch would be better. Disappointing that it was our second choice. They were out of Oysters.

All that said, DTK is one of our two favorite restaurants in downtown Canton.

I used to love this place! Our Christmas Eve meal was not great. Service was slow. My fiancé and his father said they could have gotten a better steak at Texas rd house.

The restaurant has to levels . There is an upstairs and a downstairs. The upstairs is not attached or has access to the downstairs so if you make reservations do not let them put you upstairs. Your food is brought uncovered out side dramatically reducing the temperature of your food. It was very cold the night we went. After using the rest room, the passthru stairs is by the restroom.

This was not my first encounter with this restaurant but will likely be my last for quite a while. Not the same outstanding quality as previous. OUR WAITER THIS VISIT (SHANE) WAS EXCELLENT, PLEASANT, HAPPY AND VERY ACCOMMODATING. Shane was the best part of our experience. Food was only so-so, noise level was excruciating. My reservation request included preference for quite table but that in an impossible task for staff to comply as the joint is tiny and the walls/ barriers only exacerbate the noise. Acoustic mufflers are non existent. Having a pleasant dining experience on previous visits encouraged our repeat visit this past weekend but management has recreated the experience so that now I will take my business to local fast food places for more pleasant environment, equal or better food and significant reduction in cost. Best advice I can offer is : "CAVEAT EMPTOR"

We had a party of 6 on a Saturday evening. We had two appetizers, 5 different entrees, salads, some wine, mixed drinks and desserts. It was all wonderful! I had the shrimp pasta and it was excellent. I had some left and ate it the following evening-still excellent! Our waitress was friendly and up beat. The food came out at the right times. Overall a great experience. We look forward to visiting again.

My review is way over due! We have been eating at Downtown Kitchen every week for year. Chief Jason has produced meal after meal that would rock the likes of New York, London, Paris, and even Las Vegas. The Downtown Kitchen was a "Stumble upon". We were driving the back roads back to Marietta and the name caught my attention. I honestly thought i was going to get some good fried chicken and corn bread. My taste buds EXPLODED with the Elk steak i devoured. This tucked away gem in a small town an hour north of Atlanta is one of the many surprises Georgia has to offer. If you live in town, this is worth the drive, the weekly "Game" special alone is worth the drive. If you are fortunate enough to sit in Chole section, your dining experience as just been elevated. Chief Jason, his talent and food is more then your palate can understand. Chief Jason and his staff are on a culinary adventure that every man, woman, and child should venture into!!!

Track lights were bright and blinding and right at my eye level. Waitress did turn them down but then it was almost so dark you couldn’t read menu easily.
Food was VERY TASTY and service was great!??

Vegetable options were not good. Should always off a simpler option like broccolli or corn or green beans. Alot of people do not like kale, rutabaga, or odd mixea like you are currently offering.

A little pricey.

Been to downtown Kitchen several times and was very dissatisfied this time as my NY Strip was cold and the server said they would get the steak warmed up once you cook a steak to temp you can’t heat it up. I should have been offered a new steak instead of heating it up. After warming it up it still was not Hot. My family was almost done eating at that point I didn’t want to wait for a new one.

Service was prompt and friendly, great selection of beverages. Atmosphere was such that you can have a conversation and not have to shout, so not too noisy. Food was good, but the mashed potatoes were served cold.
