Had three blackened alligator tacos, three blackened shrimp tacos, and hush puppies. The tacos were good. I can recommend getting your gator meat this way, not as the deep fried gator bites. The hush puppies were good too.

The Black Hammock is true, authentic Florida! My husband and I love this place. If you are looking for 5 star dining, go somewhere else. But if you are looking for a unique and fun experience then this is the place for you! Interesting menu items including gator bites, beautiful view of the lake, nice staff, good food.. fun atmosphere... More

The atmosphere was nice. We sat on the patio. The food presentation was very nice but the flavor was bland. The water was not good and made all the drinks taste bad. The service was good, but there wasn't very many customers when we arrived.

The fare is fairly typical of "fish camp" restaurants with lots of fried options. Nothing particularly stands out in the line up, but we have never had a particularly bad meal there. Price is appropriate for location. While it could use a bit of updating, it is not that bad. Service we have received is always pretty good and any... More

The Black Hammock area has the resemblance of an old Florida fish camp. As part of this attraction is a restaurant, The Black Hammock Restaurant. I addition to a simple but impressive menu, they also have a full bar. (Psst!!! They always offer 2 for 1 Margareta's!!) The service was super! The restaurant was clean. The food was delicious! In...

Out in the boonies seafood restaurant. Come here take an airboat ride & then eat here. Good seafood. If you're feeling adventurous try the gator bites.

What a fun day we had when we visited Black Hammock Restaurant. It happened to be Halloween and so we were pleasantly surprised at all the things happening. Games and surprises for the children, feeding the penned alligators, birds, etc.. Enjoyed sitting outside by the water for a quick drink before going to the restaurant for lunch. My friend enjoyed...

Off season--old Florida fish camp with buildings that that been there a while. Fish and Chips very good but physical surroundings look dated and need of freshening up. Beautiful view of lake with boat docks for those to take lake tour.

This is a good ole boy restaurant through and through. If you are looking for fancy this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking to try different things like gator, frog legs etc prepared very nicely its great. If you seek a real encounter with real gators on lake Jessup and live a real Florida experience... More
