We visited today for the first time, it will not be the last. We were in town for SEWE, the restaurant was convenient and the head chef just did a demo in Marion square. Our waitress was friendly but the manager, I'm assuming, was super friendly and genuinely cared about the patrons and their opinions. The fried green tomatoes were... More

We decided to head downtown to spend the day at the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition and wanted to find a place to enjoy an early morning breakfast near the event, friendly, great food and super service. We found it all at the Swamp Fox in the Francis Marion Hotel. Arriving before the opening of the event we were seated by the... More

I am a local, so it was a nice treat to find this golden nugget right in the heart of Charleston. I have eaten at many restaurants in the low country, but I had never tried this hotel restaurant. I also had Fried Green Tomatoes so, I was on a signature Charleston roll. My guest raved over the duck. I... More

The menu offerings, the quality of the food, and the service at this restaurant in the Francis Marion Hotel are exceptional. Many hotel restaurants are acceptable places to dine, but this restaurant and lounge are just great places to relax and enjoy the food and the atmosphere. Kudos to Christina (great server) and the restaurant management for a wonderful experience... More

Went to the Swamp Fox for dinner last night, and it was fabulous! The restaurant is elegant, the bar is nicely tucked away from the dining room, and the piano player was a fun touch! Had baked brie (yum!), ravioli (thank you for a vegetarian option!), and chocolate tart for dessert (so good!). Our service was top notch, friendly, and... More

My wife and I really liked the Swamp Fox Restaurant in Charleston, S.C. It is in the Francis Marion Hotel but easy to enter. Our lunch meal was fantastic in quality including crab cakes and salmon. You will not be disappointed. The Gray Line Tours operator recommended this restaurant and I was very glad he did. It's right on King... More

Normally I am not a fan of hotel restaurants. And throughly enjoyed my meal at Swamp Fox inside the Frances Marion Hotel in the heart of Charleston SC recently. They are surrounded by a myriad of other highly acclaimed eating choices and exceeded my expectations by a large margin. I highly recommend this place for breakfast, lunch or dinner if... More

We chose the Farmers Market Menu. Our meal was FLAWLESS!!!!! I dine out on a regular basis, and THIS meal, was by far one of the BEST, if... More
