Enjoy lunch or dinner on the river at Swampy's. We tubed and then had lunch. Like it so much, went back the next day for dinner. Pet friendly, and human friendly too.

After our Singing River boat tour, we ate a nice lunch at Swampy's. Although it was quite busy, we got very fast service. Everyone in our group of 20 enjoyed their meal. We will return to this restaurant.
