- For starters, I love the fact that it is centered around music. This is by far my favorite part about the bar and grille. Swampers Bar & Grille has live entertainment 7 days a week, 365 days a year, showcasing local artists. As soon as you walk in the door, you cannot help but notice all of the pictures of famed musicians who were a part of the muscle shoals music scene – it was basically a tribute to Muscle Shoals music. To be honest, before visiting Florence, I had no idea that it was such a cool city that revolved around music. Swampers introduced me to that extremely awesome history that I should have already known. Come to find out, my cousin even partially recorded one of his albums at Muscle Shoals Sound Studios. So cool to learn some history about my family during our visit, as well. I’ll chat more about this in my Florence Travel Guide when I post it!
- The outdoor patio space in Swampers is a fantastic place to hang out, spend time with family, grab a meal, and/or watch football! My favorite part of the outdoor space are the fire pits – it made it really relaxing and cozy.
- Everyone was so nice! The bartenders and waiters were all so helpful, fun, and accommodating.
- The food was great and the ingredients tasted fresh and high-quality. We did not have a bad bite!
Cubano with fries
I love a good cubano and this was right up my alley. Pressed cuban bread stuffed with braised pork, smoked ham, pickles, Singin’ River beer mustard, and swiss cheese, this sandwich was hard to put down because it was so good.
Blackened Chicken with Charred Onions and Peppers Quesadilla
By the time we got around to the quesadilla, we were so full, but once we tried it, we knew that it was all being eaten. So good!
