Prime rib was flavorless, with lots of tough gristle last night (7/05/2018). "Bland" is the most accurate word for the flavor of the 6 oz early bird special. Almost like it was old----but not aged. We had never had anything bad at Sweetwater before, and...More

The steak was just ok, but way overpriced and the atmosphere was terrible. More like a coffee shop than a steakhouse. And the staff was disinterested. They never asked if we wanted another drink or dessert, just brought a check. Would definitely eat somewhere else...More

This place offers a good menu from salads to steaks/ribs. Reasonably priced and good portions. The staff were very welcoming. It's always busy so that speaks for it's self . it's more of a dinner layout inside. I had the sweet water salad with chicken...More
