Staff and Management
Pop's has been in operation for over 30 years, in what was originally Ubaneks Fish House and Pop's Tropigrill Restaurant. Since then, Pop's Sunset Grill has grown to become one of the most popular restaurants and night spots in the Venice area. We also believe that our success is firmly tied to the dedication and commitment from our managers and employees.
