“Good food, disappointing menu”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

One year ago I raved about this restaurant which was newly opened. Therefore we returned expecting the same wonderful food and dining experience. The menu has changed, so it did not offer choices that were at the top of our list. Nevertheless, we ordered and were satisfied with the quality. Because of several large groups there that evening, the service from the kitchen was slow, but we did not mind because of the celebratory nature of our family gathering. I think you will be satisfied if you choose to dine there. The view of Howelsen Hill is an attractive draw.

“Best in Steamboat”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

On the third night of my vacation, my boyfriend and I went to the Sweetwater Grille and had the best experience! My partner had the burger and it was big, juicy sirlion burger on a brioche bun. Definitely not a frozen patty. The waffle fries that came with the burger were outstanding. I enjoyed the salmon plate. The salmon was cooked perfectly and came with capers, tomatoes, and crackers. The server was extrememly knowledgable about the menu and local hotspots. Afterwards, we moved to the bar and I had the most wonderful drink - Jerry's Berry's. The bartender was an absolute delight and fun. the atomsphere was fun and very hip. The perfect place for a dinner and drink (especially by the outdoor fire pit).

“Best Happy Hour in the Boat”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

We always do multiple happy hours at Sweetwater Grill each time we're in Steamboat (2-3 times per ski season). 4-6pm half price anything in the bar and $2-$4 excellent appetizer menu that changes each time we visit. The bar area is very relaxing with your choice of seating types - bar, high top tables, or couches near the fireplace, with views of skiers/jumpers on Howelson. Friendly management and very attentive and friendly wait staff.

Can't miss.

“Great atmosphere on the river”
Reviewed December 4, 2011

The outdoor seating was wonderful, in cooler temps they have a gas fireplace to sit by.
The inside seating was nice as well. It had a very chic feeling.
I was happy with the food, smiple selections tastefully done.
Do get a local's card when you are here.
And check the schedule for live music!

“Review only based on wine/cocktails”
Reviewed November 14, 2011

Marginal wine list, and cocktails were weak and overpriced. I didn't eat anything so this review does not rate the food at all. Good atmosphere though.
