Eat at Sweetwater's nearly as much as at home. Thanks to Sarah and Lisa for always making me feel at home. Best service in Eugene!

We were able to sit outside where we could enjoy some nice weather and a great view of the river while we had a delicious lunch.

Cocktails with the best river view in Eugene. The food is very good. The service fantastic. Not very pricey. Sweet Waters in the Valley River Inn is a must stop when showing family and friends around the city.

We went to sweet waters when our family stayed there. The food was good, but the best part was the relaxing atmosphere.. The river is beautiful. We will go there again when in Eugene.

Wonderful sunny fall day. Sat on the patio, or dog was welcomed. Staff was so friendly. Great service, excellent food. Grilled salmon salad was excellent! Loved it. Will make this a regular routine.

Great view of the river. Food was so-so. Bartender had a difficult time getting our drinks poured and completely forgot my 2nd glass of wine. Waitress tried too hard to be perfect and it was a bit akward.
