Pop's is a local dive, been there for many years, and is where the local fishermen go to lie about what they caught that day. Décor is pool tables, and large fish pictures. Food is good, great hamburgers, good servings of catfish and oysters.

Consistently the best burger in town in my opinion. Bleu Cheese Bacon burger is what I always get......big fresh patty perfectly cooked every time I get it. The raw oysters that kept coming out of the kitchen were big juicy looking ones - must try.......Don't even try burgers in Rockport, come out to this great spot which is a friendly... More

A local establishment with pool tables, bar, etc. I’m sure that the majority of Pop’s business is done in the evenings, during games, etc. However, given the quality and cost of the food served, I wouldn’t recommend going out of your way to eat here. Since it was oyster season, I ordered the oyster platter which came with French fries... More

Everyone told us that if we wanted fried Oysters we needed to head to Pop's. We drove the extra miles across the bridge for a weekday lunch and left unimpressed. Yes, we expected a local dive. What we did not expect was surly service that expected us to order our meal at the first visit by the stern-faced waitstaff and... More

We had just had a long drive into Rockport and were exhausted. We set up our RV in Goose Island State Park and were just too tired and it was just too late to fix dinner ourselves. Pops was the closest place so we had a really good comforting dinner. My husband had all you can eat fried oysters and... More

Pops place always has excellent food and always has great service. In my opinion they have the best burgers in Rockport Fulton. The Captain Jack is my favorite. The onion Rings are spectacular. If you are in Lamar st and give them a try. You wont be disappointed

We were quite nervous the last time we ate there!! We felt cornered from all of the bikers that showed up. Needless to say we wont be eating there any more.
