The New Pops.....Scrumptious Food, Great Service, Very Casual, Slightly Pricey....

We have been to the original Pops a handful of times and returned Sunday. We sat outside at a picnic table because we had our puppy with us. We decided to walk across the street to Pop's new additional location because they have a bigger deck on an inlet, so the view was pretty and the tables new... read more

Other reviews are right on. An amazing waitress. Even took some time to give us tourist suggestions. Good raw oysters and clams. Sauce was fresh made with a nice kick of horseradish. Saw lots of steamed shrimp at other tables. Maybe because it's 2/3 the price of other places.

My friends and I heard about this restaurant and decided to stop in and try it. It's a really small place that more than makes up for it's size with the great food and wonderful service. We walked in and were seated right away. The waitress was AMAZING!!! She took orders, refilled glasses, bussed tables, bartended...you name it, she did... More

My friends and I had gotten recommendations about this place for our friends. It looks like your typical roadside seafood bar on the outside, but on the inside, even though it was very busy, you'll fine one Superwaitress, who does everything from bartending, to bussing tables, to taking (and remembering) orders, to running the register. She was amazing at what... More

I recently spent a week in the Outer Banks on a solo vacation. For the second time in a few years, I stopped in Pop's for lunch. I sat at the bar and got immediate service. I ordered a berm raw oysters and the fried shrimp lunch special. Everything was fantastic. My beer was cold, the oysters fresh with plenty... More

Anyone who's been there once, will be there again & again & again. It's a local bar/restaurant...nothing fancy but great food. Go there, you'll love it. \

The food is decent and fairly priced. Was a little disappointed they only had bay scallops (no sea scallops), but I thoroughly enjoyed my fried shrimp.

Great local bar food, small and kept clean by waitress/bartender all in one. Wish she had a helper at least to clear, clean tables when busy. Always go there at least twice while we are there. Love any fried seafood especially the fried oysters!!!

Pop's is small, but has a wide variety of seafood specials, like Mahi bites, Mahi sandwiches, Tuna bites, fried shrimp and chowder. Also has chicken tenders, wraps, hamburgers, etc. Portion sizes are reasonable and the French fries that accompany the meal are crispy and tasty. Service is excellent, we went here twice on vacation and both waitresses were very friendly... More
