We visited this restaurant pre pandemic and the lobster rolls were amazing, now they shrunk to this tiny thing with a piece of bread folded not even a real bun and it was soggy as heck. The service was amazing. The alcohol drinks were very weak. Not worth the money at all. The huspuppies were amazing. But we won’t be back

The service was very good. I had beer battered shrimp and they were over cooked. My husband had a smash burger and it was to his liking. We are long supporters of Hammocks. They have changed their men, removing some of the long time favorites. Perhaps this is due to the pandemic and availability, but I have trouble with the new one.

We enjoy seafood and oysters and this place did not disappoint.
The grouper sandwich was “Florida “ fresh and grilled to perfection.
Oysters were also excellent, however the crackers were stale.
We’ll be back!

Our party of 5 had a great meal on their patio which was very private! June, our waiter, could not have been more attentive and gracious. Raw oysters (yum!!), oysters Rockefeller, hush puppies, fish tacos, blackened redfish, sauteed trout, collards, spinach, cucucumber-tomato-onion salad. Everything was cooked to perfection and served hot (except the raw oysters - served icy cold). Owner Jason Selzer does not disappoint at this wonderful restaurant that is a staple in our community!

I ordered a grilled grouper sandwich, and the piece of fish was about 1/3 the size of the bun and the bun was normal size. An over abundance of remoulade sauce was perhaps the compensation. The slaw was good. My husband enjoyed his fried oyster po boy.
Our dining companions both ordered the grilled trout which was dry and over cooked, but the mac and cheese and the sweep potato fries were good.

The food was good, especially the hush-puppies, and the outdoor seating was wonderful but the highlight of the night was the staff! From the bartender to the wait staff, we haven't had better in a long time. I wish I remembered their names so I could give special shout-outs.

The food was excellent. The service was not great. We waited an hour for our food. The manager came and comped us for our drinks when she said our food was wrong. This was after an hour of us waiting. Then, they spilled a glass of water on us. We had to ask for replacement napkins. They didn’t check back with us until we asked for the check. Some servers were doing a great job as I noticed them from afar, but our server wasn’t great. I would’ve been more understanding if he had provided better service and was attentive.

The floor was sticky and the chairs were sticking to the floor so bad feet on the chairs came off and were stuck to the floor. Food wasn't seasoned the best. The service good and the drinks were really good. Because it seems like a nice spot for the night crowd with the bar and outdoor seating id recommend for that.

Sat outside so noise level was low. The bang bang shrimp appetizers was disappointing as it seemed frozen. We ordered the bang bang shrimp and the calamari. The calamari was good. The entrees were very good. Service was ok, average at best.

Parking can be a challenge at this restaurant that is very reminiscent of a casual Florida seafood diner. Our service was excellent (and always has been) but the table next to us wasn’t as fortunate with their server. Drinks arrived quickly as did our soups and entrees. All were very good. The she crab soup is excellent. They have had trouble with their food supplier so some menu items (crab) were not available. Overall a pleasant evening. I’ve been several times and will continue to return.

Everything was great except for the parking. I could not find a parking place on either side of the restaurant and I was late as a result. Our table outside was given to someone else. The two businesses on either side were full as well so the only way I could park was across the street and have to cross back over Roswell Road. UGH!

Great oysters and seafood. Beachy feel to the restaurant. Wish it wasn't located on a noisy street but otherwise great. Not cheap, but no good seafood is.

Simply did not live up to what we expected, service was slow, jalapeño cheese oysters were close to being inedible, and the rest of the entrees were just okay. The jalapeño hush puppies were the only item worth talking about.

The booth we sat in had a spring poking through the vinyl and it ripped the seat out of my shorts!! I told the waitress, but she didn’t seem overly concerned.

No big deal, lesson learned, first and last trip!

Have been excited to come here for a while. Unfortunately we probably won’t be back. The food did not taste good. Even though the service was very slow, we are understanding with Covid short-staffing, so that did not play a part in our feelings. There are so many more better ATL restaurants that deserve our service. Wish it could have been better.
