Pompano Joe's - Panama City Beach
Just ok. Nothing special!
We had a reservation but still had to wait about 10-15 mins on our table. But our server, Brandon, was outstanding! He was always checking to make sure we didn’t need anything and he had a great personality that we could cut up with and he really did a great job! The food was hot and delicious. Would definitely recommend this to friends and family!
Great ambiance and food! Highly recommend to anyone visiting the area.
Great food and service ! Outdoor seating was really nice. Following COVID regulations very well. Highly recommend
Food was dynamite! Service a bit slow but to be expected with COVID restrictions. Will certainly eat here again.
The steamed crab legs were amazing! And Marshall was awesome! Definitely coming back again
It was ok. Seated in the back by the server’s door. Our server was not very attentive...he was pretty busy with other customers although it didn’t seem terribly crowded. I’m not sure we will be back. Meh.
We were extremely disappointed by the quality of our meal. I had a shrimp salad which was very bad. I didn’t even know a salad could be bad but it was. The shrimp was burnt and the dressing weren’t good. My husband had the fried shrimp which weren’t bad. Overall we were not please with the value we received. The Miramar location seems to be better.
We were seated on time for our 6PM reservation. The wait staff was attentive. My husband and I both had the Pompano Joe's favorite fried seafood platter. The food was good and the only reason I didn't give more stars is the Mahi Mahi and the shrimp were over cooked. The fish was dry and the shrimp was tough. There were some smaller less commercial establishments that had better seafood.
Great food and service. Chilled shrimp was very cold. The rest of the food was served hot. Service great too.
Quality of food was extremely low and very over priced!
Scallops were delicious as was blackened grouper. Sitting outside was noisy due to traffic but otherwise thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.
One of our favorite restaurants in the Gulf... Great food and specialty drinks. Kids love the cups!!
Good for families
Waited an hour for food to arrive after ordering
Fish was very good, coleslaw good
Baked potato come or cold, would not even melt butter or allow sour cream to be spread.
Will probably not return.
Outstanding food and service! Our server, Marshall, was very attentive and gave great suggestions and five star service. Beautiful patio and well spaced tables. Highly recommend!
Best grilled crab legs!
This was probably our worst food experience in a very long time. My wife had snow crab that smelled very funky which we ended throwing out and my food, grouper Marsala basically had no taste. To say the least I had a severe stomach the rest of the night. Not ever going to return.
Terrible service. Terrible food. Ordered appetizers and main course food and server didnt even put the order in at all untill i asked where my appetizers were. Wont be back
Lovely dinner outside. We shared dozen oysters for an appetizer then I had broiled scallops which were awesome and my wife had shrimp fettuccine which she did not like at all. She said the sauce was horrible. Unfortunately she didn’t complain to me or the waiter to get something else. But she would go back and choose better next time.
Neither the food or the service were great. The drinks were watered down. We sat on the patio and the traffic was so loud we couldn't hear one another.
Overcooked shrimp for $26 is ridiculous. Putting saucy wet sides next to fried food just makes for a bad plate of smushy food.
Our reservation was at 3:45 but we came earlier and got seated right away. Food was excellent! Jerk chicken dinner and fried flounder were absolutely amazing. Our server Rose was amazing! She was so sweet, kind, and incredibly funny! She definitely made our experience 10x better and I highly recommend Rose and pompano joes!
Hamburger was ordered medium and was delivered burnt. Sauces to dip chicken, shrimp were $2-4 each for a 4 ounce cup that wasn’t full. Caribbean jerk chicken was bland, thus the need for a spicy sauce. Food was pricy for the amount and quality of food.
We ate at this restaurant two times on our recent visit to PCB. The best part of the experience was that we had two great servers. They were both attentive and caring of our needs as customers. The food was good, but the prices were insane. I was warned this restaurant is a "tourist trap" due to the location in Pier Park. You definitely pay for the convenience of location. The biggest issue I had, other than price, was the not very friendly hostess stand staff. On both of our visits, we made reservations. However, we were treated with a bit of hostility for making reservations, as this staff seems to favor having walk ins. Also, as noted in other reviews, the bathroom (I only witnessed the Women's), is dirty and not well kept. You would think staff would check this more often, as it is a reflection on the restaurant's cleanliness. Sadly, the restaurant seemed a bit unclean when we visited (food, utensils that had fallen on the floor and not picked up). Other than that, this was a good dining choice for us as the food was tasty, and the location was ideal.
Had a reservation for 4:30 did not get a message for seating until 4:55. We ate at the bar. Food was very good, the bartender was excellent!
We had an awesome time the other night! Shelly was our server and she was amazing! Incredibly attentive and very sweet! My wife and I had the crab stuffed Mahi and garlic crushed grouper and both were incredible! I highly recommend!!
Food is very bland no seasoning at all. The best thing we had were the crab legs which I realize are somewhat hard to mess up. Service was also slow but the server was nice and apologized to us.
I believe we had David B for our server and he was nice and pleasant. The food was exceptional compared to other places we’ve had in PCB this week. We decided to try something new to our tastebuds and we were not disappointed. I had the Caribbean jerk chicken and it was refreshing, such good flavor, and timely. We will be back in a couple of months
Not impressed at all! Food was basic like every other chain restaurant.
Wonderful place! Food was delicious! We received great service from our waiter David!
Food was delicious. We had reservations but still had to wait about 15 minutes. That wasn’t bad considering the quoted wait was an hour and a half at that time. We were rushed a bit. Salad, apps, and entree all came out together after I specifically asked it not be. Veggies were cold but everything else was delicious.
Arrived a few minutes prior to reservation time and was seated immediately. Food and service was excellent.
Food is mediocre at best. Basically it's all about the atmosphere.
Reserved a table a head of time and only had a short wait to be seated.
We eat here every time we come to Panama City and have never been disappointed!
Nice patio experience. Covid compliant and careful. Great food!
Loved Pompano Joe’s the service was great and the food was delicious! I also love the convenience of a reservation.
Ask for server Marshall. He was great!!!
Don't bother making a reservation through here. We made a reservation for 4pm an hour before the reservation time. We got there and said we were on top of the list and it would be about a 25 to 30 minute wait. We asked again at 4:30 and they said it would be a little longer. We finally got seated after 5pm. They kept saying it was because of shift change. The service was not great, just barely acceptable. They messed up on our order and didn't even bring a side we had ordered for our daughter. I do not see how this restaurant is top rated. I will not be returning and I do not recommend this overpriced restaurant.
