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

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.

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.
