Always a favorite

The day we ate outside it was very windy so that made dinning difficult. The food and service was excellent. My husband had ordered muscles and as an appetizer and 1/3 of them didn't open they took five dollars off the bill.

From the moment we walked in the door to the time we left the staff was most gracious. My husband and I had dinner here on 6/6/15. i ordered the Helluva shrimp dish. My meal had just enough of a spicy kick and was served over rice, the portion was generous, enough for a take home. My husband ordered the... More

Hammer head grill is our favorite Narragansett spot. We never get tired of the view, All staff and locals are always friendly and the food does not disappoint. A previous reviewer recommended Iggy's or Champlin's, Hammerhead is not a "fried everything" tourist spot. Burgers are great, with that crispy exterior and still rare inside. I also enjoy the sesame grilled... More

TLDR: Misconceived, poorly-executed, over-priced food. Unfriendly, awkward & lazy staff. Go to Iggy's or drive a mile to Champlin's instead. The beautiful views of the Atlantic ocean are not nearly redeeming enough to make it worth going here. I'm pretty sure the 50-60 year old male bar scene downstairs all grappling for attention from the young (female) bartender is the... More

Stop in only because Aunt Carries was closed for the season. View is great but that's about it. Server was nice but not to knowledgeable about the menu. Soda was flat and watered-down, clamp chowder was lacking clams, potatoes, celery and taste. My fiance took one bite of her crab cakes and pushed it aside. We took our 2.5 hr... More

The coast guard restaurant was not open for lunch so friends of ours told us about this place. We went past it at first because their signage is a bit confusing. This restaurant is set back from Ocean Rd. another sign Bon Vou stands out from the road. They need to six their sign that says Hammerhead Grill. We were... More

On weekends we love going to Hammerhead Grill. It is upstairs at the Bon Vue and is right on the water. Lots of great Mexican themed breakfast items. Outside tables have umbrellas for those diners who want both shade and sun.

Stopped in for early dinner with family. Seafood bisque was really tasty. Our waitstaff was very helpful with the specials. Chicken Capone was out of this world and lobster sliders very good!

The food was great and cooked exactly to my desire. Staff took care of us and our party of 5. Very busy so don't be surprised if you have to wait, but the wait is worth it.
