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.

Birthday * **
Very good meal and nice ambiance although of course social distance seating.
Fish tacos were excellent.
Everything was nice, staff included. It's just kind of weird with protesters on one end, the bridge up on the other end. Overall imy visit was pleasant.
The short rib hash lacked flavor the potatoes were black nachos were good but the buffalo rolls were to salty
The vibe was amazing. The food was delicious. The service was fast and the waiter was super nice. I will definitely come here again. Can’t wait 😊😊😃
Brunch was great. Our server David was very attentive and really nice. Food was great and I look forward to returning with friends to enjoy the outside Patio.
Outside seating, atmosphere was great. Right on Michigan Ave which was a plus...
awful, overpriced food with mediocre service. clearly a tourist trap.
The outdoor seating was great,nice breeze and good food
Friendly staff & great food! Would definitely go back.
Perfect place for my boyfriend and I to celebrate our anniversary the vibe was super chill and the service was very friendly. To top it off the presentation and overall flavors of the food was phenomenal. We will definitely be coming back.
The place is very nice outside, but inside it's just impossible to talk. The music is too loud ! Is it a club or a restaurant? Otherwise good and affordable burgers.
Random music that would change genres way too often and didn’t fit the mood, service was great though.
A must try if ever in the area, very good food and service. Everything we order from the drinks, salad, Ahi Tuna, and Steak, was prepared to perfection.
The hostess at the front desk who first sat me was rude, barely greeted me upon arrival, put my menu on the table and walked away without saying anything about having a good dining experience or if I needed something. She had a poor attitude.
The southwest chicken salad I ordered is much better than anticipated. The chicken was served warm with a bit of a southwest barbecue style sauce on it. The portion sizes were plentiful. Service was polite and prompt.
Hi there, I'm glad you had a pleasant experience at Sweetwater! Come back again soon! - Staley
Nice quality dinner. Moderate price, great service.
Food was good and a great beer selection. We could tell the server was trying to rush us out of the restaurant. Gave us the check and then checked 3 different times within 5 minutes if we put our cards in. When we paid, we saw him immediately leave the restaurant. He just wanted to be done with his shift and didn’t care about us staying to finish up our drinks.
Dinner before the Donna Summer Musical was perfect.
Hi Gaby, thanks for visiting Sweetwater! We look forward to seeing you again soon! - Staley
Brunch was very good.
We started with the Mimosa Flight (4 different types of Mimosas out of 8 or 9 different ones to choose from) was very good! We had the Classic, Bellini, Tropical, & Sangria. Each offers a different taste and is a very relaxing start to brunch.
The Two Egg "Breakfast" was good - offering eggs, toast, sausage, and cheesy potatoes. Very filling and a nice menu item.
The Hot Turkey Press was served with avocado and was exceptional.
Service by Kelton was very good and attentive.
A nice and quiet place for brunch.
The meal choices lacked enough fruit and veggies. The cauliflower was spicy and very hard to slice
Southwest chicken wrap had no flavor. Water glass was dirty
It was cold inside
