Sweetwater has really deteriorated since our visit 2 years ago. Very high prices for small portions. Crab cakes for $18.00 container about 80 cents worth of crab. Pasta and 5 shrimp was $24.00, exhorbitant. One night we went for dinner and could not order hot...More

Ask for an outside deck table on the city's river walk. Prime Rib on Fridays only is a real treat as is the risotto! Good beer on tap, but there is no dark local tap beer--too bad.

We had two meals in this restaurant. Both were good. The beet salad is very good (if you like beets like I do). The breakfast menu had huevos rancheros, so I ordered them. It came and was very unique in the presentation, but very good...More

Outside seating and inside, as well. Friendly wait staff. Nice manager from Lima, Peru. Food was good, not the largest of portions, and typical nice hotel restaurant prices ($13 for calamari app, $6 for flavored popcorn, etc) but there are tons of cheap eats nearby....More

Most of our party had hamburgers at SweetWaters that were excellent. Unfortunately, the pork belly served on the hamburger was not cooked properly and was like eating a piece of uncooked fat. We always thought pork belly should be prepared like crispy bacon.
