    Sweetwater is the bizness! My faves are the beer battered chicken strips, seasoned fries, fish and chips, and purple rains. Beyond that, you're on your own.

    In Detroit on business and looking for wings. Loved this place! Wings have a kick and I will be going back again soon! The ribs will b next on my list!

    Just left from returning an order. Ribs were over cooked and wings were old. Would not recommend ribs again...

    The very BEST Reuben Sandwich I've ever had! If you know me and my tendencies to "creep out" over certain meats you'd understand what a supreme compliment this is....trust me, order one!

    Great food, great vibe. Service is a bit lax when they're busy, though.

    Really good wings. The service isn't that great but it stays busy so it can be expected

    Sweetwater is where I take people to blow their minds. Their wings are on a level of their own. I will never go to Buffalo Wild Wings after eating their wings.

    Everyone talks about the wings, but the ribs are where it's at. Get a full slab and they throw in wings for free. Really friendly atmosphere and cozy spot for lunch or dinner any time.

    These are my favorite wings anywhere. I struggle to eat wings anywhere else because they are not the same. Get the Wing and Strip combo with seasoned fries.

    This place is no frills, but it has a reputation for solid food and beer in the bottle. Why do diners really love it though? Four words: Best Wings In Detroit. [Eater 38 Member]

    All the food is delicious, however I'm partial to the Cobb salad with fried chicken instead of grilled :)

    Sweetwater is only good food if you're already drunk before you arrive.. PS. Don't eat the green beans (they're from Save-a-Lot)!

    Best Wings, plus great atmosphere. The music from the jukebox will make you think you are at a concert. Great food.
