We stopped in for a dinner and found the food to be really good. The pizza was great, and we had a Fan Tan Chicken salad that was delicious. Friendly pub atmosphere but the entire experience was superior to a standard pub.

We came here for lunch after spending the morning at the museum. Some of us walked over and others drove and found street meter parking nearby. The place wasn't that crowded so our group was seated quickly. Our waitress seemed to be a bit stressed but gave us great service. The manager came by our table during our meal to... More

We decided to have our Christmas Day Dinner at Swan's to save making any us, parents or any of our adult children work hard to cater for 8 to 10 people. The food was good and well cooked and the portions were generous. The service was excellent and our waitress was exceptionally pleasant without being intrusive. The selection of drinks... More

Swan's offers excellent range of local beers and superior food, often with live local entertainment . A great place.

Stopped here during happy hour for some brews and an appy. Couldn't be happier with that decision! Did the beer sampler (a little pricey. $10 for 4 samplers is a bit greedy), and some happy hour hot wings (those are reasonably priced during happy hour). The beer was great. The Berry Ale was by far my favorite. The hot wings... More

There to meet friends early Fri. night. Comfortable, nice decor & good service. Grew noisier & busier as the evening went on. Salmon dish was tasty & interesting. Lamb shank rated an OK. We were shocked at the tiny piece of cheesecake that was served for $10.00.

Stayed and eaten here before. Don't expect much besides a beer from the pub, but they always seem to pull out some decent bar food. Service is quite friendly and casual. Do check your watch, it seemed to me that the kitchen closes earlier on a weeknight than I would have expected.

Swans is a casual comfortable pub with nice atmosphere. But that where it stops. Our Australian waitress was friendly enough but the food was very average ,and over priced. My brother in law had the Asian stir fry, that lacked in flavour and was all noodles. The steak was 6 ounces, which they told you in advance, but it was... More
