The Swanson is in a beautiful ,impeccably clean old house. White cloth tablecloths add to the charm. The food is well prepared country cooking. In quaint downtown Perry Ga. Take a stroll after your meal. You'll need to because you'll be quite full!

This is really southern cooking that you sit at the table and they wait on YOU. They have fried green tomatoes, an yummy quiche,, fried chicken, salmon, meat loaf - all the things you would expect to get in the south. They have a cornbread biscuit that you must try, Wonderful people that work there. For the most part every one down town Perry is wonderful.

A true southern tradition! I've had many family outings there and there is a wide variety of southern gems on the menu. The fried chicken and pot roast are great!

We found this restaurant by chance traveling home from the coast. We stumbled upon the Sunday Lunch special. The meal included desert for only 9.95. GREAT food and service!! We dined on the porch which was lovely.

Old home in center of old downtown. The fried chicken is phenomenal and each meal comes with the famous "little biscuits" which are melt in your mouth good.
