“Why go elsewhere?”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

When you go to Hatteras Island you should not be looking for fine dining. Go to Pops for succulent seafood prepared exactly right. Their pick three is a wonderful choice. There can be a fly problem and it is very small venue. But relax, go with the flow and enjoy fresh seafood. This is a local's favorite

Stopped for lunch and enjoyed their spicy shrimp BUT the wasabi shrimp and fish bites appetizers were a mouthful of bliss.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Stopped by in June when we were craving some fried seafood. Gobbled down an order of fried shrimp, my favorite seaside treat. Good beer at good prices, too. Kind of a dive bar-ish vibe, but not too run down. Great spot to grab lunch in Buxton.

“raw oysters, steamed shrimp and a sassy bartender”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Great food! The horseradish was outstanding. The bartender was sassy, fun, and very helpful. Feels like a locals spot. Don't be scared of by the dim lighting and shabby decor, the food was great. Not a family friendly establishment in my opinion.

“Local good eats in Buxton”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This is a great little dive in Buxton with some local flavor. It's mostly a bar with some tables around the outer walls, but it has some really good food. My son and I each had a dozen clams, which were super fresh and tasty. Give it a shot - you won't be sorry!
