“Trivia Night Great Success”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

We were there in March for their once-a-month Trivia Night and the only problem was the fact that we didn't have a bigger team. The place was full of eager participants and the host (Howard Rachelson ) was terrific. He had a nice variety of questions, both visual and written and all participants had a grand time. We had sliders for dinner that were delicious. This place is primarily a music hall and they have a very full schedule of events every month.

“Great place to enjoy after dinner”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We visited Sweet Water Music Hall on our visit to Mill Valley last week and had a great time. It was Valentines night and they were having a sold out show inside. Since we didn't have tickets, we sat outside on the patio. The night was lovely. The service was great. We would definitely go back.

“The heart and soul of a music town”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Sweetwater has been around for decades, and the music is always great. I love the open mic night, because we've got so much talent in this town to get up there and do whatever they're working on.
The old place just had popcorn to accompany your drinks. Now, in its larger, spruced up location, it has good food. The sliders are a treat, and the chef is doing a good job of sourcing locally. So glad people got together to save this gem!

“Good for music; bad for brunch”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We have seen many shows at the Sweetwater and, except for the noise of people talking at the bar, it is a great venue for music. As a Sunday brunch cafe, however, it leaves a lot to be desired. The food is pretty good, although on the expensive side. The real problem is the service - or lack thereof. For some reason that does not make sense, the cafe requires guests to stand in line to place their orders which are then delivered by a waitress. On a busy day, that can be a line of 10 or more people. We had ordered mimosas. They were duly prepared and left at the bar because the waitress was under 21 and could not serve them. Fine, except it would be nice if someone told us that! We ordered egg dishes, which were goo. However, the side of bacon only arrived after we went up to the counter to ask for it. Same with the 4 coffees. Finally, one person had a bowl of granola. $6.75. Really?? If the Sweetwater is going to run a cafe during the day, it needs to get its act together.
