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 girl scout cookie cheese cake was the best and the fried chicken was as always the favorite. The short ribs and salmon were very good.

Our first time here after hearing good things about this restaurant from friends. Wonderful experience. Food and service were excellent. Surf and turf special and hanger steak were great as well as dessert. Definitely will be returning.

I have never had one bite of food or sip of drink at Downtown Kitchen that was not absolutely scrumptious - I mean closing my eyes, and savoring-the-flavor kind of scrumptious. The wait staff and managers are top-notch, always friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and attentive. My husband, friends and I all love this restaurant. It is a special treat to be able to go there ourselves and always super-popular with out-of-town visitors.
My only criticism if I had to make one would be the noise level on busy nights is a a bit "energetic" but the food and service are so superb... who cares?

This was a great way to kick off our weekend——JR makes a stellar old fashioned, and the food was fresh and the flavor was spot on! DK offers reliable service and consistent quality. And the peanut butter pie finishes a meal perfectly!

Was not what we expected. Went there on a recommendation from a friend for a milestone birthday. Was expecting a level of service and quality of food found at Ruth’s Chris, Capital Grille and Fleming’s. Food was ok, nothing special and service was mediocre for the pricing of the menu. Would go back and try again for a more casual experience, but not for a “special occasion “.

I ordered a steak medium rare and it came back mooing. My girlfriend ordered it medium and it came back rare at best. Everything else was good.

We chose DK for Valentines Day dinner and so glad we did! My hangar steak was perfect and my husband’s fried chicken was delicious. Our server, Waylon, was attentive without being overbearing... we never felt rushed and had a very relaxing evening. We had not been to DK for quite a while but we will be back again soon.

Went for Valentine’s Day expecting a romantic dinner. Partially my fault since this was out first DK visit. I didn’t really expect it to be so loud & ‘70s arena rock isn’t the most romantic music. There was no acknowledgement that it was Valentine’s Day & it felt like any other nite. That said, the food & service was great. We’d probably come back but not for a special occasion.

My husband and I dined here on Valentine's Day night. Both of us got a caeser salad, a NY strip, and sides. We LOVED the caesers. Using the sunflower seeds for crunch is a great idea. Both of our steaks were very tasty, but had a lot of fat on them. I would guess that about 4 ounces of the 12 ounces was fat. This was not expected, especially since both had sauce. I got the cauliflower/spinach special and did not like it.. the cauliflower arrived in big chunks and was not cooked through well enough. My husband liked his seasoned fries. Service was good.

We had 6pm Rez. Seated promptly. Waiter was prompt and knowledgeable of days specials. Calamari was served promptly but a bit cold & soggy as if a large batch prepared earlier. Wife’s chicken entree was excellent, my lamb special was warm but edible. Cocktails were perfect, wine was perfect. Dessert was excellent. Very loud. Overall good experience.

My wife loves the mushroom ravioli and their fried chicken is superb. We shared a coconut creek pie for dessert that was also excellent. They have a nice local craft beer selection, too. Service is attentive but not intrusive. It is conveniently located in downtown Canton.

Food is always on point, and delicious. Staff is excellent, polite, and quick to help with anything you need. I do recommend hopping on open table to make a reservation, as it will have a wait if you just walk up on a Friday/Saturday night. Enjoy!

Very unique dishes, and the specials were just as amazing. Portions were a little on the small side, but then again, although we're on the small side, we're big eaters. 😁 Overall, kudo's.

It was our anniversary. We invited our daughter and son-in-law to join us. I told the restaurant it was our anniversary dinner prior. They didn’t do anything special.

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!
