I take my daughter her and she had a blast on the air boats. Came with friends to have dinner and drinks. Great live music.

airboat ride was lovely and tour guide very knowledgeable but due to 90 degree weather the guide told us gators like to stay under water where it is cool, so go early am if hot weather you will see more!

This is an off-the-beaten-path type of place... quirky but fascinating. Decent food. Great place to see alligators peeping above the water under the walkways!

We have dined here, had drinks here, listened to music here. It is a nice place to go and relax. It needs some updating but overall we go there all the time and still enjoy it.

The pictures and many of the reviews appear to be about the Black Hammock Restaurant and fish camp with boat ramp. The Black Hammock Wilderness Area is a couple miles east of here on Howard St. The Wilderness Area is a beautiful place for hiking, where you can walk through a mixed hardwood swamp (on a boardwalk) and Pine forest....

Great place to take your out of town visitors spend some time in gift shop boat ride or just relax with a cool drink. Very reasonable drinks and food

This place is awesome. You can see smaller gators in one area, larger in another, with the chance to buy hot dogs or chicken wings to feed the gators. There are parrots too, but the coolest part is seeing gators swimming in the lake.
