It was so good we ate here two nights! Stopped for dinner before beach bonfire during Sea Witch festival. Extended happy hour and food specials were a pleasant surprise. Generous food portions, the burgers, fries and soups were excellent for a small bar. Lots of TV's for watching sports. We stopped again for dinner late Sunday night, the place was... More

We stopped for breakfast on Sunday morning but people were eating & drinking at the bar with only 4-5 tables and no place to eat. It was awkward with the Seat yourself policy in such a dark place so we glanced at the breakfast sandwich options and decided to try something else. They might be a good bar atmosphere but... More

This hidden gem is the perfect place for relaxing in a comfortable, dockside environment between the family friendliness of Bethany Beach and the Dewey beach scene. Live music almost every weekend, the ability to sit outside at the bar or eat at one of the picnic tables in the sandpit provide both a drinkers and fun-for-families kind of atmosphere. We... More

Went here for lunch and got fish tacos. Unfortunately, there was hardly any fish in them. We also ordered a shrimp wrap which had only 4 shrimp in the whole thing. For the price we expected more.

Beautiful out of the beaten path location. Great place for a drink and appetizer, the crab balls were excellent. It gets crowded so there may be a wait and bring your own bug spray to keep the pests away. Also great for families, has a sandy area and music

We just happened onto this restaurant. It is the beat. We used to live in Key West. This bar took us back there. I had the crab cake sandwich and was not disappointed there are palm trees. There is a fire pit and a stage. This is all on the water. Love it

Starting on a good note-the french fries were good. This may be the worst restaurant I have ever been to. We waited 40 minutes to sit at a shelf table. No biggie. We got our own drinks at the inside bar. Super slow and slovenly girl bartender. Finally seated , we waited about 10 minutes for our server. This person... More

I love fish tacos, and that's what I ordered. Yuck is an understatement. Very small portions. Would not recommend to anyone. Waitress was nice and the atmosphere was really geared to adults. Bar scene. Beautiful scenery by the water. There are two hammerheads restaurants. We ate at the one at the Indian river inlet. I recommend passing on this place.

Stumbled upon this place while checking out the bayside and boats and was pleasantly surprised! Lovely outdoor setting, good food and nice happy hour! Wings were awesome, crab balls were huge and mouthwatering and the shrimp was gigantic! Only bummer was it said a band would be playing for happy hour an nothing was going on, was kinda quiet and...
