If you are not familiar with southern cooking, you may not like this excellent example of same. A reservation would be good, as there will be a long wait otherwise. Everything my wife and I had was VERY tasty. It was just on the verge of being oversalted, so don't reach for a salt shaker automatically. We loved our meals,and... More

The Swanson Restaurant is in an old house and is not extremely easy to find. However, it is worth the trouble. The food was delicious and plenty of it. Very nice staff also.

No complaints; the okra was fried just right. We selected different entrees including meat loaf, fried chicken and fried pork chops. The entrees were good and had the home cooked taste. The... More

I guess I am in the minority here but I found the Swanson very underwhelming. Don't get me wrong...the food was excellent and the service was above average. But the wait for the food was obscene. Maybe it was just an off night or something, but it took an hour to get our food, and we were not alone. We... More

Great atmosphere. Food is amazing and plentiful. Great prices. ..highly recommend. Our hotel actually recommended it and I am so glad they did. It was beautifully decorated for the holidays and is registered as a historic place. It is Perry's first school.

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.
