Review of Hammerhead's Bar & Grill - CLOSED

Reviewed March 28, 2013

We came to Hammerhead's for lunch. We noticed the parking lot has always been full, so we decided to try it out. The sign in front said to wait to be seated. We waited longer than five minutes before we were even acknowledged. We were then told we could sit anywhere. (Maybe change the sign.) We waited forever for our waitress to come by to take our order. We then watched a handful of people who arrived later than we did get their food and finish before we received ours. We finally get our food and the most important meal (our son's) had to be remade because "someone dropped it." While waiting for our food, our waitress didn't come to check on us at all. The food was mediocre, definitely not worth all the wait. We then had to wait even longer to have our waitress give us the bill so we could leave. Never coming back.

After spending a few hours walking around at Oysterfest where the food and booze was way too expensive we stopped here for an early dinner. The crawfish boil on the patio they were promoting caught our eye and it didn't disappoint. For $11.99 we got 2lbs of crawfish plus corn, sausage, potatoes and onions. We're not crawfish connoisseurs by any means but we thought it was tasty and great value for the money. Service was very good but it wasn't busy when we visited, we were there in between the lunch and dinner rush.

Had a nice dinner here while birding in Fulton. Nothing fancy but very good food for the price. We had the grouper and also the mixed grill and enjoyed both. Always appreciate when seafood places do grilled instead of just fried food.

My husband and I spent the weekend in Rockport for our 25th anniversary. We had some trouble trying to figure out where to eat dinner on a Saturday night. We stayed right across the street from Hammerhead's and we could see the parking lot filling up, so we gave it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. It's casual, but the staff was very friendly and attentive. Fried shrimp were quite good and a generous portion. The lobster bisque was tasty...only minor complaint about it was that there was very little lobster meat in it. Other than that, great place and reasonably priced. Give it a try!

When Hammerheads changed hands last year the food seemed to improve as well. It then seemed to go downhill. The service staff seemed a little too young to handle their jobs professionally and that can hurt. It needs to appeal to a broader age range to be a successful family restaurant.
