The food was great! Nothing fancy but very tasty. My husband and I went there late for supper. They had plenty of seating. The menu isn't huge. If you're wanting a big heavy meal, you should probably go somewhere else. They mostly have hot dogs, burgers, and sandwiches, (plus soups, sides, apps, and quite a few desserts). The waitress was...

4 of us went recently for dinner. Next to nothing on the menu as dinner items. Usually diners have something good to choose from. 3 of us had sandwiches. All 3 were not very good at all. 1 person has chili and said I was ok. There has got to be better places in Carolina Beach to choose from.

This restaurant was better than expected. I had a shrimp PooBoy hoagie with sweet potato fries and was very happy with my choice. Food was delivered fast and hot. Very good value too. I would return. Deep fried Oreo's were interesting!

Like this place because it is a nice hole-in-the-wall type place. Food is slightly above average, but fine for a beach community. Well worth a stop in.

I was visiting the Carolinas and I wanted to have some real Carolina BBQ. I definitely found it at pops diner. Although the only BBQ I saw on the on the menu, was the BBQ pork sandwich and the basket. They hit the nail on the head with the flavor and the price. I mean it was awesome !! Very... More

Just came back from Pop's Diner and we loved it. The service was great and our server was very friendly. We love the fact that the name of the place has always been Pop's Diner. Try the grilled cheese, it's to die for. My husband got the one patty burger and he loved it. We will be back.
