Description: Welcome to Swampy’s Bar & Grille in Dunnellon, Florida! Looking over the beautiful Rainbow River from our restaurant deck, you can enjoy and understand the inspiration which created Swampy’s. It is the raw beauty of the Florida river swamp with a few extra conveniences added – Swampy’s great food and drink. If you arrive early enough, you may observe the family of otters that swim, eat, and live right here at Swampy’s river bank. As early afternoon arrives, you view local residents and tourists lazily floating down the river in tubes, kayaks, canoes, and a few boats. As the day ends, and the sun sets, you may again observe the family of otters venture out to enjoy their river dinner, as you enjoy yours.

Came to swim with the Manatees w family and Grandkids. Gator bites were good. Kids meals were huge for a pair of 4 year olds. Several had sausage and beans and rice. Excellent! ! Steak

Great location right on the Rainbow River. You literally can watch the canoes, kayaking, and boating while you eat. There were no bugs to contend with, only the humidity. The food was delicious. We had the chicken quesadillas and a couple of sandwiches. They had a nice selection of beer on tap as well. We will definitely be back to try some other dishes. It was a very nice, relaxing lunch!

Stopped here twice on our trip, once just for a cool beverage by the water, the other time we rented kayaks there and on the return, we stuck around for happy hour apps & a beer. The place gets packed in summer, but during shoulder season September, we had the place to ourselves. Nice bartenders, great sweet & spicy chicken bites. Cold mugs of beer, you can sit out by the water and just chill. We saw some otters in the water too. Cool place and the river is beautiful.

Food portions won't leave you hungry. Even the sides are ample. Great taste at a great price, and what a view!

My daughter and I stopped at swampy’s after a full day on Rainbow River. From the raspberry lemonade to the crab and artichoke dip to the shrimp Po boy and burgers, everything we had was simply amazing. And you can’t beat the view! We will be back next time we’ve had all of the Rainbow River again!
