Great place for Happy Hour

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... read 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.

TIP: the fish tacos were very good at a reasonable price for a touristy location. Service was good and the food arrived promptly, but we were there at a non-peak time. Its a convenient place to go if you are staying at the Sandestin Resort.

The title pretty much says it all. The best part about the restaurant was the sunset viewed in a completely different part of Baytowne Wharf. 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.

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.
