I like Sweetwater Grill for the music and the atmosphere. It's a great spot in the summer. The food is good, but the service can be inconsistent. One of our appetizers was forgotten and my steak was cooked well when I ordered it rare. However,...More

Referred by ski rental operator, who recommended atmosphere and food. Atmosphere of bar was ok, but dining area was sterile and too brightly lit. Food ranged from ok to terrible. The free appetizer (deep fried risotto) was just weird. Salads and steaks were ok. Swordfish...More

We went expecting sandwiches and burgers. Instead, I had one of the best grilled tuna dishes I've ever eaten. Great new menu.

There were 4 adults and 3 kids. We enjoyed dinner on the second floor. The menu was unique- but somewhat limited. Server nice and food was well prepared. Little cold for the ladies on that level.

Thanks for spending Christmas dinner with us. We only use that room for private parties and special occasions like Christmas. We'll heat it up better next time ... but what views, huh? Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for the great review. The shade system that we just installed this summer is fantastic. Next summer we intend to add lighting and heat for better night time outdoor dining. Thanks for the suggestion!
