1. We ordered Fried Chicken as one of our main courses. We specified Dark Meat ONLY. The waiter brought us the regular order which included 2 pieces of White Meat. He offered to replace those two, but we had already finished eating when someone else finally brought the other 2 pieces of Dark Meat, which we took home.
2. The same waiter (above) appeared to have numerous problems with other orders near us.
3. The person who took our credit card did not know how to use a credit card with a chip that requires a PIN number. We had to show that person how to do it!
4. The tomato bisque, fried chicken livers and gumbo were all excellent.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this great restaurant only a few minutes drive from Lomitas Heights. The service was good and the menu varied with a big nod to the South. They have a full bar and know how to craft a good cocktail.

We always look forward to our dining experience at Sweet "T"s. It has never disappointed but this time things were not up to par. Our server brought me my black coffee, and there coffee is outstanding, with the saucer full of spilled coffee and didn't seem to be interested in giving me a napkin or bringing a new saucer. We always look forward to the fried okra and but this is the second time in 10 days that I have requested it and they don't have it and don't tell you until AFTER you order the item. Their fried okra is so authentic and to still not have it after 10 days with no explanation as to why or when it will return is a real loss to our dining experience. We are bringing friends once again tomorrow and are hopeful that the service is up to their usual standards and perhaps the fried okra will be available.

Good choice for BBQ and southern dishes. The gumbo is good and spicy. Their cobb salad is one of the best salads out I've had. Brisket and ribs are good. Their nachos are a tasty change of pace. Fried chicken is pretty good although lacking enough spices for my taste. After having fried chicken in the south, nothing out here compares. Great location and love the patio seating.

From the time you enter the Hostess makes you feel welcome and the excellent journey begins. The waitstaff is efficient, friendly and professional and so enthusiastic to please. Then comes the delightful food and you can always have a scrumptious dessert and great coffee. All the elements for making a wonderful experience in dining.

The menu has interesting items that you won't see elsewhere due to the Southern U.S. theme, and we all enjoyed what we got for the most part. The creamed corn, blackened catfish, and sweet potato hash are great. I wish they served a bit of honey with the biscuit instead of just butter. Our one problem was that the waitress was too busy to see our attempts to flag her for a take-out box at the end and we had to call over someone else.

This is delicious. Go hungry. Portions standard, and could be a bit more plentiful...bugged by the new $2 overcharge for all white meat when you order fried chicken. What difference does it make??? The customer should be able to get what they want for the price advertised -

We went because I had heard that the fried chicken was the best around and it didn't disappoint. Three of us had the fried chicken and the fourth person had the catfish. We were all in food heaven.
My husband even had my leftover fried chicken for lunch the next day and was still thrilled with it cold and a day old.
Portions are large and well worth the money.
Service was excellant.

We've been to Sweet T's at least a dozen times. We've brought friends and family. It has been one of our "go to" restaurants. We have always loved the place... until this visit.
We usually sit in one of the booths next to the kitchen and have always had outstanding service. This time we sat next to the far wall at a table. It took almost half an hour before our order was taken. This was not during rush, it was only 3:30 and the restaurant was only half full (even though we could only get our 3:30 reservation or one at 7:45). The service was so slow that we played cards while waiting for our meals. I have to say though, that the busboy service was excellent. My water glass was never completely empty.
When my smoked chicken salad arrived I was disappointed. This is one of my usual orders but this time is was about 2/3 to 1/2 the size it used to be. There was very little chicken and surprisingly very, very little lettuce. It had lots and lots of bacon and that is not a plus for me.
When my children finished their cherry? lemonades we asked for refills. We were told that we have to pay for refills. I asked when that change was made and we were told that it has always been their policy. In all the previous times that we have been to Sweet T's we have never had to pay for refills.
So it's unfortunate that we now pay the same prices for less food. Sweet T's was never inexpensive, but for what you got it was worth it. The decrease in portion size coupled with the terrible service was a great disappointment. I'm sad to say that Sweet T's will no longer be one of our "go to" restaurants.

We had a heat wave in NOCAL and the place was really too warm for the crowd. Chicken livers were terrible fried in old grease. Wasn't the way to start out our night with that appetizer. Excellent BBQ and hefty portions. Southern comfort food that was very good.

A hidden gem in Santa Rosa. We were looking for a place for a quick bite before a concert and my wife found Sweet T's from a Google search.
The food style I would consider Southern comfort and we were pleasantly surprised. All the items we ordered were fresh and delicious.

Food was very good, especially the fried chicken - which was perfect. It took a bit too long to get served, but it was a very busy night, and I know that really good fried chicken takes awhile to prepare and cook. I would definitely eat there again.

As usual a wonderful evening out which included by daughter and her 3 little ones.
We were seated at a large booth.( perfect for little ones to be trapped and no chance to run around)... the service and food was friendly and delicious . Everyone was saying the day after what a great place Sweet T's is!
We had a variety of items on the menu ... too many to list. ( My granddaughter loved the ribs... my daughter then smoked pork plate)
You can't go wrong with any of the menu .
If you have not been to Sweet T's you are missing out.

I love the food here. I had a reservation, took 25 minutes to be seated. Ordered 3 salads and an appetizer. The app came out timely. Watched everyone who was seated after us get there food, after an hour the waitress apologized for being slammed she said there are still 2 orders before ours. It took an hour and 20 minutes to get 3 salads!!! I was in the restaurant a over 2 hours.
