Very good food across the menu. Carpet was dirty and needs to be cleaned or replaced. Just a little rough around the edges. Bathrooms were clean.

Swingers Bar and Grille is a nice play to stop for a casual dinner. Don't let the name fool you: it is more than just a bar with food, although the beer and wine selections are great. The dining has always been very good, and the crowds in the place attest to its quality. In addition to nice soups, salads... More

I've been a fan of this place since they opened. I eat here a couple times a year and always have a good experience. The ambience is nice and drink options plentiful, and service is usually very good. On my most recent visit we discovered they have a new menu and new chef. I was disappointed by the new menu...

Interesting enough Swingers is not what one thinks it is. It a fun place to hit golf balls and the have a great dinner. The area to hit golf balls (like a driving range) is heated during the colder months! So you can hit balls all year. I have been going to Swingers fro many years. I hosted my daughters... More

I normally eat here at least once a month. The restaurant either has too many servers, or not enough. They can't seem to find the sweet spot were the customers don't have to wait. Food was just OK. I had one of the weekly special's that was a Citrus Pork Torta. For some reason they used cilantro, and left the... More

We love this place. We have been going here for the last 4 years while visiting our daughter at ISU. We discovered this place from a tip by a family member who lives in the area, or we would not have ever tried this place. The setting is weird. An exceptional restaurant connected to a golf pro shop and driving... More

Recently had dinner at Swingers. Sat near the bar at a high top table. Actually, it was nice because we had space around us and it was not too noisy which made conversation easier. The food was very good--we had prime rib and maple cheddar burger. The service was great--thank you Max!! Highly recommend!

Took my family which includes all older children (over 19). Was surprised when we drove up to find it included a driving range, but the entire experience was amazing. The menu has a great selection of appetizers and entrees; something to fit the style for the entire family. The wine list was excellent. It is rare to find a place... More
