Just left Swank for a family dinner. Recommend the fries, the Mac and Cheese, the Sliders, and the Green fried tomatoes. The dessert menu was limited. Enjoyed the Carmel Apple Bootleg. The service was good; appetizers came out quickly, but a little delay for the entrees.

“Positives and Negatives at Swank”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I'll start with the positives: 1) Attractive building inside and out; 2) Nice Servers; 3) Good Food; 4) Prices ok. Now for the negatives: 1) Inadequate parking; 2) Noisy & loud dining; 3) Although we had reservations and were seated right away, we waited half an hour before our server took our order; then we sat at our table an hour before our drinks were served; 4) Waitress seemed inexperienced (though nice) and unable to handle her tables in a timely matter; we noticed several servers bringing out food to tables only to take the same plates back to the kitchen because they were confused as to where the food was supposed to go; 5) Bartender did not seem experienced, as his pours of wine were not consistent from glass to glass; 6) Although the Shrimp and Grits were good, the size portion seemed too small.
I have to say I was looking forward to this new restaurant; we purchased a Groupon and feel it was a fair value. However, being this was a Friday night and the fact of the Groupon offer, the staff seemed very overwhelmed and unprepared for the crowd of people coming to try this new restaurant. I hope they can learn from their rocky start and improve to the point that we might decide to return one day!
