A friend and I went to the Swanson House for lunch yesterday. I had the Fried chicken, okra and squash casserole. Everything tasted like grandma used to make! Delicious!! I wanted to try the bread pudding but was too full from lunch. Our server was very attentive but not overbearing. Great service. I loved the biscuits as well. Great place... More

This is a nice little restaurant in small town Georgia. Awesome food - biscuits were great, chicken and dumplings were awesome, Mac-cheese was great. Pricing was excellent. Place was clean and our waitress - Autumn did a great job. If you every stop in Perry, GA. You need to give them a try.

I would highly recommend this restaurant! The food was home cooked Southern cooking! Very clean and fast service and very very friendly! It is a local place with a lot of history! It is in a very old house with a lot of character!! I had the fried chicken and my husband had the chicken and dumplings! They also bring... More

Newly renovated and looks great. Food is always very good, well presented. Service is usually good but sometimes they need a little wave to be reminded to come your way.

I was in town to make a quick sales call with a colleague from New Jersey (bless his heart!) and I wanted him to experience real Southern cooking. This was certainly adequate. It was enough to wow my Yankee friend, but this Southerner knew it didn't far overshoot the mark. Prices were reasonable and staff was delightful, but the food... More

I had a lovely dining experience sitting on the front porch of the Swanson. It was a very southern experience. The wait staff was extremely caring-"yes ma'am and no ma'am" about everything. The fried green tomatoes were good and the salmon croquettes were good also. The prices are very reasonable. The most flavorful was the bread pudding with Carmel sauce.... More

We came to Perry, Ga. for the Mossy Creek Festival and had dinner at The Swanson on Friday, October 17, 2014. Our first impression was of the old home itself. We noted the tables on the wrap around porch and since it was a nice evening, decided we would eat out on the porch. Our waitress was friendly and delivered... More

This past Sunday I was feeling homesick for some good old southern country home cooked food. I had heard about The Swanson House and decided to try it out. I am so glad that I did! I had the glazed ham, Mac and Cheese, and Fried Okra. My son had the Fried Chicken, Mac and Cheese and Green beans. Plus... More

Although a long-time local, I had never been to this area standard. Being a southern food fan I was excited to go. However, the meal was disappointing. Now the atmosphere is great a restored old house right in downtown Perry. You couldn't ask for more old southern charm, hospitality and excellent service. Now the food was ok. I had high... More

Visited the mossy grass festival and came to this restaurant for dinner. Lovely house. Weather was great, so we chose to eat outside. Fried green tomatoes were sooo good. Fried chicken batter was out of this world! Shrimp basket and fries were plentiful and good as well. Staff very pleasant.
