A local chain around Northern Virginia, Sweetwater Tavern concentrates on making great food and beer. Order the sampler of beers and try a little of all their local specialty brews. The menu has something for everyone, and is not your run-of-the-mill menu. The ribs are fantastic and I usually get the drunken ribeye. No one can say no to the different tastes in the breadbasket either. The restaurant does not do to go orders, because they are afraid the food does not travel well and they do not want you to have a bad impression of the restaurant....but there is plenty in each meal to take home a doggy bag.
