Great Deck

The service and Northwoods feel of the Sweetwater, was terrific -- the food was just okay, but then again -- we enjoyed it.

I eat at Sweetwater frequently and love their food. Burgers, broasted chicken, french dips... All great!! I highly recommend this establishment for lunch or a casual dinner.

My wife and I liked this place for a quick bite to eat when in town. New menus with higher prices. I had wings that were just fine my wife had a cup of soup with a breadstick. Fill the cup if I am going to pay that much. Her sandwich was ten dollars with a side of chips that... More

We had the pizza. It was a 5-6 out of a 10. To much oregano, and the sauce was missing something. Our friends had the broasted chicken. They said it was good. In the past I've had so-so experiences here. Last night was no different. Oh by the way out waitress was excellent.

Although this place had cheap beer due to it being Happy Hour, the food was definitely not anything I would return for. Typical bar menu, a lot of deep fries items, nothing healthy really.

We were a group of seven and decided to stop in for dinner on a Saturday night. We were greeted by a friendly waitress and seated immediately. Some of the comments from our group...fish & chips (good), Reuben sandwich (okay), taco salad (not so good), cheeseburger (good). The waitress was fun and we had a good time. Would we return?...

We ate here and enjoyed the atmosphere of this busy bar that seems popular as it is close to the snowmobile trails and has plenty of parking. We both had the broasted chicken and I would recommend it. Plenty of food, hot and fresh and a nice choice of potatoes. The potato wedges were among the tastiest I have had.... More

We used to eat here fairly often, but we no longer hit the place. sometimes the food was good, other times it was burnt. the sweet potato fries were sometimes served BLACK. you would think that they would not try to serve something burnt.

I was staying over in Eagle River on business and the local people I was working with suggested I eat at Sweet Waters to watch the ALC Wild Card game. Arriving after 7 PM the restaurant and bar area had cleared out leaving me to have a full half of the bar to myself. Very courteous and delightful bartenders gave... More
