    We LOVE Sweetwater! Great for Sunday lunch, a work party, getting together with friends - you name it, it's perfect for it! Their soup and salad bar is always top notch and fairly reasonable in price.

    Tomahawk steak was amazing, do not recommend getting the risotto. It was hard and salty. We went when there was barely anyone there, but still not able to accommodate a booth for our reservation.

    Today we drove almost an hour to try this restaurant. We arrived a little early and it was very busy so we had a drink while we waited. One drink was ok and the other was terrible. Tonic was flat if it was even tonic. After we were seated the waitress came and was so distracted she never looked at us while took our order. She told me to remind her because we wanted a meal to go. I didn’t waste my because the food that came out first was not worth waiting on. The Porkchop was ok but the potatoes and vegetables were hard. The short rib was cold and mostly fat. We will likely not try this place again.

    What a hidden gem. My coworkers and I were in town from Chicago to meet with a customer of ours and we got a recommendation from the hotel front desk. Everything was great from the salads, dinner and the deserts. The braised short rib dish is simply amazing as well as the chocolate cake. Wonderful place you have here. I will be back...

    This is the GO TO whenever my sister comes to town. She follows a strict gluten free diet. This is the first restaurant she’s walked out of absolutely FULL! The GF choices are fantastic and extensive. The rest of the menu is equally amazing. Grateful to be able to share a fabulous meal in beautiful location so close to home.

    We've been to this restaurant several times and the food & service is always excellent. This time they seated us in a different part of the dining room on the other side of the salad bar- to the right as you enter the dining room. Ambiance was much nicer. It was quiet and we were able to have a conversation in normal volumes.

    The servers were appropriately attentive and timely. The drinks were perfect. The appetizers were delicious! My husband had the peanut butter chocolate cheesecake and it was divine, I had the heart cake and it was blah but very pretty. The main dishes sucked. Mine tasted like Spaghettios.
