We stopped in Pop's Diner after the Sea Witch (last call!) I think the food is exactly what you would expect from a diner. The service was great and the food was good! We would go back!

Looking for a late night snack. Had half order of chili cheese fries and Apple pie à la mode for dessert. Both were really good. Cute little place, server was super friendly. Prices are very reasonable. Will be back for lunch.

Food was fresh and tasty at this great little diner. Best hush puppies I've ever had and the portions were more than generous. I'm from Mass and was in town for a wedding, boy I'll miss this place!
