Great ambiance. Excellent food choices. I had a grilled chicken salad which was excellent. My children had burgers. Good value, great location!

Came in last night for some food as we walked by. Really surprised with how good the food was and the atmosphere was brilliant. Lovely little pub. Would recommend for anyone who is looking for a great burger

“Awesome food!”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

We were having a surprisingly hard time finding something to eat outside Boston Common, when we started walking down an alley to a food court/mall. Luckily we passed the Sweetwater Cafe on the way down and stopped there instead. It's a solid college bar with good atmosphere, nice patio seating and delicious food. I had the steak tips and they were very good. One of our other guests loved the lobster mac and cheese.

One caveat - the bathrooms are definitely original. They're down the stairs and very small and cramped.

“Great bar food--pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

We came across this bar when we were walking from Boston Common to our hotel. We took a chance and stopped. The burgers and fish tacos were good. The beer selection was also good. We had an attentive server. For the price and location, this was better than expected.

“So Good, its hard to find a seat!!”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Good/average food at low costs. Good size beer/alcohol selection. Long wait to get a seat. Not enough seating for this place. Service is average. have to yell to them to get attention/service and let them know you're actually there
