Very similar to the other places, almost a clone. Food is the same. Slightly better choice of beers, but all served too cold Uberfriendly service. Most idiots around me were drinking bud or martinis, so no point socializing with either crowd.

This place was rather loud with country music on the Friday afternoon I visited. There were 5 house beers available, and the two I tried were solid offerings. I did not eat, but the menu is the same across their locations, and when I have eaten, it was average pub fare - nothing worth seeking out.

Sweetwater Centerville is a great restaurant with a limited selection of their beers on tap. On my last visit there were only 5 beers available on tap despite having a ton listed on the menu. Food and service on the other hand were excellent as always... just as I remembered when I lived in the area.

Visited here on 05/16/2009. Huge cavernous room with the bar centered in the pit in the middle. Service was quick and the food was tasty. Only one new beer here as Iíve been to the Sterling location before and nothing too fancy was on tap here. Certainly worth stopping by if youíve not had anything from Sweetwater, though the samplers are a bit pricey at $8.

This place was much bigger than expected. Large and open, but with a cozy vibe as well. Service was professional and friendly. They offer a very amply sized sampler, which was nice. Food was slightly above average. Some of the beers were aimed towards the masses but they were overall well made and there was a standout or two. Prices are a little pricy.

I stopped in on a wednesday night after a long day on the road and getting accidentally stuck in Obama campaign rally traffic in Leesburg VA. This place is fairly big, with an indoor and outdoor bar. The ambiance is a cross between chain and chic, but is loud when crowded. The crowd is textbook suburbanite. I sat at the heated outdoor bar area. They had 5 beers on tap and offered samplers. The food looked and smelled very good, but I had already eaten. The beers were decent (except for the light lager, but thatís ok). This seems to be a popular place. Worth a stop if you in the area, especially if you like good food.

Imagine going to the first Chiliís ever and being impressed by the casual devil-may-care design scheme and decor. That is what Sweetwater was like for me. Certainly a Western themecomplete with barbed wire lamps, horses, and a whole lot of red, navy and beige.
The food is quite good! I was quite pleased with the spinach artichoke dip, jambalaya pasta and apple cobbler crisp.
The service was almost over-bearing glasses are refilled when they are 3/4 full!

I have to rate their beer as average. I havenít tried the full range of their offerings but the lager and light beers are weak sisters and the pale ale lacks zest.
My two experiences in this restaurant were dampened by extremely rude bar staff. The food and table wait staff were very good but the bar staff had me good and POíd before we got to that point of the night. Why go into the hospitality business if you donít like people?

This is one of my favorite places to eat and the beers on tap are usually quite good as well. If you have the chance to stop in, the chicken tenders are among the best Iíve ever had, and the Jambalaya pasta is pretty badass. They keep their light beer (Naked River) and pale ale on tap at all times, and rotate the other 3 beers. There is always one stout/porter and then two seasonals, some better than others.
If you go on a weekday, I would highly, highly recommend drinking/eating at the bar with Neil as your bartender. Heís been with the company for years and never fails to give top-notch service (and a few complimentary samples!)
Deal of the year is the High Desert Imperial Stout growlers for $10/refill when itís in production.
