I give this place five stars because it is THE only place in Santa Rosa that can properly pour a Guinness. And if you're a Guinness drinker, you know how important that is!
There's live music most nights of the week, and for the most part, it's a great place to go with friends and have a pint. Definitely a welcome departure from most of the other bars in the area since it has more of a pub/sports bar feel and will play good music on the sound system.

Quiet and low key. Nice place to relax with a Lagunitas. Only place in town with a shuffleboard

Sweet Spot, Lagunitas on tap, Yahtzee, shuffle board, the friendliest bartenders in town! This is the only place my friends and I go to down town, the atmosphere is very welcoming, music is awesome! The regulars really make the experience worth while, during NFL season or just during the Spelling Bee, they've got everything covered!

Great Service. Fabulous Wifi, Awesome collection of board games. Great Choices in Music. Cute Bartender. Food amazingly palatable for bar fare. Got poor quality Sushi take out at restaurant nearby and Sweet Spot's yummy nachos and savory cup of soup kicked it out of park in comparison.

Oh yeah, you can never go wrong with there BEER either !!!
Good music too!

Killer spot to watch a Giants Game. The owner is a big soccer fan, however he is cousins with Mike Krukow, so he is a huge Giants fan as well. The game is always on several flat screens, projected on a large projection screen and the audio is on too! I don't know of too many bars that let you listen to the game.

Lots of Lagunitas beer on tab, enough said.

This place is perfect for a sunday afternoon/evening or just for a casual beer any time of day. They have tvs with sports games on all day. A jukebox and even live music on ocassion. You can watch tv, play shuffle board, a board game or use their WIFI to surf the web. Large selection of beer on tap and by the bottle. Wine selection as well. And let's not forget the food, it is my favorite part. I love love love the food here, try the curry it is GREAT! The new bartender Jackson really does a good job of keeping everyones drinks flowing, music playing, good conversation and food orders timely. Lets face it, the ambiance is just the half of it, people go to a bar because of the bartenders. I will keep going back as long as he is behind the bar serving up the brews and good times.

Jackson is the best bartender ever. He makes everyone feel special.

We stopped by this bar on a whim and had the best time. Jackson our bartender was awesome!! He was super helpful and knowledgeable about the beer selection. All of our friends in our party absolutely loved him!! Jackson is great!! If in town stop by and say hi.

This was an awesome stop on my Cali vacation this year. Jackson (bartender) is AWESOME and just a cool guy overall. Great recommendations - both on their beer selection & what/where to go locally. Great experience. Very down to earth & highly recommended! (but not for the snooty type).

Happen to just stop by here because another bar that we originally wanted to go to was packed (thankfully) We would have never discovered this bar. The service is by far EVERYTHING to me when it comes to bars.. by far the best service i have ever had! We sat down outside not knowing
if they had to sit us or we could seat ourselves.. the bartender/server came out
immediAtely after we seated ourselves and was so kind and helpful when we werent sure what kind of beer to order. She really knew what she was talking about and was SUPER helpful with a good attitude. We even had to ask her name because i felt as thought she needed to be recognized. Carrie :) THE BEST service..I didnt eat here however ,but if i did she could have probably served me shit and i would have still wrote a good review because of the most amazing service i ever had! (hahahaha)

I went here back in December with a few coworkers after our company's Christmas party. We arrived just at midnight when the bartender managed to squeeze us all in.

Well, almost all of us. One of our coworkers was already pretty good, so the bartender refused to serve him. Our buddy started getting really angry and frustrated, to downright rude with her.

Annie, the bartender, handled the situation extremely well and was super friendly to us all, despite our friend being a huge jerk to her.

I'd gladly come back again for service like that.

The Sweet Spot is filled with fun games, good drinks and decent food. Not to mention they represent the Giants on their walls - great atmosphere! It's just always been the place I can count on having a good time at. I have only good things to say about this place.

One of my favorite bars in SR for a couple of reasons. Shuffleboard! The only full sized table around. I've spent many a late night cheering at that wonderful table. Just leave your ID's behind and it's all yours! There's a couple of flat screens, jukebox, a pinball machine, putting green and liars dice available as well, fun for all! The pub style food is quite good, the wings are some of the hottest and most delicious I've had in a while. The beers on tap are all standard local goodness, mostly Lagunitas. I met the bartender named Danny and he was one of the nicest guys I've ever encountered running a bar, outstanding service! You can always count on enjoying yourself with good friends at the S.S!

This place continues to win me over. Great location right on 4th street and dynamic staff. Jackson is sure to lure you in with a fabulous and intriguing conversation. Definitely a go to spot.

Sweet Spot Pub & Lounge - Santa Rosa, CA, United States. The taps!

Love the Spot! This place is down home goodness... right on 4th street with a big patio to watch the world go by. Love that they let dogs in and watching the games here is always a good time. Had the fish tacos last night - so good! The homemade Caribbean hot sauce is HOT so tread lightly ;)

I wish I knew the name of our bartender, but he was awesome! He was accommodating and personable and gave us the happy hour price even though it was a couple min passed :). Very cool atmosphere, with a juke box , board games if we want and a shuffle board in the back.

They only serve beer and wine but the bartenders know them well. We came here while we were waiting to eat at Russian River, after the awful experience at RRB we wish we didn't leave the Sweet Spot.

We actually came back the next day and brought our friends. This will be a place we will be frequenting often when were in town.

Looking for a rain contingency, and fun to be had, I found John at Sweet Spot Pub who put together a great buffet for our birthday day party. We had a shuffle board tournament, games and a great time. John and Jackson did everything to turn this rainy day event into great fun.

Very accommodating and fun! Jackson and the owner were friendly and let us sample their beers, would recommend!
