Great food great service. In the banks of the St. John's river. The gator tail is as fresh as can be, kind of like he came to dinner just to make you full

Our last dinner there was very long wait, despite only 6 people in restaurant. Food was cold and not good at all. Do not know if it was bought out but used to be a fun time.

This is a unique bar, tiki bar and restaurant. The food was very good. One visit they had a person singing and playing the guitar. You can drive to this restaurant or dock your boat. There is a boat launch and rentals. We didn't see any gators while we were there but I'm sure they weren't far. We will definitely... More

Had lunch here today. The gator bites were very good but the rest of the food was very average including the crab and lobster Alfredo which was very pricey. The crab and lobster while plentiful in the dish were very chewy. Family of 5 cost $100 with 2 kid's meals, 2 appetizers and no alcohol.

Swamp House has never failed in the food quality department. My only issue is that if they are real busy, the service drops off precipitously.
