Had our class reunion at The Swanson House this past Saturday with approximately 28 present. The restaurant was packed out and there were other groups celebrating also. The crowd did not hamper the quality of service or their food. Both were excellent. It is a beautifully decorated old home and all of our class mates seemed to really enjoy the... More

My husband and I were recommended this eatery by our hotel front desk. The place is a charming southern style house with all the southern hospitality and fantastic food. The fried chicken,coleslaw,okra, and sweet tea can't be beat. We are staying in the area for 5 days and this is going to be a daily lunch or dinner place for... More

You can always count on good food at Swanson. The little biscuits and the small cornbreads are a treat in themselves. Our entrees were all imaginative and tasty. Plus the service is so good. No complaints!

We were looking for somewhere to go that was different from the big chains. Found this on the internet, was very interesting. The menu had a lot of choice, was hard to make up my mind. I had the chicken fried chicken, and it was good. But the side dishes was what I enjoyed the most. Will definitely go again.

Traditional southern menu. Amazing food and service. IT was more economical that a fast food restaurant.

A local favorite with great appeal for visitors looking for southern cuisine and authenticity. Menu is heavy on chicken and fried preparations, but enough variety to satisfy everyone, including vegetarians. Located in downtown Perry, restaurant is in old house with parking lot in rear. Focused on lunch and especially dinner, The Swanson does serve alcohol but does not take reservations.... More

Very good traditional southern foods available on their fairly broad menu. I had baked flounder with vegetable sides of squash casserole and collard greens the last time that myself and my wife ate there. They have southern favorites of fried chicken and meat loaf, if one preferred one of those. They have several desserts, also available. They have been at... More
