When vacationing in Sandestin, my husband and I decided to go for early appetizers and drinks at Hammerheads Happy Hour. I got one of the giant signature drinks, which was a pretty darn good bargain at half price. We also ordered several appetizers to share. All were good. There was live music, a beautiful view of the Harbor, and friendly... More

Went in for a quick happy hour drink, and an appetizer. Great view of the water, with a very long walkway, getting you closer to the sunset. The nachos with chicken, very good. They also had a great band playing as the sun left for the day.

Good location, great view, great eating area. Chips and salsa were very good and plentiful. Boiled shrimp were very good and plentiful. Service was very slow and we were not in a hurry. Having a groupon made this receive 4 stars instead of 3

We stopped here for a quick lunch and drinks after riding bikes all morning. The service was great, the food was great, and being able to sit outside and enjoy the fantastic Destin weather topped it all off!

food ok and inexpensive, beer is cold, but other than that it is a strange place. Went there on a Sunday evening, there was a few locals there, it was hard to tell who was working there and who was just hanging around. If you want a raw experience with the locals and you don't mind foul language this is... More

The restaurant is right on the water so it is a great location. I wish I could say something good about the food but I can't. I got the rice and red bean platter which consisted of white rice covered in refried beans. The cost was $15. Everyone in our party thought the food was just so, so and nothing... More

I ate at Hammerheads for lunch this week. Had the grouper sandwich, it was priced about 50% more than comparable places. It was a good, not great sandwich. The grouper was hanging out on all quadrants which was a plus, but since it was fried it wasn't as flavorful as it could have been if grilled. Service was average. Nice... More

My husband and I ate here in August and had a great experience. We sat on the covered patio which was very comfortable. Ate around 5:30 so it was a little early. Crab legs were reasonably priced and seasoned perfectly. Their specialty drinks were delicious. We also cheated and got their key lime pie dessert which was well worth it.... More

We visited hammerheads on a Friday night. There were other guests but it was far from busy. However, the waiter disappeared for a long time before getting drink orders and then again before taking our food orders. The food itself was ok. Not bad, but nothing special, and you would expect more for the price category.
