Hands down the best Rueben sandwich I've ever had! Amazingly tender corned beef! Our waiter was Michael....he was very knowledgeable and gave us great suggestions! The homemade potato chips are fantastic! Cajun ranch is great too! Check this place out....you won't regret it!

We tried Swingin' Door Exchange late on a quiet Sunday night, and we're glad we did. There were just a few (it seemed like) regulars in the bar area. The dining area was not open, so we ate at the bar. It's a beautiful wooden...More

Walk-in only. Wait times may vary based on the number of people in your party. Smaller groups turn over more quickly. I think the others here answered excellently. Thanks for the question and thanks for the answers!
