Good hangout

Good outdoor hangout grab a beer and some oysters and listen to some live music on the water at the wharf area. Like to go here and watch the sunset. Full menu & bar. Not anything fancy but burgers, sandwiches, etc...

This place was nothing special. The service was either so slow that my food was cold or the kitchen was way too far from my outdoor table. The servers were really nice, but a little too laid back and the bartender was so loud complaining about his lack of A/C that I just felt awkward. Their happy hour has good... More

Went with extended family and only had about a 20 minute wait for a table. Ordered 3 rolls of sushi and they were fantastic. Then the grouper cheeks were just as good. Then came the main dishes of blackened grouper, blackened halibut, seafood platter and chicken. All were magnificent. Will definitely go back.

Nice atmosphere by the bay but it's a little too loud for my taste. The food is average at best and severely overpriced. If you want to drop in, just grab a drink and enjoy the music, then save your hearing and move on out to the peer to watch the mullet jump.

Stopped for a late lunch. We were seated at the outside decked area overlooking the docked boats. I ordered the fried coconut shrimp and my fiancé ordered the half rack of ribs. Both dishes were perfectly seasoned and prepared. Typical sides of fries and coke slaw were also good. Server had a friendly disposition. He did try to push the... More

We ate at Hammerhead's today for lunch. It was excellent. We shared a grouper sandwich and the blackened grouper tacos. Absolutely fresh fish, freshly prepared, and the portions were big. The service was prompt and several staff members checked on us as well as the other lunch diners. Live music was playing outside - with a great view, great service... More

Enjoyed the boiled snow crab. Good for a change from traditional seafood menu items. Requires work, but worth it as meaty claws. Friendly service and fun atmosphere. Enjoyable Caribbean music and outdoor dining experience. Good value. Busy vibrant scene.

The view here for a sunset is hard to beat, that being said - service = miserable. Unorganized and let's just hope you don't need a refill. Food = not the best in town. Slow to come out and hopefully it came out perfect because you'll see no one until they being the check. Live music was entertaining yet so... More

The food was not really good but not really bad except my Dad's calamari which was disgusting and floating in oil. The prices are high and the food just doesn't justify it. Their business is based on location and view.
