    Their patio is one of my favorites in the city, great menu with just enough items to have options but not so much it overwhelms you, can always find a craft brew to drink that I love as well.

    Try the 'Big Baby' burger medium, w/sweet potato fries. Mmm so good. Literally, the best burger I can recall. Guinness is always great, & on tap.

    This place is outstanding. Family friendly too. Must have the sweetwater burger, cheese curds, and tater tots. Right in the middle of downtown a few blocks from the mile and pier.

    The burgers here are thick and delicious — and expertly made to order. Try the Mushroom and Swiss with garlic aioli…and tater tots!

    You can't go wrong with the 8 oz ginger soy Skirt Steak, with grilled Asparagus and garlic mashed for $16.99. The Great Lakes Brewing Christmas Ale was also a winner. Happy Holidays!

    Great place to watch sports, have a craft beer or cocktail or have a bite to eat. They also serve brunch on the weekends.

    If you haven't had their quesadilla then you haven't lived. I'm from Texas and this is the best quesadilla I have ever had! It's no ordinary quesadilla. GET IT!

    Went for a Bears game and was pleasantly surprised to see that during the intermissions and commercials, there was a VJ spinning to keep things interesting. Great way to keep people involved!

    I like the Sweetwater burger. Pretzel bun, Swiss cheese, avocado and bacon. Ask the server for Chipotle mayo on the side. Delicious and great fries!

    Gluten-free friendly = no bun on burgers, and fries that share a fryer with gluten. Oh, salads can be made without croutons. No problem. (Yes, chef, corn starch is gluten-free, thanks for checking.)

    Good nachos!! They make them with fried wonton chips. The sauce was surprisingly good, too. Besides the prices and douchy environment, I'd say this place tasty.

    Sweetwater is packed with the upscale after work crowd on most evenings, and with a heavier tourist mix on the weekends. Great beer selection here.

    Enjoyed the fish tacos and my wife liked the tilapia. We both recommend the sweet corn bisque. Very nice patio seating.

    If you like turkey burgers try the Gobbler. Add a side of sweet potato fries and you have a great meal.

    Get the Sante Fe wrap it taste fresh and its delish! If you get chicken it's shredded and blends well with the veggies!

    Overall, the quality of lettuce used is sub-par. Chopped salad is tasty and filling, good flavors - isn't much to look at though. Pass on the house salad, uses the same bland Romaine as the chopped.

    Definitely try grilled asparagus, take two! Belgian beer is a must too

    Lovely space with an extensive menu but, unfortunately, the quality of food and service don't live up to the prime location. Under-seasoned burgers and inattentive lunch service.

    You can't go wrong here, everything is delicious. If you say you're splitting the chicken fingers they'll cut one in half and give you two plates - no worries on someone getting more!

    Wow - the Sweetwater burger was AMAZING - Swiss, avocado, and bacon on a grade "A" burger all in pretzel bun.

    Try the skirt steak. The glaze and the grilled vegetables over the top are fantastic. It's a nice alternative to the typical burger and wrap stuff.

    If you order the Cowboy salad, make sure to get the dressing on the side. They just soak this thing. If you are not a fast eater it'll just become soggy and you'll walk out disappointed like i did.
