Yet Sweetwater Tavern actually has great food as well as a patio and a casual, fun atmosphere. Mini burgers, lobster BLT, house-made soups and fresh salads are just a few of the menu options. There are also fried pickles, chili cheese tater tots and plenty of bar snacks. When a grilled cheese craving strikes, Sweetwater has its own version with tomato soup all for only $8.
