We have never had s bad meal here. Homemade rolls with every meal. Great bar selection. The grilled tuna salad has ginger and just the right mixture of greens and a light dressing. The drunken ribeye will feed 2 easily and is delicious. Call ahead for seating or you will have to wait.

Rolled into town for a flight the following morning; went to Sweetwater due to reviews and saw it for what it was, a step-up-from-Friday's theme chain restaurant. Which is not to bash the format, it's the consistency that keeps people coming back to similar places like Cheesecake Factory and Bonefish Grill locally and while out of town. Such is the... More

Local retailer suggest we try Sweetwater for a late lunch. Nice, authentic SW decor. Spacious with lots of booths. Good crowd for 2:30 pm. Great fall off the bone ribs and true Cajun flavored pasta dish. The service was beyond compare, so if you're in the area I highly recommend.

I have never had a bad meal at Sweetwater. The crab cakes are fantastic as are the ribs. It is a busy place, so do not be surprised if you need to wait for a table. But the wait is worth it.

We eat about three times a month. Have never had a bad meal! Excellent food, wonderful home brewed beers and outstanding professional service - always! Sweetwater is one of our family's "go to" restaurants.

We visited Sweetwater Tavern yesterday since it was close to the movie theater. We were there for lunch, and had read the reviews which were good. It didn't dissapoint. My husband and I each had one of their beers...delicious. I particularly lived mine, which was a brown ale. We ordered the crab ball appetizer. It was good...the sauce kind of... More

We love Sweetwaters!! My favorites are the crab fritters and the egg rolls for an appetizer. I love the roasted chicken salad and the salmon salad. For desser, the flourless brownie is wonderful. Everything is good. It's not gourmet, but it's good! Great for families and couples. Dress is casual. Expect a wait on the weekend. You can and should... More

Went for a delicious lunch and Sweetwater delivered again. This place has great food, and great parking. They have something for everyone - burgers, fish, chicken, and vegetarian. A must do if in the area!
