Pops has a great atmosphere. The fire pits are great for a larger group of people. We were a group of 7 and had plenty of space. Everyone enjoyed their food. I had the mix seafood grill and it was excellent. The edamame salad was a favorite. Wait staff was pleasant and helpful but seemed to have to many tables... More

service was very slow and inattentive until nearly time for the check, then things picked up a bit. The "baked mac and cheese" probably came from Stouffers, gooey fluorescent orange. Seafood was OK not as good as I expected. Probably should have avoided fried.

Nice view, but don't come on boat as it seemed boaters aren't wanted. Food was ok, nothing special. I did go back for a second time and sat inside. Service was good from bar tender (5'5" blonde).

I live only a few blocks from Pops and visit once or twice a week for a beer and sometimes a bite. The food is much improved over the last year or two but don't expect your best meal ever. Pops is worth visiting because of the location alone; it's what you'd hope to find visiting Florida and is a... More
