Our wine cellar is available for private parties, or dinner seating. Locally owned and operated for over 7 years. We hope you will visit us soon!

Charming gastropub in a house overlooking Capitol Lake serving French-influenced Northwest fare.- Google
"Smoked brisket, duck, excellent stuffed mushrooms."
"It was a cute little place, but I was disappointed afterwards."

Amazing food and the staff is awesome. Constantly asked if we wanted to taste different wines, just to get the perfect pairing for our meal. Tasted all of appetizers and everything was perfection, strongly recommend the cheese fondue and bacon wrapped dates. ❤

The food is good and for those who are looking for something different (i.e. not pub grub) Swing nails it. True, it isn't cheap but the food is a palate player, as discernible on the tongue as the view is to the eyes. Oh, and what a view! Sitting perched high, looking westward on Capital Lake and Budd Bay, the view, even on the gloomiest day is inspiring. The place is small without making you feel like you are eating family style. Finally, the staff. They are professional and yet ever so welcoming. They know their stuff and use that knowledge to lead you through an excellent wine and craft drinks menu. To conclude ... Swing may not be cheap but you know, sometimes you get what you pay for.and then some. So if you want good food, great drinks and a muse for your evening then Swing should be on your Olympia agenda.

It was a cute little place, but I was disappointed afterwards. Took a long time to get our food. Our waitress was never around. My hubby had to get up and find her to get our checks. It's great for ppl who like pricey okay-ish tasting food. But not me. I don't like pricey small portion food that taste ok. My ribs were a little hard. Our sides were something I could make for less than a dollar litterally. Drinks and food were too pricey, and like I said didn't taste all that great. Never going back there.

Jarlsberg Fondue, Swing Flatbread and Chocolate Orange Habanero Ice Cream were amazing. Had some great wines along with a perfect atmosphere. Our waitress, Elizabeth, was excellent.

Cute little place, total surprise! Great ambiance with an incredible view of Capital Lake from the patio and from indoors. Our experience here was absolutely perfect, their menu rocks, especially their cocktail menu and Brad the Mixologist does an incredible job putting his passion into every cocktail, the service overall is great through the entire place. We felt very welcomed and catered to the entire time, the energy and vibe of the place are great, and they play live music downstairs. Definitely our new favorite bar in Olympia, WA. Do not miss out checking out this hidden gem!

Nice view, but seating can be "cozy". New menu is eclectic, but presents well. I recommend the duck. A good variety of wines and spirits, and an attentive but not intrusive wait staff. As far as dining goes in Oly-town, this place deserves a solid 4 out of 5.
