Great location, on the intercoastal, with both inside and outside bars and seating. Very informal, reasonably priced food served on paper plates or in a basket. Menu has something for everyone. Usually good to very good food.

We wanted a restaurant with outside seating by the water for sunset and this was a great choice. Very casual and very busy. We enjoyed our food--crab cakes and a shrimp and crab salad platter on salad greens. Everything was delicious. We would definitely come back to try other dishes.

Great dinner for the price, we had the Steamship Pot, our two picks were the lobster tails and the mussels for two. Excellent for the price. The place could use a little updating or a least a new paint job.

While going down the ICW we stopped at Pops for lunch. Seaside bar atmosphere that works. Good service and fresh local seafood. Quality of sides was great. I had a blackened fresh Mahi- Mahi sandwich with an edamame salad (special). My wife had the tuna wrap with wasabi that was excellent. The kids loved their burgers.

This is a great little restaurant on the water. Food is good. I give it an A+ for location and atmosphere. However, being a local, I have definitely noticed that things change when it is tourist season here. Portions become smaller, drinks become "weaker". I am also not keen on the fact that they feed a local sea bird on... More

We are in Florida visiting from Ohio and always enjoy seafood while we are here. We like to eat later so we got here about 8:00pm and told that there was a 50 minute wait, which we were okay with, but after a few minutes I noticed the hostess had NO idea what she was doing. People were coming up... More
