Sweetwater Restaurant

★★★★☆
This former tavern leaps from grungy dive to modern American delish, and keeps the value to boot.

The specials are always good. Great burger. Amazing pork tenderloin. Nice cocktails, long and affordable wine list, extensive selection of beer. It's all a little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Brunch is actually considerably

One of the only "neighborhood joints" left in Williamsburg where the food is always consistent and the staff remembers your name. \r

I've been a regular for years, and the food has changed, but stayed pretty consistent. of note are the fried calamari, meats are their strong point: burgers, hanger steak, pork tenderloin. brunches are pretty light. great outdoor garden. HOWEVER, service isn't their strong point. i'm getting pretty tired of the argentine "owner" and his manners. he should be running a club not a restaurant. my husband and i came in waiting to be seated, when a couple of tarts hobbled up. the argentine sat them first and completely ignored us. if you can stomach watching him flutter about chatting up young chicks, your girlfriend or wife and can stand his dismissive attitude toward other customers than Sweetwater would be the perfect place to bring your hot date. what has become of a neighborhood when regulars don't count anymore?

Stumbled onto this place the other day after a day of bike riding and looking for a light lunch. Since I?m a lover of variety and sharing, we decided on 4 appetizers: garlic shrimp, roasted avocado w/ tomatoes, provolone rice meatballs w/ sausage ragu, and arugula salad w/ pecans green apples, and camembert ? everything was delicious. I especially liked the back patio which gets plenty of sun and shade on a nice day. The only thing that was a bummer was that this place is cash only. O well, I?m definitely coming back to try other things on the menu.

A friend and I had finished dinner early on a Tuesday evening and were ordering successive rounds of beers, when a man in a dirty sweat jacket and jeans, without introducing himself or saying anything in the least gracious, began regularly assaulting our table, indicating he wanted us to leave. Apparently this guy was the manager! I understand restaurants need to "turn tables," but instead of an introduction and polite suggestion, we got a sharp-tongued accusation! We left fresh beers on the table and vowed never to go back. He completely ruined our night.

This was one of my favorite bars in NYC. I left it and two years later it was a restaraunt. Gone was the charm and in was the 'cashin' in' aspect that is plaguing Williamsburg. It was a neighborhood hang out, now I'm not sure what it is. I guess it fits in with that psuedo-Gap that moved in across the street.

A few years after the millennium, Sweetwater Tavern was a mecca for the hipster neighborhood's grungiest. It was dirty and dodgy, but they made a potent cocktail. All that disappeared, except for the potent cocktails, when the beloved spot…
