I've been going to Sweetwater Tavern for many years. The whole experience has always been great. I can't imagine anyone who would give a less than perfect review.

The restaurant is part of the eight restaurants that make up the Great American Restaurant in northern Virginia.. They also own Best Buns where they get all their bread. Sweetwater brews their beer (and root beer)!

Great food, great service, but with a slightly different menu from the outstanding Carlyle Grand Cafe.

Dropped in here based on tripadvisor rating and what a great call. Excellent service. The manager even stopped out and said he was not satisfied with my steak and was cooking a new one. That's great service!

We visited on a Saturday night and the place was packed. But, there is a good reason for that. The service is great, the food is tremendous, and the atmosphere is excellent. We spent our wait time at the bar, where they serve a number of local draft beers. Once we were seated, the service was prompt and friendly. We found it very interesting that all of the servers in the area took care of us. We must have had five different servers come by and take additional drink orders, bring the meal, take our dessert order, etc. It was refreshing to have such efficient service. The food was outstanding as well. Everything was cooked perfectly and tasted great. To summarize, it is crowded, but well worth it. I don't think you will be disappointed!

Fantastic atmosphere for a midweek dinner. The beers were great and I thought they were priced pretty well. The food we ordered was well prepared and good. Portions were ok but not large but i did expect larger for the price. I would recommend starting with an appetizer. We finished with one :)
