Good food, excellent service and decent beers. For this traveling Californian this place had everything I didn’t expect to find in the DC-Contractor Belt.

Lunch on a saturday was quiet and nice. Go here any evening and the puppy is packed out. Decent food although a little pricey. Beers are decent but all made to appease a wider audience which is fine. A brew pub needs to make money after all. Waitress was cute, sorry forgot her name already, and knowledgeable but awkward about the beers. Had the sampler and enjoyed the stout the best.

We went here while visiting a friend in the area. The place was absolutely packed on a Saturday night but apparently that’s a regular thing. The place is big; decent sized bar area, lots of TVs. Tried a few of the beers they had on tap, nothing spectacular or boundary stretchers, but they were all solid. The food was surprisingly excellent. More than just typical pub food and it was very well done. I was impressed with the service as well. No small brewpub vibe but a very fun place.

Happy hour time or so, before 6pm. Sat at the bar. Had a wonderful bartender. Other bartenders were nice as well, and had wonderful conversations with everyone. Gave advice on which beers he (the bartender) liked most, and let me sample some of them. Loved the decor, and thought that the atmosphere was fantastic. Like all other Great American resturants, the food is great.

A large, open brewpub in the DC Metro area with two sister pubs. The food is pretty good and reasonably priced. The service is efficient though uneducated. There are typically 5 or 6 house beers available. Even if they look busy, stop by because they turn over tables very quickly.

From steak to ribs to fish the menu at Sweetwater is fantastic. They brew their own beer and usually have several year-round selections. Of the year round selections the Pale Ale is definitely a crowd pleaser and its definitely a solid beer. The seasonal selections can be hit or miss, but recently their spring bock (or maibock) was surprisingly tasty. In summary its not a cheap place to eat and drink, but its also not going to break the bank. I live close by and probably go once a month. Great food and sometimes great beer.

Stopped in to try the beer. Food looked good, but I’d just eaten lunch. Good service at the bar - they try to make it friendly. Small amount of beer available, but of decent quality. Really liked the wit. Wouldn’t mind going back for a meal.

Only been once in the bar area but plenty of times in the dining area with family. Good amount of dining seating and a decent sized bar with three sides plus some outer seats. Fills up around happy hour and dinner rush. Only 5 of their house beers on tap with 2 staples and 3 rotating selections, I believe they have bottles of macros as well. House beers are average to good, occasionally a gem on tap. Food has always been top notch and the fish special is always a favorite of mine. No complaints with service, generally good and attentive. Come here with the food in mind and the beer mostly as a compliment.

Located in a strip mall. Always very crowded. Food is decent, staff is slow, and the beers are ok especially with the sizable pours on the samplers.
