Needs to wake up! – The bartender's name was Anthony. Don't know if he is still there, but won't take a chance on finding out. He ruined a night out for my wife and her friends - hitting on them and then treating them terribly when told to back off. Whoever owns Swannie's would do well to advertise that he is no longer there, they may attract return customers
No longer a fun place! – Same bartender that the other reviewers mentioned, same surly service. Don't know how they keep return customers. My husband and I used to come here a few years ago (in fact, we met at Swannie's), but there is absolutely NO incentive to return even for nostalgic reasons.
Could be better – I walked in after not being there for about twenty years and was surprised to see a familiar face - the bartender was the same one that was the reason I hadn't been there for so long. The ambience has not changed - deteriorated a bit, but pretty much the same. I did have a cheeseburger and it was average at best. The best time to go in is probably after a game at one of the stadiums, but I visited during the day and witnessed the same type of behavior from this bartender as before. He did not recognize me and I didn't remind him. I would go in after a game for a celebration beer, but at no other time. Used to be a great place during the '80s, but not now.
best "dive" bar – It is a hole in the wall. And a Whole lot of fun! The drinks are great. The entertainment (bar dancing) is incredible!!! Fun for the whole family, over 21!
