Usually stay away from Hotel restaurants, but the Swamp Fox was worth it!
Great for special occasions
Outstanding! The service was excellent, the ambiance was quiet and comfortable, and the food was delicious. Highly recommended.
I didn’t care for the table near the bar, since I had a reservation. They canceled my open table reservation, while I was dining there for lunch. The food was good and the prices reasonable! Service was very good aside from the bad table and canceled reservation!
We chose the Swamp Fox because of its location (near the Gaillard Center, where we were attending a Sunday evening show) and positive reviews from our neighbors. We were not disappointed - very good food and service. Shrimp and grits appetizer portion (called "petite" - but very generous) gave me a chance to sample their renowned recipe (excellent) without filling up. A bibb salad with sautéed scallops was a finish to the meal.
Tasty pre-concert meal. Attentive and knowledgeable waitress. We'll go back.
Very disappointing. We were there for Restaurant Week on a Saturday night. They were out of one of their entrée choices and one of their dessert choices. No option was offered from their regular menu to substitute for the entrée or dessert. We ordered the pork tenderloin and received a pork chop. Service was okay, but not outstanding.
Happened to be at the Francis Marion for a conference - it was restaurant week so thought we would partake in the 3/30 - figured it would be top shelf since they were showcasing it during restaurant week. The salmon appetizer was literally smoked salmon formed around a mound of cream cheese - i could make this at home - nothing special at all - i had the swordfish which came on a mound of COLD rice or something - the waiter said it should be room temp but it was ice cold like out of the fridge. My friend had the meatloaf which was not special at all. Really disappointing. Desserts were ok. I have a feeling this was a misstep and perhaps not the typical meal at this hotel but wow - it was really really bad!
The greeter and server were lovely and accommodated our little family nicely. They offered easy conversation, recommendations, and pleasant smiles. The place was very quiet on New Year's Day. A few oddities due to the holiday....no straws, no bags for take out boxes...you get the idea. We will probably not return.
Over priced and just ok food, including some pretty subpar mac and cheese (really?). In a city like Charleston, where delicious food abounds, they need to up their game! We won't go back.
Great experience! Had lunch and dinner. Both experiences were excellent.
Great food. Enjoyable. Waitstaff were pleasant and very attentive.
We had dinner, breakfast and the Christmas buffet at the Swamp Fox. We are from south Louisiana so we are familiar with good food. The Swamp Fox is exceptional, and a great presentation of Low Country cuisine. The best shrimp and grits in Charleston.
My husband and I had our annual Christmas Buffet , and again it was sensational. We would like to give a big Thank You to Rickie Simmons and his GREAT staff. Food was delectable. Christmas tunes played by piano add warm to cozy spot. I hope everyone get a chance to experience such a great restaurant, especially at the holidays. Also, the shrimp and grits were "out of this world". See you again shortly.
The Swamp Fox has some of the best Low Country cuisine located in the heart of Downtown. Their she crab soup, shrimp and grits, and fried green tomatoes are the best in Charleston. They locally source most of their ingredients. The seasonal fried oysters appetizer was excellent.
Wonderful cozy little restaurant in the Francis Marion Hotel with great food and beautiful view of Marion Square.
Baked brie was amazing
I had the fried chicken, collards, and potatoes for dinner. The food and service were great! We always stay at the Frances Marion Hotel and enjoy dining at the restaurant. Their breakfast and lunch are also very good!
This was the only place that had a table available before we went to see the Charleston Symphony and it turned out to be a very good choice. The food was good, the service was great and we just had a wonderful time. We will go back
Our second time at the Swamp Fox restaurant and the food again was very good with one small exception. Several of our group of 6 people felt that the vegetables were over salted. We had different vegetables on the table such as roasted Brussels sprouts, asparagus and okra and each person said the same thing about the saltiness. But..overall the food and the service was as good as our last visit and we will return. Thank you for an enjoyable pre-theatre dinner.
