Unexpected Pleasure

Obscure location next to trailer park made me wonder if we made a bad decision. Wrong. This little gems on the St Johns River was great. Wonderful view, great service and good food. Try the gator bite tacos with draft Rolling Rock. Mahi sandwich was fresh and good. We will be back!

We arrived Monday night at around 7 pm. The restaurant did not seem to busy and a waitress told us to sit were ever we liked. We took a seat by river and after about 20 minutes we realized that we may never get service since no one had ever greated us. We Decided To Leave And On Our Way... More

By far the best!, arrived10 minutes before the kitchen closed and was very accommodated by staff. They did not make us feel pressured at all. The bartender made super dining recommendations, which were fantastic!! Only, regret.. Couldn't get back there before we left the area!!! Loved it!!!

My husband and I went out for a relaxing dinner at the river and was delighted when we arrived at the Swamp House Riverfront Grill. It's not located where you might happen by on a leisurely drive unless you're going to the St. John's River via Debary, Florida. When you arrive ask for a table where Landon will be your... More

This is a great place to have lunch and watch boats go by on the river. We had the fish and chips and a burger. Everything was very tasty, our server was friendly, and the food arrived in a reasonable time. No complaints. Would definitely go back.

A good placer to take friends for a taste of Florida, including gator. Have a beer and food while enjoying a sunset on the St. Johns River. The menu choice is good especially for fish lovers (which we are). The eco boat tour from this marina is the best in the area.

I have been to this grille seeveral times since they are right next to the St Johns River and it is only about 2 miles from my winter home in DeBary. Typically I would get fish or alligator (unique for a Colorado boy) but felt like trying a burger and quite honestly they are about the best burgers I have... More

This was my first time to the area. I liked the location with the water views. Too bad it was a gloomy weekend when I was there but I'm always a sucker for a waterfront view. Normal "beach style" menu. I had the Ahi Tuna Appetizer and Gumbo, both were good. Gumbo was packed with chicken and sausage which I... More
