Had dinner with friends and called ahead to get on the wait list. On a busy Friday night, we waited only 10 minutes for a table. The beer lovers in the group enjoyed a selection a beers, including the sampler. Tuna entree was great as was the jambalaya. We had a great server and were not rushed with our meal.

We had an assortment of dishes. Ribs, prime rib and crab cakes. Everything was delicious. Prime rib a little under cooked but was quickly taken care of by our waiter. Prices very reasonable for portion size

My first visit with my husband was good. My second visit left much to be desired & the last visit will remain the last. Their location & food is not so great that I will spend another cent on a place that tries to rush you out. During my last visit with a friend we both had dinner, i ordered... More

My girlfriend & I enjoyed a Caesar salad & the salmon appetizer. Service was good, food was great, we were not pushed to leave the moment we were done eating.

This member of the Great American Restaurant group is our favorite spot in eastern Loudoun County for casual dining. Wonderful American-style menu. Service is attentive and very efficient. The smoked salmon is to die for. We have never had a poor dining experience in this restaurant.

Service and waiter were outstanding and very attentive. Always a great meal here! Waited less than 2 minutes to be seated and was even visited by one of the managers to check on our meal!

We enjoy the food at Sweetwater, but again, we were "rushed out the door." Our latest visit was with out of town guests (four of us) on a Sunday evening. We ordered an appetizer, salads, and entrees. The appetizer arrived at the same time as the salads; therefore, we were unable to actually enjoy the appetizer (two cool dips). We... More

Nice little restaurant next to drainage pond. Good micro brew and meals. The patio on the water is hopping usually.
