Sweetwater Tavern Restaurant Review: Despite the faux Western décor mimicking a frontier barroom---sort of---this restaurant serves anything but rustic, frontier foods. We love its big salads, but most people probably favor the very big entrées starring pork chops, filet mignon and rib-eye steaks, plus assorted seafood dishes, served with the kitchens luscious basil redskin mashed potatoes or other sides of your choice. The cook also whips up a treacherously delicious white chocolate cheesecake that puts other desserts to shame. One of the notable draws of this restaurant is its microbrews prepared on-site. These provide some of the freshest and liveliest beers around---and consequently, one of the liveliest bar scenes. Also located at 3066 Gatehouse Plaza, Falls Church, VA, 703-645-8100.
