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.

The food and service was very good although a little expensive. I would avoid peak times as it was very busy.

Awesome place! Great bar! Loved the drink “Stress reliever” ☺️ Moms day out and we spent 2 1/2 hours there. Fish tacos were amazing!

This is a beach shack type restaurant, not something where you go for great food, but it has arguably the best gumbo in the area. It also serves sandwiches and platters (fries are not fresh cut) and a couple of salads, but those are not a reason to go. Also, relatively pricey for a burger, given all the really good burger restaurants in the area. Parking can be a hassle, because the parking lot is also for public beach access, so it's difficult to find a spot in season.

We went 2 different times mid day and evening. Mid day was great early happy hour with 5.00 drinks ( which is a bargain ) and discounted appetizers. The Beach party was a great shareable appetizer and a good way to try different things. Live music and you can sit on the beach literally while drinking a Pina Colada. Yesssss!! Oh and the coconut cake.. yum!
