I have traveled to Naples over the past 10 years - now live there and one of the best things about my trips were the chance to eat at Swan River. Fresh fish, great service - personal and attentive. Many locals are regulars and eat there every week - including me! Not only great fresh seafood selection, but they have great filets, too! Definitely a friendly place.....my version of "Cheers".

This restaurant was recommended to us so we tried it. The service was really lacking. The crab cakes were great but the salmon was under-seasoned and average at best. The hostess was very sweet. Her kindness was appreciated. We will probably not be back.

So my family and I went there a few weeks ago on a Saturday to have dinner and we had such a terrible experience! Let's start out with the food, my crabcake and the oysters were awesome but the the rest of the food was terrible, my dad's burger was burnt, and the my moms fish tasted like plastic! The rice looked good but had no taste what so ever! The sweet potato was so abnormal can't believe the would serve such thing. The presentation was terrible. Abs to top it off Our server named haily or something like that was terrible, the restaurant was nearly empty but somehow she managed to take forever to approach us and ask us if we wanted drinks. Although she kept a smile on her face, she manage to give us attitude and made us feel stupid. Later after we paid and tipped her, her and a short brunette girl stud next to the bar and gave us dirty looks ! Made us feel extremely uncomfortable. And to top it off there was so much screaming and singing coming from the kitchen! Management should really step up ! .... Couple days later I tried to give the fish market a shot and and the Spanish women was really helpful along with sunny, but there was this other women that worked there that was so loud, laughing and screaming. Terrible ! I honestly feel like management should really have a serious talk with their employees.

I come here strictly for the RawBar. Same order every time. 2 dozen top neck clams as big as they have. Wash them down with a good white wine or beer and I'm good to go. I find the rest of the offerings to be average. Everything is super fresh, which is awesome, but the prices don't match the quantity of the food. I always leave hungry. So after eating the clams, the wife and I usually head right next door to USS Nemo, then Norman Love Chocolate. In that specific order.

It had been a long time since I came to this restaurant but an Associate wanted to meet her for lunch. They had a couple great lunch special options that didn't break the bank plus an excellent lunch menu. The place is New England cozy and my lunch was pretty good. The only complaint was the time it took to get refills on my ice tea and to get the check. In that sense service was a little slow. I always hate that the last thought I have in a restaurant is how long it took me to get out after eating! With all that being said, I did have a pretty decent lunch.
