Some friends of ours who winter in the area took us to Pop's Sunset Grill. My husband and I ordered the cocunut shrimp and it was very good at a reasonable price. The sauce that came with it was fabulous. Fun, casual, and affordable place to go.

The food & Service was great. However, they would not sit us until your whole party arrived. Mind you that we did not know this after 10 minutes of standing around the hostess area until I asked to be seated while noticing the other people were seated who came after us. Without the two seniors with us, we would have... More

Typical dockside decor, really good fried shrimp! Light batter, fried crisp made for very tasty shrimp. I had the edemame salad and it was pretty good. Add a draft beer, a nice sunset and an occasional boat going by..well, it was a good night even though it was unusually cool. We would go back!

The quesadillas were thin and tasteless. This is a noisy place. The floors and uneven, the furniture plastic. The only update is the sign outside. The prices are 'white-tablecloth' but your wine is served in a plastic tumbler.

My girl friend had the cold plate, I had the seafood platter. We were both very pleased with the chef as the food was cooked perfect. We have found a new favorite restaurant. The food came came to our table faster than expected. The Edamame salad was delicious side dish which we have never had.

We had a 1/2 steamship pot with lobster and shrimp for 2 @ @$26.95. Very sad portions. The lobster was so tiny and over cooked like rubber. The shrimp were small also. They only gave us 2 small potatoes in the pot. Potatoes are cheap, so I don't know what the cook was thinking. There were no corn coblettes. I... More

Hello Jasmine910- Thank you for your recent visit to Pops! I am sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. I would note that you mention a Steampot for two when it appears that you had actually ordered the Steampot for one? This may account for the portion sizes? However, we obviously missed the corn cobbettes. I apologize... More

We heard that the food here was just average, but had great views and ambiance. So since it was a short walk from our rental we decided to give it a try.

I have been here several times and the food was always great. The outdoor fire pit seats are really cool. You can walk down to the dock at night and watch the snook feed on minnows thanks to the underwater lighting. Quick food is always hot and fresh. The service can be hit and miss, some waiters are more friendly... More

Recommended to us by a local of Venice we decided to try Pops for dinner. Not knowing what to expect we arrived and went towards the entrance where Pops came into its own! It was vast when you actually got inside. Lots of individual eating areas outside, under cover and inside. What did appeal outside were the circular tables with... More
