This is a great little restaurant on the water. Food is good. I give it an A+ for location and atmosphere. However, being a local, I have definitely noticed that things change when it is tourist season here. Portions become smaller, drinks become "weaker". I am also not keen on the fact that they feed a local sea bird on... More

My wife and our 18 month old twins went here for dinner on a Tuesday night. We had an excellent table with on the ICW with a great view of the water. Food was better than we thought it was going to be. My wife got the sampler platter that had a lobster tail, tuna and some shrimp. I had... More

We are in Florida visiting from Ohio and always enjoy seafood while we are here. We like to eat later so we got here about 8:00pm and told that there was a 50 minute wait, which we were okay with, but after a few minutes I noticed the hostess had NO idea what she was doing. People were coming up... More

The setting is excellent. Right on the Intercoastal Water way. As we waited for dinner, a boat came by that was being followed by a dolphin. The food was superb. We had the mixed grill which was 3 mango shrimp on a skewer plus a piece of blackened mahi-mahi AND a lobster tail.

We haven't stopped here since January because of the crowds. Boy did we miss it. We both had fish, Maui and salmon, over a salad. Fish was grilled over a wood fire and was excellent. We both kicked ourselves for not stopping by sooner. Had seat right next to water. Beautiful day and view topped off with great food.

I am a local and come by boat quite often and live in the neighborhood. I support local business but after my experience on 4-12-2014 it will be hard to ever return. Their great operations manager Karl Schwolow might have restaurant background from Vegas but knows nothing about customer service or how to seat people. I'm sure he can wash... More

This was my second visit to Pops and as I experienced my first visit, my second was just as pleasing. Had the raw oysters for an appetizer & Fried Oyster Salad for main meal. Found everything to be fresh & enjoyable. Staff was pleasant & polite. Would recommend this restaurant to family, friends & visitors.
