This place should be called Pop's Bar. It is a small bar with very limitted seating if stopping for dinner. There were 4 in our family group from 21 to 70. The place was loud and packed with no place for my 70 yr old mother to sit except a small 2 top, tall bar table with backless bar stools.... More

We loved that Pop's was very casual and relaxed and found the service to be excellent. The waitress/bartender was very friendly and efficient; it was amazing how she managed the bar and food orders! As far as the food, we were not terribly impressed. The burger was a small, premade patty, the hush puppies tough, and the scallops tiny. However,... More

Not only did 12 of us walk in for dinner but the place was hopping. One bartender and waitress all in one. Not only did she keep up with everyone's needs, but the food came out in record time. Oh and most important the food was amazing!

Been eating at Pop's for maybe 10 years now, lunch and dinner. The oysters and clam chowder are very good, as is all the seafood offered there. Pop's has a quite tasty change of pace Philly Cheese Steak sandwich. The Carolina BBQ is very good and of course they have a great cheeseburger. If you get a bit tired of... More

Stopped in with a group of 11, we filled the last of the tables and the bar was already full. The waitress was very pleasant and never seemed flustered by taking care of a packed house by herself. The food kept rolling out of the kitchen at a constant rate so it was not too long of a wait. Everything... More

If you are looking for a place to take or meet friends for a few brews and great seafood you cannot go wrong here. We visit as often as we can when on Hatteras and now that the smoking has moved outside we enjoy it even more. The place is small, unpretentious and casual. Expect to meet a few interesting... More

We visited based on good reviews. This is a cool little hole in the wall spot that seemed to be popular with the locals and bikers. Beer in cans, cups and utensils were plastic. We started with half dozen raw oysters, which were local ( about 3 hours away). They were awesome! My husband and I shared a sampler dinner... More

This is a fun place to have a quick and delicious seafood meal. Everyone in our party of 6 found something on the menu to please them (including broiled seafood.) The service was fast and friendly, the drinks were cold, and the hushpuppies delicious. This place is very much a bar though, with a few hightop tables along the periphery... More
