My family picked this restaurant after finding out one of our favorite restaurants was closed due to a remodel. Sweetwater did not disappoint. Delicious salad, fish and chips and the wings were outstanding. Parking was a little difficult if you couldn't find a meter.

For my money, the best all-around spot downtown. You'll have good food, possibly meet some interesting people, and feel like you're someplace real. Has that good in-between feel for a bar where it's dark enough to feel cozy but there are windows to see the street going by.

This place was recommended to us by a handful of locals and it did not disappoint. The wings are out of this world. I cannot think of any other way to describe them, best wings I've ever tasted! Wish I'd ordered a second helping....

The ribs were also outstanding, and the service was great. But I literally cannot get those wings out of my head.

The wings and onion rings are delicious. Wish there were local beers available instead of just national chain brands. Very cool old building. Can't wait to go back!

OK. This place rocks. It opens early and closes late. The food is outstanding. The Ribs are top notch. Big Pig is delicious. The wings rock. They pour stiff drinks. I always recommend this place to anyone staying at the Ren Cen or downtown.
