Swingers is my favorite for Lunch or Dinner. Menu is wonderful yesterday was the Fish Poor Boy and fries and topped it off with Taylor's Lemon Drop Martini. Casual dining, excellent service, wonderful menu all great, try soon.

There are many options as sandwiches as well as entrees for dinner. The toasted club was pretty good but nothing special against others in area. The beer and bar menu was very extensive which seemed to be main focus of this location.

Visited with a group. Everything handled beautifully. My Italian sausage and jalapenos was excellent with full flavor.

Went there after golf. One burger was a hockey puck, mine was very well prepared, juicy and tasty. Hand cut fries were a little overcooked, but the thicker ones were very good. Our waitress was attentive and helpful.

We spent all day at Swingers for the Kentucky Derby event. It was great fun! Even though it was very busy, the food and drinks came out quickly. I had the cheese burger and my husband had the chicken sandwich. Both were very good. Swingers...More

The food is okay, but very pricey for what you get. The bar tab is way out of line on price. If you are looking for a nice quite romantic evening it is a bit on the noisey level. The staff is friendly. Not worth...More
