I went here twice in one month. It's that good! Both times we brought children (between the ages of 6 and 10). The first time we were brought by my mother. The second time we brought out of state guests. The food is delicious. Even my fussiest eater tried and enjoyed the gator bites. They are cooked to perfection (and... More

This restaurant is a step back to old Florida. The drive in is really interesting. There is a restaurant and a bar complex in the back. Both are very rustic. The menu is interesting, but limited. We had the mahi sandwiches and the gator po boy. The mahi is offered grilled and fried. The reviews were ok. My po boy... More

I have heard so much about this restaurant that I decided that I would give it a try. The bar is located on the water and the restaurant is located back away from the water. If you sit in the glassed area you can see the water where the boats are launched. We were disappointed that the restaurant did not... More

If you have never been to the Black Hammock and live here in Orlando, then you are missing something pretty unique. This is not a theme park like all the other places here on Orlando, this is what Florida is really about. The food here is absolutely delicious and the portions very friendly. The pricing is also very reasonable for... More

My son and I went on an Airboat ride with Captain Steve. That was excellent and I highly recommend it. But the plan was to have lunch at the restaurant afterwards. We walked in and stood at the hostess stand. We stood there at least 10 minutes. It was about 2:15, there were 3 tables of people eating. I never... More

This was our first time at the restaurant, my boyfriend and I usually enjoy the bar, and we loved it! All of the staff were super friendly and I love the atmosphere. I ate the gator po boy while he got the gator burger! Both were very delish, and as usual I enjoyed the 2 for 1 margaritas :)

Interesting place for sure. Visited with my three daughters and wanted to show them a part of Florida that is not all glitter and mouse ears. This place is old school Florida. There are some gators outside in an enclosed area for viewing, which is neat to see without paying theme park prices.. As far as food goes, we shared... More

Another fine dinner at the Black Hammock. They have the best Cajun shrimp and grits of anywhere. Cali the server is always a delight as are all the staff. Key line pie to wrestle a gator for. Even Max the mascot.

I have to admit, my sister and I had plans to go someplace else for lunch that day and were to meet at that location, however when she drove by, there was a long line. We were right near Black Hammock and she had never been there, so I suggested this change of plans. I was really surprised. I expected... More

Recommended by friends to stop in this back country establishment. I called it an establishment because it's a lot more than just a restaurant. It's an alligator zoo, learning center, swap rides, gift shop, and restaurant. Being the first time eating gator, I found the meat didn't have much natural flavor without spice or sauces (taste like chicken!). But the... More
