Hammocks Trading Company Ratings and Reviews
First time trying this restaurant. We had a movie to catch, so we were in a bit of a hurry. Unfortunately, however, they kept us waiting for nearly 15 minutes. I had to go to the hostess podium to get some attention.
To the restaurant's credit, the manager came by and apologized profusely. He sent out an appetizer on the house. Again unfortunately, they didn't check with us about which appetizer we would like. They just sent the fried one. Since I had already ordered a fried seafood platter, this was a bit of fried overkill.
I will probably give them one more chance, and see if we like them better. My fried platter was good and her cioppino was delicious, albeit a little salty.
To add insult to injury, when we got to the movie, we found they had change the schedule on us that very day. That's what we get for relying on the printed newspaper instead of Fandango.
Our server was very good and knowledgeable about the menu and the food seemed very fresh and was very good. We went for the seafood and were not disappointed. Never heard of sheepshead fish but it was very good and our server was able to tell us all about it before we ordered. Value was also good. This was our third visit over several months and I'm sure we will be back, as the experience has been more than satisfactory each time. A nice little discovery.
Food at Hammock's is always fresh and delicious. We come each week for Happy Hour oysters on the half shell. This week, the oysters were the largest I've ever seen. You almost needed to cut them in half with a knife just to eat them. For half the price and twice the size, I have nothing to complain about. See you next week.
Always so fun. Six of us went to celebrate an anniversary. Some booths are perfect for six. Enjoyed trying new cocktails and love trying new fish specials. Best fish and chips in town. Also, best oysters ever. Shannon was great and really good at accommodating 6 people who can talk at the same time! It's always impressive when the chef/owner delivers meals. Both owners, William and Jason, make their presence known , and are super friendly.
Food is an outstanding value. Great food and reasonable prices. Great place for casual dining. Usually see a nice mix of diners, so people watching can be interesting. Highly recommend the lobster bisque soup. Fish is always fresh and very generous portions
We were three adults and t wo children eating at 2:45 on a Sunday, so it was quiet, as expected. The children has food from the children's menu and enjoyed it. We adults decided to have a selection of appetizers and sides. We were very disappointed that they were OUT of chicken wings!! How is a casual bear/restaurant OUT of chicken wings?? It seemed to us that there could have been easy solutions to that problem. We ultimately ordered the shrimp/lobster bisque, collards, fried green tomatoes, shrimp with garlic, and mixed fried appetizer. All were absolutely delicious! The chef-made hot vinegar they serve with the collards, as well as the remoulade, were exceptional and set off all the food choices. For dessert, adults shared a wonderful, FRESH peach (not canned) cobbler that "hit the spot". However, the children were forced to share a cookie and ice cream, because - you guessed it - it was the last cookie! The food is great here, service a bit lackluster, but something is truly amiss with kitchen management!
A local favorite for your seafood fix. Fresh catches daily plus menu staples like fish tacos and crab legs. $5 margaritas that are yummy. Great food quality and variety. Only negative is can get loud and the 4-top tables are too small if you actually have 4 people.
We've been to Hammocks several times....always good. But tonight just seemed average. Fried okra was bland, as was snapper special. No salt, pepper, cocktail or tartar offered. My daughter was given a quarter cup of butter to go with her biscuit (weird). And appetizer of mussels came with 2 rather small pieces of bread for 4 people, when we asked for more, they brought 3 more. My pet peeve is when the bread or other items are not the right number for people at he table. The server was nice, but rushed us through dinner. I would've had another cocktail or a glass of wine (I had 1), but she never asked....so our bill actually could've been bigger and therefore her tip. It's nice to be able to go someplace other than Red Lobster, I just wasn't impressed tonight....just meh.
The seafood was good, the service was terrible. Our server was not well-trained. She failed to notice many issues with missing items, drinks that needed to be refilled, etc. I will not bother to return to this restaurant. It is a long distance from my home & the interior decorations are uninspiring.
Good seafood choices: Oysters ($17/doz)--half-price everyday 4-6!
Trout, Catfish, Redfish, and Snapper--$15 to $28 for dinner.
Vegetable sides, southern-style, were delicious.
Good beer selection--inexpensive.
Great, casual service.
One drawback: the building was drafty and cold (wasn't even the coldest of nights)...server said it was always that way...
I'll be back--in the Summer.
From. 5 to a 2. First visit was fantastic. Saturday was the opposite. Poor service, waited 40 minutes for green tomatoes, shrimp dinner came out cold and the bathrooms were disgusting. I know this was a busy night, but clearly you didn't have enough staff. The experience was so bad all around, we will not be going back as the drive is to far for anything less than an all star performance.
