Located on the bay at the Baytowne Wharf in the Sandestin development the restaurant had a live band performing and proximity to excellent sunset views over the bay. That's the good news. With NO draft beers on tap you are left to order bottled beer with a $5.00 price tag for domestic and $5.50 for import varieties. Then there is... More

This was the best grouper sandwich I think I have ever had, but my husband had ordered it and it was enough for us to share. Had I know that it was $20 I would not have even thought about getting it. But is was delicious and big enough for both of us so I guess it was too overly... More

We have been here 4 or 5 times in the last 2 years. We keep going back for the view, the live band, and the overall atmosphere. The kids hula hoop and dance to the band and generally have a great time. I missed the name of the bands, but the band led by the Neil McCoy look-a-like who plays... More

Kids meal came in a boat and our 10 year old couldn't finish the helping of french fries, shrimp, and package of Oreos. The shrimp po boy came on a huge bun with lots of shrimp in... More

We've been to Hammerheads several times over the years and still the same. Basic vacation eatery with outdoor seating and live band. Little pricy for the food you get.
