Good food, good prices, friendly staff, owner doesn't mind rubbing elbows with customers. Nothing exceptional on the menu, but everything is very good, especially the prices. Plan on spending some time: the owner loves to chat with customers and has plenty of jokes and stories to entertain the kids. This is quintessential Hatteras: imminently practical, budget minded, utilitarian, no-frills good... More

This is a family-friendly bar, if that is such a thing! With very few seats, families with children are welcome to sit at the bar to eat. The ambiance here is nothing fancy, but the food is delicious, and the service is fast and friendly. The bartender/waitress/hostess is amazing and she works hard to keep everyone's glasses full and appetites... More

I give this place two stars because our server/bartender/bus person, Wendy did her best to provide good service; and I liked the blue grass music playing on the radio. Also my husband liked the raw oysters although there was no thought whatsoever given to presentation. I ordered wine and was brought a plastic mini bottle and a plastic cup in... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat and drink on Hatteras. You get a lot of delicious food for the price you pay! It's always fresh, delicious and ample portions! The lemon pepper scallops are to die for!

We were really hoping to like this place, the vibe, the food.. but, sad to say, we didn't. We walked in and waited for about 15 minutes, just standing there at the bar, waiting for someone to either give us a menu or tell us to have a seat or something. Someone finally acknowledged us and said we can order... More

Like other reviewers have indicated, wonderful local seafood. Server was working hard. Fills up by 6:30pm. Beat the crowd and enjoy the shrimp.

First time on Outer Banks. Been on the beach with GF. Drove to Pop's. Don't let outside fool you! Had the oysters, steamed shrimp. Both were excellent. Also, order side of hush puppies. Country Music playing in the bar. Beer was only $1.50 and cold!

Our party of 4 enjoyed a casual dinner at Pop's Fish House Restaurant. We arrived at 5:30 and were the only patrons...by 6:30 it was a full house. Our service was friendly and prompt. The steamed shrimp was perfectly cooked, the onion rings delicious (tender onion coated with a light crispy batter) and the fish tacos generous and yummy.

Not fancy. But some of the best seafood to be had. locals and visitors mingle share a cold beer and hot shrimp. been going for at least 25 years.
