Southern cooking

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

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!

Price 5/5 - The price compared to the portions are very good. I've been to some restaurants where I get half the portions for the same price or more. Food 5/5 -... More

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.
