We had been here and loved it a few years ago but were hesitant because of prior reviews. We had a great waitress, didn’t have to order off of an app and had a fantastic dinner. Burger, shrimp and tacos (grouper and jerk chicken) were...all awesome! Beautiful view of the sunset and good live music. Unexpectedly glad we gave it a try!More

We went for an early dinner at 5:00 to avoid any crowds. We were one of two families when we entered. The weather was hot and the restaurant/harbor smelled bad. The hostess arranged for a fan to be placed next to our table which was...nice. We ordered drinks, appetizers and meals. They provided bottled water for everyone which we liked and brought out our iced tea but for some reason forgot the kids drinks (Sprite). After asking about it to multiple wait staff, they finally told us they didn’t carry Sierra Mist which we never ordered. The wedge salad they brought out was not cold. The raw oysters on special were bland. They took away the fan they had given us saying they needed it elsewhere. When the brought out the shrimp and crab, they spilled butter over everything and only provided us with plastic utensils to eat it. Every time we would ask for a crab claw cracker, the wait staff would disappear and not come back. There was no way to eat the crab claws without one - especially given the plastic utensils. I was ready to send the meal back because we couldn’t eat it when they finally delivered one. Nothing seemed very fresh. We asked for hand wipes/towelettes which is pretty customary after eating crab and they didn’t have any and had to go to the restaurant next door to get some. This was not a well run or prepared “seafood” restaurant, especially for a meal that ran $150.More

We had an amazing experience at Hammerheads while visiting SanDestin. Our daughter has severe allergies and normally gets sick on vacation from kitchen oversight. Not here. The manager, Rafael, took her food himself and cooked it to ensure a pleasant experience without cross contamination. THANK...YOU for the incredible food and customer service. We will return.More

So bad! Don’t spend your money there. It’s over priced, not good quality and so ungodly noisy. Service was so-so,and food was mediocre.

We had dinner here & Few days later lunch. Both times the service was mediocre. The food came out pretty fast but took forever to get my check for dinner & took awhile to get a few bottles of water at lunch. My catfish at...dinner was not fresh, but the French fries were. They add 15% tip automatically, which was annoying. We normally tip more, but not when they do that.More

To see the menu you have to scan a QR code and then order online! The food was ultra expensive and horrible. My order was $35 for mostly fries in a plastic basket, the fish were nuggets, the crab cakes were dry and mostly breading...and I got about 6 small shrimp. The waiter was a bit rude and would not let us split the check and the tip is automatically added and all he did was bring our food someone else took our payment, he was actuallythe only nice person there. They had a horrible singer playing so loud you couldn't talk. My advice is to pass this place by. Worse meal ever!More

The atmosphere and food was pretty good here but beware. You won’t get a normal waiter experience. When you are seated, they point out a QR code that you must use to order and pay for your food. There is very little way to make...modifications to your order and nothing came out together. 4 friends at our table, who all ordered separately, got all of our food separately. Except our appetizers came out with our meals. No one person approached our table more than once, our drinks were not refilled (because there was not someone designated to do so, I assume), and when you’re done, they have automatically added tip to your bill and say they’d appreciate more though. Every table around us was unhappy with this experience.More

Foods were awful and expensive. Service is nonexistent but they charge you 15% for service up front. My son ordered a Dr Pepper and my daughter ordered a Shirley Temple, they brought my son the Dr Pepper with cherry syrup and brought my daughter a...Sprite…what the heck. Oh and I should also mention that their hostess was very rude too. Needless to say, save your money and go elsewhere.More

Implementing touchless menu clearly requires process adjustments which this place did not do. We ordered one appetizer and main entrée for each person (4 of us). Two main dishes came earlier than appetizer. Oysters came with absolutely no condiments. Tables are small, but nobody bothered...to take our dishes away so we can put main entrees in front of us. It was very disorganized and horrible. However, 15% tip was included into the price. No wonder, no effort is put into service.More

Pretty busy but the ordering/paying on your phone moved through pretty quickly. We had an amazing sunset while enjoying our meal.

We went for happy hour. 1/2 off for appetizers and various wines - which was good deal and good food. Only problem was you ordered all items via phone - that’s ok but when we paid asked for tip - which we did and when...statement came through a 15% service charge had been added. There were only 4 of us so it wasn’t added on for large party and nowhere does it say tip already applied. So basically we paid extra 30% for appetizers and drinks!😦😦 so I’d go back but NOT Tip!!More

Fantastic fried pickles and margaritas. Fish sandwich and tacos were delicious. Nice view of harbor. Better lunch than more expensive places on 30A

The food was good/average, and the servers were nice, but you have to do everything on your phone from ordering to payment. There is no opportunity to customize your order. There was a strong smell of bad sour cream coming out of the kitchen trash...every time the wind shifted.More

Came in for “happy hour” because of the big billboard advertising $0.85 oysters. Not the case! It said it everywhere including the menu but when the bill came out we were charged $19 per dozen ($1.58 each)!! Talked to the manager and she said they...can’t honor the pricing because their supplier prices went up. I get that but STOP ADVERTISING it then, huge bait and switch. Never again!More

I don't believe so. It's very much an outdoor restaurant
