Great deal for the Seafood Grill Platter. Great views of the water way and sunset. We went to the drum circle afterwards at the beach.

Thank BekyD

Greetings BekyD- Thanks for visiting Pops and sharing your nice comments on TA! I was at the Drum Circle a couple of weeks back- always an interesting experience and a "not to miss" when in the area. Pops is a perfect spot to stop before or after to enjoy a beverage or great meal! Come back and see us again, we look forward to seeing you ! Cheers, Don

We had a party of 15 show up, and they kindly accomodated. (They do not take reservations.) I had the Gator Ribs, Conch Fritters, Crab Cakes and Clam Chowder. The gator ribs were good by themselves. the sauce that they drizzle them with, and provide on the side is terrible. I think it is the sauce from a can of pork and beans with balsamic vinegar mixed in. The conch fritters were fantastic. The crab cakes were ok. I was expecting more considering they tout on the menu "a generous portion." They were small compared to other restaurants I've been, and were greasy, undercooked and overpriced. The clam chowder was the saving grace. Fresh, and tender clam pieces, with a light, creamy stock. The best clam chowder I've ever had.

My wife had the margarhita pizza. It was good, huge, and she enjoyed it. My first child had the chicken wrap. I am convinced the chicken was a leftover piece from earlier in the day, and then microwaved. It was terribly dry and rubbery, and not good at all. My other child had the salmon BLT. The sandwhich was good even though the salmon was very dry and overcooked.

Overall, we would return and try it again. Great view to watch the boats coming and going, and a nict atmosphere.

We had heard the food very good at Pops but, was always very crowded. 3 :30 pm was a great choice. Mahi mahi sandwich with lettuce/ tomato on a roll was cooked perfectly, thick and juicy, French fries were hot and fresh. Buffalo shrimp wrap was loaded with tasty shrimp, good cole slaw on the side and pickle. Choice of 3 sides for most sandwiches. We were quickly seated, choice of seating outside or in, both with water views. Service was quick and attentive. We will be back with friends for sure.

A typical beach bar with good food and plenty of great people watching. Pops is a classic, not to be missed.
