Restaurant Profile: The Swamp, Gainesville, FL

Everyone knows that good old Professor Frog here is an FSU boy, but I can’t deny (nor could any of the FSU fans at One Fat Frog Restaurant Equipment) that Gainesville is one great little college town. And they even have some excellent places to go out for a drink or watch a game. One of those places that’s been featured in national publications is The Swamp Restaurant.

The Swamp started in 1994, but it was built on the spot where an old UF professor’s house was. The house was built in 1915, but then a fire burned it down to nearly nothing in 1993. The new owner came in, rebuilt the building, and opened the Swamp.

The Swamp is located right across the street from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, where the Gators football team has built up a nice little empire (which I want to see my Seminoles continue to break down). And many, many UF students, alumni, professors, and more have spent time hanging out at the Swamp for a game or a bite to eat. In fact, a couple of years ago, even Playboy (yes, that Playboy) named them the number one college bar in the country.
