Good place to have a Pop at sunset

Pops was at the southern end of Casey Key from the Casey Key Fish house(CKFH). I only mention that because of the similarities and differences between the 2. CKFH and Pops are similar in price and food quality. It just seems like Pops has a more casual atmosphere and you enjoy yourselves more... read more

I had to stop reading some of the bad reviews and take a minute to respond. My husband and I go to Pop's every time we visit the area, at least 3 times a year. We love it. First let me say to those with food allergies, stop acting like morons. When you are on vacation your brain should not... More

My business partner and I ate lunch at Pop's today. Jeanine was our service, and she went over and above to provide outstanding service. The last three times I've been at Pop's, I've enjoyed fish so today, I tried a good old fashion cheeseburger. Sandy had the conch fritter and had plenty to take home for dinner. We'll be back!

We ate here a couple times on our trip trying out different things each day. The Grouper sandwich was wonderful, very tasty. Had a seafood pot/clambake with lobster and clams which was very good and not too expensive. My wife had a couple of their signature drinks which she though were wonderful. We sat outside both times we ate there... More

My husband and I visited Pop's Sunset Grill for the first time last night, and it definitely won't be the last time we visit! We loved the location on the water, with a view of boats, dolphins, and fishermen. As far as the food goes - they knocked it out of the ballpark! We came in for an appetizer, maybe... More

My husband and I frequent Pops a lot. It is a fantastic outdoor/indoor restaurant, with tables and a bar that overlooks the intercoastal waterway. They always have great entertainment, we especially like Lisa's band. The food is great and the portion sizes are large, this place wins hands down over Sharkey's
