The pretentious twits at the Baltimore Sun say that the Swallow is "the place to be for people who were frat boys two or three decades ago and forgot to evolve." Here's some recommended reading for those writers, who are clearly too pompous to ever have been allowed to join the fraternity 3/4 of our founders are members of: "Does Drinking Help Your Career?" Note to Sun staff: perhaps if you'd have swallowed a few with the fraternity guys, you'd have a better job than writing bar reviews.
The much cooler people who write for the City Paper gave the Swallow their "Best Bar Food" award in 2003, not for any particular dish but for an array of above-average menu items; the English cheddar burger on an English muffin is a suggested favorite.
At most 1.5 decades past our fraternity days,
-One Baltimore group who always know when to Swallow
