In operation for over 30 years, offering happy hour specials from 3-6 p.m., fresh fish specials, live entertainment, indoor and outdoor seating in a relaxed atmosphere. Pop's is a member of the "Sarasota Originals" and was awarded the 2018 Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor. We recently added a new multi-level elevated bar under a spacious tiki.
