Seafood
Pompano Joe's takes tremendous pride in serving Gulf seafood to its guests. If it lives in the Gulf, you will most likely find it on our menu. Our seafood is delivered daily and it is handled with great care from the minute it arrives at our door to the time it arrives at your table. Our standards are high and it shows in the presentation and flavor of every seafood dish we serve. We're a neighborhood beach place where you can "savor the flavor" of the Islands!

    For a beach restaurant they need to lower the AC. At best it was 74-75 in there. That might be fine for your living room but after being out in the hot Fl sun it should be a little cooler. Our server was good but the kitchen staff messed up the order. It was ok but not worth the price.

    We’ve eaten at Pompano Joe’s in Destin and enjoyed it a lot. So, our experience in Panama City Beach was very disappointing. Food was mediocre, service was ok but not many smiling faces there, price was exorbitant for what we got. I was looking forward to great Mahi-mahi and seafood and left truly unsatisfied. Sorry but we will not be back.

    Not a great experience at all. We were immediately asked to order the moment we sat down and the whole time our server rushed us to order, legit came back to ask us our order 3 times in 10 minutes. Our server seemed to just want us finished for our tip, brought the check before the food even came out. The food was definitely overpriced for the quality. It’s definitely a tourist trap. Do not recommend.

    We walked right in at our reservation time. Seated right away. Server answered all of our questions. Our server was very attentive throughout our dining experience. The food was very good. I had the jerk chicken sandwich my three family members had seafood and an Oaster appetizer.

    Restaurant was extremely dirty. When we were seated we had to ask server to sweep under table to clean up French fries and other food debris. Two seats had to be wiped because of dried ketchup. Restrooms, both women and mens were beyond disgusting.

    Our experience started out poorly. Reservation @ 4:30. Seated immediately, very good. Only 3 other tables were occupied, multiple servers. Waited 15 minutes with multiple servers walking by, but no service. Went to the hostess and finally someone came over. Mixup in serving areas was the explanation. Many apologies from manager and server and they made it right on our bill. Service was excellent once the issues were resolved Food was good but overpriced as it usually is in these type of chains.

    Wouldn’t even give this place 1 star. Dirty silverware. Not enough fans outside to keep the sitting area cool enough. We ordered the gulf shrimp and it was hard. Maybe from being over cooked. The hush puppies were over cooked as well.

    We were promptly seated. It took 45 minutes for our food to arrive. Both entrees were lukewarm and sides were cool instead of hot. We were very disappointed because we’ve been to the Destin location several times and were always pleased.

    Took my daughter to Panama for her birthday, before we left I seen this place advertised in a YouTube video and made us reservations. We got there sat outside, it was bike week so yeah noisy but ok.. me my husband and my brother ordered the wings and two of my daughter got burgers and fries and the other daughter got chicken tenders and fries. The food was terrible. The wings were the little wingetts it was like 7 on the plate and it came with shredded lettuce and two carrots for $17 dollars. The chicken tenders were cooked in burnt grease they taste terrible. The online menu is wrong it needs to be updated. I think they known for seafood, I didn’t get to get any this trip but if so they need to stick with just seafood.

    Could not understand young man who meet us outside the door and lead us to our table. Our server seemed to be clueless about menu, and was extremely slow. My nacho chips were soft and thin and made using them to eat the sea food impossible. Expense for what we received as our meal.

    The prices are way too high. I don’t mind a high price if the food is worth it, but when the food is bad, that high price really stings. Seafood sampler had rubbery shrimp and scallops cooked too long. My nieces crab cake sandwich had a crab cake the size of a small sausage patty. They need a new cook.

    We ate outside, which was incredibly noisy from trucks and cars with no mufflers driving by and reviving engines. Scallops were amazing, but shrimp sandwich not great. Would have preferred indoor seating, but even though I saw tables open, they wanted us outside.
