This is a great place to grab a bite to eat and/or have a refreshing, frosty drink!! Located on the ICW at Nokomis Beach, this is a favorite of locals and visitors. Come see the dolphins play in the ICW while you enjoy the fun at Pop's!! Visit Pop's by boat or car!! Enjoy!!

We are locals and one of us has lived in the area since 1992 and have been coming to Pops ever since. We especially enjoy the "specials" nights (burgers, fish tacos).

By far the best food for a fair price. Manager Carl is on top of everything. My wife and I call this our date spot. I can honestly say that I have never had such a good burger with the wood charbroiled taste. The calamari is a must and the wings are the best. The addition of the new IPA... More
