Been coming to Pompano Joe's for 15 years. The food is always good, reasonably priced sandwiches, award winning gumbo, spectacular salads. But that's not why we come. The sunset is the best we've ever seen. I have been known to say, "Everyone should see this sunset at least once!" Not even sure what makes it so great....almost all tables are... More

This is a great restaurant and bar. Best gumbo ever ( they've won awards). Didn't have one bad thing to eat and we were there a lot! All staff was very friendly and customers as well. Plus the views were awesome!!! Definitely going back when we return to the area

Me and my husband ate lunch here and we were pleased with the egg rolls (be sure to request for extra crispy) and fried seafood platter. The fish sticks on the platter were good but you never know what kind of taste you're going to get because they are made with a mixture of several fish. Atmosphere was great and... More

I've been to Pomp's more times to count, and never had a bad experience. I've seen the place packed to the brim with people in single-file lines to get in and out, and us being the only people in there. They have live music, and although it is your typical Jimmy Buffet or other cover music, it's still an enjoyable... More

The dining areas overlook the beaches. The Garlic Crusted Grouper was very tasty and plentiful. My wife, a shrimp, connoisseur, gave the Coconut Shrimp two thumbs up. We had the house made Key Lime pie and it was the right blend of tangy and sweet. A little pricey but the portions were plentiful. Great atmosphere, food and service. Make the... More

Food is great the atmosphere is always great here and the outside seating area that over looks the gulf is breathe taking during the summer. I have been going here for over 15 years and its remained the same and I like that. I highly recommend the loaded nachos and the grilled mahi sandwhich.

Overlooks the great sandy beaches of Destin. Both the outside and inside tables have great views. The food is just average but the views and ocean air make up for it. We were there for lunch and the shrimp salad and fish tacos were both okay. It wasn’t crowded so there was plenty of parking. We have been by there... More
