We stopped in for an impromptu date night and had an exceptional dinner! My husband chose the clam linguini and raved about how fresh the clams tasted, and I had the seafood bouillabaisse and could not have been happier. The seafood was phenomenal and the...broth was absolutely drinkable. Thankfully they provided crusty bread for dipping! Incredible meal, excellent service, and reasonable price for the value. Our only complaint was the patio chairs could be more comfortable, but honestly the food was so good we nearly forgot! Will definitely be back when visiting Naples again.More

I'm so happy that Swan River has decided to open for lunch again!! This is one of favorites for a DELICIOUS seafood lunch...the opening menu has classic favorites and my fried cod was the best I've ever had...lightly battered and moist and flakey!! Swan slaw...just as good as before...fries yummy and The Beasely Carrot Cake unbelievable!!! The Rombauer Chardonnay perfectly complimented the Cod! Daniel was our exceptional waiter and was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable about everything we asked him. Great improvements with decor! Ken was kind enough to introduce himself as part of the Swan River new ownership and complimented him on all the improvements and decision to reopen for lunch. It's not about the price....we want what we want and not looking for discounted prices just because it's lunch. The clientele I know who went there in the past will be so happy you have opened for lunch again. Thank you....and Hi to Beasely, Patrick, Daniel & Ken!!! This will be a very successful winter for you😍😍KristinMore

My wife and I usually find dinner on 5th Ave in Old Naples. However to change things up we surfed for more of a neighborhood restaurant and came upon Swan River. They are doing a very good job maintaining a healthy environment which isn’t always...that easy nowadays. The Swan offers both indoor and outdoor seating. We decided on indoors for two nights and we felt safe. The service from start to finish is excellent. The seafood is as good as any we have tried throughout the world. The pricing is around 25-30% less than on 5th Ave. Very professional staff and as clean a restaurant as you can expect.More

I don't have enough adjectives to describe how much we loved this place. We had dinner one night. My husband had steamers as an appetizer and a whole libster for dinner. He could not have been happier. I had a small house salad and Grouper...picatta. It was Devine. We lived it so much we came back 2 nights later and bought libster salad,, steamed shrimp, crab cakes, twice baked potatoes and black grouper. We ate the lobster on rolls for lunch. Absolutely phenomenal. For dinner we had shrimp cocktail. Also phenomenal. For dinner I cooked the potatoes, broiled the crab cakes, and sauteed the grouper I seasoned with Tony Cacheres and Old Bay. One of the best meals we have eaten. Thank you Swan Ruver for being such great purveyors of high quality seafood. Everything was 5 star but the price.More

I visit infrequently but always return here. Excellent choice for seafood. With an early bird special, I recommend coming before “6”!

I booked a Saturday evening reservation and arrived on time but was told the only seat available will be a table set up in the bar. The table was in close proximity to the bar where there were 6 people sitting within 2 ft of...each other with no masks in sight. When I asked if I could sit in the main dining room I was told they are reserved for later seating. My alternative was to sit outside where it was 94 degrees. Options were to risk getting Covid at the bar or swelter in the heat outside so we left without eating here. No apology from management and just too bad that they don't get it !! Horrible experience. We went up the street to Mr. Big Fish and had a fantastic dinnerMore

This seafood restaurant is consistently very good and I highly recommend. Entrees are always prepared as requested and well portioned. They are also focused on CDC recommendations which is an additional benefit. Curbside and inside pickup are also available.

Great food and another business that does not do business with Oakes, who we are boycotting. Nice to see that in addition to great food, they care about their customers and their community. Also, fresh lobster flown in daily.

Seafood platter was good and adequate to split. BUT- experience with owner was awful. We wanted to have drinks and eat at the bar. He refused to seat us with one seat between us and a couple who were checking out, even though they were...one seat between a couple on the other side. We were finally seated, had 4 drinks between us (house bourbon and wine) and split a seafood platter ($28). The bill was $91. We will NOT be back. Overpriced and did not feel welcome.More

Hi exhaper1 Beer & wine are served at Swan River's Boat Bar and you can enjoy the same entrees at the bar as the dining room. There is not a specific bar menu. Thanks for asking!
