Love the view

We were sat in the upper level and the view was great. Service was very good considering there were 12 of us. The food was very good. The prices were a little high but for Destin I guess it was fine. We had a great time and will probably eat there again if the opportunity arises.

My husband and I had dinner last night. Food was good, drinks were Ok, but our server was awesome. She even is not american. Her name is Katya. We are impressed! She recommended the seafood bucket, which is the most expensive thing in the menu, but it was very delicious. She is very friendly, smily and explained us everything. Thank... More

I went with a group of girls for dinner and it was a great experience! The staff was nice and on top of their game! The manager came by to check on us numerous times which made the experience even better. We felt very taken care of during this experience. The food was also great! There were plenty of options...

If you like paying a lot and waiting 30 minutes for coconut shrimp that tastes like the Seapak stuff you find in your grocer's freezer section this is the place for you. The so-called "Dynamite Shrimp" was frozen, breaded shrimp that was fried then drizzled with a little hot sauce. It was not spicy. The Loaded Chicken Nachos did not... More

Please do not mistake this place for having 'fresh' seafood since it's on the water, pretty sure it was hands down the worst I've ever tasted. Our server Josuha was very quick and on point, especially with having little ones. He suggested the grouper ($27 plate) and it was extremely dry. My husband who doesn't eat seafood opted for the...

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 a Groupon, otherwise it's... 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!
