We all ordered the Swamp House Fish and Chips which says in the menu it is Catfish. Well, it was not Catfish. The cocktails were pricey and weak, basically a glass of soda. What saves this place is the great location on the St. Johns River. Don't expect great food or drinks here, but the view more than makes up for it.

Had lunch and drinks at the Happy Snapper Tiki bar below the Swamp House - live entertainment was outstanding and the service was great - all 3 bar/servers were on top of their game! The catfish bruschetta and Mahi tacos were amazing. This is truly the Sunday Funday place to be

My wife and I were looking for a new place to eat and finally tried Swamp House. By far, one of the best restaurants we have ever eaten at. My wife is from New Orleans and is very picky when it comes to her seafood, and she absolutely loved it. The waitress (Stephy, I think) was great and the overall atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for. We cannot wait to go back!

It was such a nice drive to get there and such a great location right on St John river. Outside of building is very nice and inviting. Once inside we where seated right away. From that point on it was terrible. Only about 30 people in restrauant and it took server 15 min just to come to our table. Once she got there we placed drink and food order. We got fried gator in about 10 mins. It was so over battered and so much sause that we couldn't even tell we where eating anything. We sat 50 more min to get our main meal. Fish BLT was mushy like from frozen fish. Gumbo was fair. Sweet potatoe and French fries where fair.

Don't waste your time or money.
