Stopped at Pop's for the first time to check it out. From the outside, nothing special. It's next to a marina. Once you go in, it's a different story. The inside is window lined so that you can watch the boats going in and out of the channel. There is also an outside eating area along with a bar and... More

good food, good service, on the inner coastal, watch the boats sail by. Nice family restaurant. Pleasant bar and music too. It is a local favorite.

A quaint and quiet spot for a late lunch, I thoroughly enjoyed my Grouper Reuben. The fish was perfectly cooked (fried) and not at all greasy; nice and crisp! Sauerkraut and melted cheese topped off a huge sandwich! I would absolutely go back....

Pops Sunset grill isn't fancy, but it's fantastic. I've been there by foot and boat. We often take the boat out and when we are hungry dock at Pops and get out and eat. It's so convenient. It's not a fancy place but I wouldn't expect that. The view can't be beat, and the seafood is so fresh. My favorite... More

The salads were very good and so were the Fish'n'Chips. It is very big portion sizes and a nice, friendly wait staff. There was a terrific view. However, expect a loud and rowdy bar clientele.

Unfortunately we did not get to eat at Pops restaurant because we encountered a very rude parking attendant. We were pulling into the parking lot following the arrow when a car coming the opposite way forced us to back up and enter the circular parking lot the wrong way. The parking a lot attendant told me that the next time... More

You can climb in straight from your boat, thus the "glassware" is compostable plastic. But the food is good, though I had better luck with the daily specials than the regular menu.

We stopped in here tonight for a little bar food but then ordered healthy...next time. I had the cold plate of slaw, shrimp, cucumbers and edamame. It was a better choice than the wings I was going to order. But wing night is Wednesday night, so we will come back. Hubby ordered the fried shrimp and scallops. Yum. Cold beer... More
