Place to go for a steak

It was like walking into a cabin and visiting for dinner. Loved the coziness and that it was quiet. Nice meal for a couple. Our waitress Kendall, was so kind and chatted with us for a while, and gave us some good insight on places to go- we loved that. I had steak and my husband had a filet... read more

The ribs here are fantastic. But the elk Osso Buco is delicious. Also a very amiable proprietor. Would highly recommend. A value in high-priced Jackson.

Lucky to be here off season and get the "two for one" special. My husband had the 1/2 rack of BBQ ribs and his comment was "good and meaty". His sides were a salad with raspberry poppyseed dressing and skinny fries with his ribs. I had the cheese spinach soufflé and it was awesome! It was cheesy, buttery, fresh and... More

Had lunch - turkey wrap and shrimp poorboy - very plain. Own is from Louisiana. Not up to Louisiana style. Service was poor. They were just coming back from being closed - off season. And there were 2 popular resturants closed due to road construction which probably caused them to be busier than normal which is no excuse for poor... More

So sorry about the food being average. I have never had someone not happy with the Po'Boy. Usually rave reviews. We have a lot of new servers this year who are still learning the ropes and it was very busy that week out of the blue. No excuse for poor service, I just thought that I would let you know.... More

Dined here with our friends when visiting Jackson. Mahi Mahi was the special~ so two of us ordered it. Excellent and HUGE portions! We loved every bite. The guys ordered the baseball steaks and they were overlooked..... which is disappointing, but the taste was good so they didn't send them back. Side dishes were all good but my Grits were... More

Horrible service and food. I have ate here twice and hated it both times. The food is mediocre and prices are high. They added on a $40 tip to our bill for 2 people.

I'm sorry, I don't normally respond to online reviews, but will on this one. This is your second review on Sweetwater. After the 1st, I was really nice via e-mail and told you I would make it Right. You were on the other hand very nasty and said you would only eat at Wendy's while in Jackson as it was... More

Went for lunch last week, all portions were huge. The elk burger was delicious. The overall dining experience was cute and rustic with homemade placemats and fireplace burning nearby. The restaurant was built 100 years ago and my kids loved it! Thought it was cute the owner's daughter was our waitress. She did a pretty good job.

The atmosphere is cozy in a historical log cabin. The food was extremely good with spectacular presentation. The owner is very present and went from table to table making conversation. It is a small setting so it was nice to learn so much about him and the restaurant/area. It is somewhat pricey but you get what you pay for. It... More

Was here with a large group of friends the first week of March. Very quaint restaurant in a log cabin - a rustic feel that fit the vibe of Jackson. We were also pleasantly surprised (especially in Jackson) at some of the wine prices and ordered a couple of bottles of the Ravenswood Zinfandel at only $22/bottle - however when... More

Wonderfully decorated cabin in Jackson, very cosy! Our waiter was excellent and made the evening for us! Portions were a good size and there is a good variety of food on the menu for those who have had enough Red Meat!
