About the restaurant
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!

The ambience was just beautiful with views of the ocean and the most comfortable seating. The food choices were plentiful for everyone and absolutely delicious especially the nachos! But most of all the server was top notch, he used to work on a cruise ship so he knows how to entertain! We loved his personality, his humor, and his pride in making sure we had everything we needed! Please stop by this hidden gem you’ll be so glad you did!!!!!

About the restaurant
Time counts at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse. Since our humble beginnings back in 1978, we've continued to refine our brewhouse experience to make BJ's a place where you can make the most of any meal. We want BJ's to be a place where the moment you leave is the moment you plan on coming back. We pride ourselves in our craft and attention to detail. Our guests come here for our award-winning handcrafted beer. They come here for the Southern California twist we've put on the Chicago-style deep dish pizza. And they come here for our Pizookies®, our world-renowned dessert. But above all we know people come here to make their good times better. So in many ways we haven't just crafted a brand, but a mindset. And our guests are the reason for this. And it's because of them we're continually striving to make sure every moment they choose to spend with us counts. Welcome to BJ's, a restaurant with a Brewhouse soul.

Burger was a little charred in the outside, but well done as ordered (immunosuppressed) and the fries are always tasty. Good service is the standard.

Kamille was a wonderful waitress! So personable and funny and kind. It was extremely busy, as it was the 4th of July, so obviously the kitchen service was slow. However, we always had drinks. Plus our table outside was directly in front of the fireworks! Dinner arrived right after the show - perfect timing. Highly recommend and request Kamille's section!

The food was great. The portions were huge so my wife and I split an entree. The drinks were good as well.
