Award-winning Gumbo at Pompano Joe’s of Destin

A measure of any good seafood restaurant is its gumbo.

Pompano Joe’s is one of those places that continues to serve one of the best bowls of seafood gumbo in town.  The menu proudly declares that the gumbo was crowned a champion at this year’s Sandestin Gumbo Festival. Pompano Joe’s won the veteran division this year and has also been a People’s Choice winner.Screen Shot 2014-06-07 at 6.03.11 PM

The Pompano Joe’s recipe is a perfect combination of seafood, sausage, roux, spices, and rice. 

I think the atmosphere of Pompano Joe’s also adds to the experience as every table is beachside, and on our visit, the service was excellent. Follow your bowl of gumbo with a piece of homemade key lime pie, and you will enjoy a wonderful taste of Florida.
