Great local spot

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... read 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

we hadn't been to Pop's Family Restaurant since they moved and was not in the mood to cook, so we stopped in for breakfast. The place was spotless and the decor is very nice. 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

Very nice new building. I heard how great this place was and gave it a try. I didn't like the food. I don't know if it was the oil/butter or what but I probably wont go again

Just ate breakfast here. Really good. Large portions, nice menu, choices. While visiting friends in Milford, Pop's was recommended. What a good choice. Just off exit 40, I-95. Turn on to Old Gate Lane toward New Haven Ave.

This is the first time I have eaten at Pop's since they moved from their New Haven Ave. location. The place was very clean and the food was very good. It is a definite step up from other the other diners around town. Will return.

GO THERE!!! Fabulous Italian Family home cooked meals to die for! We ate two dinners there and had much left over. I had a Chef Salad that must've consisted of 3lbs of meat rolled and displayed exquisitely over this massive bowl of salad! It would've fed 5! All reasonably priced too! Raviolis....WOW! Steak...Melted with a savory taste. The service is... More
