Wonderful menu selection, atmosphere, and service. Highly recommend! Duck tacos, elk or venison burgers, fish & delicious crab cakes are my favorites, but lots to choose from. Make sure your party arrives together to be seated quickly.

Hammerheads is not easy to find. It is located in Germantown neighborhood, with one way streets and limited parking. However, even with that minor inconvenience, Hammerheads is worth your time. I am a sucker for specials, so the night we went they had two croissants...More
