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.

Definitely one of the better restaurants in Destin...food is better than decent, service is not bad, but can be inconsistent...can't beat the open-air beachside atmosphere. I eat here every trip to Destin.

Had the garlic grouper with the lobster creme sauce and it was wonderful. Gumbo also excellent. A must during a Destin visit.

Good food, great view of the beach while we were eating. Had an excellent waiter. Grilled fish was very good.

You can't ask for a better view than Pompano Joe's! Usually beachside restaurants have the ordinary, boring fried seafood baskets, not here. Very tasty dishes, I prefer items off of the Caribbean side of menu - great if you like spicy food.

Beach restaurant. Exceptional ocean front setting. Not fine dining, but great casual place for lunch or dinner on the beach. Drinks were good and strong, but served in plastic cups (wine too). Fish was really good. I had grouper and wife had mahi mahi, both excellent.
