“…My entree was a NY strip with their signature steak sauce, which I must say, even rivals Peter Luger’s. The steak made my meal. It was cooked perfectly and really made me want to come back here…”

“Sweet Waters is a one of a kind restaurant in NJ. Great food, great wine list, and great service. Everything about it is fantastic.”

What a pleasant surprise. We had never been here before. Excellent food and service. The manager and all waiters, etc. make you feel as if you are a regular returning special customer. Just a wonderful Saturday night dinner for the two of us. We cannot wait to return and enjoy another superb meal. Thanx again..”

“My filet mignon steak was cooked perfectly and the oysters were to die for! Service was outstanding as well as the ambiance. I highly recommend this place if you’re craving a nice steak or if you’re celebrating a special occasion with a small group of people!”

Trip Advisor

“We were in Westfield for the afternoon and decided to try this steakhouse. The restaurant is very clean and has a warm upscale steakhouse feel to it. The waiter and staff are extremely attentive and are constantly changing silverware and cleaning the table. We ordered the bacon appetizer, 2 salads and 2 of the marinated skirt steaks. Everything was delicious. The skirt steak did not disappoint. It was full of flavor and perfectly cooked. We had enough food for a family of 4 with some leftovers still.”

“Mussels first rate. Crab cake slightly spicy. Filet perfectly cooked and tender. Iced tea fresh… Want perfect service go to Sweet Water…”

“Westfield has many great dining choices, but this in the only Steak restaurant. Sweet waters does not disappoint! There are not too many steak restaurants in Central NJ, so this is a good choice. Prices in line for the quality and service is fine, leave time to find parking…”

“If you’re into “dining” you need to know about this restaurant. Sweet Waters Steak House in Westfield offers wonderful ambiance – first class service and most importantly great food! The cozy atmosphere in the dining rooms provide a relaxed setting not found in most restaurants today. For starters Sweet Waters entices you with a wide variety of appetizers along with the unique opportunity to create your own shell fish tasting (Raw Bar). It’s amazing – you put the pieces together selecting from a wide variety of fresh oysters, (including Kumamoto, the aristocrats of oysters) Little Neck Clams and Colossal Shrimp. The value proposition here is unique; pricing is by the ‘piece’ so you control the portion size and the price. A rare opportunity in any restaurant. Naturally Sweet Waters features an extensive choice of Steaks and Chops. The quality is superb with my favorite being a 21 Day Dry Aged Sirloin. All steaks and chop dishes include a choice of several potatoes or hand cut fry options. In addition to the traditional side dishes “Bette’s secret recipe Baked Macaroni & Cheese is a must try!
Desserts at Sweet Waters are as sweet as the restaurant name implies. On my last visit I enjoyed Bette’s Rice Pudding – it was sensational! The menu also features a large selection of traditional favorites including Chocolate Soufflé (targeted for my next visit) or Chocolate Fudge Tower. As Rachel Ray would say Yummm! Bottom line for a wonderful “adult” dining experience featuring great service and superb food visit Sweet Waters Steak House – you’ll be glad you did!”

“… If you like a quiet atmosphere, great service and excellent food, this would be the place. Our waiter was attentive and also patient with us, as we ordered course by course. After dinner we headed over to the bar and ended up having a great conversation with the owner…”

“May not be the most flashy or trendy location however, the food and service are exceptional. The starters are excellent, try the Caesar salad or crab cakes. The porterhouse is cooked to perfection, the meat has great texture, exudes great flavor, a treat to the last bite. I would recommend not using the dipping sauce it kills the flavor, do order the whipped sweet potatoes and the sauteed mushrooms . The wait staff is attentive, courteous and avoid smothering the guests. If you want an authentic steak experience without the the flash, try this place out, you won’t regret it.”
“Have been there several times. Whether for just for appetizers and drinks, dinner or an event, each time the food, and especially the service, were excellent and well worth the price. Anyone who does not like this restaurant does not have a taste for quality… Keep up the great work.”
“My favorite NJ restaurant! The food is delicious! The service is impeccable! Best of all, the owner treats you like royalty when you enter!”

