Starting out as a livery and later converted to a home in late 1800s, the restaurant building has over 200 years of history in Perry. The white tablecloths, cloth napkins, hardwood floors,... More

I had a very delightful lunch meal on August 1. I was in town for a business meeting and I wanted to try something beyond the regular chain restaurants. The Swanson Restaurant was recommended by a colleague. My lunch portion was very generous and the service was superb. The sour cream biscuits were AWESEOME!! It was a nice summer day,... More

The best fried chicken, collard greens, and fried okra I have ever experienced! Very courteous, polite, and attentive wait staff. Absolutely unbeatable!

Only complainants were that the table was dirty from the previous guest (don't think they even wiped the clothe off), my knife had some leftover food on it, and that since we went at 1:30pm and they closed at 2pm we felt rushed and did not receive any of their...

Southern cooking at it's finest! The fried chicken, dressing and meatloaf are phenomenal! We will definitely recommend the place to others and be going again ourselves!

Visited this establishment a few weeks ago and had the greatest experience ever! I can't recall my servers name she was a short blonde girl! She had a sweet bubbly personality! I got the pot roast and it was the best I've had in a while! Do visit!

This restaurant is situated in a 200+ year old house. The waiters/waitresses make you feel very welcome and are always there to help. First they serve you these tiny, buttery, home made biscuits that are delicious. I had the roast chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, cornbread stuffing and squash casserole. My friend has the fried chicken and was informed it... More
