We stopped in for lunch and found a really interesting place. An original combination of old Florida and the eclectic. We felt right at home. They have a series of things to occupy your time such as air boat rides, a small zoo and views of the lake. The bar overlooking the lake was not open yet so we didn’t get a chance to check it out. It does look like a nice place to relax and enjoy the view and all the activity surrounding the location. Yes, it’s busy. We wandered into the restaurant and were immediately greeted by a young and agreeable waitress. Took our drink orders which were quickly delivered. I tried the meatball sandwich, which was on special, and my wife tried the fish tacos. Both were just fine. Price was reasonable. We will be back in the future, but later in the day so we can relax by the lake and watch the air-boats. Enjoy.

When in Rome....well when at Black Hammock after viewing alligators in the wild it's only fitting to try a taste of Alligator. We ordered a half pound of Gatorlicious bites ~ half cajun and half Florida flavor. The bites came out golden brown and as tender a you can find alligator. The accompanying honey mustard sauce made it even more flavorful. We also tried the bangin shrimp, catfish nuggets, and the corn fritters ~ all equally delicious as were my Mahi Tacos. To top this meal off we added their 2 for 1 margarita special....several times. The entire experience was made very pleasant by our server Samantha. Definitely a must stop when you're looking for an out of the way place with atmosphere.

Great staff. Very helpful and friendly. Prices are good and there are so many choices. We had one of the burgers and the mahi mahi tacos and were very satisfied. Off the beaten path a little but locals have known about it for years. Plenty of parking. There is a bar and grill also on the property as well as airboat ride possibilities and a place to take a boat out as well as fish.

So we finally decided to try this place after reading the four star reviews. Total disappointment and won’t be back. For starters we purposefully arrive just after 1pm to avoid lunch crowds. The restaurant was at about 35-40 percent capacity (so not even half full). We were told before being seated that food would take 30-40 minutes. The place was also not clean, tables had not been bussed and it smelled like an old house. After being seated and waiting for 10 minutes our drink order were finally taken. At this point the restaurant was down to about 20 percent capacity (so not busy). We ordered. My wife got catfish and I got fish and chips. It took about 25 minute to get our food. We ordered an appetizer which our waitress forgot to put in. When our food arrived my wife’s was done perfect, my fish was pretty black (almost brunt) and way over done. Neither of us got our salads either. The fish was super salty and so for $41 we got two sodas, French fries and way to salty fish. A pitiful experience and sad as we had heard some good things. With all the choices in good places to eat, we won’t give This another chance. Sadly disappointed.

A party of 13 could cause a challenge, but for an empty restaurant? Nobody dining when we arrived and no staff to be found. It took a long time for what appeared to be the only waitress/bartender to take our orders. She seemed to be more focused on the bar in another building. The food, for the price, was far from impressive as well. Rather bland. Staff did bring an alligator around, which pleased the children. But better service would have been far more appreciated. Also disappointing was the fact some meals were served on actual plates, but others came on paper in plastic baskets. And straws in all drinks; what a waste!

We sat in an open dining room and there was one other table in the adjacent dining room. We were a party of 4 adults and 2 children. We ordered dinner and waited for an hour for our food. Half of the food was room temperature and the other half of the food was hot. One of the children’s meal wasn’t fixed correctly. We asked to have it made correctly. We ate and continued to wait another 45 minutes for the dinner to be fixed correctly. We paid for the ticket. After an hour we left without the meal. No apologies from the manager. We will not return. They were more interested in getting food to the people going on the airboat rides.

Find another restaurant! I should have followed my instincts and left when there were no towels in the restroom. There is no way the reviews are legit unless people are reviewing bottled beer. I don’t think I’ve ever found a piece of bread I didn’t like and I couldn’t eat the bun from my sandwich. I noticed others had left their bun uneaten as well. The fries were the only edible thing we had. Catfish, shrimp, and hush puppies were all way below average. The waitress said she was a picky eater and only liked the chicken tenders, I see why after eating here. My daughter had them and they were better than the shrimp or catfish. To top it off the water tastes as though it were straight from the lake out back. You would think they could at least put a filtration system in for their drinking water.

My wife and I stopped by for lunch recently and were very disappointed. They advertise their gator bites are the best around but we didn't get any of those; we got a basket of bread crumbs. The pieces of gator were so small and pretty much all fried batter. We ate some of the fried batter and left. The worst gator bites I ever had.

Visit here every time I am in Orlando. Feels like old school Florida. Service is ALWAYS 5 stars ( and daughter in UCF hospitality university agrees). Food is 4 stars, but service and friendly casual atmosphere makes it 5. Alligator appetizer is a family favorite. Fish and chips is excellent, as is catfish plate.

I stopped in somewhat close to closing time. Dinner was quick, but I wasn't ”hurried” at all by the staff. Being from Richmond, VA, I wanted a quick, good local something I couldn't get back home. Gator tacos, cheese grits and AWESOME Key Lime Pie. It was the perfect late night meal. I'll definitely come back, probably in the late afternoon thru an earlier evening.

Lots of confusion with servers. Soup was cold. Hot food ended being good. 20 minutes to get waited in, 30-40 for our food, 20 minutes to get our cc back then the bill was wrong. Another 15 minutes to get the card back again.

The food is good but the service sucks worst ever. They need a good manger and some help and it may make it. As of right now go somewhere else unless you don’t mines waiting 2 hours for cold food .

We stopped for lunch on a Thursday. Pretty quiet, but a very out going waitress who was on it! Beers up quick, recommend some choices she likes. Fish tacos were very good! Bbq pulled pork also very good. Would go back. Looks like a fun place in season!

A friend were looking for something different to try since we were in a new area. After looking up restaurants nearby we found this one. I ordered gator tacos and my friend ordered mahi tacos with soup and coleslaw. I’m not sure how her mahi tacos were but the tacos I had with gator were to die for! We will definitely be returning if we’re ever in the area again!

Great afternoon snack and drinks. Enjoyed seeing Ryan at the bar. His mint juleps are amazing! Sat in the deck and enjoyed corn fritters and the view. Palm trees swaying, beautiful lake and gators swimming by. Everyone seemed to be really enjoying themselves. Will be back.
