Always good, we tend to get the same thing every time we visit. It is always consistent and crowded.

Scenic patio overlooking a pond with fountains. Service is prompt & efficient. Food is always fresh & well prepared. Large variety of different beers offered. No lineup to get in.

This is part of a conglomerate of restaurants, so the food is very consistent in its quality and delivery. Service is typically top notch and the food is different/unique from most other restaurants in Sterling. They do a good business, but the parking and typical wait usually sways me towards other options. They brew their own beer, so that's a... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend. Took the family for dinner. Found a fly on daughter's food, manager asked what we wanted replaced. All food tasteless, atmosphere poor, generally disappointing experience.

Took my Mom for dinner here, first time, but not the last. This place is tucked into an area with 3 or 4 other restaurants. Service is outstanding, well organized, pleasant and friendly. Food was amazing and cooked perfectly. I love spinach with my prime rib and they did not disappoint. Mom had the fish and a Pinot wine, delish!!... More

Been here several times. Always great service and great food! We say at the bar this time and the bartender was very attentive and we were very well taken care. Thanks Andrea! I recommend the caesar salad, pork chops and for dessert, white chocolate bread pudding! And of course, the bread!!!

I chose this place based on it's ranking and proximity to my hotel. The blue crab fritters were very tasty and the sauce was very good as well. I had the Jambalaya Pasta which was tasty and savory. My friend had the Penne Primavera which she said was good but not great. The bread was nice and warm. The staff... More

Sit at the bar! The ambience at the bar was warm and inviting. Happy Hour offered sliders and home made quacamole. Wine was $4.00. On a buisness trip and very hungry..we came in for dinner and the bartender told us to see the specials and to enjoy the happy hour suggestions while we decided on dinner. Dinner was awesome. Perfectly... More

I travel quite a bit and can honestly say that Sweetwater is our favorite restaurant of all time! We used to live the DC area and would frequent the restaurant weekly! I had the opportunity to travel to the Dulles area on business and was glad to have the opportunity to visit Sweetwater...twice! This was my first experience with the... More
