Reviewer: dglasl

All-time favoritebeen going here for 17 years, never disappoints! Made friends with the locals, Brandi is awesome! Best steamed spiced shrimp & hush puppies! Last week they had tuna bites, I ordered rare, they were great! Hubby likes their fried shrimp.

A must place to stop. The food is great, the staff is great, the atmosphere is great, the beer is cold and always a new friend to be found there. Can't wait for our next visit.

First time visiting OBX and a local highly recommended Pop's for lunch. We tried the pick any three: Shrimp, scallops, and clams. Fresh flavors and the hush puppies were crispy on the outside, moist on the inside and full of yummy flavor. Scallops were lightly coated and so good. Large portion w/moderate price. Well worth it. We will be visiting again.

We tried Pop's for the first time this year and loved it so much we ate there twice. Great friendly service and the best seafood we ever had. Can't wait to go back next year.

Reviewer: Alexy

You can pay more but you won't finf better fried shrimp anywhere. Nice light breading that lets you taste the shrimp and good old strong coctail sauce. Also a good selection of beer ( bring back the Miller Highlife) Nice crowd for lunch and dinner it gets lively.

We have always gone to Pops while we're in Buxton every year....used to be smoky, but we still went....now, with the no smoking ban, it's wonderful. And the food is still great!

The Raw Oysters & the crab cakes were off the hook! Coldest beer in the OBX also!

Well I sold my house in PA and came down to the OBX to relax for the winter. Yea it gets slow around here this time of year but thats what I like. Stopped at the Light House Sports Bar and my girl friend and I were the only ones in there and actually we had to wait for the female bartender to get off her lazy @ss and give us a drink. Well we just shrugged it off as a bad night, so on the second trip to the Light House Sports Bar we got served and were the only one there at the time. I told her that I would love to invest down here and she turned very combatant with me and basically said we don't want you here! WELL we guzzled are drink and found Pops.

They are really nice laid back people and service is wonderful along with the food. AAA+++ So if you want good friendly people and STAY AWAY FROM THE SPORTS BAR.

We love Pops...go there every year. Except for the smoke, it's a great, fun place with great food & drinks. A real local atmosphere that makes you feel at home...couldn't go to the OBX without a night at Pops.

We love it here! Always feel at home and the staff makes you feel welcomed. It's always nice to meet and hear stories and ideas from the locals. Food is great, great cold beer. Never a dull moment when we go there.

Reviewer: Candy

We love Pop's!! Every time we visit HI, we stop in two or three times while we're there. It is definitely a local hang-out. The food is great and the beer is cold. My favs are the crab nuggets, oysters and shrimp (fried and steamed). The crab cake sandwich is really good too! The waitresses are some of the best on the island in my book. We'll continue to make Pop's a part of our vacation as long as it's open.

Not the pretiest place but the food is great and the prices reasonable. Only drawback is the limited menu but the seafood makes up for it.

Our all time fav--A must do for us--at least 5 times in 2 week visit. Still the best steamed shrimp on the island in my opinion. Crab legs were great as well as the pork bar b que.
