We were determined to sit outdoors to "be safe". Our server recommended the Fish Fry since it was Friday.... the BEST battered fish I've ever had and our servers were proactive and constant with the beautifully fresh and delicious fillets. I've lived in both the...Pacific Northwest and New England for my entire life. In the future I'll make a special trip to Popi's when I am in the Tampa-St. Pete area. Thank you.More

Food is always too salty (this is our 2nd visit) thought it was too salty the first time. My husband decided to go back and try something else, but after you tell the waitress to tell the kitchen to reduce the sodium when placing your...order you would think they would consider it. Omg, the food was loaded with salt and was supposed to be broiled (shrimp w/ crab stuffing) but the breaded stuffing was so soggy and drowned in butter sauce! Couldn’t return it as it was to go. Not worth it, makes one think these type of restaurants don’t really care about the health of their customers, like there’s nothing one can do as it’s up to their cook who probably pre-mixes everything before an order is placed. Can’t give them a 5-star rating! Never again.More

We have never been to a Popi's until this experience. The have a bar, great food and service. I watched a waitress (server #326) I forget her name. She sat down with an elderly lady to go over the menu and help her make a...decision on what she wanted. This was very special. They run specials for meals and drinks. The food was very good. I had the liver and mashed potatoes. It was perfectly done and delicious. The portion sizes a very generous.More

I'd really pan this place except that they give you a lot of food for very cheap prices. So that probably earned them one more star than the food actually deserves. I ordered the daily special Chicken Cacciatore with Spaghetti. The chicken was tough and...the overall dish was tasteless. I'm not a salt person, but I had to smother it in salt and cheese to get anything resembling flavor. The plate was heaped with food, but I'd rather have less and something that's actually flavorful.More

The Chicken Parm sub was highly recommended by the waitress, but when ordered it was a greasy, salty mess. It felt like 6000 grams of sodium and that is no lie. It was caked with bread crumbs such that was really the star of the...show and not the chicken. The onion rings were great however! My wife ordered the Spinach pie and that was completely greasy, overcooked and it lacked flavor. The Greek salad was just OK. I would not recommend the food here. When bread crumbs and salt are maxed out all over food that is a bad recipe period. The atmosphere of the place was very nice, but the food was not.More

Two of shared mozzarella sticks for appetizers, and chicken wings and salad for dinner. The mozzarella sticks and sauce were good -- well prepared and served hot. The chicken wings were good. The salad was large but just average. I wouldn't order that again. Service...was very good. Prices were fair for this type of food.More

There were eight of us who went for dinner and needed a big table, and it was no problem for them to set us up. It's quite casual and friendly. Everyone liked what they ordered: burgers, open faced roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes, spinach...pie, burgers, Reuben sandwich, cobb salad. Good soup of the day. Staff was attentive without being overbearing. We will be happy to go back again.More

Popi's is a great place to eat no matter the location. The staff is always so helpful and accommodating. The breakfast selection is large and served any time. Just a fun, family restaurant.

I observed the staff rolling silverware without gloves. They were touching all our utinsels with bare hands, then touch cell phone, wipe table with towels and put on apron. That was unclean. Grossed is out. So even if the food or pastries were good, it...ruined our appetite. I watched them get ice using a cup they touched, without a scoop. I work for a restaurant and I know if the health Dept saw this it would be a violation. Makes you wonder what is going on in the kitchen.More
