A rustic structure turned into a restaurant. It has been there close to 6yrs. This has a great relaxing atmosphere.

This is where we go when we want a special local dinner. Casual enough for families and lovely for couples. It is especially nice in the summer when the deck is open.

Four of us went for an anniversary dinner at Sweetwater Bistro. Very welcoming! We all had different entrees, from chicken to beef to pork. Along with the scallop and crab cakes, everything was absolutely delicious! The staff was very attentive without hovering over us. We will definitely be back. Btw the accompanying sides were so good!
