Diner Reviews
  • "Was in the area and in the mood for some Floridian inspired seafood. Nice place, busy. Menu looked good but service slow. Ordered a beer which was flat, ordered another type - same deal. Ended up drinking it and wished later i hadnt. Shared a crabcake - looked like a hockey puck - shredded - not lump - meat and tons of filler. Entrees were shrimp po boy (excellent) fries (cold) and grouper special. Fish was about 3 oz, 3 pieces of asparagus for $25. Simply not good value and certainly not Floridian standard. Waiter was either absent or there at the wrong time - brought the desert menu before we finished dinner, muttered the F-bomb when we asked him to leave. Bill was wrong 3 hours later had serious stomach issue - suspect the beer"

  • "When Hammocks first opened we were a little suspicious. Not much to look at outside and decorations are somewhat minimal inside. However, the food we think is the best when it comes to seafood in all of Atlanta. Weare from Boston, so we know our seafood; and so does Hammocks. The cuts of fish are better than what we get in Florida. Serving sizes are fair, but not enormous, however, when added with sides you will leave full. What is best is the variety of fish, not just the quality. A lot of the fish is wild and otherwise caught in sustainable ways. Further, if you are gluten free there are many options, including gluten free beer (Estrella's Daura). We highly recommend reservations as even during the week they may be on a wait."

  • "I was very pleased with the food and the service. Actually, I was shocked. I expected worse, given the look of the buidling and the location. The grilled oysters were out of this world! My guests all ordered different items and they were all very pleased."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Favorable pricing on a couple drinks for $5. Great idea. Tasty food and well presented. A bit pricey though and noise level plays hell on hearing, hearing aids and hearing defected people. If you enjoy good food and loud noise while you dine with a fair priced cocktail as a starter, I recommend it!"

  • "Looks like a crab shack, but het ready for a treat. The food is surprisingly delicious and a cut above in quality, freshness, and attention to detail. Great cocktails (try the Horse's Neck). Oysters done many ways are the house specialty ."

  • "We go to Hammocks again and again because it is consistently fantastic. On this occasion we had 6 little kids and 3 adults. We were wonderfully taken care of and our kids were treated wonderfully. We have been here for date nights and love hanging out at the bar. Justin and Laken are awesome. Jason and Chef William have a gem of a restaurant."

  • "I just moved here from FL where fish is very common and fresh. This place completely blew my mind and reminded me of a lunch spot we used to eat at on the beach. The specials are awesome and the food is great. If you like mixed cocktails, they make everything in house including their infused tequila which they use for margaritas.. LEGIT!"

  • "We had a family birthday at Hammocks, and it was chosen because of the menu and being midway for everyone attending. None of us had eaten there before. We really enjoyed the ceviche appetizer. The coconut shrimp were the best I've had since my vacation in the islands. Not only were the shrimp big, but the plate was full of them. Everyone else's meal was well prepared and tasty. We sat on the patio, and service was a little slow, but we were in no big hurry. The birthday boy got a free dessert - the chocolate espresso creme brulee. It was very good."

  • "How have i not been here before?!?! Great seafood. Shrimp, steamed oysters, oyster shots, grouper....we tried just about everything. The ambience is very good, although i will say that it was a little strange to be surrounded by a backgammon tournament (seriously). It didn't bother us, it was just odd. Service was good. Great drink selection. We'll be back - the entire family loved it (that rarely happens)"

  • "I was a little hesitant to try Hammocks since it was not situated in the main restaurant row of Sandy Springs, but the food reviews were good. Our party of 4 was promptly seated on a Saturday evening, the drinks were really good, and dinner was terrific! Perhaps the best prepared seafood that I have had in a long time, and the side dishes were excellent as well. I'll be back with my friends next time we are looking for great seafood with a laid back atmosphere."

  • "We were so well taken care of, and the drinks were yummy, but the actual food was not. We had 4 adults and 4 children, order three appetizers and 7 meals, so we had a good sampling of what was available, and none of it was outstanding. None of it was horrible either but for the prices they charge one would expect exceptional or close to it. Much better food can be had for much better prices at other restaurants nearby"

  • "My wife and I eat at Hammocks Trading Company almost every weekend. The HTC salad and baked salmon are fantastic. We love salmon and this is one of the best recipes anywhere. The waiters and waitresses are very attentive without being intrusive."

