The service was good, but the food was over-priced and average at the very best. There are much better restaurants in the area if your willing to take a short 5-10 minute drive.

This place is located in the Sandestin Resort and it takes a bit of work to find the location. I suppose that if you were staying in Sandestin it would be very convenient. The food is "ok", but as others have noted very overpriced in my opinion for the quality. Servers and atmosphere are friendly and defintely a nice place... More

The food was good which is why I'm giving it a 2. However, if you're going to pay those prices, go upstairs to Popeye's. Sad to say, won't be back.

What a great place to enjoy a friendly lunch with friends & our four-legged friends. They provide pet bowls & a doggy menu. The server was very helpful & pleasant. Our dogs enjoyed fresh water & hot dogs with fries. The food was hot & tasty. The music & atmosphere was terrific. We will definitely return again!

We ordered the Snow Crab Bucket and some calamari to share. The calamari was very good. The crab was average. I'm glad we didn't pay full price due to finding a great deal of a coupon on a deal website.

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
