The food was delicious for all 4 of us and the atmosphere on the lake and with fish tanks and a giant alligator (stuffed) was fun. It was just a little higher priced, but we didn't mind since service was good and so was the food. Example: dinner with alligator, white fish & shrimp was $20. I plan on making... More

The food is above average. What really makes this place special is its location on the St. John's River, the screened in porch, and a wonderful April day. Definitely worth the visit.

They have a party room, don't book it. The room feels like a storage room. The room has a balcony that overlooks the river, but people go out there to smoke - we didn't like that. The rest of the restaurant has a county atmosphere. The portions are large, to match the prices, but the food was just average. The... More

Fun, casual place. Great seafood with a view of the river. Gator themed with a large gator hanging over the center of the main seating area.

We visited the Swamp House Grill on a nice Sunday afternoon. It was our first time, (we were out with friends on the river all morning). There was a group of 10 of us and it was great! We were told 30 minutes to be seated and sat in 15 minutes, our food took less than 30 minutes and everything... More

If your looking to chill by the water it fits the purpose. Disappointed that a sea food restaurant has no clams.

Very nice and fresh seafood, salmon and tuna, specials of the day, well prepared and tasty, the chef should get preparation time in order, side-orders were close to getting cold. Service was excellent, seating right by the waterside amazing, a welcome change from places looking all the same. Will definately go there again to have an enjoyable evening!

Visited the Swamp last Thursday for lunch with my best friend from Jacksonville. Her meal was good, mine was less than average. Had the BLT Fish sandwich, the bacon had to be sent back was not cooked enough, the toasted bread was too hard. We seem to have good meals and then bad at the Swamp. I wish they would... More
