    Wide range of cocktails with plenty of beers on tap. Really enjoyed the Korean BBQ Steak, Asparagus & Squid Fries. Be sure to get two desserts as they are delicious and on the smaller side.

    Amazing service and an exciting, whimsical menu. Get the pork cheeks and flank steak and do try the popcorn and a movie dessert.

    Edamame with pop rocks. Probably the best beer snack ever.

    Ask for the booth on the back (complete with lazy Susan - perfect for sharing) and bring multiples of 3 for ordering.

    The endive & leek salad to start and the braised windy hill goat shoulder were my favorite!! So delish!

    It's expensive but some plates are worthy. Korean bbq is sn excellent meat plate. The risotto and the noodles are also very tasty. For snacks the peppers and the edamame are surprisingly good.

    The inventive and playful Swift's Attic has been making waves in Austin's dining scene. From squid "fries" to to foie "PB&J," their focus is on the dining mash-up. [Eater 38 Member]

    Friendly welcome even for a late check in. Chili soup was too big, but the filet was fantastic. The glazed carot is use less. The glass of cote du Rhone was good. Not cheap but it is quality.

    Recommend the prince Edwards ass cocktail, duck wings with grits, seared breaded tuna, quail, and red quinoa salad. Love this place. Great cocktails and great young vibe.

  • Nic L.

    Has a great atmosphere and friendly staff but the food isn't worth the price tag.

    Playful cuisine, delectable desserts, appropriate libations, and excellent service. The atmosphere can get boisterous, but a night at Swift's promises both a memorable meal and a super fun time. Read more

    Food was fantastic but now I want a nap! Grilled romaine salad was wonderful but rich, and croque Monsieur was the same. Fried chocolate pie was delicious.

    everyone raves about the pork cheeks, but don't let the heirloom salad fool you - it's anything but normal. Try phenomenal!

    Meghan Brindley · March 30, 2013
  • Vince M.

    Starting to grow on me after a few trips. A little pretentious but there are some good things on the menu if you ask.

    Make sure you try the edamame and pop-rocks. Oh, shishito too! And if pork cheeks are on menu, don't miss them either! If I could be at Swift's daily, I would be. Thanks for making great food y'all!!

    From grilled quail with Southern hot water grits, to Peruvian scallop tiradito, Japanese chicken tsukune, and even Canadian tater tots poutine, the menu is wildly diverse, but somehow it all works.

    The drinks tend to be icy, straightforward, and on the sweeter side, with undeniable Texas influence.

    Green Flash Trippel. 'Nuff said.

    Richard · January 18, 2013

    Blistered shishitos, scallop tiradito, squid fries, goat shoulder. Trust me.
