What is nice about this restaurant is whether you're a tourist or a local, you feel welcome. The owner is on premises (which is amazing these days) and the staff is knowledgeable about their dishes and helpful. The view is unparalleled as it is directly on the St. John's river. They have river tours you can take, a gift shop,... More

I typically go here by boat, so it's nice they have slips available for their customers. We usually sit downstairs on the deck, which is nice with the live music. The service is pretty good overall, but when they get busy on a nice weekend day the service can get a little slow. Overall I love the deck, live music,... More

Swamp House is our favorite place to take out-of-town guests but not for the food but for the view and its location on the St. Johns River. It is very open and can tend to be noisy especially when there is live music but it is a fun atmosphere.

I live this place on a Saturday afternoon. You have to have patience and some extra spending money though. They are understaffed outside and beer/cocktails are pricy. I still love this place though, it's one of a kind.

45 minutes for food to arrive when the restaurant is half full is not acceptable. Food was good, nothing to write home about.

This restaurant is all about the atmosphere. The food is hit or miss. Seems to be deteriorating. Go for a drink and the view of the river,

Lodge type setting right on the St Johns just off Lake Monroe. Nestled at the end of a road in a camp ground/resort, we were able to listen to live music while enjoying some of the afternoons college football games. Menu was a bar menu with a riverfront flavor. Food was decent not great, but the atmosphere was phenomenal! If... More

We eat at the Swamp house pretty regularly. Always a great place to bring out of town guests & relatives. The view is great, but sometimes the loud music interferes with the serenity of the river. If you don't like loud music dine early.Pricey for the value. One evening it took 45 min. to get an appetizer, water & utensils.... More

We went to Swamp House to listen to a local entertainer GT hopefully have a good lunch. We were greeted by a very friendly young lady who also served us. She made great suggestions on the food. Food was great. It might be a little bit on the high side for what you are getting but free entertainment and the... More
