We like to have lunch in Swan River. The view is incredible, we always get a window seat or a table outside on the deck - never crowded at lunch. The breeze through the restaurant is serene and adds to the experience. We go every year - this year we had the favorites: clam chowder and a lobster roll. Our beverage was iced tea - although we've often gone for a lunch champagne when the mood was right. The fried fish is also excellent, and we've ordered it to go - with a container of clam chowder ( of course). The management has changed over the years, but the cozy, quaint atmosphere remains. I only wish they would put the gazpacho back on the menu - then it would be perfect!

Three of us ate here last evening. Although the restaurant was full, we were seated promptly on the outside patio that offered a great view of the Swan River. Now for the food. One ordered statler chicken which came out fried and then baked and looked like a dried up piece of chicken. She asked the waiter about it and he said it always was prepared this way. Because fried was not mentioned on the menu, she asked if she could get something else. She instead choose a Greek salad. My meal was marinated steak tips. I got four pieces of steak which was marinated in something I couldn't identify. The taste was sweet and had an after taste. The third dinner was baked stuffed shrimp. No complaints there but just average. The starch with all three dinners was mushy red bliss potatoes which I found watery and tasteless. The cocktails were creative and reasonably priced. If you want great views with only average food, this is your place. I find there are other restaurants in the general area that serve slightly better food. But you can't beat the view at Swan River.

Oysters, lobster, chowder, good local fish. Perfect. Nice location on the Swan River (and convenient). Swan River has a seafood store which we did not use.

Food was pretty good overall. Portions fine. this was an early bird special that included three courses. Clam Chowder was average. Salmon, steak tips and seafood medley good, but swordfish average. Waiter was excellent. Desserts average.
Pricing good, view of river and ocean very nice.
