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

We stopped by for lunch. Both my wife and I ordered the catfish sandwich. We couldn't eat it. The fish was way too fishy. We have had catfish at many area restaurants and this fish was the worst we have ever had. The management was very courteous and took it back. We replaced it with pulled pork sandwiches. Somewhat better.... More

The ride was great, entertaining and educational - we would do it again for sure! After we came back, we all held a baby alligator except for... More

Server was friendly but for a Saturday evening at 7pm in an empty restaurant she was hardly ever around and when the food comes out wrong 2 times, this is not where I would recommend dining. The food lacked flavor and the portions were small for the price.Not impressed at all. By the way, expect children to be running around... More
