We are locals and have never visited Pompano Joes before. Wanting to try something new we stumbled upon this place while visiting Pier Park. Rustic interior, fun music, and a very friendly staff. Our server David promptly greeted us and was very knowledgeable. We asked...More

We love Pampano Joe's in Destin, so we were very disappointed in this place. We went for lunch and it was empty (should have been a clue) They service was very slow especially considering there were few customers.

My favorite restaurant at Pier Park hands down (maybe there's a better one, but from Margaritaville, The Back Porch etc. it's the best). I highly recommend the king grilled crab legs and the hushpuppies. The service has been iffy... sometimes great other times average, but...More

I've lived in the area for several years but don't usually do the "touristy" restaurants because I don't like the wait or the crowds. Some friends came into town and really wanted to go so we did and I was pleasantly surprised. It was fairly...More

Overhyped and underperforming. Couldn't wait to have true Gulf Shrimp but the minuscule size and awful flavor was disappointing. The crab cakes tasted like mayonnaise with a drop of crab. The best part was the stunning view.

We decided to try this restaurant out after driving by Pier Park. We were surprised at the large number of chain restaurants in this area. We were able to get a shrimp dinner, grouper sandwich, and a small dish of pasta for our son. The...More

You probably need to call the restaurant to be sure, but most Florida restaurants allow leashed dogs in their outside seating

Pompano Joe's opened its doors in 1995 and quickly became known for their unique Caribbean style 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.
