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!

Food was OK but we received some of the WORST customer service from our waitress. Rude, slow on service and overall unprofessional.

Pretty typical PCB tourist place. Food was meh, but you go for the outdoor sunset and the Florida vibe. Made a reservation and they seated us quickly. Tables outside are large and not crowded together. Server was t very educated on the menu and it’s overpriced but the food itself isn’t horrible.

We made a reservation and we were glad about that! We were celebrating our anniversary and denoted that in Open Table. They didn't acknowledge it at all... we were disappointed in that.

Made reservations day before, got there 15 minutes before reservation and checked in and gotten straight to our table. Service was great!! Loved the large fish tank and was able to see ocean from our table. Food was good but slightly overpriced but was on vacation so didn’t mind to much.

Took kids on a Friday night before a long weekend. Service was outstanding. It’s in a very crowded section of Panama City (Pier Park) with lots of tourists. Our meal was about $25 per person.

The food was decent but way overpriced. Our service was ok. We had to wait for silverware which in turn meant our food was cold when we finally ate. They brought the wrong margarita and we didn’t get the correct one until our meal was over.

It took 30 minutes after being seated for a waiter to ask what er wanted. Food didn’t take terribly long, but the apps came out maybe 3 minutes before the food did. My coconut shrimp was burnt, but still tasted alright. Crab legs are very reasonably priced here.

Appetizer of reggae chicken was good as was service - the entree of crab and shrimp stuffed mahi and mahi pier park was ok - the cream sauce on the stuffed mahi was not great and the mahi pier park could have had more topping. The mixed veggies were not done and crunchy, but the twice baked potato was amazing - the best item on the plate.

Need to replace the black female greeter. She is not customer friendly!! However our waiter (Chad) was awesome! The food was ok, it has been better. Need to master blackening, cook with seasoning not add afterwards. We love Pompano Joe's looking forward to a better visit soon.

Neither good nor bad. The hostess staff acted like they would rather be anywhere else. Our waitress was GREAT. The food was mediocre and over priced. I probably wouldn’t eat here again.

Very unimpressed. Maybe because we spent the previous evening eating at The Grand Marlin for a simile price point. Loud, food was merely “okay.” Grouper unimpressive. Wouldn’t take kids back there for sure. Not very family friendly.

Baked oysters were good, not great. Fried oysters and scallops were just a little over cooked (chewy). Fried mahi-mahi was just right.
Boiled peel and eat shrimp were very good!
Wife has had their fish tacos in the past, which were great. Unfortunately they no longer have those on the menu, guess I should have checked.
