    We read about the owners' backgrounds, and heard from a neighbor about their positive experience, and were motivated to visit for the first time. The fish and chips ($15) was extremely greasy and was nowhere near meeting a reasonable standard. The mixed drink ($9) was 1.5 oz. of product and a tall glass full of ice. To be fair, my spouses' shrimp and grits was very good, and clearly met expectations.

    My wife and I visited Hammocks after hearing about the grouper sandwich on Atlanta Eats. We were greated by the owner/manager and seated quickly. The fried appetizer platter was tasty, but the portion size was small. The grouper sandwich was fine, but definitely not worth making a special trip over. My wife was disappointed because her fish tacos came covered in slaw, which may have been mentioned on the menu, but she didn't remember seeing that or else she would have ordered something different. The staff seemed polite and did a good job taking care of us.

    Admittedly, I tried it because it was featured on Atlanta Eats and I love seafood. Read recent reviews, which were mostly poor, and chose to ignore them and try it anyway. Food did not feel gourmet at all, felt like Red Lobster. Fries were overcooked and underseasoned, fish was more breading than actual fish, food overall felt cheap and uninspired. Wish the prices reflected it b/c this place is terribly overpriced. Service was marginal. The location looks like an old Joe's Crabshack that they just threw some modern hardware in to "update" it.

    Let's be honest. This place isn't like going to one of those fancy, high end restaurants in Buckhead or Midtown...it's better. The food at Hammocks is second to none and you will be hard pressed to find something on the menu you don't like. Their oysters are some of the best in the city, and the fish tacos might be the best you'll have this side of California. Make it a point to come back more than once because you will want to try everything at least once

    If you are a fan of fish and chips (grouper) British style this is the place to go. There beer batter is just like you would find in an English pub but better because they are using Grouper instead of Cod. Staff is friendly and food is hot. We will return

    Been at Hammocks several times before and had a good experience. This time the restaurant was not prepared for the table of 8, even though reservations had been made. Service was poor and if not for the owner/manager, the event would have been 1 star. New menu, OK - why change the fish soup - it was perfect. Gumbo needs to be redone and served HOT! Salmon still a gem! Pricing seems a tad higher (too high). We will try again with a smaller party with hopefully better results.

    The entire menu is fresh, cooked to perfection and delicious! You can't go wrong with your choice here. No worries if you do not like seafood! They have plenty of choices. This is also a great spot for Gluten Free diners. We love the salmon baked in parchment paper with roasted root vegetables, the mix fry ( love the fried lemons), the HTC salad with sundries peaches and apple cider vinaigrette is amazing. My husband loves the snapper, catfish and filet! Our 7 year old orders grilled shrimp and our 3 year old loves the homemade Mac and Cheese and backyard s'mores! The staff could not be more friendly and attentive! Try the ginger peach sangria! Great bar drinks !!!