  • "This is my go to restaurant for all occasions! The staff is incredibly good and the food is FRESH and superb! It's privately owned and operated which I adore too. I am a big fan of their Oysters, Grouper Sandwich, Shrimp and Grits and many other items. They are all wonderful. I eat there 2x or more a week and have introduced numerous friends who also return frequently."

  • "Absolutely delicious smoked brisket! I have not had better in Atlanta. So thrilled to have visited this restaurant for the second time, hitting a home run on my dinner last night."

  • "casual atmosphere but noisy. outdoor seating would be great during cooler days/nights. Service was outstanding -- from the time we were greeted at the door to our server. I tried a fried dish which was pretty heavily fried but my friend ordered the mahi mahi and it was delicious. definitely a neighborhood gem and very kid friendly."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We have never been disappointed with the food. Always delicious and creative. Many choices whether you prefer fish, beef, pork, and all yummy and interesting. Great if you just want to nosh on appetizers. Friendly staff who recognizes regulars. A must if you live in Sandy Springs and worth the trip if traveling from surrounding areas. Almost hate to brag on the location, it might become too popular, mmmmmmm."

  • "We appreciated that the manager comped a dessert for us, but it was very disappointing how many things on the menu were not available (and it was early in the evening). I had to re-order three times and then gave up and ordered an all appetizer meal. Our first experience there was better, and since the food we did get this time was good and the location is very easy, we'll try again."

  • "The food was excellent the service was good!! I was expecting the atmosphere to be different. This is not the place you go for a romantic date."

  • "What a great meal! First of all, spaghetti tacos for kids . . and for dessert, they have a little Smores Station! So KIDS LOVE THIS PLACE! For adults, great fish! Great Fries! Great Salad! Overall, great spot . . . They may be in the midst of decorating, I'm not sure?? So maybe that's why it seemed a little blah inside, nothing on the walls, maybe they just put up a fresh coat of paint? Only thing missing for me is the tropical ambience - - there are few hammocks on the ceiling. Definitely needs more tropical bling, but I'll be back in about a month and check it out again. Totally think they must have been in renovation mode - - they just need to say that when you are seated :)"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Good food experience - the fish is really good, but our view from our table was straight into the kitchen...a little yucky. A screen would help fix that for those few tables on the far wall. And, it was noisy, but only after a large group of ladies came in. We'll definitely go back! YUM!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "There was really nothing wrong with our food, it just did not wow us. Might try it again if we are in the neighborhood."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The food was great but it was deafening. They need to put up some glass walls between rooms to lessen the noise level. I would not call the noise level energetic...but rather noxious. But great service, great food!!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Met two friends for lunch. Everything was delightful from the first greeting, the decor, the white wine sangria, the grouper sandwiches, the fish tacos, etc. right until we left. The place reminded us of restaurants we had been to on the east coast, e.g., Long Island, Jersey Shore, Cape Cod."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I have eaten here many times, and the food is always good. My favorite dish is the salmon in parchment, but I have gotten oysters and scallops as well. Every time I bring someone here, they always want to come back again. It's hard to leave without having the s'mores for dessert!"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Service was mediocre. Our very pleasant server seemed to be bogged down by a server in training. We waited for way too long before even drinks order taken, then table not cleared in a timely way or glasses refilled etc. Entrees did not come out at the same time. The food was OK, nothing memorable or good enough to give a reason to ever return."

  • "Best seafood around. Owners are on site and are an integral part of the well run management and ambiance of the restaurant. Friendly and competent waiters. The oysters are fresh and fantastic! Best fried seafood platter! Scallops are awesome! Try the strawberry-rhubarb cobbler dessert-a real winner!"

  • "I came with my children and a few of their friends for dinner. The kids meals were generous and a great deal. My daughter, 9 yrs old, had the baked salmon that was recently written about in the AJC and she loved it! I order the fish tacos. They can be grilled, blackened or fried. I opted for the grilled and they were perfection on a plate! The fish was plump and the produce was very fresh. The seasoning was done well, not too spicy with just a little kick. Our server was very attentive and knew the menu well. Highly recommend for family dining or a fun night out!"

  • "My wife and I took some friends here Saturday night. The restaurant was full. We were intrigued with the great choices on the menu supplemented by some tempting specials. We tried a sampling of both menu and a special. The menu is primarily seafood which we savoured. In addition to excellent food, our server was knowledgeable about menu and attentive. Eating is a social experience for us. At the end of the evening, we all remarked about how easy it had been to talk while enjoying great food. We are adding this to our regular list of places to enjoy food with friends. "
