I've lived in JH for 8 years now and felt a little silly that I hadn't been to sweet water yet. I guess I hadn't made the effort based on the poor reviews my peers had given me about it. They were right. Ate here last night and it was one disappointment after another. Nothing really major just enough that I was happy I wasn't paying for it, and won't be returning. As we were just sitting down the waitress asked if we knew what we wanted to order to eat yet... What? I hadn't even gotten a glass of water or a chance to physically pick up the menu. She seemed to really rush us through the ordering process. I asked if she prefer the Salmon or the trout dish, and as soon as I asked I knew I was wasting my time. I ordered the tout and it came with no sauce. Just 3 dinky little cocktail lemons. The trout was dry, and the skin was greasy. When I lifted up the fish, it dripped with grease. Then the side was some kind of cheesy cauliflower. They tried to make it sound fancy on the menu, but I would actually literally put real money down that what it was is cauliflower, velvita/American cheese, skim milk and bread crumbs. No joke. The place mats look like someone robbed my grandmothers home and placed them on dingy picnic tables. They would also do themselves a huge favor to put up some kind of fence or vine or something in between them and Thai me up. Thai me up is a great place, but they play loud music and also have outdoor seating so it kind of mashes up two very different vibes. I hope they make some improvements to Sweetwater, as I think it could have amazing potential, but as long as they are charging $25-$30 for something I could make on a bad day, I won't be back.
