We had a party of eight that set outside for lunch. Everyone chose different entrees and were happy with their meal. I would definitely recommend this place.

The food was just OK but the sparkling wine was flat. I asked for another glass and got the same thing. Next I asked the bartender to see the bottle. It was half empty! She just poured another glass from the same bottle after I said it was flat. After that I said I'll just take our check and obviously... More

When we moved to the region 8 years ago we discovered Popolano's and it has always been one of our favorites. I'm sad the tortellini is no longer on the menu as I use to crave it! I love their buffalo wings and go when you can sit out on the patio. There are so many good places to eat... More

We arrived 1/2 hour before closing and were concerned that we would need to rush, but the staff was very gracious and there were several other tables just starting as well. The kids reported very good grilled cheese and chicken strips. I had the pot roast sandwich with grilled onions - very tender and very good. It would be a... More

We went to this restaurant because we heard we could sit outside. That sounded like a good place to bring the kids. The atmosphere was relaxing and beautiful. We sat along the street and enjoyed people watching and just spending time as a family. The prices on the menu caused us to balk a bit, so we decided just to... More

We stopped here before visiting the Dunes on a weekday. Although the weather was a little cool we had a very enjoyable lunch on the front patio. The food was fantastic. The pot roast sandwich was the best I ever had. The box lunch specials are the best value ever that include soup, sandwich, salad, dessert. Absolutely go here if... More

We did not go inside as is was a terrific evening to enjoy the outdoor patio area. I had the blackened tuna steak which was awesome! Our service was fine. We will definitely return next time we are in the area.
