Description: Take a seat at our restaurant in Eugene and enjoy a panoramic view of the Willamette River while enjoying breakfast, lunch, dinner or a glass of Willamette Valley pinot noir at SweetWaters. Our Chef has put his own spin on traditional Northwest favorites, using fresh, locally sourced ingredients to create seasonal menus to delight the most seasoned palate. Whether here to enjoy a candlelit dinner in our main dining room, a relaxed lunch on our outdoor patio, or cocktails with friends in the SweetWaters lounge, this is a Pacific Northwest dining experience not to be missed.

My husband and I have eaten at Sweet Waters a number of times, and have brought family members. We love the food and the friendly service. We love sitting by the big windows with a great view of the river. Everything we've tried on the menu has been top notch! My favorite is the salmon salad. Wow! Thank you, Sierra!

This is not an inexpensive restaurant by Eugene standards, but is priced similar to a larger City. The great surprise, however, is that the food is presented well, and it is very very good. It is located in a hotel that is average quality but the restaurant would match up against good quality restaurants in downtown Portland. Good vegetarian fare. I tried the polenta and it was the best I had ever had. This is a restaurant that is worthy of "date night", as the food is good, and the view of the river is excellent. Like most places in Eugene, the dress standard is "northwest relaxed". I wore a sport coat and slacks with open collar, but others were there in jeans and casual wear shirts and every fit in. It is kid friendly as well. There is a ful service bar that you can eat in if you wish, and it still has the same great food and view.

Love it, the Calimari was divine. Service was great and fast. Refills on my beverage was constant and the draft beer selections were spot on. Have a citrus hop valley compliments the meal perfectly.
