It's a great place to check out but the restaraunt is just mediocre. Lots of heavily fried foods in the gator bites but it's not terrible. Prices are reasonable and staff was very nice.

You might be coming here after an airboat ride, or weekend entertainment in the waterside bars, and be put off by the external appearance of the restaurant. Truly, it could use a makeover, but the inside is much nicer. It is unfortunately NOT on the water, which would have been very nice. The result is that I have always ordered... More

Wife, friends, and I stopped out, hoping to see some gators (besides the ones in the cages), have a couple of drinks, and eat some food. 15 minutes just to get acknowledged and take our drink order didn't get things off to the best start with our small group. The gator tail sampler was all overcooked, and we as a... More

To be honest we were completely prepared for this to be a tourist trap. We purchased the "Ride and Dine" package and as we approached the restaurant after the ride we thought, "great we've been had" but once inside we were greeted by an absolutely charming and beautiful waitress (Erin) and it just got better from there. When you order... More

Food is always good and service is excellent. For the courageous you may get to have your picture taken with a baby gator. Right on Lake Jessup and a bit off the beaten path but worth the visit.

Priced as fine dining but not. Meat fish camp atmosphere but after a long drive to get there was shocked at the prices. Won't return.

Stopped by for a beer while out exploring with my Mom. We ended up having supper. ordered the 2 ounce gator bite appetizer done 'Florida' style. They were wonderful little chunks of gator goodness, some of the best I have had. Mom got the Blackened Chicken Club Sandwich. She enjoyed the sandwich and the Cole Slaw that accompanies it. I...

New menu by Executive Chef Barth! This menu is a marriage of your favorite "Fish Camp Fare" dishes such as Hand Breaded Catfish & Battered Shrimp, Gator Bites and more, plus NEW "City Fare" dishes like Beef Short Ribs Braised in a Cabernet Sauce, Osso Bucco Style Lamb Shank and more! Chef Barth has worked as the Executive Chef at the Chefs De France restaurant at the French Pavilion in Epcot, Walt Disney World for 13 years with world famous Chef Paul Bocuse. Prior to joining the Black Hammock Restaurant, Chef Barth served as a Chef Instructor, Lead Chef Instructor, and Culinary Department Chair for the very prestigious Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts Orlando for over 11 years. The Black Hammock is an award winning attraction like nowhere else! Our attraction includes a lakeside bar, airboat rides, full service restaurant, free wildlife exhibit and more! Just a stone's throw away from Orlando's busiest attractions and home of the BEST fried gator tail in town.
