Good consistency, good food, good service, good parking, good environment... everything just right. Perfect for quick breakfast, lingering with friends, or a big brunch. Will go back again and again.

Family style restaurant. Good food, and large portions. Most was only average in taste, however. My husband did have a cheese steak sandwich that was notably good, and HUGE! Overall, a very good deal for the money. Service was a little slow, but it was supper hour on a Friday, and they seemed a bit short staffed. The wait staff... More

Two for dinner, early bird as it turned out. Wanted to go to Jimmy's Apizza, but Jimmy closed for the day and went to a wedding. Anyway, Pop's is basically a diner with diner-style food. Ordered the meat loaf dinner and the small ribeye steak dinner. The former was borderline edible, while the latter was just OK. Both dinners came... More

Nice to sit down in a non-chain restaurant after being on the road all day. Huge menu featuring burgers, sandwiches, and all day breakfast. The Panini sandwiches were great. Kids meals include drink and ice cream for about six bucks. Service was Friendly and prompt despite being nearly filled to capacity. Near all the hotels at exit 40, but not... More

We were seated promptly and the waitress had water at our table in under 60 seconds. we had the western Omelet (no cheese) and the Florentine... More

This is an old Milford restaurant that's moved to a brand new building. Nice and clean. Quick service. Average diner food. Extensive menu. Crowded on weekends for breakfast. Close to several hotels. Very good option for a quick meal...not for fine dining.

Pop's is a great family owned local establishment that is often bustling at breakfast but it also has a super dinner menu. We go for the early bird from 3-6 and you get lots of good choices. The food is tasty and prepared fast. I like the rice pudding dessert and their omelettes are really good too. Go and try... More
