Unlike the other seafood restaurants around here, everything doesnt taste like it was fried in the same oil, the fries are not too greasy, best grilled chicken i've ever had, and amazing dessert selections. The staff was very efficient as well.

Questioned my choice of tater tots, and our waitress advised they were fresh battered and made in house...soooo glad we had them, best ever ! Pop's has only given us reason to return over our years visiting... More

I heard lots of good things about this place. The food was overpriced and the service was terrible. I don't plan to go back. Ever.

Just like a diner from the 50's. Very nicely decorated, and food was very good. Glad we went. I highly recommend the philly chicken sandwich. Service was attentive. There is pay parking in front, but you can usually find a free space across the street down the side street.
