Six of us had a great meal once they got it correct. They just opened and there were many errors with the order but the food was good.

Ryan a server at the grill has delivered the most delightful dining experience I have ever had. He has a positive out look and brings an enthusiasm to the job that is hard to find. His can do attitude is rare find in this industry.

“Breakfast thats to die for with a view you can't miss!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

I brought some of my friends to sweetwaters who have never been here before and they absolutely loved it! The food was amazing and the service was one of a kind and signature. Tina our server was attentive and fun to talk to. We will definitely be coming back and of course getting some more bloody marys. Also very excited to try the New Happy Hour!

“Best breakfast spot in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

We truly love this place. There's only a handful of true breakfast spots in Eugene, but this is one of our personal favorites. The menu variety is fantastic, the food is wonderful, and the drinks are so tasty! We prefer to sit outside on the patio - and the ambiance is second to none. Of course we always appreciate the friendly wait staff as well as the accommodating management. This place is must-try!

“A REAL TREAT.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

If you're lucky enough to get SIERRA as your server, the service will be as good as the food. The grass fed prime rib is the best in town. I've had better long island tea's but the desserts were heavenly. Highly recommended.
