    The atmosphere was great. Got to watch the sun set from our table while having dinner. Couldn’t ask for better. The service was fantastic. Teresa did an amazing job with our intimate table of two while handling several other tables, including one really large group, but you would not have known there was anybody else for her to serve but me and my wife. Thank you for a great evening.

    The waiter was amazing. The food was good but not over the top good for the price we paid. My husband had a burger and I had a fish and shrimp meal. We share an appetizer. I had one alcoholic drink which tasted watered down. Our bill was well over a hundred dollars for two people. I would expect this at higher end seafood restaurant.

    We had a great experience last night. We sat on the patio and people watched and good music playing (not too loud). Can see some of the ocean from the patio even though it isn’t “beachfront.” Food was good and our server was excellent.

    Was at Pompano Joe’s in May and it was much better than this visit. Food was average, nothing special. There was three of us and they got one of the orders wrong. When we got the bill it showed the dinner (wrong order) not the sandwich (correct order) and we asked the server about the incorrect item he said it was the same price so didn’t matter. Should have asked to see a menu again as that seems odd. Service was so so. Had to wave server down for drink refills. Probably won’t be on our list next visit.

    The server was great but for a $230 meal, I expected a decent dinner. We did not get one. Almost everyone's food was cold, and overcooked. I would not recommend unless you don't mind wasting a few hundred dollars.

    This is a chain restaurant near other chains. The coconut shrimp was terrible, like it was fried in old oil. The oysters very good. The burger passable a frozen patty. Didn’t try dessert assuming it would disappoint. Waiter was very nice, however, when we sent back the shrimp, he said many customers complain about it. Maybe a heads up if it’s that bad. Would not go back, too many other choices in the area.

    Sorry, this time we were not thrilled. Took our waiter some time to come for a drink order. Husband’s seafood was overcooked. Mine was properly cooked, but baked potato was lukewarm at best. Waiter was scarce. Didn’t come so see if food (delivered by a runner) was OK or not. Restaurant was not terribly crowded nor understaffed.

    Wow. Probably the worst seafood I’ve ever had while at the beach. And my wife’s steak was cold. Tripadviser gave it good reviews, so that’s why we gave it a try. I wish I had read their google review too. It’s not as good.

    Our waiter was amazing let me just say that first. But all of our food came out at once instead of apps then entrees.. “medium” cooked steak was pretty much beef jerky… 4 “mini” crab cakes for $18.99 is crazy they are the size of nickels… scallops were way over done and rubbery.. baked potato wasn’t even cooked all the way through and was cold… food was honestly terrible… thankfully our waiter could tell we weren’t pleased and took off the two apps we ordered but our bill was still $85 skip this place if you actually want some good food.

    The staff was wonderful and parts of the food was good. The fettuccine Alfredo I had was delicious. My wife’s black beans and rice and hush puppies were good. However, her blackened mahi was extremely dry and overdone and the vegetable medley was under cooked. Additionally, the male bathroom was trashed with paper towels that were littered all over the floor as well as in and around the sink.
