Come One Come All!!!

Best Gator Burger In Florida!!! Has a great variety of food, that fills you up and is reasonably priced. Went with a group of friends and had a blast. One of the best combinations of atmosphere and food that's just a short way off the beaten path.

The food is average for the casual atmosphere. The place needs some updating, as it is showing signs of age. Menu selections were good, but the fried foods were really greasy. It used to be much better years ago, not sure what changed.

The atmosphere is not noteworthy, it's a fish camp. Looks like old Florida, but not sure the food is any newer. Fried food, blah sides, way overpriced for what you get. 2 for one margaritas saved ot from a one star rating. Think tourist trap, sad. One and done.

This place is a refreshing change from the chain restaurants you'll see along the main highways. The restaurant is just part of a lakeside complex of restaurant, outside bar, gift shop, boat docks, and mini-zoo. The views of Lake Jesup are beautiful, especially in the evening. You can easily see alligators meandering out in the lake. The restaurant is not... More

Nice outdoor old Floida atmosphere, but the food is mediocre & overpriced. On my last two visits the service was unbelievably slow. Thirty minutes to get couple beers and chips & salsa outside. Fifty minutes to get a basic burger & fish tacos inside, and it wasn't even that busy. Too bad because it is a unique location- unfortunately that's... More

We had a great time hanging out at this place. We had a huge party at several tables. The food was hit or miss. Some great some horrible. The drinks were flowing and plentiful however anything that requires water will taste off. They need to add a reverse osmosis water system. Water by itself is quite horrible. Sodas and teas... More

It's just really really tasty food. I love me some good gator meat and they certainly have that. I've never left there disappointed and they have a very friendly wait staff.

I was extremely surprised to found out that the gator bites, which taste fantastic by the way, come from alligators hunted on the lake the restaurant resides on. Really friendly, welcoming atmosphere with awesome customer service and management. The backwoods, country vibe goes very well with gator theme of the whole place.

I live right down the road from Black Hammock and I come to eat eat here all the time. The food is delicious, reasonably priced, the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is perfect for Florida. This watering hole is a place where locals and tourists both go to enjoy a classic Floridian meal. There is couple's seating outside and... More
