We eat at Pop's every time we are in town. This trip, our server Nick, recommended some new items and they were fantastic. He was very attentive and we are going back again this trip!

You can sit indoors, out in the sun, in the shade, or even around a fire pit at night. Lots of choices. I love sitting by the water to watch the boats going by! Enjoy great drinks or a pitcher of beer with friends. The food is casual, but good. I love their turkey, bacon and Swiss panini or their... More

We walked in and the first thing that confronted us was a somewhat offbeat looking bar area..wife called it skanky .Despite this negative first impression we were elated by the time... More

My wife and I were looking for somewhere romantic to celebrate our anniversary lunch. We're vegetarians so we don't eat seafood but wanted to experience the waterside dining of Pop's. There were a surprising number of good vegetarian options on the menu for a seafood restaurant. I'm not going to say it was the best food I ever had but... More

Our realtor and vacation home property manager recommended this restaurant and they did not steer us wrong. My wife, son and I dined here and had a table under the roof of the outdoor dining area next to the intercostal. We are glad we ate where we did as a heavy rain started and drove some patrons from their tables... More
