Great waterside location with great food and ambiance. At least during the summer they have daily specials, so be sure to figure out what day you want to visit to save $. Example: Monday's were 1/2 priced burgers; Tuesday's 1/2 priced tacos, etc. They appear to have a golf cart shuttle for you in case you have to park a... More

The food was excellent! If you are looking for seafood, this is your place. We wanted seafood and something on the water. Pops sits directly on the water. My kids sat on the dock and fed the fish while they waited for their meal. A dolphin came very close to them and they loved it! Great atmosphere with excellent customer... More

Atmosphere is wonderful. Food, drinks and wait staff is horrible. They need to get better cooks, bartenders and wait staff. I was very dissapointed. Plus this is in a very expensive part of town...it should be superior. Bad job pops. Will never go back nor recommend to anyone.
