Description: Welcome to Swampy’s Bar & Grille in Dunnellon, Florida! Looking over the beautiful Rainbow River from our restaurant deck, you can enjoy and understand the inspiration which created Swampy’s. It is the raw beauty of the Florida river swamp with a few extra conveniences added – Swampy’s great food and drink. If you arrive early enough, you may observe the family of otters that swim, eat, and live right here at Swampy’s river bank. As early afternoon arrives, you view local residents and tourists lazily floating down the river in tubes, kayaks, canoes, and a few boats. As the day ends, and the sun sets, you may again observe the family of otters venture out to enjoy their river dinner, as you enjoy yours.

It was my friends 60th birthday and we went to Swampy's for an early dinner. I wanted to try the gator bites which were excellent! My friend ordered the crab cakes, the corn casserole, and I ordered the gator wrap with sweet potatoes.

Both entrees were excellent!! Loved the gator wrap!! Sweet Potato fries were delicious too! Last, I asked for key line pie for my friend for her birthday. 4 waitresses came out and served the best key lime pie ever!! They sang happy birthday and made my friend very happy!! We cannot complain about anything. Great food, great service and a seat down by the Rainbow River!

Thank Dawnzo

We had our first trip to Swampy’s and were very happy. First of all the location is amazing, we got to watch all the canoes and boaters float by our view. The menu is varied and priced reasonably. Our server was Colson, she was prompt, friendly and attentive. We ordered a turkey burger, turkey wrap, fries and red bean and rice. All items were served promptly and hot. The red beans and rice were our favorite! We will be back!!

We always like to take our visitors to a "local" place to eat to capture the true essence of our beautiful Rainbow River area. Swampy's did not disappoint! We went on a busy Friday night, were seated immediately-no 2 hour wait like another local eatery!- and were served courteously and with careful attention to our needs by Steve, a very personable and knowledgeable waiter! Our guests were very impressed with everything about Swampy's...three cheers to Steve and Swampy's...again!

Someone suggested Swampy's as a good place to go for lunch. We went with another couple and everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was good, prices were reasonable.

After consulting trip advisor and stopping by a few places, the wife and I decided to settle in for a meal @ Swampy's.
We were told to seat ourselves and after looking outside at the full lawn tables, we grabbed a hugh table on the patio being the only thing available.
We sat almost 15 without being acknowledged by any waitress. When one did arrive, she explained she would start us off with drinks but that someone else would be waiting on us. She explained that 2-4-1 drafts were om special. After another 5 min our drafts arrived and she offered to put in an appetizer order for us, which we accepted. Upon walking away she advised another waitress that we order 2 drafts and gator bites. The second waitress arrived with the bites another 10 min later and stated someone would be over to take our entree order. Savannah finally arrived and took our order for salmon and catfish bites only to confirm a few minutes later, salmon was sold out. That was at 3:30 in the afternoon.
Eventually, our entrees arrived close to 45 min after seating.
Gator bites were tender and catfish nuggets were delicious.
There was a misunderstanding on the 2-4-1 draft selection but our waitress Savannah spoke to her manager Lisa, who came to our table and explained the situation but made good on the offer. Very much appreciated.
We will be back soon.
