Sweetwater Tavern is located in the heart of Detroit's historic district with roots that date back to the mid-1800s as one of the city's first buildings. First as a hotel, then evolving with the city to become a restaurant and bar, Sweetwater has been known for its authentic homemade food for thirty years.
Sweetwater is within walking distance of the Renaissance Center, Hart Plaza, Ford Field and Comerica Park. Three shuttle buses provide free rides to all Tiger, Lion and Red Wing games, as well as major concert events. Come for the food stay for the friends, Sweetwater has accrued a reputation over 30 years for its distinctive, succulent taste — compelling chicken wings. Owner, Jeffrey Cain, mixing both southern and northern cooking experience, has developed secret recipes for wings, ribs and other Detroit favorites to a perfection of enticement and satisfaction.
