Our family enjoyed the outdoor dining that this place had to offer. The bbq meats were great...smoked sausage, ribs, brisket..yummo! The greater more hidden gem about this place are the pies!! Had I known how amazing the pies were I would have not ordered so much lunch. Great food...will visit again.bn

We always look forward to dinner at Swallow at the Hollow. Their ribs are the best around and the side items are just as good. Love the down home atmosphere.

It's been about 5 years since my last visit. The place was as cute as ever and we enjoyed sitting on the covered deck with the fan on and hidden and cooled by bamboo that at first glance looks like corn stalks. We had a wonderful server but the food didn't have that magic it once owned. This could explain... More

I love swallow in the hollow. It's always reliable. I love the setting but we usually get takeout. Always a good experience either way.

The food and atmosphere are great. It is always packed, so we often get take-outs. Do not miss the Gouda and fried green tomato sandwich. The ribs are great, as are the sides. And you must have a bite or two of the banana pudding.

Swallow continues to be my favorite place for ribs/Southern barbecue. Last nite we celebrated my son's birthday-He had been out of the country for over a year and wanted to have ribs so badly. Rather than his usual entree of barbecue baby ribs, he had the special of short ribs which are slow cooked all day. That entree delivered the... More

Department Team building meal. Delish!! The food was wonderful. Biscuits were to die for. The desserts were yummy. Large portions. Everyone had great compliments. The servers were efficient and friendly. Will definitely return and recommend for others.

To avoid the big weekend crowds, we headed over about 5pm on a Friday. By the time we left, the restaurant was essentially full and a few were waiting. Good beer selection (Ballast Point!). Ribs and pulled pork are to die for

I've been here a few times in the last few years! It's always good..but be advised...it gets packed! I think it's best to go at a kind of 'off' hour...IE) dinner at 5:30

Still in the area on business. This spot was recommended by a good friend. No frills atmosphere but definitely comfortable and casual. My waitress, Liz was friendly and helpful regarding suggestions. I ordered the platter and selected the chopped pork, a slice of the homemade wheat toast (biscuit or Texas toast were other options), potato salad and coleslaw. The vinegar-style... More
