I stayed a couple of nights at the Marriott and came down to the bar each night. They had two bands both nights which was surprising since it was a Monday and Tuesday. The bands were very impressive. Unfortunately the bar tenders were given little to no help from the restaurant waitresses so it was next to impossible to get... More

The drinks are pretty good here and the staff very friendly. The atmosphere really cannot be beat. However we were surprised the staff wasn't in uniform at the bar, but tshirts and jeans. Maybe that's just a weekend thing, but this is an upscale hotel so we expected them to appear more professional. We had the breakfast buffet the next... More

This is a great place to just hang out and listen to fantastic live music while enjoying any kind of drink you can imagine. The bonus is the tasty menu with some unique choices. There is also a lovely deck outside with a beautiful view of the hotel's pool area with waterfalls. If the weather permits it's an excellent choice... More

We decided to have dinner here since we were staying at the Marriott Shoals. Had drinks at the 360 Grille-great experience and bartender was wonderful! Left there to have dinner at Swampers. Staff was very nice and inviting. The disappointment started with our spinach/artichoke dip appetizer...way too many chips for the small amount of dip that was on the plate.... More

I have eaten at Swampers often, the food has always been good. However, the wait for the food is way too long, if you have time for an hour and half lunch, go.........but if you do not have that much time, do not go.

My husband I had dinner the night at their other restaurant in the Marriott, so we decided to try this one too. We weren't disappointed. We weren't super hungry that night, so we just got an appetizer of the spinach artichoke dip with pita chips, and my husband got the burger, & I got the chicken strips. All were excellent.... More

Tucked away in the Marriot Shoals Hotel is their restaurant, Swampers Bar & Grill. The menu is not extensive, but filled with good food and desserts. I enjoyed shrimp & grits while my husband had the smoked salmon. Both dishes were delicious. Nice and courteous staff.

Went after eating big dinner and relaxed on deck with people in pool and just sitting around. Good seating for large groups outside and staff was very gracious about giving us dessert at a late hour.

We stayed at the Marriott and Swampers is the bar & grill...it was during the week of the Handy Festival, and even Swampers had great entertainment. The food is good and the atmosphere fun...they also have a satellite bar out by the pool.
