In the days where soda fountains were all the rage, Swaney Swifts was a staple location for gathering in downtown Gallatin. The drugstore, located across the courthouse in the town’s historic downtown square, invited folks in with its neon sign and famous malt milkshakes. 

Today, Swaney Swifts on the Square continues this tradition with a modern twist. Reopened in 2015, the drugstore-turned-restaurant serves up burgers and fries, and pays homage to its roots with a collection of old-fashioned milkshakes on the menu. The gathering spot stays lively with weekly events, too. Stop in for a round of Thursday Night Trivia, and listen to live music every Friday night that features a range of local talent.
