This is a great local place. It is NOT fancy, but friendly, quick service. One thing I love about vacation is talking w/ the locals! The beer is ICE cold and we never had to wait for a refill. We ordered the fish sandwich, crab cake sandwich and burger.I didn't mind the paper plates and plastic silverware at all. A... More

What a great place this turned out to be, got the steamed seafood platter for two and it was amazing! Shrimp, crawfish, crab, scallops. Definitely a local place, not fancy at all, one waitress for the entire restaurant but she did a really good job. I will return to pops and recommend it to people, what an awesome locals seafood...

Having played golf in the sun I was looking for a place to get a cold beer and some raw oysters. This isn't the place. No beers on tap, they are all bottles from a cooler. The oysters were marginal tasting and small. I ordered fries with them any they came 2 beers and almost 20 mins later. I was... More

This place is a fisherman's hole, think once bikers and family seafood shack. We really like it. Super cold beer in bottles only. Tasty raw bar and steamed shrimp.

Pop's is a great local eating spot. No chain appeal here, just the basics with great food and cold beer. They serve a variety of local seafood and cook it to perfection. A must see while on the Outer Banks.

Gristleburgers. Bottled beer only. Supposedly the shrimp were fresh and good but I am allergic to them, so no shrimp for me. Even the french fries had this sort of rancid, sour taste, like nobody had changed the oil in the deep fryer this year. Won't go back.

A great little place that is very apparent a local hangout. We came in to a packed house, waited for a few minutes for a free table for 2 and 2 spots at the bar. We had good service.....even though there was only 1 waitress serving everyone in the place, including at the bar!!! Great local seafood: Steamed Spice Shrimp... More

What a fantastic place. Came into bar and asked if they would put World Cup on one of the screens and they did. Eventually, after Nascar race over all screens were put on all screens. Even turned off music so we could listen to game. What customer service! Peel and eat shrimp were off the chain. Ended up getting 2... More

If you want simple and local this is the perfect place. We shared the platter and everything was delicious! Nothing fancy but we couldn't of been more satisfied. The service and food were great.
