“Bad Service”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Poppy's doesn't need the business so the service is consistently bad. The last time we went, we waited over an hour for a bottle of wine. And we never got it. We haven't been back since.

“Sloppy at Poppy,s”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

One of the worst experiences of our lives on Dec 27, 2012. The management, so called Chef and staff should be eliminated. Only descent person there was Bill the bartender.

Our entre came out before our beverages and our salad never made it out. The boiled shrimp was the most over cooked tasteless thing I have put in my mouth. The waiter acted like it was his first day on the job. He didn't charge us for the shrimp and insisted that we order their key lime pie "on the house of course" which was the worse we had ever had. Ended up feeding to a dog out on the pier . Avoid this place at all cost. They make Captain D's look good.

“Rubbery Seafood and HIGH Prices”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We went to Poppy's a few years ago and while it was pricey it was so good. We went back June 2012 and the prices were HIGHER and the food was not good. The portion size was cut in half too. We had gotten one of the large seafood buckets years ago when we went back in June 2012 it was literally half the food and the price was higher (I still had a pic of the seafood bucket from 2010 on my phone - I sent the pic to a friend that loves seafood). MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT AND WILL NEVER GO BACK AGAIN. The seafood was rubbery and not good. We paid $150 for dinner for 4 that was not good.
Only good thing was the location overlooking the bay. Its such a nice spot to be in but the food was bad.

“Great Atmosphere - Small Portions”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

Poppy's at the Baytowne Wharf has great atmosphere, and the live entertainment at the adjoining establishment can be clearly heard throughout dinner. I opted for their special blackened lobster which was delicious. However for the money, the portion was quite small.
