Good food, great view

It's a big restaurant with several levels on the St. John's River and is accessible by boat or car. The food is your normal "bar food" with burgers, fish sandwiches, wings, etc. for lunch. The dinner menu looks interesting but my only three experiences here have been for lunch. They have live... read more

We were visiting friends in the Orlando area. They took us out on the river in their boat. Called into the Swamp House. How cool is that....right on the river front. What a great place. I had a burger (as you do your 1st day in U.S.) It was superb. There was a great choice of beers. The IPA is... More

The dinner menu looks interesting but my only three experiences here have been for lunch. They have live music on the weekends and nice cold beer.

Went to the Swamp House about 1:15 on a Monday (June 2015). Fantastic burger. Very juicy and huge! Service was fast and friendly. (Thank you Jesse) I do wish they had sweet potato fries though... Great place to sit with friends and enjoy the river view... Wouldn't hesitate to go back. I read a few complaints about slow service. We... More

Good service, good fish & chips (with generous portions), fairly good (and fresh) fried shrimp. Corn fritters (aka hushpuppies) good. Coleslaw needed help (bland, but improved with addition of salt and vinegar). Reasonably priced.

My companion and I enjoyed lunch recently at the Swamp House Grill in DeBary; it has become a fave spot for me in east Central Florida. The food is fabulous and the service is consistently good. I had my usual: the blackened seafood trio. I enjoy that one so much, I rarely order anything else. This gem is just a... More

It can be a bit warm in there but it's Florida. Foods good, can walk around outside towards the water. Nice area.

This casual seafood grill overlooks the waterway, and is a relaxed and fun way to enjoy an old Florida feel. Boats can pull up to enjoy drinks at the tiki bar. The blackened fish are very good, and so are the catfish nuggets and fish n chips. Nothing fancy but a nice night out.

The meals are good, but the view is excellent. you can sit and watch the boats go up and down the St. Johns from your open air table. a great way to spend your lunch or dinner time.
