If your traveling south on I-75 and getting near Perry, GA and you are tired of the interstate fare, veer off the big road a mile or so east. Search out The Swanson Restaurant in quaint downtown Perry. You will be pleasantly surprised with their Southern offerings. I opted for fried chicken with cornbread dressing and baby lima beans (very... More

While taking a stroll of downtown Perry Ga. We came across this place to have lunch. While we weren't expecting anything spectacular we were pleasantly surprised! Everything was AWESOME! We had the blackened tilapia with a side salad and squash casserole. It was the best fish I have ever eaten. Honestly, it couldn't have been better. The service was excellent.... More

As many other reviewers have stated, the fried chicken is excellent! If you have never tried it you owe it to yourself to do so! My family has diverse tastes so it is great to go to a restaurant where we can all get something we enjoy. Service and food are both always top notch!

Had the best meal of my entire trip to Perry here. Get the fried chicken -- you will not be disappointed. Service was excellent and I highly recommend it. Just sad I didn't get the chance to go back a second time.

We visited on Saturday night and were advised of the wait time. They were extremely busy and I now know why...I had one of the best meals of my life that night! The chicken was crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. My collard greens were seasoned perfectly and the macaroni and cheese was just like... More
