We thoroughly LOVED our lunch at Popeis. Not sure how we found out about it but it was definitely worth the trip. We were not sure we were actually at the spot when our GPS told us we were there, very unpretentious from the outside. Staff was amazing, bread was to die for. All of the seafood dishes we had were HUGE and delicious. Definitely recommended. Can not say enough great things about the service also. If you have an opportunity its a definite must see. Casual and relaxed environment. THANK YOU Popei's, it was a great experience!!!

Service was outstanding as was the food. I recommend the seafood bisque of which a bowl is almost a meal in itself.

Very disappointed w/ stuffed eggplant dish I ordered. Used to order that all the time, but sadly recipe was changed . It was really tasteless & nothing like in the past. The eggplant was tough & thickly breaded, Seafood was scarce & there was no ricotta or sauce on it as described on menu.

First time we tried this restaurant and we were happily surprised. The Popei's sampler we had as an appetizer was excellent and just right for two people. My wife had a flounder which was very fresh and cooked just right. I had one of their "overstuffed" lobsters and it was delicious. Even the fries were great, not greasy or too salty. Service was attentive and the price reasonable. We will be going back!

If you are looking for huge amounts of food at reasonable prices this is the place. Noisy, crowded seating. Nothing fancy and food is nothing beyond average .

Went for the "all you can eat crab legs", what a great experience all around! Great service by Dawn, the bus boys and the valet! The crab was delicious and we didn't have to wait long for our empty bowl to be refilled as the service was excellent! We added the linguini with white clam sauce for $3.99 for a special treat, so glad we did, it was delicious! Place was packed for a Wednesday night and they got us in and out without feeling rushed. We will dine again!

Everything was amazing for the price. The portions were more than adequate for their prices. They have complimentary valet, which was perfect because parking was not easy if done alone. The waitress Emily was attentive and very friendly. Everyone was friendly and the atmosphere was decent. If you love seafood, you'll love it here.

We are visiting from out of town and found Popei's on Open Table. I've got to say that the meal and experience was tremendous. I had lobster ravioli and my business partner had seared ahi and sesame crusted shrimp and both meals were delicious! The service was top-notch and very friendly. The next time I'm in town for work I know the first place I'll be stopping by. 5-star plus!

Was looking for a new seafood restaurant and found one. They had wide variety to chose from and "specials" for different nights. Tonight's Thursday was all you can eat shrimp offered in three different styles. Because I wasn't overly hunger I chose the mussels in a white wine broth for appetizer and red snapper for the main course. The sides which came with the snapper made it outstanding. My wife decided to have a salad and the stuff shrimp ( not one of the "special" ways for the shrimp - all you can eat offerings). Five large shrimp were more than enough to fill her up. Both of us were completely full, so no desert or coffee. The food was well prepared and tasty. Service was very good probably because it was late in the evening as this place has a very good reputation of being crowded. Only fault is parking is limited, but they do offer valet service. Definitely a return trip is warranted
