Swan River Seafood - Review

mcsheridan | Nov 22, 201401:15 PM    

This restaurant is located in a strip mall in Naples Florida, right next-door to a Polynesian seafood restaurant, USS Nemo. Surprisingly, Swan River serves some of the finest seafood I've ever had; I understand they also have a location in Massachusetts. My two sisters, their husbands and I enjoyed my birthday dinner there earlier this week. Even though it's a little bit early in the Florida "season", the place was packed.

iPad menus were an interesting touch. Swipe through the various menu categories, tap on a menu item and you see a full-color picture and detailed description of each (sides excepted).

When everyone chose their sides I was the only one to select the garden salad; it was uninspiring but adequate. The one misstep was when I chose the honey mustard dressing; my sister warned me after it arrived that it contained wasabi (undisclosed on the menu), so I returned it in favor of the raspberry vinaigrette. This was the second mistake (mine) as the raspberry vinaigrette (disclosed on the menu but unknown to me) was fat-free and somewhat viscous.

We were a party of five; two had broiled scallops, one had clam strips, one had blackened tilapia, and I had the dry boat scallops, lightly breaded and fried. Their texture, sweetness and flavor were absolutely wonderful. Six of them made for an ample & satisfying serving, and the Sweet Potato Fries (with a slight upcharge) were hot, crispy and tasty. My family had a variety of sides; some had the garlic smashed potatoes, others had applesauce, one even had pickled beets.

Everyone, though, truly enjoyed their dinners. There were absolutely no complaints at all. Service was pleasant and attentive; no complaints there either. It probably doesn't hurt that my family are regulars there. This was my first visit - I would return.
