Description: 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.

I had made a short list of places to eat while in the Destin area - we checked in at HPI and I reviewed my list with one of the delightful staffers there. She agreed with my list and our first stop was Pompano Joes. Beachside, plenty of shade and fantastic food. We had the coconut shrimp (heavenly), oysters and grilled fish sandwich. The pineapple coleslaw was a surprising delight - not a slaw fan, I asked for seconds of it. Perfect balance of flavors and textures. Great service and of course you cant beat their view.

We visited twice this week, and have been here a couple times the past several years. The service is always wonderful, bars inside & outside on the beach! Varied menu with fresh seafood. Get the gumbo, crab cakes or a shrimp po' boy and you will be pleased. For a walk on the beach after a beautiful sunset and great dinner in Destin this is the place.

It was our first time to Pompano Joe's and we would return again for the food and the great ocean view. The place had a great beach vibe to it and the atmosphere was up beat and fun. We had a great server and the food was very good. What more would you want!

Had a late lunch here after a day at the beach. Was wonderful... Great food, great service, and a beautiful view of the Gulf. Reasonably priced for what you get. Had the shrimp salad , and it was loaded w/ fried shrimp. Had it w/ blue cheese dressing and it was so good. My husband had the coconut shrimp , and he loved his meal. All in all it was a great place to have lunch after a day at the beach. Would defitnitely go again !!

We stayed at a condo across the street so this was the first place we went to for dinner. Great view, good food (a bit overpriced) and good service. During our stay we found much better seafood places to eat at.
