Pop's is more a local bar with tables than a restaurant. They serve mostly beer but have hard liquor too. Whenever we're on Hatteras Island we stop for a meal at Pop's. Their seafood will not disappoint, especially the fried oysters and clams. The menu also offers other seafood dishes, burgers and speciality items (like a flounder plate last time we were there). There is a small deck with a picnic table out front for smokers. The wait staff is riendly and hard working. Very casual. Pleant of parking.

Was truly impressed with the quality of the food - from the hush puppies to the flounder bits to the fried oysters and the spiced shrimp. Service (Wendy) was excellent and candid - she told us exactly what was local and what wasn't. The place is really a bar, with a few tables around the edges of the room but is always loaded with locals. We frequent coastal Maine, and are very picky about our seafood - this place makes the grade.

On our travels to the Hatteras light station we stopped for seafood here. It looked like a hole in the wall kind of place but they serve delicious food here. Their cole slaw and homemade remoulade sauce are outstanding! Husband and I both ordered the bay scallops basket. Small scallops but tasty and their hush puppies were light yet crunchy on the outside. The waitresses are friendly and upbeat. Go there for lunch if you are on that part of the outer banks

After a day on the beach we were ready for some seafood. We tried to order the clam chowder, but they were out. Big disappointment because it is so good. We got the raw oysters instead and were very pleased with the taste and with how clean they were. The shrimp that we had steamed had that fresh taste and the fish bites were good, also. Our server was very attentive to our needs and checked to make sure everything was to our liking.

This is a gem in the rough! I was out cruising for carryout when I saw Pop's. The vehicles parked in the lot screamed "locals", which usually means good food and good prices. The steamed shrimp and the fried oysters were excellent, and the prices were very reasonable. My Volvo sedan and I got some curious stares, but what the hey! Would go again!
