What a fun restaurant to randomly find while in town. We found the tables to be a bit tight as they are trying to fit as many people in as possible. Music was loud for a Saturday at 3pm. But this is our personal opinions and this does not impact our overall review and experience. The price of our meals were reasonable and the menu selection was wonderful with many choices. I had the cobb salad and my request for dressing to be on the side was accommodated. Delicious! My boyfriend had the pulled pork which we found to be a bit dry but rather tasty despite. Our waitress was prompt and friendly. Washrooms were clean and maintained. We are not in Brantford often but we will recommend this restaurant to anyone who will be heading out that way.

Food came and was cold. French fries were still potatoes but it was rectified with courtesy. Homemade ketchup was not my taste but many seemed to be enjoying it.

Thank you for visiting SKT and for taking the time to review your most recent visit. It sounds like we definitely missed the mark during your last visit. Please understand that we do pride ourselves on these three qualities of our great restaurant and assure you we will pass along your notes to the appropriate team members.

That being said I would like to personally invite you back to our establishment. If given the chance, I believe we could make your next experience a home-run.

I have eaten all over the world and this was the absolute best dining experience I have ever had with my family. Right from the very beginning, we were treated to a beautiful and delightful atmosphere. The entertainment (Saxation for Mother's Day) was phenomenal to listen to, our waitress Alora was an absolute sweetheart who offered incredible service with a smile, laugh, and familial feeling, and the food... it really was obvious that the chef was well trained and loves what he does. Even the runners were so amazing and accommodating. The management, Mark, was really nice and clearly took pride in his work. Even though I live five hours away, I will definitely be going back. Highly recommend it!!!

Food is always great and a good variety. The beer selection is excellent - lots of selection and the waitresses are very knowledgeable - one of my favourite spots in Brantford!!

We stopped in for the first time Sunday night about 6:45pm for dinner, family of 3. We were seated at a small bartop table for dinner on the bar side, it wasn't busy but this is where they chose to seat us(a booth or regular table would make sense). We thought okay lets try it.
The food came out quickly and was quite good, we enjoyed our meals, portions for the fish tacos were small but tasty'fries were cold. My lady had the lettuce wraps, tasty, very messy.Why aren't the lettuce leaves separated to make it easier to eat? I had the pretzel charcuterie board, I enjoyed it.
So here is what was not right:
3 people at a small bar top table with the plates/boards the food is served on > they don't fit the table with drink glasses, condiments etc. everything is crammed together< terrible seating choice for 2 adults and a teen.
Our waitress (on a slow sunday) nowhere to be found, the lettuce wraps are messy and we had to find another waitress to get napkins for us. Did not see her during our dinner, only offered a water refill after the meals were done. really inattentive service. BUT very quick with the bill oddly.
The bathroom garbage was overflowing with paper towels, one of the soap dispensers was empty AND it wasn't busy!!
Our takeaway was we enjoyed the meals but the staff seemed preoccupied or distant for lack of a better word.
Don't seat families for dinner at bar top tables when regular tables are available and even when it is slow service your tables. No excuse for poor service, possibly it's just a Sunday thing or something.
Because many like us, won't complain OR come back.
