    I am new to Defiance and have eaten at the Sweetwater Chop House twice, and plan to go back again - multiple times! Love the setting, excellent service, great food (large portions), and although 20% higher prices than your typical chain restaurants, it's well worth it for something nicer and different for a change!

    Went there for dinner and was not disappointed. Not only was the food delicious but our waitress was so wonderful. I mentioned not wanting anything spicy and she made sure they didn’t put the pepper wasn’t put on the green beans like it normally would be prepared. Definitely will be going again!

    Sweetwater Chophouse is the best place to eat in Defiance, Ohio. The "Gatsby" decor is beautiful and the service is excellent. It is a bit warm in the summer months. I like how the menu is changed frequently and produce is supplied locally mostly.

    Waitress was pleasant and very engaging. Sald bar was very nice, and caesar salad was great. Wife and daughter had the bourbon chicken. Has been their go-to at Sweetwater. Crunchy Brussels sprouts and asparagus were both wonderful. I had the bbq ribs and they were good flavor, could have been a bit more tender.

    Mandy was our waitress, she was outstanding as well as our food. We were surprised that the price of beer was very reasonable compared to some other places that we have been to in the past month. And between the reasonable price of beer and the great service and food. We will be back!
