Pompano Joe's opened its doors in 1995 and quickly became known for their unique Caribbean style of seafood. Since then, it has become a destination restaurant for tourists and a favorite among the locals. The Caribbean flair shines through from our famous Reggae Rolls and Garlic Crusted Grouper to the brightly colored window frames that line the walls of our open-air restaurant. In 2013, we opened the second Pompano Joe's location at Pier Park in Panama City Beach, FL. When visiting Destin, South Walton or Panama City Beach, we hope you stop in and enjoy the great food, refreshing drinks and the best view on the Gulf Coast.

A friend recommended the voodoo burger at Pompano Joe's and it did not disappoint. Granted, it's a bit messy due to the "voodoo sauce" but it's a darn good burger. The fries were nice and crispy, interesting cole slaw with pineapple which was quite tasty....More

We have visited Destin for about 15 years. We have tried numerous seafood restaurants. Pompano Joes is so great and surpasses others in our opinion. The food is always hot, fresh and tasty. My husband says the seafood gumbo is the best he has eaten....More

This is a great place for lunch or dinner. They offer a daily happy hour from 3-5. Best Gumbo around. Beautiful views. Fresh oysters on the half shell. Sara at the bar is awesome. Good for families, couples, or solo. Kid friendly.
The food is OK, you can get grouper, snapper or a “captain’s platter”, broiled, grilled or fried. Don’t go here for cocktails, just have a beer. What is great is the location, right on the beach, I like a table inside but by the windows,...More
Honestly, the only thing this place has going for it is the view as it sits right on the beach. It is an amazing view!!! The drinks are a decent price. The food & service were lackluster. Bland fish sandwich & waiter never smiled.
