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

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

We seem to be frequent visitors to this place. Sometimes its just for drinks and other time its for appetizers. The food sometimes the food is average for the area but the drinks, the view and the friendly staff make up for it

Was on Siesta Key FL for Labor Day weekend.

I was disappointed in both the dining room area and the food. Sept 2014. Very hot and sunny in the closed porch area. The shrimp and seafood platter tasted very fried and as if the food had come from the freezer. I was under the impression the seafood was fresh since the restaurant is on the water. The beer is...
