I have been here on several occasions because I love escargot and frog legs. Sadly, they've taken the snails off the menu, however the frog legs cooked in garlic and butter are first-rate. The last time I went I ordered the trout almondine and it was one of the best dishes I've ever had. My husband ordered the fish and... More

Great portions, good prices. Recommend ride and dine airboat tickets to make the most of the trip. We had chicken fingers and fries. My son wasn't interested in gator bites LOL There isn't a kids menu, but portions are generous enough to share. Service was mediocre, but I'd still go back.

The Black Hammock is a little tricky to find. It sits on the shore of Lake Jessip and has Gators outside to see. It also has a baby gator inside in a fish tank. The food is very good and they have items like frog legs, gator bites and all the standard stuff.

This is one of those old Florida type of places. It's tucked away on the south shores of Lake Jesup on a country road that winds back into the swamp. We've eaten there twice now and really enjoyed the vibe. Next to the restaurant are a couple of bars with some nightlife. During the days there are airboat rides on... More

Food is okay for this establishment - you can get alligator and other items. But I wouldn't go there for the food, I would go there for the location. I do not know where they get their alligator from - but there are a bunch out there! There are 2 bars and a restaurant that you can order from -... More

Family meets here during Thanksgiving holiday. We enjoy a break from the traditional turkey and fixins. Some cold beer and gator bites start the meal. All the good items have been great. Kids enjoyed their food as well.

Black Hammock is a hidden gem. Known mostly only to locals, its hidden on the banks of alligator infested Lake Jessup on the north side of Oviedo Try the gator tacos! They're awesome!

After sitting at the table for 10 minutes without anyone greeting us, finally had to get some one. The server, Male never got his name, came over. When the food came out it was very cold, and nasty. I will never visit the restaurant again.

Always fun to take out of town guests to Black Hammock to eat, drink and see the large old alligator! Never tire of visiting this restaurant/bar. If you like eating gator, they have that too!

The Black Hammock has a separate bar called the Lazy Gator where food is brought from the Black Hammock restaurant. The music and drinks there were good, but we made a huge mistake ordering the peel and eat shrimp. The 1 lb basket probably contained less than half a pound of mushy, overcooked, limp shrimp that we couldn't eat. They... More

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.
