Aug 2019
This is truly a dive bar.....now if you like dive bars, this if a fun place.....get beer/drink selections. Live music on weekend afternoons and evenings. Saw a terrific band there last saturday...hopping place, great crowd, beach atmosphere, lots to do in the area. Food was reasonable....lots of memorabilia, pictures, posters hanging on the walls. Kick back, relax, hang out kinda place!!

The music was great, atmosphere like no other. Drinks top notch. Best cheeseburgers on town! Waitress very pleasant. If you go to San Juan Capistrano you have to go to Swallows

Want to know what it was like to go into a drinking establishment from the past? This is the place, it as old-time charm - yet serves a great a great drink. The entertainment act that appear at the Swallows Inn are terrific - go there for a great experience.

If you want some country dancing and some eclectic people and food then this is your spot. Always pretty easy going, very fun atmosphere, and not just for bikers or cowboys, or just young people. All types are always welcome here it seems

An old favorite...
Jul 2017 • Couples
We actually went with our adult son last Tuesday for their famous "Taco Tuesday". We had our excellent tacos, a margarita, also very nice, and then later a beer. It was just busy enough, music was playing and there was a very pleasant atmosphere. The cook is also the server and he was very friendly and made everything was just how we liked it.
My wife and I have been going to the Swallows for about 40 years. I was there once when a cowboy rode his horse into the bar. The decor is really interesting. There is something hanging on every inch of the ceiling and the walls are covered with items of local history. San Juan has changed so much since I was a kid, but the Swallows remains as a true local institution. If you to immerse yourself in the local scene, the Swallows is a must-visit. Some nights they have live western music and dancing.

Great Dive Bar!
Jun 2017 • Friends
Went there several times this past week... Cowboy dancing on Thurs. nite, good crowd, fun (live) music considering SJC is a beach town... Very much enjoyed Pedro's cooking on Taco Tuesday, very tasty and inexpensive, 2 dollar tacos and 2 dollar Bud Light on draft... Do not miss while in SJC!

Always a PARTY!

The quintessential local cowboy bar turns upscale and multi-cultural. Classic rock in the afternoons and line dancing and two stepping in the evenings. Really a hoot!

Out of town people have to make this a stop for sure.

If you like the "old west" and atmosphere this is the place to go. Always have country western music band and dancing no matter what time we go. If you decide to grab a bite the comfort food they offer for a quick meal is wonderful. Very loud and their parking lot has lot's of motorcycles parked there. A must see.
