Love this old Florida setting. It is rustic and like stepping back into my childhood. I wasn't expecting great food, I went for the fun, but they had a really excellent Mahi sandwich and fries. So good we went back another time.

The location is the best part about this place by far but the service was surprisingly good—super friendly and efficient. The food was good for what it is—basically casual pub food/family dining. The 2-4-1 Margaritas are horrible. If you think a sickeningly sweet lime-ade tasting drink is a margarita then you might be happy with them. I don't think they... More

Casual laid-back atmosphere. Friendly staff. OK attractions, but the food is mediocre at best. Overpriced for the quality. Unseasoned burgers with plastic tasting cheese and awful tasting bun. Minimal effort on the tacos. Not much meat or extras for the price. Attractions and lake experience is great, but won't come back to eat.

Just something about this place. .. we visit every time we are in town. Food is OK, drinks are OK, atmosphere is great and I will definitely go back the next time and the time after that. Love the gator bites. The bar is also a pretty good spot to hang out; all kinds of folks from locals to bikers,... More

We ate here on recommendation of a local. The food wasn't anything I'd ever order again. I love seafood but not at this place. I've never had catfish that was this tasteless. If not for seeing live gators and the beautiful birds, it would have been a wasted trip.

We used to live down the road from this restaurant and visited several times -- when relatives were visiting from out of town and wanted to see a live gator up close. The food is good and they offer some items you won't easily find around town, like alligator, frog legs and escargot. You can try the gator in a... More

Arrived on a Sunday afternoon not busy but service a little slow. Ordered an appetizer of onion rings, were good but came after all dinners were served. The Gator Poor Boy was good (ordered by my husband) but my 3 blackened mahi tacos weren't very blackened and the amount in each taco was miniscule.

The food here was good, 2 for 1 margaritas can't be wrong, the ice water tasted weird but that is just a Florida thing I've come to learn. I had the fish tacos and they were good but could have used a little more spice. Everyone in my group loved their food here.

It was our first visit to Black Hammock Bar & Restaurant. Using a living social deal & they couldn't have made it easier. Our waitress, Taylor (ask for her!) Couldn't have done a better job making feel welcome. She took great care of us. Even tho it was a rainy day & the outside was dreary, there was an upbeat... More
