Across the Hudson River from Manhattan is the nice restaurant Sweetwater. You can jump on the boat from Pier 11, and suddenly you are there after a couple of stops up the river. What strikes me is how welcome you feel upon arrival and I feel a true form of caring. Most of the people in the bar and in... More

We were dog sitting for a few days in Williamsburg and found this great place for lunch. It's an old bar from many, many years ago and also a great restaurant. We decided to take a chance and it turned out to be a chance well worth it. The food was absolutely fantastic. I had a pork burger with some... More

I recently joined a friend here after work and we enjoyed some lovely drinks, a few appetizers and 1 very pleasant Bartender! Cannot wait to return for a full dinner. No surprise this place is amazing! I just discovered Bakeri and Sweetwater share the same owner!

Sweetwater is, indeed, a sweet place in an atmospheric dining room with a great vintage feel. The menu is simple but food is well prepared and hits the spot. Service is relaxed, but staff are knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Good for friends, couples and very small groups.

Met up with a few friends here for dinner. Drinks are great. Would recommend the drago and the bill murray if you like cocktails. Food excellent. Entrance is on the right of the other bar of the corner and the whole place is actually in the basement. Great atmosphere. Foosball, pool table etc.

I went here for brunch with a friend. The waiter was incredibly helpful and nice, few times I have been in a place where you can feel that people are nice for the sake of being nice and not for the tip. The eggs supreme were really good, a version of Benedict eggs but lighter and with fresh avocado. The... More

My husband and I walked into this adorable Williamsburg spot after walking out of another restaurant where the service and staff were very rude. We walked right in and were greeted with smiles. The cozy restaurant was exactly what we needed. The food was amazing. We ordered a special appetizer - Bruschetta with roasted grapes and ricotta - Delicious! I... More

Nice bar and restaurant in Williamsburg. Everything I've ever eaten there is really good. Small menu, but all good and with good variety (scallops to burgers). Different lunch and dinner menu. I think breakfast is on the lunch menu, but maybe they have a third menu. Not sure about brekkie, but I definitely saw people eating steak and eggs.
