The collard green soup and mini biscuits were incredible. Don't was your time on chain restaurants just of 75.. snake your way in about 2 miles and... read more

This is a "meat and three" with variety in the menu that's above the usual cut for such. The building is charming with an interesting history. I was seated in a room at the left rear; quite small with tables CLOSE together. Unfortunately men at adjacent tables had BIG voices and I could hear all they had to say. Good... More

My husband and I were in Perry on business at Mossy Creek Soap Shop. I had read about the restaurant and wanted to try local Southern food. The food was excellent: chicken and dressing, collard greens, squash casserole, sweet potato casserole and green beans. Sweet tea was in abundance. Server was a very polite and pleasant young man.

Just stopped by for dinner on drive home to FL. Short drive from I-75, and well worth it ! Everything here is the real deal. Must get the collard green soup. Reminds me very much of the Spanish bean soup at the Columbia in Ybor City but this is better, can't even believe I said that but true. Do your... More

Delicious southern cooking in a charming old world Victorian house. The service was friendly and prompt. Loved the fried chicken, collard greens and dumplings. The setting was casual - just what we needed stopping in from our Florida-Georgia road trip. Will be back again for sure.

The Swanson Restaraunt is so good! Best southern style food in middle ga. All the vegetables are very well seasoned and they have the best fried chicken and fried green tomatoes! Delicious! Definitely recommend if you're in the area.

The Swanson Restaurant is set inside a lovely victorian home in downtown Perry and is only a couple of miles from the National Fairgrounds and Agricenter. Our group tried items such as pot roast, fried chicken, fried pork chops, and chopped steak and they were all very good. The side vegetables are also very good and my husband raved about... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal with friends and family. From the fried chicken and okra to meat loaf, a vegetables plate, salad, and those melt in your mouth muffins, everyone was pleased with their meal. We called ahead although there isn't really a reservation list so that we would be put next on the seating list when we arrived. There... More
