Stopped in for lunch....really great water side dinning. But also the food..Grouper Ruben, and...one of the best hamburgers around makes it a very good pick. And the service was very good. So if you are around Casey Key I do recommend POP's ..drive down past others for the best !!!'

Went with friends for lunch and sat on the outside deck with a view of the waterway. I must say, the view alone was worth the price. Saw manatee's, birds, boats and fish. The food is your typical burgers, chicken and fish. We had the burgers (well prepared and tasty) and the chicken sandwiches. The service was prompt and our... More

We have a place in Nokomis and visit Pop's several times each year. My previous reviews have all been great for all the usual reasons--updates in decor, on the water, new menu...great service but after the past three visits, it's time to register a complaint. Our food has tasted like propane and we just can't get past it. We have... More

Hello Travelpapi153! Thank you for your continued patronage of Pops and sharing your experience with other TA readers! I am not sure where the "propane taste" may be originating from, we only cook with hard wood on outdoor grill and other cooking equipment is not exposed to menu items. I am working with our kitchen and management team to see... More

The food is fantastic. Had the best fish and chips I have ever had here! Sitting outside by the water is relaxing and a bird watching event! So many of the larget birds come up to check out what everyone is eating! This is old Florida atmosphere, laid back and easy going!

My husband & I were camping in the area and decided to go venture out. Pops Sunset Grill was recommended to us. It is located on the intercostal. The restaurant is casual & homey with a very relaxed atmosphere. We went for lunch. My husband loved his Reuben grouper sandwich - very large portion. I got the grilled Turkey, bacon... More
