    Food is fabulous! Meatballs and the spinach dip are great apps and every pasta dish I’ve had is fresh, flavorful and cooked perfectly

    We enjoyed our work dinner event at Pop's. However there was some resistance in being able to split up the bill for a large party. It was a struggle but in the end it all worked out.

    Pop’s for Italian was very good! This was my first visit there and I will definitely be returning. The staff was friendly. Service was a little slow but they were very busy so that is to be expected. We were a group of five women and everyone loved their drinks and food. We ordered the mimosas tower which was $45 and includes three bottle of Prosecco. (Side note: to order the tower you need at least three people in your party.) I highly recommend! It was delicious. We all ordered brunch items and eat every bite! The portion sizes were appropriate for the price. I am looking forward to returning soon. (Side note: if you have more than five people in your party, they cannot split up the bill. Just something to be aware of.)

    This was our 3rd visit. The prior times were better. We arrived early at 5pm to take advantage of the Happy Hour before we ordered dinner, etc. In spite of the details on their website, including a menu, our waitress told us they don't have happy hour anymore. Prices for many both drinks and alcoholic drinks are on the high side now, but the quality is good. Service leaves room for improvement, and with the music on high, it was louder than it should have been.

    Yeahhhhh soooooo our server was trash. We went for my moms dinner and had 9 people at our table. they called to let us know that there will be a 20% gratitude because of the big party. Totally fine. HOWEVER, our server DID NOT EARN THIS TIP. He never asked what we wanted to drink. My mom and I got 2 cocktails and took both of them when there was still plenty of drink left and i even told him i wasn't finished with it. He was not friendly. Hardly said 2 words. was rushed the whole time. dropped a fork in the back of my hair. However, the food was amazing and everyone loved their meals. service- -3/10 food 8/10

    Our dinner was yummy. We know that the pizza comes out of a different kitchen but there was really a difference of time between when those arrived and when the rest of the meal came out. Our server was pretty good, knowledgeable. Did not like the Chardonnay choices but that's ok...

    Food is well prepared and arrived in a timely fashion. Description of some items on the are not 100% accurate…just ask your server. Need more economical wine choices. Server was attentive and provided many opinions on menu choices (some which altered our decisions).

    The service/ server was poor. She was very distracted and took our order very slowly … took the drink order and took her sweet time bringing each drink separately with several minutes in between. Never asked for a second drink. Took a lot of time to take the apps order and when she brought the Caprese said … oops it toppled over sorry!! The chicken picante was at best mediocre. Pizza was good but arrived much later then the pasta orders. At 7 pm they were all out of the specials btw Waitress said she did not have time to take a group picture of us … oh well!! 3/5 is probably the best we can rate them.

    We had brunch here, table of 10. And all of our food came out at very different times. Like 15 mins apart from each other. And some dishes weren’t cooked fully. Otherwise the food was good. Seems like they might be lacking kitchen staff right now

    General manager was extremely unprofessional. Was told that checks could be divided. When we arrived was told they could not. Finally a manager agreed fo split them when the General manager said no we don’t do that. Horrible customer service on his part. My group will not be returning. I understand many businesses are short staffed. This location was not. But the 15 minutes that the waitress had the over the top breakdown when we asked her to separate the bills was also unprofessional.

    Big fan of Pop’s. It’s great for groups, and food is consistently good. Unfortunately, I’ve had the same server twice, and he’s not bad but he’s also not good. There’s no table side manner. He clanks plates and utensils down and comes off rude.

    Overall the food was good however the pizza was undercooked. The middle of the crust was raw and gummy. They brought a replacement which was slightly better. It’s a thin crust pizza so it shouldn’t be too difficult to cook all the way through especially since they have a proper pizza oven. They’re a little skimpy on toppings as well. Our waiter took it upon himself to bring more jalapeños. Our waiter dropped a drink down my back and was very apologetic. The manager stopped by to see if I was okay which was a nice gesture. I asked for dry cleaning fee reimbursement which he graciously agreed to.

    Service was poor. Our food came out at all different times and the edges of the pizza were burnt and the center crust was under cooked He forgot to bring our drinks and we had to go to the bar for water refills. With this bad experience because we were a party of 8 we had to pay a 20% gratuity that was not earned.
