Family Favorite!

We end every visit with a lunch at Pops before we head to the airport. If we get to stay long enough, one or two other lunches will be had there as well. We love sitting close to the water and watching the boats go by. Sometimes we're even lucky enough to see Dolphin jumping. This is not fine... read more

Being a cook myself, I can tell shrimp and lobster have been frozen for a long time and thawed with warm water. Service was average, drinks ok. Definitely, not going back.

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
