Pop's Sunset Grill Nokomis Restaurant Review

For details on Pop's Sunset Grill, click here.

Anonymous party of 5 had lunch at Pop's and rated the grouper Philly, chicken Philly, clam chowder, and crab cakes poor because, "awful looking, and was barely edible." and writes on April 29, 2007, "We thought we were doing well when we tasted our first margaritas while waiting for a table...then the waiter brought a second round and they tasted nothing like the first. very watered down...The clam chowder was also very watery. it looked like they were trying to stretch it out for a long Sunday afternoon. I just wanted a grilled grouper sandwich, but was told I could only get it fried, so I ordered the Grouper Philly...It looked like it wasn't even cooked and had a ton of bread with it. my boyfriend's chicken Philly was just as bad...all bread with little chicken and even less onions and peppers...Worst excuse for a Philly cheese ever...My aunt ordered crab cakes and they looked like black bricks...also very poor tasting...We were very disappointed to say the least and would never return...We should have gone to Sharky's and will next time...Just because you have a great location, it doesn't mean you can have a restaurant and pass that stuff off as food. By the way...we are locals...."

Martha Brewster ordered party of 4 ordered grouper Reuben, steamship pot, steamed garlic mussels, shrimp scampi and rated the food very good because, "it was inexpensive, a great variety of fresh fish and the view couldn't be beat. what a sunset! now i realize the justification for the name!" and writes on July 26, 2006, "pop's is one of the few remaining waterfront restaurants that have not closed and given way to the condos and high-rises. it may not be spotless and new but it is well worth the trip! the view is great, i can't believe the county cut up the old tree across the way that all the kids played in and jumped out of, but that's a whole other review. the food is very good and reasonably priced, they are not gouging prices like some other local waterfront places have done! i just can't say enough. and they have a new gift shop that is more in tune and reasonably priced then the previous one. great stuff! plus there is a fish market there. who knew?! go now folks, while it's off-season, it gets really packed when the "birds" come back."

Anonymous ordered fried fish, grouper, shrimp and rated the food very good because, "price, quantity, quality" and writes on June 28, 2004, "This place is what Margaritaville would be if Jimmy Buffett was still a regular Florida guy and not a corporation. Good, fresh seafood, great drinks, live music again (now that the county has shut up the complaining neighbors). Really a place for enjoying SW Florida weather, water, food, and drinks. Wish they could get Jin Morris to sing there again. He would be the perfect addition, since he is the Buffett for the regular guy."
