Had a great lunch with visiting mother and nephew. Associates were friendly and helpful. Always a pleasant place to lunch and visit.

The restaurant is delicious. Staff is very nice and prompt. The Lazy Gator bar is nice for a weekend with dancing and hanging with friends.

Was looking for a new restaurant for a family night out. Read reviews of a new exec chef at the Black Hammock. Atmosphere rustic and clean, music choice brought us back - great selection, food quality was fresh and delicious. Highly recommend - Margaritas were one of the best I ever had. Great place for the locals and a great way for tourist to see the "real florida".

I love this place! Located between Sanford and Winter Park on beautiful Lake Jesup in Oveido, It could not be farther away from it all. Don't look for plastic castles or imaginary lands here...THIS is the place where the REAL Florida lives! You can take an airboat ride over one of the most beautiful and unspoiled lakes in the state to see alligators in their natural habitat or an amazing variety of indigenous birds roosting on an uninhabited island. This, by the way is the home of the ORIGINAL Florida airboat ride. The guides are locals, friendly and KNOW this lake! Afterwards, you can belly up lakeside at The Lazy Gator Bar to whet your whistle and enjoy the view... on the weekends, enjoying one of the many local bands that perform there. I have not been to the restaurant since Chef Barth took over the kitchen, but, in the past have enjoyed many casual, friendly, AFFRODABLE meals in the rustic dining room! I suggest the Alligator...this is DEFINITELY the place to try it! Seriously, folks...THIS is one of the places that make living in Central Florida TRULY special. It's a little out of the way but well worth the effort! Follow the signs and watch out for the wildlife. We Floridians YIELD for alligators! :-)

The Black Hammock Fish Camp is a great spot in Central Florida to listen to music, airpboat and nature rides. The restaurant has been revamped in the last couple of years. The food has improved by measures and we enjoyed a southern comfort food with a modern twist. The Roasted Tomato soup was outstanding. The Cheese Grits and Shrimp was some of the best I have ever had. Also the gator tail was great. A nice destination with good food and fair prices. If you are a local it worth revisiting, great chances in the restaurant
