“If you love sports this is the place to be. www.MyVi.Net/TerryVi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012

If you love sports this is the place to be. Many huge TV screens to watch your favorite sports on. When the Florida Gators play this place is packed. Everything I have ordered to eat has been great. The only reason I did not give Swap Restaurant five stars is the price is a little above average. You are paying for theatmosphere, which is awesome.

If you want to dine with the Gator student population, this is the place. Good burger.

“Gathering Place across from football stadium”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

The food is OK, but most people go there to drink and meet people.

“GROSSLY OVERPRICED”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

We've been wanting to visit this iconic Hogtown icon for years. This time, tailgating right across the street for the Orange and Blue game, we made it. Only a few seconds wait, and the hostess seated us on the front patio, a nice location. But we had to endure people hanging around waiting to pounce on the first available table, bypassing the hostess station, that was annoying. We were just there for a few drinks before the game. Wait staff was good. We ordered chips and Salsa with a cheese dipping sauce for nine bucks. Chips were average, salsa was horrible, but spicy cheese cauce was great. We were disappointed to find out our Bloody Marys were ten bucks a pop, since they were bland, didn't taste fresh, were served in plastic cups and had no garnish at all; no celery, not even a lonely olive. We left feeling violated and tourist trapped...
