Wonderful dinner at the Swedes

Really enjoyed dinner at the Swedes. It's an attractive place, well decorated, and felt open, as it should since the windows had no glass. The food was really good and nicely priced. Our server was handsome, articulate, and professional. We will certainly go back again.

The atmosphere is lively with a great bar (upstairs) and closely placed tables with great service. The owner, Morgan, is originally from Sweden and is a delightful host. The food was delicious, including carpaccio, caesar salad, and a variety of entrees. Dessert was great, too. Fun, delicious, reasonable priced for what you get. And the drinks were good, too.

Very good service and diverse menu. My selections were both delicious. I was disappointed that they did not have the lobster bisque which is why I ventured in. Also the menu out on the front entrance did not match the one I was given which slightly irritated me. All in all a nice experience and I will return.

Well prepared meals, fine service, great wine. I especially enjoyed the prawn salad, the risotto, and the fresh local seafood

Took the opportunity to have dinner tonight at Swedes, and it was just delicious. I had the Pork filet special with red wine, and can honestly say it was so tender and moist, perhaps one of the best I've eaten. Definitely put Swedes on your dinner list when in PVR!

Hadn't been there in years but stopped with a friend and was pleasantly surprised. Ambience was wonderful. Varied menu. Had a great dinner and will definitely go back.
