This place was so yummy we visited twice during our week in the OBX. We were staying in Frisco so it was convenient. That's how we found it. But then we ate the food. The flounder sandwich and the clam basket were our favorites! They...More

Read the good reviews but I can't agree. Pops would be good for some beers and snacks but don't come here for lunch. My wife's fried shrimp were good. My daughters mahi sandwich was nice. both were lightly battered and perfectly fried. My "homemade" fish...More

It was a great atmosphere, bar/restaurant but you eat with plastic utensils and on paper plates. The food was great and service was good. There aren't many tables so go early. I am not sure if staff was short because the one bartender handled the...More

Supposedly this is where the locals go, and it does have the local dive bar charm. The staff was nice and the place was clean. I ordered a chicken sandwich (little tired of seafood at this point) and it wasn't that great. Well seasoned and...More

We always make sure we visit Pop's on our yearly visit to the OBX, whether we stay in Hatteras or drive down for the day. It's a fun place and the food is always good.

Staff was excellent and food was great. The only down side is all the tables were around the actual bar not a big building and I felt like oh my gosh I brought my 2 year old to a bar.

Last year was the first year Pop's opened the restaurant across the street. It was so good so we went back this year. The flounder was good as was the shrimp. However DO NOT order the scallops as they are not the real thing. Horrible....More

The food isn't great, but they stay open late. And to be very specific, their food is not bad, it's just very unhealthy, but if you don't care about it, it's near paradise of a dive/simple bar.

If I were you, which I am not, I would phone and ask the management directly. Answers you get on TripAdvisor are likely to be nothing more than guesses (see above),
