And lets face every girl that has worked there that claims all these things happened... has been a whore. Sorry but its the truth. You put yourself out there, got shot down and now see a reason to say that they deserve this. Stop starting rumors. You dont work there. Be done with it and move on with your life already!

Hello to all of the idiots that feel like they know the Sweeney Brothers personally to talk about them like you have. Let's make this short and sweet. Mia's restaurant is not, a family restaurant. If it were a family restaurant it would probably state it in the sign on the building. It is a bar that serves food. Everyone knows that Mia's has a reputation for underage drinking, that's a fact. These underager's have fake ID's. To all the bartenders reading this, how many of you let the ID slide? Aren't you at just the same amount of fault as the person who owns the place? To the female servers who have worked there, didn't you think it was cool that your boss let you drink? Aren't you at just the same about of fault as the person who gave you the drink? And did you refuse that drink, or did you drink it? I believe that every single person who has ever worked at this place knows exactly what I am talking about, and you are at just as much fault as the owners. I am going to agree with everyone out there and say that yes, the 2 Sweeney brothers both have tempers. But, when it comes right down to it, they would do anything for anyone. I believe that they are good people. For those who say they are scum, you were probably at equal responsibility for all of the accusations made at the Sweeney's. Good luck to Mike and Chad I hope everything is resolved soon, but we'd all like to see a turn around from you guys.

I am and have been a friend of Sweeney family since high school. Since then I have become a successful Business Owner in Orchard Park and have been for years prior to and after the opening of both Mia's locations. Further I am a father of four, and a patron of both establishments since their inception. I would not hesitate to bring my family to either establishment. Both Mike Sweeney and Chad Sweeney great business owners and great people.I have in over 15 years never, ever witnessed evidence of any alleged ill behavior, in fact it is the exact opposite of the way I know them. They are family first people, and believe me they treat everyone like family. Honorable and good people is what they are.

They should print some of these comments out and hand them to the judge.

I am sure that the Sweeneys are honorable and good people when they are not burying thier fists into peoples faces or violently tossing 110 lb. girls around (according to the BuffNews).

After reading all these messages, it seems as if the owners noticed all the postings and had their friends chime in. Not sure if this is the best PR move. Let the police deal with this and we can all find out what the true situation is.

I have worked at both Mias and have never EVER witnessed any of the BS that some of these people are sayin...NEVER....yes its a bar...fights happen! but REMEMBER a fight is between 2 people they dont just start on one side!! IDIOTS!! did you ever stop and think about the family when making these cruel comments..no...just out to hurt them....how dare you!! mike and chad are both great guys!! and also great bosses...i worked both shifts before open and close and never seen any "ouside car activity" never has a girl been raped,never has a girl been drugged,never has any one been forced to drink!! and with underage drinking, are you kidding me? that shit happens EVERYWHERE!! why dont we bring up the numerous bars up and down the strip of OP that has got into trouble for that, or all over western new york! it happens! you all have had a fake id at one point dont lie to yourself! and i think its pretty funny now too how yes i used to see the OP police in Mias numerous times drinking and doing things im sure their wives wouldnt approve of!!! maybe i should start naming names and pointing fingers at them!!! people make me sick!! i still go to mias and always will...i hope the people spreding the rumors and lies are ashamed of themselves...OP police were NEVER any angels...DONT let them fool you!! they are the real scumbuags!! i hope this BS is a cleared up soon for the sweeney brothers they do not deserve any of this!!!

Wow i cant believe some of the things that I am reading right now if only people had there stories straight first before posting nothing but crazy crazy RUMORS I actually am sitting at my computer laughing at how ridiclous some of these comments are and i grantee these people have no idea who the Sweeney brothers are or they are ex employees that have gotten fired because of there immature ways. The Sweeney brothers have been nothing but good to me and would do anything for anyone that needed help no matter what time it is. And for the OPP station they need to get there stories straight first before taking action since i personally have seen many of there cops in the establishment whether they were there to eat or drink. And for the Buffalo news you really should'nt be printing stories unless you have all your facts straight you guys have now turned into a tabloid magizine with all the lies you have released i mine as well go to the store to go and pick up an Enquire if i wanted to be told lies about people. I will still continue to go into both these resturants and show my support because the food is amazing and the owners have always showed nothing but respect for every customer in there. If you don't personally no these brothers you should keep your comments to yourself and mind your own business and go on your merry way.
