This place is delicious. Favorite brunch place of several friends. Sometimes this place can be packed because it is a little small, but it seems to be a hidden gem for the brunch crowd. It is downtown, so parking can be a pain, but usually not too bad. Even if you think you don't like beets, you MUST try their roasted beets. The southwest scramble is an easy winner as is the triple grilled cheese.

Came here late morning on a Saturday. We had a table of 8 and they were able to easily accommodate us. As others have said it’s a bar with a small dining area. Fairly extensive lunch and brunch menu with large portions. Burgers and the pulled pork sandwich got rave reviews. I had the applewood smoked eggs Benedict with a side of garlic mashed potatoes. Excellent. Will definitely return.

1st visit to Swingin’ Door was great, I had beef tacos and my husband had Mahi Mahi tacos, both were wonderful. Sampled the carrot side dish too, very delish. Will definitely return.

The Swinging Door pub is a local, traditional pub. Cozy - homemade food great service. Lots of good energy. The bar was full of locals and very busy. The beef sliders were delicious. It's a very casual restaurant/bar. Conveniently located.

We were staying at the hotel across the street and this was a recommendation from them. It is very small and quaint but the people are so extremely friendly. It is a bar when you first walk in but they have a small section set up like a restaurant to sit and eat. It seems to be a very popular place as it was packed the whole time we were there. We ordered a specialty burger and WOW it is huge! I could only eat half of it but the flavor was amazing and they have these homemade potato chips that are addicting! I love trying to find local places to eat and this one did not disappoint!
