Food was decent. Buffalo chicken wrap was delicious. Service was terrible and they weren’t that busy. 4/10
Food was great and the service was amazing
Great food, drinks and the water was nice
The food was very good. I was pleased with the portions. Would have liked more to choose from though I understand operating during a pandemic has brought about some changes. My great granddaughter who just turned 18 recommended Sweetwater and overall it was a good experience. Service was timely and efficient.
Great spot for lunch. Food is always on point and service is good too.
I loved the bang bang shrimp and the impossible burger with cheese which I requested.
Our server was attentive and kind. I was relatively fussy throughout and she had no problems with it at all. The food was exquisite, the steak was cooked perfectly and even the broccolini was above expectations. I wouldn't really come here if I wanted more than one or two drinks, definitely a restaurant more than a bar.
Only recommendation: more low carb side options!
Great place to watch March Madness! Plenty of televisions, a wide variety of beer and mixed drink choices, great food. You can't beat the Sunny Side Burger with tater tots and an IPA.
The ambiance of the place was really nice and peaceful. The food is great quality and the service was top notch. I can’t wait to return!
The waiter took decades to take our order, and the food had absolutely ZERO flavor.
Phenomenal place - great service, delicious food, and very creative cocktails! Couldn't recommend enough.
Excellent! Service, food, cleanliness, atmosphere, all of it.
Great evening! Excellent service.
I live in the area so this place is so perfect for meeting friends for lunch or Dinner. The food dishes are delicious! My favorite is the Philly Steak Sandwich.
Great food, awesome service!
It’s was my birthday I had fun
They were gracious enough to seat us early. The dividers between customers at the bar were great! Bartender Eric made great drinks and was attentive but not overly. Food was good and warm when served. Just a fun time!
I think the shrimp or the burger was bad because I got super sick upon getting home and threw everything up that I ate.
If you are looking for a good place to go to catch a game and have a few beers, this is a pretty good place for it. Not much in terms of drink options, especially wine - but beer selection is decent. Food was solid as well.
Was looking for a place with drink and dining options open a little later. The food was okay. Had the Bang Bang shrimp and some tater tots. The shrimp weren't very hot. The tater tots were somewhat crunchy.
Surprisingly alot of the tables were filled with people given the Covid health and safety guidelines. Compared to some of the other restaurants it felt like although busy is a good thing for business that there were too many people. We found some other places with less people and more robust drink offerings. Most likely will not go back again.
Great to be back in person. Great food. Great service!!
It was their first day back and the service was bad. There were only 7 people and it took 40 minutes to get a salad. I’m sure they will improve. It’s really a nice restaurant.
Love the tater tots! The fish tacos were awesome.
Masks demanded to be worn all the time, super annoying when the person walks by 20 times and acts all distant because you didn’t see them coming and didn’t have your mask on. Food was watered down, disappointed in what used to be good tacos. I don’t care to pay for “okay” food and an uncomfortable eating environment.
The food was bland
It was a great experience. Would definitely go again
Order the Bang Bang shrimp and ask the bartenders for their favorite brews on tap. You won't be sorry.
The bartender, Steve, is awesome. Great place to go watch a game and have some good beer/food.
Food and drinks were excellent!
Wonderful service! Out of all the restaurants we went to while visiting Chicago, this was our favorite!
One of my favorite places in Chicago. Good food, great service!
Great beer selection
Great staff! We got the chicken nachos. Exceeded our expectations!
House wine was actually 2/3 of a bottle and overpriced. Food taste stayed with us for two days. Much better choices and better value nearby. Very disappointed and would not recommend.
Good quiet late lunch.
DRINKS WERENT REALLY STRONG OUR SERVER WAS GREAT FOOD JUST OK... I ASKED FOR NO ONIONS AND SEEMED AS IF THEY TOOK THEM OFF AFTER THEY ALREADY PUT IT IN TOP OF MY SANDWICH. IT TASTED LIKE ONIONS WHEN I BIT INTO IT I DONT THIS ID GO BACK.
