                        The food is great. I love the Gatsby themed decor and Gabriella was very professional and prompt. I did have reservations and when I made them, I had requests that weren't followed; however, overall we love Sweetwater Chophouse.

                        We enjoyed a nice family dinner to celebrate a special occasion. The steaks were delicious as were our appetizers and sides! The spicy tuna roll and mushroom risotto are family favorites!

                        As usual the scallops and Brussel sprouts were great. On the special the fries were fabulous, but the reason for ordering the special - the steak - was well made but you can’t fix an inferior product.

                        I decided to surprise my husband on our 50th wedding anniversary. I talked with the manager and was able to reserve a table overlooking golf course, choose our menu courses with wine and dessert and have it all ready for us when we arrived. I was able to choose our waitress, Marcie and have it prepaid. Thank you to Sweetwater Chophouse for making our day special and a big thank you to Marcelina (Marcie) our waitress.

                        We love Sweetwater but we were put in a back room with a very large group of younger adults. They did nothing wrong but the noise level made it hard to enjoy ourselves. When we left it seems there would have been plenty of room to seat us elsewhere. They came after us or we would have suggested another area.

                        One of the best unknown, top level restaurants! 40oz Tomahawk challenge, well worth the $$! Destroyed it last night, on top of Oyster Rockefeller and 4 Crown XRs. Danielle was our server and nailed it! Hats off to the chef as well!

                        Food and service was excellent. My wife has many food allergies and we asked for her to have no seasoning on anything and the kitchen left off most seasoning but they did add black pepper and we had to send the dish back.

                        We had a company celebration for one of our teams who attained an important goal! They seated us at 2 long tables in their Speakeasy Room. The decor was Art Deco beautiful and the window views over the golf course are hard to find in NW Ohio. Our servers were especially wonderful & they have a very large menu of delicious menu items !

                        Service was exceptional. Food was very good. Loved the salad bar. They need to find music that fits the atmosphere rather than classic rock. That is not a reason to stay away. Great place to treat yourself to good food and a variety of craft beers. We will be back.
