“Beachfront dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Pompano Joe's has a great atmosphere and good food, if a bit overpriced. But my main objective was beachfront dining and this was perfect. My family thought the food was okay but the service was great and the view was awesome!

“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

This a is case where beach ambiance trumps food quality. Cleanliness of table and floor is what you would expect. All in all it was a great place to poor down some brewskies and eat some fried food while hanging with my family.

“Open-air dining right on the ocean with a large menu.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Shrimp boil was delicious - as was the key lime pie. Crab cake sandwich was very good. Pineapple coleslaw is very sweet. It's a little pricey.

“Good food on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Great location right on the beach. A good offering of seafood that is fresh and well prepared. A number of items were offered either fried or broiled and there are some reasonable healthy choices of sides.
