SOB Says: If you’re looking for some quality pub food with some atmosphere and a side of history, then the Swannie House is calling your name. Don’t let the rough exterior fool you, someone is working hard in the kitchen. I’d be tempted to go for a late lunch, and let it roll right into happy hour and a Sabres game. Substitute Bisons for Sabres come spring. Read More->

The Irish tavern known as the Swannie House resides adjacent to the grain elevators along Buffalo’s inner harbor. Officially established and opened for business in 1886, it served the many sailors and workers who inhabited the world’s 3rd largest seaport at the turn of the century. The rich history of the building extends even beyond the bricks that make up its foundation, however. It is said that the sale of the Swannie House by it’s former owners, the Williams family, in 1892 helped fund the creation of the original Women and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo located on Bryant and Hodge Streets.