“Sweet Waters is by far the best steak house around. The steaks are cooked to perfection every time and the raw bar is A1. The wait staff are courteous and attentive and always ready to please. I highly recommend the Southern Comfort Old Fashion !!!! Great place for a quiet dinner for two or for family gatherings. Keep up the good work!!”
“Sweet Waters is the Best….We had my Mom’s 80th birthday party here. There were 27 of us, and everyone was very satisfied. We started off with appetizers of Shrimp Cocktail or Fried calamari. The shrimp were huge and moist, cook just right. The Fried Calamari was the freshest I’ve ever had. The Caesar salad was next, and it was excellent. And for the entrees, Rib Eye steak or Chilean Sea Bass. The steaks were tender and cooked to perfection. The Chilean Sea Bass very fresh and topped with a vanilla cream sauce, it was magnificent. I can’t say enough good things about this place. Do you know how hard it is to satisfy 27 people, and this place did it with ease. I highly recommend this place.”
“Love this restaurant! I had the porterhouse for two and was not disappointed. Flintstone sized and we still took home leftovers. Each of the Sides are better than the next. Try the Mac and cheese or slab bacon. I’ve been to Luger’s and Sparks. Don’t tell me about prices. Sweet Waters is fairly priced and the staff aims to please. Ask for the table next to the fireplace for cozy atmosphere for two.”
“I travel 40 minutes to dine at Sweet Waters whenever i can; the food is always delicious. Our steaks are cooked to our personal preferences and always tender & tasty, and the desserts are off-the-charts fabulous ! The wait staff is professional& always courteous & attentive, and the martinis are…WICKED GOOD!!”

“…To begin, the staff was very courteous, allowing us to enjoy our pre-dinner drinks without pressuring us to order and move on. We shared the slab bacon app, which was on-point delicious. Probably the best thick-cut steakhouse bacon I’ve had. I didn’t really care for the waitering of our dinner rolls, though. Would have been nice just to have a basket with the fresh bread (which was very tasty, btw). I got the aged sirloin topped with mushrooms and onions. It was served at a perfect med-rare, while the veggies + baked sweet potato were also cooked perfectly. I haven’t had a sirloin like this in a while. It was savory….almost buttery. Perfectly trimmed, with not too much gristle. My friends all enjoyed their dishes (the cowboy cut looked to be the big hit). The night conclude with some coffee and conversation. Again, we were not pressured to head out once we were finished…”

“…Typically dark, cozy, comfortable Steakhouse decor Restaurant – reliable, consistent good food with an acceptable wine list. Always good for a date night.
A good food selection – even vegetarians find a decent amount of non Steak meals.Wine prices are decent…”
” Food is always consistently good. Great steaks and sauces. Wine list is very good as well. My 11 year old daughter thinks the food there is “fantabulous”! Selection and quality of sides are excellent.”

“Excellent steak … and an affordable wine list will keep me coming back. Service was very attentive, although the restaurant was not very full when I was there. ambiance was laid back which was a nice change from the hectic NYC steak houses… SW has a great bacon app and good value wine offerings…”

” nice ambiance…excellent fillet mignon, whipped sweet potatoes and vegetables, excellent service, relaxing, very formal… would recommend”

” Soups and appetizers are excellent at this steak house where we’ve never eaten the steak. Shrimp and Calamari appetizer is superb. Caesar salad is meticulously prepared. Sauteed vegetable sides very, very good. Their onion soup is like liquid steak with caramelized onions. They also bake their own wonderful onion rolls. Some very good things are going on in this kitchen…”

” This was not a Manhattan steakhouse but was not far behind. Cozy and attractive, convenient, easy commute and very good food. Not more expensive than you would expect for a class steakhouse…. it;s worth the trip”

” Very cozy setting, beautiful town. Easy parking, Food was very good, This is a GREAT place if you live near by and want a Manhattan steakhouse feel without the commute.”
