Okay place to eat

We ate at Sweet Water on a Tuesday on the way back to Madison, WI for lunch. The food was good for bar food and was served hot to us on their outdoor deck where we were the only party. The waitress was cool and aloof and seemed to be stressed out by waiting on us even though there were... read more

We stopped by via boat for lunch. Upon arrival we were warned that there may be a 45 min. wait for food since they just recieved a rush of large groups. We decided to stay to make the best of it. We were glad we decided to stay. The wait for our food was no more than about 30 mins.... More

Delicious last dinner meal to have before returning home the next day from our vacation! Had the perch - they give a generous amount with great side dishes as well!

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.

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

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
