I moved to the area a few months ago and went here for lunch on a friend's recommendation. The first time I went I was pleased; however, the restaurant has gotten progressively worse to the point that I no longer eat here. This review will provide feedback on my last visit. When I arrived with a friend, we stood at... More

Highly recommended place when traveling through the area. Great drink menu, simple finger food, and love sitting outdoors on the patio overlooking the river. Service isn't always a 5 star, but is a bar that offers a variety of food, but personally go for drinks, atmosphere and the peace of the outdoors.

We had an appetizer dinner which was AWESOME!!! We started off with Gator Bites - awesome! Next the Seafood Gumbo - awesome! Next the Buffalo Shrimp - awesome! Of course, we had beers with the appetizers which was very good & cold! We split everything & we were TOTALLY satisfied! We were here a few years back & it was... More

Some yummy recipes unique to this establishment. I have not been disappointed with any of the meals I have had there. Mostly outside dining under roof. Lovely view. However, at times the service has left a lot to be desired (45 minute wait from the time the order was placed until it was delivered COLD!) " Too bad "attitude from... More

Our server never introduced himself, we put in an order for Gator Bites for an app with him and when it came out by another server he had no clue we ordered them. Not attentive. Hung out at a picnic table with about 6 of the staff while they all smoked cigarettes. Paid minimal attention to his other tables as... More

A lot to eat for the $$$$$ paid. Down south type cooking with a flair of elegance. Really enjoyed visiting there and will do it again.

We had dinner here with two other couples. Indoor and outdoor seatings are available. On a Saturday night, the waiters were a bit overwhelmed but did a good job covering for each other. The food was pretty good and I heard no complaints from around the table. But we all tried their banana foster bread pudding and was not impressed... More

We went to Swampy's on the recommendation of a friend who knew the area well. It was a really good meal, the service was fast and efficient without you getting the feeling that they wanted to get you in and out as soon as possible. We sat by the water and it was a perfect end to a perfect day.... More

After floating down Rainbow River, we were hungry. Saw Swampy's & decided to stop in...so glad that we did! Loved the porch seating...over looking the river, while enjoying some of the tastiest gator bites ever! The cole slaw was delish, & the sweet potato fries were cooked just right! Will definitely be back the next time we are in town!
