Stopped here for lunch. What a nice little local bar joint. Food was good, reasonable priced and friendly service. Sandwiches, seafood, frys, and other typical bar food. Not just raw oysters. Don't let the name fool ya. Great joint would go back

We had a fun and relaxing dinner at Pop's on our recent OBX trip. I was a little leery when I had heard that one bartender/waitress takes care of an entire bar and restaurant, but we were pleasantly surprised. Service was fast and friendly. Food was fresh (the oysters and shrimp were my favorites!) and beer was cold. Try it--we... More

Pops is one of the best kept secrets. Food was great and by far one of the better places we ate. The staff was super friendly and made us feel like one of the locals. Scallops and clam strips were delicious. A must go to if you are in the area.

When you go to Hatteras Island you should not be looking for fine dining. Go to Pops for succulent seafood prepared exactly right. Their pick three is a wonderful choice. There can be a fly problem and it is very small venue. But relax, go with the flow and enjoy fresh seafood. This is a local's favorite

Stopped for lunch and enjoyed their spicy shrimp BUT the wasabi shrimp and fish bites appetizers were a mouthful of bliss.

Stopped by in June when we were craving some fried seafood. Gobbled down an order of fried shrimp, my favorite seaside treat. Good beer at good prices, too. Kind of a dive bar-ish vibe, but not too run down. Great spot to grab lunch in Buxton.

Great food! The horseradish was outstanding. The bartender was sassy, fun, and very helpful. Feels like a locals spot. Don't be scared of by the dim lighting and shabby decor, the food was great. Not a family friendly establishment in my opinion.

This is a great little dive in Buxton with some local flavor. It's mostly a bar with some tables around the outer walls, but it has some really good food. My son and I each had a dozen clams, which were super fresh and tasty. Give it a shot - you won't be sorry!

We stopped in for an early dinner around 4.30pm on a weekday in July - and that's just the right time to go as the place is small and fills up very quick. Even though it's a "bar", there was a couple of families with kids ages 10-15 at the tables (not at the bar), and everybody was comfortable and... More

This place was awesome! The food was great and reasonably priced compared to everywhere else. We were only upset that we found it the last day on the island.
