We visit the Sarasota area several times a year. Our last trip, a couple of weeks ago, we discovered this hidden gem. First of all, the food is outstanding! My wife loved the coconut shrimp. I reluctantly ordered the fried shrimp since it can be hit or miss at restaurants. I was pleasant surprised at how delicious it was here.... More

Our meal was excellent as usual and our server (Justin) was very helpful and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend the Rum Runners, they are excellent. We always love returning to Pops.

Very good food. I had Muscles, very good. The Pina Coladas needed a bit of attention. I've had much better. My Grilled Shrimp were very good and my wife had Fish and Chips which she enjoyed. Very good friendly service. All in all a good reliable lunch stop. We'll be back for sure!

Thought it was going to be another trap, like one sees in most of FL. Nope, phoned in a to go order, picked it up at the inside bar and the food was good. The side order of black beans and rice was over priced and well, needed the salsa they provided with it, but the grouper sandwich made up... More

Tuesday evening special-- two fish tacos and Edamame salad (substituted for the black beans and rice) -- is a great deal for $7.50. Eating outside, overlooking the water is a perfect spot to enjoy a casual meal.
