Went there for dinner and to listen to the music. The fish tacos excellent. Our waiter Troy so pleasant and polite, will go back and look for him. The musician's took more brakes then entertaining us, very disappointing.

One of the myriad restaurants in PCB with cute nautical nicknames, built for big crowds and parties. Food is not the priority in these places. With that being said our dinner was ok, service was spotty and the beer I ordered was a bit flat. However, we did eat there a couple of days before they were closing for the... More

Had to come here for the alligator bites, as no one seemed to have them during the off season. Great food and service, ask for Janell!

I have never dined at Hammerhead Fred's before and this was the first and probably the last. The service was great. I ordered the Oyster Basket and it was terrible. The oysters were small and not tasty at all.

This place is great! The food is excellent and happy hour was great. Heck, we enjoyed the food snd drink so much we returned the next day. The outdoor seating areas is phenomenal, mainly bc there is so much of it. I think we counted 4 outdoor bars to accommodate high season. We only ventured in to use the restrooms... More

Husband had grilled shrimp excellent. Gumbo subpar too much celery & green peppers to meat flavor subpar. I had stuffed mahi wasn't stuffed on top but mahi & sauce great needed more stuffing since it was supposed to have other seafood in it.

This was once our favorite. They were out of oysters. We ordered appetizers. I ordered hot boneless wings. They were mild. My wife ordered crab cakes. They were ok. I also ordered fried pickles (bottle caps). Very good. We also ordered onion rings (spare tires). Excellent! Not our favorite any more.

Food was okay, wait staff was couretous, out of certain types of beer. They were closing for the season and didn't keep a lot on the shelves.
