The Swamp Restaurant Restaurant Review

: There’s no better place for Gators to unwind than right across the street from Florida Field at The Swamp Restaurant. Known for its proximity to campus and football games, the bright and airy interior space offers a full bar and several flat screen TVs for relaxation after all those happy hours of, um, studying. An eclectic menu serves everything from classic Americana to tangy hummus, hot pressed panini, and a zesty crab cake sandwich with a jalapeño tartar sauce. The crowded patio space facing the University of Florida is usually jam-packed with orange- and blue-wearing jovial students.
