Went here with family while on vacation. Food quality and service were average for the burgers and chicken dishes we ordered. Decor was dated and some of the signs on the wall weren't as family friendly as one might expect for a family diner. Prices were reasonable.

We rolled into Carolina Beach late and starving! Our options were looking bleak (Ie: McDonalds), but we decided to check out the strip just in case something was open! Boy were we happy to see Pops open! Great service! I asked for a cheeseburger with no bun (due to gluten allergy) and they filled my plate with all the toppings... More

The food was good and not too expensive. The diner was small and there was a wait but it was a nice place for families.

Love this place!! Back for my 3rd time this year! My family loves going here, we are never disappointed, the food is consistent and big, always filling, and the same servers take care if us.

We all ordered various seafood baskets and one family member ordered a burger. The seafood shrimp was terrible and undercooked! Hush puppies, fries, flounder,crab cake over cooked! Slaw looked and tasted discussing! Burger was good. Way overpriced for a family of 4/it was $75!! The quality wasn't there!

The burgers were delicious, the tater tots were strange (looking and tasting- but they warned us ahead of time-... More
