Had a wonderful lunch with girlfriends on the river. Our waitress Brittany took great care of us! Enjoyed the flowers, river, sunshine and maybe a mimosa or two with a yummy Cobb salad.

This is a great restaurant with a beautiful view of the Willamette River. The food is very good and the prices are about normal for a nicer restaurant.

Sweet waters has a really nice patio dining area. Some of the dishes were very good, like the scallops and grits as well as the smoked salmon. The burgers were huge and also pretty good. Would definitely recommend for a nice dinner on the patio.

My wife and I stopped by for breakfast. The food was good and the staff was friendly. My wife liked the Bloody Mary bar. When we were leaving there was a long wait but plenty of seating (I’m guessing not enough staff).
