Food was delicious and the servers were great! We enjoyed a typical cape cod meal of steamers,...lobster roll and s delicious huge wedge! And of course their special garlic bread.... enjoy this beautiful setting while you can! Bring a blanket!!More

Went to Swan River last night for dinner. They have a good selection of entrees. Took me a while to decide; ended up ordering the lobster mac and cheese. It was a very good portion and was tasty; I would definitely recommend it.

We were on vacation nearby and wanted to have an outside feast of lobster. Had been to the market maybe 30 years ago while working for a local lobstermen that delivered to the market. Usually like cooking lobster myself, lots of places over or under...cook them . We had ordered three of the 2 1/2 lb and had the market steam and crack for us. The lobsters were ready when we asked to pick up, and when we got them home we were so happy with the choice. Not only were they cooked to perfection, they were absolutely delicious and easy to eat!. A dozen cherry stones that tasted like they came out of the water that day completed our feast.! Thank you to Swan River Fish Market to making our night!More

We've been to Swan River on vacation two years ago and enjoyed it so much and wanted to try again. We feel safe outside and Swan River has made an absolute oasis with its outdoor seating near the river. Unbelievable views of the river rolling...into the sea. But more importantly is the food and service. The hostess was terrific- promptly brought us outside (as requested) - our server Duyett was outstanding, professional , warm and welcoming. I ordered the crab stuffed haddock and DH ordered swordfish which he asked to be blackened. My fish was so wonderful... I order fish almost every time I eat out because I don't want to cook it at home. I can't remember a better piece of fish than this,. DH loved his blackened swordfish also. We had an amazing dinner and were so happy with all the COVID precautions. Can't wait to go back again.More

I don’t know whose writing these reviews, but we were completely disappointed. We started out with raw oysters, they had zero brine and had to have been shucked hours of not a day before. The stuffed clam was even worse, zero clam-it was just breading....One guest had the steak tips and they were covered in a weird semi sweet glaze. The potato salad has a strong vinegar taste. Service was slow but nice. We would definitely recommend saving your $200 and going somewhere else. The knife they played with the steak tips says it allMore

This restaurant has been here for a long time but outside dining was always slim. Well, Covid changed that and now we have a beautiful seating directly alongside the Swan River. It’s become our new place to bring friends and show off a great evening...while enjoying a great meal on the cape. The food has been consistently good, love the steamers and all of the fish entrees have been delicious. Tables are well spaced, the staff has been excellent and deserve credit for making it work in an otherwise strange year. They work harder in the sun and walk further in this covid year and deserve a lot of credit along with the entire SRR&FM team. Nicely done and this is how to make Dennis Port shine.More

Swan River turned out to be an excellent place for pandemic dining! They have a large area outside with views of Swan River and South Village Beach, and it was easy to get a table. The service was speedy and friendly and the seafood we...selected was nicely done. While we came for dinner on this visit, I’m thinking it would also be a nice setting for drinks and appetizers after a day on the beach!More

I really enjoyed the fried seafood platter. Truthfully it was too much food for one person to eat. The Beach Bread, their version of garlic bread, was excellent. Much better than the usual restaurant bread. They had outdoor seating with adequate space between tables.

We ordered (6) 2 1/2 lb lobsters from Swan River Fish Market. They were cooked perfectly and had the claws cracked and tail split for easier eating. We also enjoy the clam chowder base they carry. Been going to this market for as long a...I can remember. Staff also always pleasant.More

Outside dining during the pandemic. The Swan River put tables outside and as long as the weather is good this works out great, with a great view of the Swan River. I had the seafood supreme and it was very good. My wife had stuffed...fish-also very good. The staff was all masked up and everything seemed sanitized between customers. A good choice for waterfront dining.More

You are asking about the restaurant building? I would have no Idea. It just doesn't look like much from the out side. A low white vinyl sided building. Very pretty inside and a great view.
