Great loacation

Good place to watch the snook feeding in the intercoastal while having a drink. The location is great and the food is good and the prices are as well. If you have small children they should be watched at all times due to the proximity of the water. Parking can be tight as this is a popular place... read more

My elderly mother is not very mobile these days, but we managed to get her out on the deck at Pops for lunch. The gracious hosts went out of their way to be sure we had a spot with a view and we were entertained throughout our meal by the passing boats, kayakers, fishermen and women, and kite flyers on...

Right on the intercoastal waterway north of Venice,Many tables are a few feet from the water, Good food, good service, this is informal and moderately priced. Put on some shoes and come as you are, whether on your boat (you can dock it feet from your dining table) or on your bike. Their Grouper Reuben is excellent. They do a... More

I've been to this place many times in the last 30 years and was so surprised to find it in such a state. We waited 10 minutes with a buzzer for a table even though there were many tables available and no one ahead of us. The fruity rum drinks were overpriced and served up in a plastic cup. At... More

Our fault for going out to dinner on a Saturday night at 7:00 pm, their busiest time. Their fault for being completely unprepared for their expected crowd. After a 90-minute wait, our group of four was finally seated. Food took over 30 minutes to arrive after ordering. All of us had Seafood. Overall Analysis: Lobster: Over-cooked and rubbery, luke-warm, needed... More

Stopped in after a 8 month absence, still terrible service at the bar. The older blonde with all the ink ignored us, the new younger lady took our drink orders. The blonde ignored us until I asked if we could get menus, she never responded but came walking by a few minutes later and threw them on the bar. I... More

We went to Pops on our recent trip to Venice. It was my first time at this great place. I am a sucker for dining outside and that is exactly what this place specializes in! We were a little early for sunset but enjoyed the evening atmosphere nonetheless. The parking was not a worry as we dropped most of the... More

Enjoyed a very good lunch. Nachos were great for appetizer. There were 4 of us and we were all very pleased with our lunch items. I will return again. Nice view of the intra coastal waterway. Plenty of seating.

We spent a lovely evening at Pop's and will definitely be returning. Nice crowd, great food (try the steamer baskets), and overall the best service I've had in quite some time.
