While I understand how useless, uninformed and un-researched most of these internet lists are I still must ask is The Swamp really the best bar in Gainesville?

 

 I haven't been back to G-ville in years but back in my time I remember the Purple Porpoise, the old CJ's and even the old Orange and Brew as fun bars.  

 

I have never been to the Swamp bar/restaurant but from their website it looks like a place I would go now, and I am old and boring.  It doesn't look like a "college bar".

It's okay. I went there quite often as a student because it was 30 yards from my last class on Fridays and the drinks weren't too bad from what I remember. They kind of hire wait staff like hooters but no complaints here. Food was above average, but the location is what really set it apart IMO.


On illegal hits against Danny Wuerffel: "He's like a New Testament person. He gets slapped up side the face, and turns the other cheek and says, 'Lord, forgive them for they know not what they're doing.' I'm probably more of an Old Testament guy. You spear our guy in the earhole, we think we're supposed to spear you in the earhole. That's kind of where we're a little different." - SOS

In my time, it was Sams Lounge at University & 13th; it was across 13th Street from The Pike House...

I was at UF from '95 - '99, and we went to the Swamp a lot, and seem to end up there every time we go back to G'ville.
