We went rather early on a Thursday night and were seated right away. Our sever was busy with some other tables, and another server stopped to tell us our server would be with us shortly and then took our drink order. Our server, Jessica, was very witty and added to an enjoyable evening. The food was good and the service... More

Wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico after a long trip from Baltimore, Md to Destin Fla. Had a great lunch which included fish tacos, shrimp, and a delicious yellow tuna salad with Pita bread. Lovely lunch with a fantastic view of the white sand and the turquoise colored Gulf.

A billboard on US 98 in Destin, brought us to Pompano Joe's. Little did we know that this would turn out to be one of the day's highlights. Started in 1995, this Caribbean flair seafood restaurant, situated right on the beach, is a Travel Channel selection for one of the best beach restaurants in the world. The decor is fun----sea...

We always drive by it and never have gone in. On this visit we went to eat here after a nice walk on the beach. The food was wonderful and a lot of food. Atmosphere feels a little crowded and you can hear everyone's conversation.

We liked how the majority of the seating was along the windows or outside so most people have a wonderful view of the beach, ocean, and sunset (depending on time of day). We only had to wait 10 minutes but we went in October. The portions were much larger than we expected so we had enough for lunch the next... More

Great location, right on the beach. We only had to wait about 10 minutes before we were seated. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Grouper sandwich and Lobster/Grouper combo meal were delicious! Ken was one of the best waiters we have ever had. He did 10 magic tricks for us (the kids loved it!). Even taught them how to do a trick.... More
