Went for a casual girls night dinner. Our waitress was excellent, very accommodating and patient with our indecisiveness! The food was good, the drinks were good and the service was great.

Swaby's is a proto-typical neighborhood eatery in a downtown address. The place is interesting to look at with fair to good food and generous portion drinks.

A relaxing atmosphere during the day and weeknights with good food and service. There is a lot of history inside the restaurant/bar to keep your interest while you enjoy your food.
