    Nice setting for a restaurant. Beautiful view. Friendly staff. Nice salad bar. Fresh and clean. Food is good, not great. They try for a unique menu, but fall slightly short. Ordered a medium rare Filet Mingon but got a medium. I stated I didn’t want it as it was overdone. They offered another one, but I didn’t want to try another, so they took it off my bill. Would definitely go back.

    We like to eat here monthly and the meal was the quality we’ve come to expect. I had the salmon with the mustard crust and my wife had the pasta. Everything was top notch. Look forward to our next visit!

    Went midweek in the evening and it was peaceful! Environment was wonderful. Staff was friendly and attentive. It’s attached to a place called The Compound where there’s a tavern, golf club, and brewery attached. Awesome place. Highly recommend for a date night for something delicious and relaxing.

    Went 2 nights in a row - wagyu sirloin the first - too rare for me and not a lot of flavor. Had the Mustard crusted salmon the second which was delish - highly recommend. Salad bar is nice and kept clean. Ordered a martini - it was warm, not chilled at all. My sister in law said the mushroom risotto was amazing.

    It was just 2 of us for a business dinner on a Tuesday — Sweetwater was very busy, yet our waitstaff was super personable and seemed to always know when to check in- We both enjoyed the delicious and tender ribeye steak on the pink salt block - WOWlicious !!

    My husband and I make it a date to go to Sweetwater Chophouse every other week. We just went on New Year's Eve and it was very nice. We asked for a specific waitress and that was done. If you are from out of town, it is worth the drive.
