This is a wonderful restaurant with fabulous food! It's located in a small shopping center and they are not Open Saturday and Sunday, so make sure you go during the week. They are always busy and you will love the wide range of seafood and specials. I usually get the fried shrimp appetizer or chicken wings and my husband usually... More

Great Sandwiches, Caribbean Seafood Platters, Beer and lots more. These owners take a lot of pride in the way they take care of the customers and the food they serve. I bring family and friends here whenever they visit and never disappointed.

We "discovered" Calypso when we first moved to SoFla in 1998 and began going for the great fresh fish and beer selection. We've taken friends, family and visitors throughout the years and haven't been disappointed once. (Well, except for the time we showed on a Saturday evening only to find they were closed!) They continue to amaze with their quality... More

Years ago, this place was awesome. A small funky place that was always packed. Friendly service and great food. Now the food is seldom prepared properly and the service and management are indifferent. At best this food is ok. Don't waste your time or money here.

Not what we hoped for, the food was just okay. The selection of fresh fish was good but pricey compared to other nearby restaurants. Our son had the stuffed shrimp which was pretty good. I had the blue crab, crab cakes which were good but not great while my wife had the spicy peel and eat shrimp. Maybe it is... More

I don't know where all the rave reviews are coming from. We vacation in Pompano Beach every year and the restaurant competition is great, making for many fine dining experiences. We saw all the high reviews on some websites and were excited as we all were craving good seafood. This restaurant is in a strip mall (which is fine -... More

We were vacationing and came upon this restaurant. We LOVED it!! My 15 yr old son tried red snapper, tuna and dolphin for the first time. He now loves fish! The waitress was great, great selection of fresh fish, great prices! We will be sure to go back!

We ordered two entree's and shared. The entree's come with 2 sides and a very nice salad. We ordered 4 different sides to try. Everything was very good, but the best were the plantains. The entree's were grouper and stuffed shrimp. Both very good. With all this food we were stuffed. I recommend this highly.
