Came to the area for work and ended up here every night. The menu offers all of the Chophouse staples plus some unique selections. They also have seasonal food and drink specials. Try the Smokey Ol' Fashioned. It's a very unique twist to a classic...cocktail. Might be one of the best cocktails I've ever had. I travel alot for work and can say that everything I had was top notch. Prices are reasonable or even cheap compared to other Chophouses or similar type restaurants. Special shot outs: Nicole (Tuesday evening) for making the best Smokey Ol'Fashioned and taking extra time to talk to me about the drink Crystal (Wednesday & Thursday evenings) for taking the time and caring to make sure she got the Smokey Ol'Fashioned just right. Mandy (Wednesday evening) for having the kitchen special make a creamy horseradish to accompany my steak. It's really the service that distinguishes a place. These girls make this place stand above the rest and are the reason I came to the same restaurant 3 consecutive nights. This place is doing it right. Rumor has it the Smokey Ol' Fashioned (that I can't shut up about) is getting discontinued. Maybe management will reconsider after reading this.More

Defiance Ohio does not have many choices for fine dining so it's nice we have a place that offers better quality food. Being a vegetarian we always have a hard time finding non meat options. This place had a couple options and a pizza/tavern in...the basement. We were happy with our meal. Would be nice if there was more vegetarian options. I would suggest this establishment to my friends and family. Meat lovers would really enjoy this restaurant. Burgers looked good.More

My wife and I went to Sweetwater on Nee Years Eve. She had salmon and I ordered the filet. My wife always loves the salmon there and the filet was the best steak I have had out in awhile. Great place for any occasion.

Hadn't been here in 2 years. Drink showed up with a lime wedge that was brown and dried out. Salad bar was a big disappointment. A very small bowl given by waiter. Lettuce was full of brown, dried out lettuce. Some condiments were crusted over....Looked as though it had been exposed for hours. Really? Who is managing this place? I got the turkey meatloaf with mac and cheese. It was way to sweet.More

Food was delish ! When you order to go, napkins and silverware should ALWAYS be included! Throw that in the suggestion box ! Would definitely order again.

Met friends here for dinner. I was told 30 minute wait for a table so I went into the bar. Looking from the bar into the dining area I saw 5 or 6 tables that were empty and just waiting for people. The 2 bartenders...would not look at us to say hi or acknowledge we were there. When one went for her phone I got her attention saying we would like drinks. Eventually the hostess came for our party and we could not get the bar staff’s attention to cash out. The hostess had to yell her name so we could pay The food was ok but not great. My $30 steak was more like a $15 chain steakhouse quality The waitress bragged on how good the salad bar was and the huge selection there. Maybe because she oversold it but all the basic items were there but far from special. No soup on the bar but not a big deal When I pay over $50 for my steak and 2 drinks I just want better than hereMore

Nice place to eat. You can sit near the windows with a good view of golf course. Wraps are delicious.

We are visiting from out of town and had this restaurant recommended to us. First of all it is a from scratch kitchen! That is so hard to find these days! We had soups, salads, chicken and beef. Everything was perfection. The menu is nice...size and had a lot of variety. Our service was amazing too. We wish we lived closer because this would be our #1 restaurant. We have eaten at 100’s of different restaurants so this is pretty high praise. Keep up the good work! Americans need more scratch kitchens.More
