The only place open in February.

We want there in February and it was snowing, couldn't find any other place open to eat, but I'm not disappointed at all, crab meat sandwich was good.

This bar has decent but limited menu, what they do make they do well. Disappointing Beer list, what does it take to get a dark beer?

We wanted to go to Nalu but it wasn't open til 12 so we stumbled to this place. The bartender was nice who served us but the food was not good. My friend got a just OK omelette, and her toast you could have hammered in a nail with. The fruit was sour tasting. My pancakes were good, but I'm... More

We have been at Hammerheads Dockside many times and hav alway enjoyed ourselves. Tonight we did not get seated after 45 minutes. There were many empty tables. We spoke to the general manager and he was rude and condenscending. We left Dockside and stopped in at the Dewey location for a nice meal. It is a shame that one poor... More

I stopped into Hammerheads today for lunch not expecting much more than burgers and fries. And although they did have burgers and fries, there were many more choices on the menu and much better than I anticipated. I ordered the Tuna Luau. Spiced tuna cooked to your liking, with wasabi mayo, red onions and pineapple salsa served in a wrap.... More

The fish tacos and BBQ pork wrap were both excellent. However the sitting area was unpleasant for several reasons. The inside was small and hot with no air movement so we chose outside. The sun was beating on us along an outside counter, where the four of us had to sit along a right angle so that our backs were... More

Went there for breakfast, worst food ever, anywhere, anytime. Eggs so crusty on the bottom you need a knife to cut them, soggy toast, choice only white or rye. Bacon totally burnt. Really I have never had a meal where everything on the plate was inedible. The fruit was canned pineapple mixed with grapes and tasted like it was almost... More

We went here for breakfast, because we were looking for a spot that served Bloody Marys. They were good- large and spicy. What they call a mimosa is served in a plastic up with ice. Not what I think of as a mimosa, but it was good. The food was good. My Key West wrap had plenty of shrimp. The... More

Great outdoor area right on the waterway. Drinks reasonably priced and good food. And the band played on!

Was told by a mutual friend to try, so I did. Great atmosphere, outdoors, palm trees, two bars (one inside and one outside), but selection of beer (no draft) and wine was a little short for me. Food disappointing. I ordered the lump crab cake (as stated on the menu) and it was a good price, but I do not... More
