Here in the Sunshine State, springtime is synonymous with seafood. Whether we’re fishing for it, or chowing down at a delicious seafood festival, we can’t get enough fresh-from-the-sea flavor!
Fortunately, when you’re craving seafood this spring (and all year long), The Black Hammock Restaurant is here to help. Read on to discover some of our favorite seafood picks—which all happen to pair perfectly with one of our exciting Orlando airboat rides.
Attend a local seafood festival
The Sunshine State abounds with seafood festivals at this time of year, many of which take place in and around Central Florida. A few upcoming events include Orlando’s Seafood & Jazz Festival or Homosassa’s Shrimpapalooza, both on March 14, or the St. Augustine Lions Seafood Festival, celebrating its 39th year March 20-22! These foodie festivals can be paired with a weekend trip to The Black Hammock for the ultimate seafood excursion.
Of course, the flavor doesn’t stop there!
Dig in after a thrilling airboat ride
At The Black Hammock Restaurant, you can fill up before a thrilling ride, or kick back and relax with your seafood favorites while recounting the day’s adventures! We have seafood options for every appetite, including…
Many Black Hammock birds love to snack on crustaceans—and our appetite isn’t too different! There’s nothing like delicious, snackable shrimp, and we have plenty of ways to enjoy this seafood staple at The Black Hammock Restaurant, such as our Peel & Eat Shrimp, Blackened Shrimp Po’ Boys, Shrimp & Grits or flavorful, perfectly crispy Fried Shrimp Platter.
Catfish is classic lakefront fare, so we’ve made sure to include it as part of our Black Hammock menu! Share a round of Catfish Nuggets with the table, or dig in with a Catfish Sandwich or classic entrée, fried to golden brown perfection and served alongside French fries and housemade coleslaw.
Tropical mahi goodness
Craving food with tropical flair? The colorful mahi mahi is a favorite of Florida anglers and foodies, too, and can be enjoyed here at The Black Hammock in a variety of ways. Try our Grilled or Blackened Mahi Tacos, Mahi Sandwich or Mahi Mahi entrée, grilled or blackened and served with delicious rice and seasonal veggies.
Warm, cozy chowder
