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!

    Poor service and food was mediocre. Our server seemed annoyed once we placed our orders. She did not return to check on our table once the food was served and we had to ask another server for help getting our bill to pay.

    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.

    This is a tourist trap, with mediocre food. Halibut was the quality of a Burger King fillet. Same goes for the fried grouper.

    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.

    First time here, unfortunately probably wouldn’t come back. Our waiter was super nice, nothing against him. We got the baked oysters to start, they came out cold. Flavor was good though. I ordered the crab and shrimp stuffed mahi, I wanted to sub out my sides for a salad but you can’t do that here which is a bummer since I couldn’t eat any of the other options. My food came out barely warm. Had to have it microwaved. Flavor again was pretty good. Moms meal seemed fine, she said wasn’t impressive but definitely not bad by any means. I saw a few tables around us sending food back. Prices in the restaurant are higher than what open table shows by $3-7 each. Not worth the price but it’s an okay meal.

    The food is ALMOST excellently seasoned. If you like spicy food..BEWARE, everything was "lightly" seasoned. Salads are 88% lettuce, other ingredients are of small quantity. Our waitress was of high quality. She was an older lady & was training a new hire. We will definitely return.

    We went for my wife's birthday. She wanted fried crab claws. Unfortunately they were out. Obviously disappointed, the manager, who seated us, told her to pick out an appetizer and it would be on him. Needless to say, we were made to feel special from the start and it carried through with our waiter. He was wonderful and he also presented my wife with a piece of key lime pie and sang happy birthday to her. Our meal was great and we were pleasantly surprised with such a personal touch.

    There was miscommunication between the hostess and I. Could tell they were annoyed. Made upset noises and faces. Wasn’t happy about that. I understand they were busy but to make it obvious they were annoyed with it wasn’t very nice. After that everything was great. Server was AMAZING. She was polite and on top of it.
