“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

My husband and I dined here for lunch and ate the turkey wrap with the she crab soup and a burger with fries. We sat out on the patio, it was covered since it's not quite warm yet and the atmosphere was nice. Everything was really good and our server Krys was excellent and attentive. Would definitely recommend you check it out!

“Nice dinner, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We had eaten at restaurants within walking distance of our hotel so far on our trip, but Sunday night brought limited choices and rain. So we decided to drive out to the Marriott and try Swampers. The restaurant/bar area is cozy with televisions showing golf and football while we were there. Our server was prompt as soon as we walked in. My husband ordered the trout, and I had the soup, salad, and 1/2 sandwich. The trout was tasty and cooked perfectly with good seasoning. The she crab soup was wonderful, the mixed greens were standard, but fresh, and the pimento cheese BLT was such a treat. I would visit again just for the she crab soup or BLT--both very memorable. Our server was friendly and helpful, too. The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 on the rating is the atmosphere. It was cozy, but a little worn. It seems to be a good meeting place for business groups and golfers. However, the food is good no matter what your reason for visiting!

Thank you so much for your kind words! The She Crab Soup is a local favorite and the BLT is definitely a favorite around the hotel! We are excited to announce that we are currently undergoing a refresh which will include new carpets and other upgrades to give Swampers a fresh look. Thanks again for dining with us. We look forward to seeing you again!
