“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Service and food was excellent! Friendly staff- ensured we had exactly what we needed! Good atmosphere - not too loud. Definitely try the Lounge Lemonade!

“Shrimp & Grits”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Excellent service and variety. Specialities of the house offered and very affordable. Atmosphere is fun and exciting and it's not noisy. Great place to take friends in from out of town.

“The best food, crafted beer, service!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

These Great American Restaurants (Sweetwater, Coastal Flats, etc.) are all great in their own ways. The soups like the lobster bisque and chicken tortilla (served on specific days, see menu), the beer (I like the darker non-Porters, wife likes the Porters), the rimmed Christmas beer was really good! Some interesting and tasty appetizers. Entrees are all good. We don't get into desserts much but the chocolate dessert is delicious! The best hamburger I've ever had and the fries rival McD's! Impeccable service. When single I enjoyed watching sporting events from the inside bar and the outside bar. You will return!!

“great family place _ won't break the bank”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

I LOVE SWEETWATER. Right now it is officially my go to restaurant if someone comes to town. great food great atmosphere . my husband fills his beer each visit at their microbrewery. I can get a great drink too. tastes fresh and hits the spot . I love that I can bring my four growing boys out to dinner and they can get a hearty meal _ burgers,ribs,steaks, you name it and they are full.then the bill comes and its under a hundred. for a family of six that is a good thing. high quality steaks and sea food. must do!
