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

Medium well burger came out rare to medium Waitress NEVER came back to table and actually didn't even see her to wave her over to the table due to working other tables I'm sure.

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. Tuna dip was spicy and little watery (too much mayo) but not bad. Grouper was fried with spicy Cajun batter. Tarter sauce is actually a spicy Cajun mayo concoction. Grouper platter... More

Hammerheads is one of those beach vacation eateries that has average food! It was okay but not a place I'd visit again. Somewhat pricey for what you get on your plate! What's that saying, "It is what it is!" It's a nice location and has good music and atmosphere. An appetizer and drink would be fine!

Great customer service, great placement in Destin, and most importantly, FANTASTIC oysters! These are by far the best oysters you will ever have all thanks to Hammerheads! Keep up the great work.
