Pompano Joe's - Panama City Beach
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!
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.
Nothing special. Food was average.
First off made a reservation with opentable with TripAdvisor. Showed up 5 minutes early for my reservation,checked in, then waited for 50 minutes! Apparently the hostess forgot about me and was seating walk-ins ahead of me. Eventually they realized they screwed up and gave me a free appetizer card for my trouble. (Yayyy jk) after all that the food was mediocre, waiter was friendly, bathroom was nasty. Wouldnt recommend.
Don’t bother with this place. We went on a Monday and even with a reservation, we still waited 20 minutes for a table and after ordering, the food took 40 minutes to come out and was bland at best. Worst part was the ridiculously loud cars driving by the stoplight revving their engines and blowing their horns crazy loud. We sat outside and the noise ruined the whole experience. I give it 2 stars only because people without a reservation waited 90 minutes for a table, otherwise this would be a 1 star review. If you need a better alternative, drive to The Grand Marlin who also takes Open Table and was a way better experience for less money.
I can’t remember our waiters name but she was awesome! She was slammed with tables and still made a effort to make sure we have everything we needed and continuously got us refills on a very timely manner. We were all super impressed with how great our service was when our waiter was super busy! We will be back!
Food tasteless and bland. Fried grouper sandwich had the consistency of mushrooms
Food was great and our waitress was absolutely wonderful
Nothing good or bad.
Definitely make a reservation. You’ll wait anyhow. Service was awful. You’d think they’d hustle a bit especially during a time where they’re not taking in a lot of people.
What a great place to eat. Food and our waitress Christina H was amazing!!
We had a great upstairs table overlooking the street and beach. Atmosphere was great. Our waitress did a terrible job though. We kept running out of drinks while waiting for our food. Finally our food was brought to the table by another server and she left. We waited on our waitress to come back so we could ask for silverware, ketchup, tarter sauce, and cocktail sauce. My wife finally got up and went and got our son some ketchup off of a neighboring table so he could eat his fries. When she finally arrived she had to leave to go get the requested silverware and condiments. When she finally returned our food was cold from the winds off of the beach. After we ate she brought the bill and it was $159 before tip. I had already spent $30 at the bar for 2 alcoholic beverages and two soft drinks while we waited to be seated. I don’t mind spending that kind of money for quality service and good food but we received neither of the two. I really hate being negative but I’m a little disappointed and I hope management can correct these issues for future customers.
First family trip to the beach
Good meal and nice atmosphere. I’ll be back!
Great food , Great service. Atmosphere is more beachy as opposed to the original.
Good location. Make sure you plan ahead. Crowds for dinner can cause long wait times with the Covid-19 issue. All in all worth the visit.
Great pcb option! Enjoyed outside dining with social distancing & fans to keep us cool. Little wait time with reservation and excellent food & service!
Hostess was rude, immature and needs to lose her attitude. We had reservations. Folks are on vacation and planning ahead to dine. Mason was our waiter and was OVER THE TOP excellent! Food was great and experience with Mason was perfect.
Great experience! Enjoyed the food and our server was fantastic and very personable!
Go here everytime we vacation. Yummy seafood selections. Our server Marshall was awesome!
Beach dining with good seafood:)
Food was great had issue with being skipped and overlooked after they text us the table was ready. Set people that were called in front of us. Our initial table was outside chairs lean back it was impossible to use them for dinning. Server finally found us another table. Server saved the day manger didn’t care or even apologized for overlooking us.
Good food and it’s one of the few places you can make a reservation in PCB.
The food was great and our server was amazing. However, the hostess was very rude and had the worst attitude I’ve ever encountered. We won’t be back because of the service we got from the hostess. She clearly has an issue dealing with people and problems.
We had a 30/45 min wait (walk-in). The service and food (grilled shrimp, mayo-magi and crab legs) were great! Would definitely go back!
Lauryn was our server and was amazing! We got to sit upstairs
This restaurant is in a party area of Panama City Beach- right on the strip where cars are constantly passing by with loud music blaring and some of them yelling out of the windows at pedestrians. There’s a street light right next to the patio area where we were seated that caused cars to stop frequently. There were also gnats flying around us. We asked if we could switch to indoor seating right away and were told that we’d have to be put on the waitlist again and that it would be about 45 minutes. We decided to stay put. There were large fans blowing on us and our food, so we requested that the server turn the nearest one off, which she did. The patio floor was dirty. The food was good. High prices but we realized we were at the beach, so to be expected. The serving was very generous. In the future, I’ll try to find a seafood restaurant with a better atmosphere. I really wouldn’t recommend to a friend.
Food was amazing! Everything i tasted was good! Our waiter was energetic, educated and polite! Best service I've had in a long time!
Service was very slow took almost 20 minutes to get drinks. Appetizer came out after main dishes.
Food tasted great! Sitting outside is a must to enjoy the pier & sunset. Our server Keith couldn’t have been better!! Thanks!!
We had a great experience last night. Tamara was our waitress and she was so personable and had a great personality. Will be back for sure!
This was a very neat and nice experience was good food that's not too expensive!
Made a reservation, waited over 30 mins after our reservation time. We were told we were next, but yet table after table went in front of us. The hostesses were “accidentally” skipping the reservations.
Our entrees’ beat our appetizers to the table, then the appetizers weren’t what we order, they told us the appetizers were going to free, which they were after several different receipts were brought out charging us for the appetizers.
I've lived here for about 15 years and it's still my favorite seafood restaurant to eat at!
