    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]

    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.

    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 me, order one!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Great service. Showed up with a group of 8. Out the door within an hour. I had the wings. Better than chain rest, and good value for $.

    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)!

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

    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.

    The absolute best wings next to Anchor Bar, the legendary bar in Buffalo, NY where they were first invented

    Get the Big Pig. Eat it with the onion. Don't kiss anybody. For dessert: the Hummer with Remy.
