Wendi and I headed to the Canton area for the day. We wanted to take a tour of the Harry London Chocolate factory, visit the National First Ladies Museum and get a bite to eat at someplace that was not a chain and something different than what we can get in Wooster. We discovered Table 6 Kitchen + Bar.
We learned about the restaurant from the Visit Canton website. While we live in Wooster, it is not like we are totally unfamiliar with Canton-area establishments. I thought Table 6 must have been a new restaurant. I never heard a word about the place. I was surprised to learn it has been around since 2013.
We popped in around 11:15 a.m. for an early lunch, figuring we would tackle the other two items on our agenda later (we only made it to the chocolate factory). We were one of the first ones there. When we walked inside, I was struck by how spacious the restaurant and bar was. When I worked for Valle’s Steak House in Daytona Beach, Fla., in the 1980s, we easily sat 900 people on both sides of the house (one side was all booths, the other all tables). But the trend since the ’80s has been to build smaller eateries.
The bar area was quite spacious, too, but because we don’t drink, it really wasn’t a space that caught our attention.
Our waitress was Brittany, and she was extremely friendly and attentive. She took some time to tell us about the place and the menu. She recommended the chicken and waffles, which is their specialty. We started our lunch off with Lobster Mac + Cheese for Wendi, and Brothers Fried Pickles for me. Wendi described her dish as cheesy (not dry), and the lobster was good. She would have liked a little more lobster meat in the dish, but she still enjoyed it.
The Brothers Fried Pickles were of the chip variety and not the spear variety. The menu said it came with a horsey aioli, but all I could taste was lemon. I ordered a side of ranch dressing to go with the pickles, and I preferred it. I am not a seafood eater, so I didn’t try the mac and cheese, but Wendi and I both took home half of our appetizers.
I never really ate chicken and waffles together (I did order them at IHOP once and ate them separately). When the order was served, I asked Brittany if I eat them together, and she instructed me to pour the Bourbon-maple syrup all over it and eat it. The meal came with four large sections of boneless chicken breast, and the waffle was creamy inside. All of the waffles I have had tended to just be crispy and dry throughout. Not this one. It was creamy in the middle, and it reminded me a little of Yorkshire pudding. This was pretty good. Wendi appreciated the chicken was flavorful and moist. She also said eating the two together was interesting. We each ate one section and took half of the meal home with us.
Wendi and I also shared the Buckeye Burger, which came with cheddar cheese, bacon, fried onion straws and sriracha ketchup (which we had them put on the side). The burger was extremely tasty and juicy. (I like City Square Steakhouse’s burgers in Wooster a little better, but this was really close.) We ate all of it, and I really enjoyed the fresh-cut fries. I liked them a little better than Wendi because they were fried crispy.
Overall, Wendi and I had a great time at Table 6 Kitchen + Bar. We would definitely make a special trip to Canton just to eat at the restaurant.
