Loved this place, delicious meal & friendly, efficient service! Large portions reasonably priced too! It was real treat to find Pops & we'll be sure to go there again when we return to the area!

Chicken Noodle Soup was good. Chicken Pot Pie was not so good. Crust was good, but filling was like soup with very few vegetables. Pieces of vegetables were minuscule. Asked for bread and butter, but was told "No". Dinner rolls were not ready. Don't know why I wasn't offered a slice of bread and some butter. Took quite awhile for... More

I really enjoyed my dinner here. Next week when I come back to Milford I will be there for more meals. This is the type of place I look for, clean, home style friendly, non chain, with a broad menu and all day breakfast. Don't pass it up.

My husband and I used to be regulars when we lived in Milford. Now it's a must stop whenever we visit home. Love the family atmosphere and the owners. The food is always good. Wish we could find a Pop's where we live now!

I have been to the old pop's restaurant when visiting friends in the area. The food was always great but the building and parking left a lot to be desired! When we went to Milford this time and got to eat in their new location - it was sheer heaven! The building is absolutely gorgeous!! You really feel as though... More

Very good food that won't break your wallet. The salads are immense and the omelets are sublime. You can even order beer and wine. Place gets packed on the weekends so plan ahead. They have early bird specials for dinner so come early if u can. Coffee is good and not an ugly waitress in sight! Highly recommend.

I should start by saying I love these kind of places - the one where the locals appear to eat. Pops has a basic menu with seafood, salads, pasta, and breakfast all day. While house hunting in CT, I ate there several times (it's close to the Hyatt Place) - breakfast and dinner. The menu is varied, the desserts looked... More

I stopped here en route to NYC and was expecting more of a small old fashioned diner but it turned out to be a modern up to date restaurant with progressive finishes. There is upscale tile on the floors and the walls and there is a hard ceiling with a cove which has blue neon in it. the restrooms were... More

Pop's has moved but the 'place' is still the same. Great service, very good food (the pancakes however are the BEST) at reasonable prices. Great value for the entire family,
