“Type of Ice House”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

Our server was super friendly. I had the oyster poor boy and my husband a salad. We were enjoying it when someone lit up a cigarette at the next table and puffed away. The food was okay but they need to get in the 21st century and not allow smoking. They have large garage doors that open so perhaps in the Spring, it would be bearable.

“Downgraded for Allowing Smoking”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

Had all you can eat fried oysters here once and most excellent blackened redfish on a second visit. Hush puppies and beer were good and so was the guacamole. Would eat here again for seafood in a minute. Make a good choice and you will be rewarded. Our waitress on Super Bowl Sunday was remarkably excellent and is worth a mention.

“A Treasure for Oysters! WONDERFUL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013

If you are not ready for a bar and restaurant with a rough atmosphere (and smoking at the bar), leave now. If you LOVE good, fresh, local seafood, the oyster's at Pop's are as good as or better than I have had anywhere! They were perfectly fried and fresh off the boat. This place is rough looking, but the service was excellent and the food was superb. Yes, superb.

“Comfy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2013

Its a good place to go for some snacks and appetizers, not really great for dinner. The place needs cleaning and the view of the men's room open door is terrible when you are eating.

“Friendly service, great oysters, good place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2012

We stopped in here after a day in the saddle, needing food and refreshment. We were not disappointed. We had an oyster and scallop appetizer that was delicious, then more oysters and a langoustine po-boy (yes, langoustine!). Everything was delicious and the portions were cetainly Texas-sized. We received all this from a friendly local fellow who was also tending bar. He was one of the best servers we have had in a long time: funny, full of local knowledge, saucing the regulars back as good as he got, and full of good menu suggestions. We definitely recommend and will return once our travels take us back there.
