We hadn't visited Pop's in several years, but decided to stop in last night. Forgot what we've been missing! This is a slow time of year for them, but the staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. Donna was the hostess, and Melody was our server. Can't say enough good about both of them. Donna was efficient and accommodating, and a... More

great old Florida atmosphere. Overlooking the intercoastal waterway, indoor & outdoor seating, live entertainment (which wasn't too loud). The food was good, we really enjoyed our evening there, will definately go again.

We came here last year and it's a favorite place to go for my husband. This was our 2nd time here together. The view is wonderful, watching the tide come in and out along with boaters, kayakers, etc. We had the Buffalo Shrimp which was plentiful and delicious. I had the tuna wrap with wasabi sauce on the side and... More

Ate at Pop's tonight with 5 of my Thur night friends and believe it was a gem that we were glad we found. Every Thur night for the last 13 years we have been going out with our group all over the area from Ft. Myer to Sarasota picking a different restaurant each Thur. The group will range from 5... More

When we landed in ft. Myers we drove straight to pops before we went home as we were craving the fresh fish from pops. It is not just fresh but cooked over an open fire. Very very good. I think it is the best food around. The burgers are great also, in fact all the food is good!

I have driven past here many times on the way to the beach and finally remembered to try it the other night. Two of us had grilled grouper with a sort of spicy pineapple salsa on the side. There was a choice of many side dishes, including healthy vegetables, which I appreciated. The third person had a meatball flatbread pizza... More

Everything from the hostess to the check was perfect! The fried baskets were abundant with large shrimp, oysters and extra crispy fries that were perfectly cooked thanks to chef Junior. Our waitress Jeannine (I bet I spelled it wrong) was friendly and attentive, we wanted for nothing! The manager Donna was also very friendly and fun to chat with. Thanks... More

Been to Pop's everytime we visit Casey Key and they don't disappoint. We have tried pretty much everything and haven't had a bad meal. Relax enjoy the view and have a Pop's punch.

We just "happened" upon this place. What a great find! Great views, food and atmosphere. They have my favorite "coconut shrimp" and it was yummy. We'll definitely return and bring our "riding" buddies.
