Live music good oysters

I had a Groupon for this place, so we decided to meet others for drinks one evening. There was a live band playing that night, and they were pretty good. The drinks were ok, but the grilled oysters were tasty and enjoyed by all. I wouldn't visit Hammerheads normally but it was worth the visit using... read more

We came down for a late Spring Break. This is important because if it were an early spring break, I could accept some of the problems the restaurant had. They might be closed for the winter, I'm not sure. All I know is they weren't ready to be open. Our server was American, but spoke terrible English. I don't mean... More

Hammerheads is one of those places my wife and I have tried a few times. We've never been particularly impressed with the food or the service. Tonight's dinner only served to reinforce our impression of the restaurant in general. The place is "relaxed." The food doesn't seem to be prepared with any great deal of imagination, dedication, or pride. The... More

Food is good and the views of the bay is awesome! Nightly entertainment as well. If you like drinks, then the hurricane is for you!

You need to go to Baytown first of all. Hammerheads was a great choice. Great food. Great atmosphere. Long line, but they told us when we would be seated, so we hit a frozen daiquiri shop, and walked around "town." Came back at the designated time and got seated pretty much right away.

Great view of the bay and the food/drinks were good. I ordered shrimp salad and their famous specialty drink. Moderate pricing.

The view at sunset on the deck is gorgeous. (Pictures attached.). The calamari was really good. Perfect place to sit out and have some light food and drinks as the sun sets.

This is a good place to sit on a sunny day and enjoy the sun. if you are in any kind of a hurry, forget it. The service was slow, it rained and moving a lot of folks around and trying to get you original order was impossible. if it was crowded, I would get it, but that wasn't the... More

The wait staff Katie, was superb, the calamari delicious, after that is was strictly downhill, the tables are tacky and felt like they needed a really good cleaning, the food I would rate poor at best, the grouper in the grouper sandwich was slimy and undercooked, the steak sandwich had a huge chunk of fat that should have been removed...

The first time I've ever experienced a completely abondoned table. Waiter dropped food and never saw him again. Should've known when table next to us left without getting their food. Restaurant was dirty. Restrooms were dirty. I had to track down manager to pay ticket. No offer to discount meal. Just poor service all around.
