Food was outstanding and very fresh and prices reflected that. $40+ per entree for fresh seafood. Our server was excellent and very knowledgeable about the wine list. Overall great experience.

We had an exceptional experience and would highly recommend. Fresh fish offerings and knowledgeable staff/owner. This may not be a place for little ones but more of an adult experience.

Wonderful little place off the beaten path. Doesn't look like much from the outside but charming inside. Service was amazing with great attention to details and great for making suggestions. I had the blackened snapper and my wife had the tuna. Well prepared and seasoned to perfection. Not cheap but I don't mind paying for freshness and quality. Well done.

Every time we dine at Pompano Grill the dining experience is excellent! The food, service and ambiance are all top notch. Appetizers of Fried Green Tomatoes and Coconut Shrimp never disappoint. The Fresh Catch included Halibut, which is one of our favorites and the table all ordered Halibut served blackened, pan seared, topped with Crawfish Étouffée Cream Sauce- all were excellent! The sautéed vegetables and the forbidden black rice provide perfect sides. The chocolate peanut butter cheesecake is the best ending of a perfect meal. We really love this restaurant- Jackie and Erika are wonderful hosts.

Wow! The food is amazing. For an appetizer we ordered the oysters on special and they were really good. I don’t typically care for fried oysters as it takes away from the oyster because I can eat them raw or steamed but the sauce with this and the garnish were both amazing. We ordered bread as it says on the menu to ask if you would like the complementary bread and it was definitely something I’m glad we got. I’m unsure of what is in the butter that comes with the bread but it was divine. The house salads were unexpectedly great. You’d think a house salad would
just be meh, but no, get the salad people. I ordered the snapper with vegetables and jalapeño cheese grits. Ate every bit of that dinner. My boyfriend got the scallops and his side was Mac n cheese which I tried and they were as equally good as my grits. We both went in strong knowing we were going to get dessert but alas we ate too much. We’ll be back Pompano. Please keep the creme brûlée on the menu and we’ll see you soon.

I booked a table for my wife and I on Friday night at 6:15. We arrived on time, we’re greeted by the friendly hostess, seated promptly, and our water glasses were filled. When our waitress came to the table she appeared to be friendly and enthusiastic. She introduced herself, took our wine order, and promptly returned with our order.

Our waitress’ attentiveness gradually subsided as the night wore on. I ordered pan seared Covina with crab bernaise, the food runner delivered our dinner plates and left. Our waitress didn’t follow up with us for more than ten minutes. My dinner was good but it wasn’t what I ordered and I wanted to show the waitress the order was wrong. My wine went empty and was never refilled. The bernaise sauce was eventually delivered to our table but I was no longer interested. My wife’s scallops were absolutely delicious, by the way.

I listened to another waitress greet other tables and noticed our waitress didn’t go over the pasta special for the night. She made us feel like we were a table she didn’t care to serve and didn’t have time for us.

Pompano Grill is good. The food was great, the wine list was decent, the other tables appeared to get great service. I would definitely recommend this place, I should’ve said something to management before I left.

When on vacation it’s hard to trust reviews. This place was small and intimate but the food was outstanding. We love farm to table, fresh, whole food and they knocked it out of park. Family owned and it shows how much they care. Highly recommend if you like 5 star food!

Dining at The Pompano Grill was great! The food was delicious, the service was thoughtful and good, and the atmosphere was very pleasant. It did get noisy as it filled up but that beats the option of an empty house. It is pricey and we felt that we received what we paid for. It could easily become a "Special Occasion" place!!!

I hadn't been to Pompano Grill in years and was very pleasantly surprised. Decor updated, relaxed but very nice. The food was excellent! I had the scallops for dinner and it may have been the best I've ever had! The escargot appetizer was delicious, too.

Four of us, all thought entrees were good, perhaps a little overpriced. Not enough sauce on the Grouper almandine. The shrimp and grits were excellent. The escargot appetizer also was excellent. Salads were very good. Could use a few more moderately priced wines.

Although they are a bit pricey the food is excellent a well as the selection of wines. There was only one other table while we were dining and the service to our table was ok. We were never asked how our meal was until the check came and we had to ask for wine refills.

My husband and I loved our dinners. The scallops were excellent and the pan seared fresh catch with bernaise sauce was delicious. Our guests were less thrilled about their entrees. The toppings they selected for their fresh catch were not as tasty as my bernaise sauce. We will definitely go back anytime we are in the area and want a very fine dinner.

Pompano Grill was just the kind of small family owned restaurants that we love! The staff makes you feel welcome from the moment you walk in, greeting you with great smiles. Our waitress couldn’t have been more attentive, informative, and friendly! I ordered the escargot appetizer followed by the N.Y. Strip. My wife had the carpaccio appetizer and then the tuna special. All were simply wonderful! Serving sizes were just right.

My wife and I came from out of town to celebrate our anniversary of engagement in Cocoa Beach. Pompano Grill was a nice authentic restaurant, small but cozy and delightful. The service was outstanding, Erika was great and made sure to acknowledge our special occasion. The food was unique, original, and delicious. I had the scallops and they were cooked perfectly and plated beautifully. The key lime pie was homemade and just what I was looking for in our trip down to Florida.

My husband had work in this area for over a year when he discovered this gem. Over the past few years we plan our drive from South Carolina to the Keys so that we can stay a night in cocoa beach just so that we can stop and have dinner at this restaurant. It truly is our favorite. We have been pleasantly surprised that over the past 7 years the quality and taste of the food is just like it always has been, perfect! To keep the same recipes and consistency is impressive. Bravo guys!
