Really don't want more people to find this gem because the lines are already too long --during the season especially Love the buffalo shrimp, shrimp quesadilla. Great salads. Appreciate the owners keep upgrading the restaurant to make the kind of tacky atmosphere cleaner and nicer

Location of the place was great, however, I was VERY disappointed. Food was fair, very overpriced for what we got. I would not recommend this place. I was disappointed that it had a Trip Advisor rating at all.

This is a very nice place right on the water. They have really good food and drinks (one of the best salads and wings I've had in Florida so far). Sometimes there's live music and always sports on tv. The crowd is older so it's definitely not for young people to "party". It's a good place to just hang out... More

I really enjoyed my lunch on the water. The Cajun-blackened shrimp on my Mediterranean salad was amazing.

Expect great food and drinks when you come to Pops Sunset Grill. All you can eat fish was my wifes choice and I had the mixed grill with lobster, shrimp, veggies and more. Quick, intelligent and fun service was a treat. They close down early so dont miss it. Food till 9 and the bar and band till 10pm.

I had the coconut shrimp and the clam chowder. Shrimp was excellent with tangy dipping sauce. Chowder was very good, but lukewarm. Our friends who also had it and had eaten there before, said it is almost always that way. Don't know if the Luke warm temp is planned or not. As my side I had edamame salad which was... More

We've being going to Pops for decades now. It's a fun family restaurant with good food and the best views of the water! Parking can be a pain, so we go during off hours. The food is good. The atmosphere (ultra casual waterfront) can't be beat.

We took our 9 year old son here for dinner while staying on Casey Key. We were pleasantly surprised how great the service was. Nick was the best waiter we've had in ages!!! Thanks again Nick! The restaurant is on the water (intercostal) and very large so there is plenty of seating. We got there at 8pm and we're seated... More

Come here off and on for years.. Great menu..a bit pricier than places we usually go...because we eat out almost everyday.. Very nice atmosphere on the water. If there is a wait, they are very organized and have a lot of tables so usually not long.. ASking for a table by water,, they will find one.. WE love the seafood
