went here a couple days ago. With some friends, food was great, had the buffalo shrimp wrap and alligator ribs. a plethora of fish tacos were served. My only gripe was the service was kind of slow, and they weren't very busy. Return imminent. The gator ribs were phenomenal.

My family and I eat at pops at least once a week! The food and drinks are great and the staff is too! Whenever we eat here it is difficult to choose what to eat because there are so many amazing options. Coconut shrimp, shrimp quesadilla, fried pickles, cold shrimp, flatbreads, mixed grill, burgers, steam pots and the pineapple upside-down... More

The atmosphere was wonderful, view great, but portion sizes way, way too small. Left and went to McDonald's after to fill up. Partner had blackened grouper- raw in center and a very tiny piece. Baked sweet potato was loaded with sugar. Partner is diabetic so couldn't eat it! The steampot was short clams, and not very much food. Will only... More

It's more about the experience. Cute, quirky group of buildings on the Inter-coastal Waterway. Food is good, reasonably priced. Sweet potato fries are outstanding! We've been here about a dozen times with friends. Every time, all have been very satisfied with their meals.

Pop's has a lot of room- both inside the A/C and outside along the Intracoastal Waterway with a view of Nokomis Beach. We loved watching the boats and personal watercraft pass by, along with a gorgeous sunset. The fish & chips were superb. The fish was lightly breaded and a generous portion of deliciousness-no mystery fish here! Their edamame salad... More
