Looks touristy so I was wary. Thus I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Excellent Caesar salad, delicious coconut shrimp. We arrived at noon on a Saturday and got one of the last 4 available tables. View is great: looks out on the intracoastal waterway with its parade of boats. Good service, reasonable prices.

This was a great place but just too busy and too loud for our tastes. We would go again the food was fine

Burgers were good. Also coleslaw and sweet potato fries. It did take 60 minutes for food to arrive but we were enjoying the water... More

I have avoided reviewing pops sunset grill for over a year because I wanted to really love this place. The location and ambiance are so on point it's ridiculous, it's located directly on the sound between Casey key and the main land the views are incredible and their large tables have fire pits built in them which is sooo cool....

Pops is one I'd go back to. Good food, good prices, good service. Eat inside or if weather permits. out. Outside if weather permits. Be seated by the water or in the tropical shade. Parking can be a challenge at the door but they will transport you from the rear lot by golf cart.
