The Swan even treats you with live Jazz every second Friday. It's really not that much of a hike beyond say March road and Terry Fox, and WELL worth the drive. The dessert selection is to kill for, and it's rare to see such a fine selection of import beers, most of them (except St Bernardus) reasonably priced. It has... More

We were there for lunch and enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. The service was excellent and the fish & chips, French onion soup, pulled pork and chicken wings were all good. Worth a visit when in the area.

I hadn't been to the Swan in decades, but went recently for a work lunch. What a pleasant surprise. The food and service was superb. I had the smoked jambalaya, which was excellent, and our whole group raved about their selections. The kitchen struggled a bit timing wise with our very large group, but the food was well worth the... More

Came for the first time last week with another family, so a table of 12 people in total. The staff treated us well and gave us a great spot to unwind after a busy day. Good food, excellent beer selection on tap and bottles, generous portions and nice staff. We will return!

Dropped in unplanned for a quick dinner on the way home from work on a Friday. We were lucky to get seated without a reservation at 5:30 and the placed filled up fast with quite a few people waiting at the door as we left around 6:40. Good selection of wines and beer, although I was a little surprised there... More

The main meals were not that great. Chicken pot pie under cooked and expensive truffles were very stale!

I met some some friends for a Friday drink after work; the service was terrific, friendly and prompt, the variety of beers was impressive and a fun time was had by us all. Since it was my night to cook, I ordered two schnitzels to go -- one with the pineapple sauce (tangy and delicious) and one with the mushroom... More

We had reservation for a Friday night. There was nobody at the front. We wandered around looking for an employee to direct us to a table. The decor is tired beyond belief. So depressing. Having said that my spouse found the smoked jambalaya to be excellent. I had the best fish & chips since forever. Our server Becky was wonderful... More

My husband and I ordered the Schnitzel and it was the worst we have eaten ! Greasy, much too thick and tasteless. Covered in a mushroom sauce which did not taste good together nor did it look appetizing... yuck ! Mentioned it to the waitress and her response was I'm sorry and that was it. Will never eat there again.
