Nice central place to eat. Attractive dining room too. The best part of the meal was the shrimp and grits appetizer. I wish I had gotten it as a meal instead. It was amazing! The waitress not so much!

Swampfox does an excellent job of using local, farm fresh ingredients to highlight good downhome cooking. Everything on the menu is excellent. Be sure to try the pimento cheese in any form! Small and intimate for diners, they also have a backroom for parties.
