This was a great dinner and they accommodated our group of 10 very well. The seafood pot was filled with shrimp, corn and lobster tails. Really a good value. Great taste

Lots of history in this place

Visited on a weeknight, place was busy. The kids had fried pickles which were very good, hubby and I had shrimp and lobster bisque, which needed salt, at the very least. My son got the grilled margherita pizza which he loved. Daughter had coconut shrimp which she said were good, but the "Caribbean" dipping sauce was mostly mayonnaise. Hubby had fried shrimp basket. I had shrimp and scallops basket. Seafood was good although the portion sizes were small, the baskets consisted mostly of fries. I had to search for the tiny scallops in my basket. Our server was super friendly, and our apps and meals came out quickly. But honestly we felt it was overpriced for what we got. The water views are fantastic, though. All in all, not a bad meal, but there are other places nearby where we'd rather spend our money.

This is my second time now dining at Pops. Our first visit was a 10 top, those are never easy to get right especially when you’re with older people. The servers accommodated to their every need and there was no mixup with their orders. the quality of food did not disappoint we ordered all different types of seafood and everyone enjoyed there meals. Let’s say there was nothing left to take home.
My most recent visit was my husband and I, we tried some different things this time such as the calamari, salmon and mahi. All delicious! They have fair prices for what they serve. The fish and calamari are my absolute favorite! A generous portion of calamari with yummy marinara sauce. The mahi season well and cooked to perfection.
This is a perfect place to eat regardless of the company you’re bringing and regardless of the occasion. You’ll find people of all ages enjoying a meal here.
We will be back!

My party of 6 ate at Pop’s while on vacation. It is definitely a local place and you wouldn’t see it if you weren’t looking for it. As appetizers we had the shrimp and lobster bisque as well as a dozen oysters. The oysters were reasonably priced. The bisque required several dashes of salt and tasted as if something were missing. Three people in our party ordered the shrimp and scallops which I thought were reasonably priced for the area. The shrimp and scallops were scrumptious. The batter was light and crispy. I tried the edamame salad and didn’t care for it but my husband liked it. Another person had the coconut shrimp and said they were good. The beer prices were steep. Our waitress was less than attentive but she did have quite a few tables. Overall, the food made up for the empty tea glasses.
