Amazing service, thank you, Jesse, you were great! Right on Rainbow River, rentals available everywhere (do your research for amenities and services). We came in the off season, seating was quick and easy on the water. If you're coming down stream it's definitely a great place to stop. Bring a dry bag or water proof case. Swampy burger was delicious... More

Travelled with Garden Club group from Gainesville. We had a riverside lunch and then our meeting. The waitress was delightful and managed the entire order beautifully. Everyone said their food was good. We will be back again in the near future.

We drove around town looking for a local hip spot to grab a drink and dinner. We rode by this place and said "that look's like fun!" and kept driving down the road to see if anything else caught our eye. Minutes later we were turned around and had seats at the outside bar at Swampy's. We decided to take... More

Stopped for lunch based on reviews and enjoyed everything. We tried alligator appetizer (fried/tastes like chicken) and had poboys (turkey and shrimp). Cold beer and iced tea. $42 for all. Go and enjoy!

After our Kayaking Trip we stopped at Swampys for a drink and a bite to eat. I had a Gator Attack ( Alcoholic Beverage ) and the Chicken Quesadillas. Very Good. The staff was friendly and prompt. Beautiful location right on the River. Definitely suggest!!

We decided to go to Rainbow Springs - separate review - and wanted lunch afterwards. Swampy's was the perfect choice. Right on the river, outdoor seating, great lunch options and outstanding service. I had the Jumbalaya and my wife had the Fish Tacos - both were an excellent value. Our waitress was outstanding as she kept things moving with a... More

This restaurant features an open air deck right on the river, as well as inside dining. Another fun place to eat. The deck is especially nice and relaxing on a sunny day. Feature special drinks each day as well as entrees.
