“Get the wings”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

We chose Sweetwater for the wings. Just happened to be walking distance from our Marriott hotel. Cool small restaurant/bar vibe. Great staff. Much thanks to Cliff. Lots of locals which is always a great sign. We had wings & beer. Although they have a full menu of food & drink options. The wings are award winning & delicious. Great blend of sauce/spices. Perfect amount of heat. We ended up ordering more after the first round. They come in orders of 10 wings. Enjoy!

“Delicious food and great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

We went here before going to a concert at St. Andrews hall across the street. The atmosphere is great and the food is fantastic! The wings are the best wings we've ever had. The sauce on them is spicy and sweet. Portion sizes and prices are good. Our waiter was excellent as well. I highly recommend this place.

“Delish Wings”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

This restaurant has the best wings that I have every tasted. They marinate them for 24 hours. We also had their Bloody Mary which was good and had almost a meal served with it, salami, cheese, olive, celery, pickle and a good size shrimp.

“Once again my favorite.”
Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

This is our second visit to Sweetwater. We love the wings. A little hot but AMAZING! It was late on Labor Day weekend Sunday and busy, but well worth it. A very well poured drink with almost a double shot and great wings. Awesome music

“Fun atmosphere, expensive drinks fatty ribs”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Very sassy waitress, almost not in a fun way. Ordered a specific gin she said they didn't have it. They did. Beers expensive. $6.50 for Newcastle. French fries cheap quality and served cold. Yuck. Wings good. That would the only reason to go here. Not on my return list. Too many other small, cozy, hospitable restaurants nearby.
