Atmosphere: Swell is decorated in colors and the decor is most definitely a beach atmosphere. They have a lot of surfboards and surfing pictures. You can choose to sit in the main area which has a bar in it or an area off to the side where there is no bar. You can also be seated outside which is like a covered deck area. It is a really fun atmosphere. This is not the kind of bar that a family can't eat in at least in the daytime.

What we ordered: This was our first visit to Swell so my husband being the Cheeseburger lover he is ordered a Kahuna Cheeseburger and fries and I ordered the fried shrimp with a side salad and mac & cheese. When I received my salad I thought, Wow, what a huge side salad. The salad was a wonderful start to the meal. It tasted and looked fresh and came with tomatoes, green pepper, onion, cheese and croutons. Next came the meals and I noticed right away how much cheese was on the mac and cheese. I like a lot of cheese on my mac and cheese and this fit the bill. There were 8 large shrimp that were fresh and dipped in panko and fried. They were delicious. The cheeseburger my husband ordered was huge. I would say 1/2 pound. It was perfectly cooked and so were the fries. Everything was hot and made to order. It was a great meal.
Overall Impression: I will definitely go back. I can only say one bad thing about Swell and that is that they don't make their sweet tea fresh. I think it may be nestea. Other than that, it was a perfect dining experience.
