The Swamp Restaurant is the #1 College Sports Bar and Restaurant in the nation. It is named for its proximity to the legendary Florida field, but offers much more than just a great location. The famous front lawn and intimate decks are great places to soak up the Swamp atmosphere. The Swamp was established in 1994 as a smoke-free restaurant, welcoming locals and visitors looking for a casual dining experience, partnered with Gainesville's great Florida Gator traditions. Our food and staff are award winning. Always make the Swamp your only stop for lunch, dinner and drinks on our famous front lawn.
