Went with some friends to thank them for dog sitting. Service was good, but the food was just okay. Not bad, not good. Very average. The tiki bar is awesome but the restaurant needs a little work. Haven't been back since, it's really not worth the money we paid.

Down home secret restaurant on the river; actually Lake Jessup. It's beautiful place to watch the sunset over the lake (indirect view glows on the lake) and search for gators. The country music and down home hospitality gives a feeling of being right at home. It's not fancy, it's comfortable and friendly. There's a bar with live music out back... More

My family and I had lunch at the restaurant after taking an airboat trip. The service was excellent and had a very welcoming approach. They provided a kids activity sheet fro my youngest son. Once ordered the food arrived promptly and the portion sizes were very filling. My blackened mahi fillet sandwich and fries was excellent and very well priced.... More

We have been visiting the Black Hammock for years! We keep going back for the good food, the friendly atmosphere and the most astonishing sunsets in Central Florida!

We visited the hammock restaurant for a work lunch. Service was very good considering we had about 20 folks. Food was okay. It was an older rustic atmosphere if you are into that. Feeding the alligators after dinner was a hoot and a walk over looking lake Jessup was very pleasant.

Way overpriced and food not that good. Supposedly got a new chef from Disney but other than the high prices, did not see any improvement. Will not be back for a long time depending on reviews.

My daughter had mentioned this place for Fathers day, and because I had not been in 30 years, I said SURE, lets go! The service at the restaurant was frendly and prompt, the waitresses were very pleasant, even tho I never got my cole slaw. However, to everyone's dismay, the meal left a lot to be desired. IE: light battered... More

Black Hammock is a great place to bring guests from out of town/state, with multiple bars, air boat rides and lots of gators (captive and wild) to see. The owner has done a great job improving the property. They have live music some nights and feed the gators on Sunday. We have been going for years. My only complaint has... More

Winding drive to the setting on Lake Jessup. Service and hospitality was excellent. The trout dinner had great presentation when served. This dish was excellent. The trout and new potatoes were the best. Our second dinner was the fish and chips dish. This dinner was consistent with most restaurants, good but nothing exceptional. The only negative would be to pass... More
