Located in Oviedo, Florida near Lake Jessup is the Black Hammock Restaurant. The Black Hammock includes a restaurant and outdoor bar with a view of the lake called the “Lazy Gator Bar.” The menu is “fish camp” style and includes everything from catfish and homemade desserts to chicken wings. While they have a variety of things on the menu, you definitely have to try their fried gator tail — not only is it delicious, but it's a true Central Florida culinary experience. The atmosphere is very casual and laid back. They also feature live music every weekend.

In addition to the bar and restaurant, Black Hammock includes airboat rides and alligator exhibits. Depending on the time of day you may even get a chance to pet a live alligator as an employee will carry one around. This is a real treat if you have any kids with you.

If you decide to go on an airboat ride, make sure you hold onto your ticket stub as you will get 10% off your restaurant bill. If taking your own boat out on the water is more your speed, Black Hammock includes a boat launch that is available for a fee. No matter what activity you choose to enjoy while at the Black Hammock, you are sure to have a great time. Spend the day in the area enjoying nature and then stop back in for some gator tail and a cold beer.
