    Given the pretty nice weather we have had now I am getting spring fever. Has anyone on here ever went to Pop-N-Docs in Decatur for food or drinks?

    I used to own a DJ business and that was one of my gigs. Try the Alaskan Walleye there

    Pop N Docs was opened by a friend of mine and his dad. My Buddy Kirk is a Doctor and his dad is Pop, thus Pop N Doc's

    I grew up spending all of my summers at Decatur on the river. My Grandparents and my Aunt and Uncle both had cabins. The absolute best of memories. That was all before Pop N Docs opened, when I was a kid that building was literally a dilapidated shack. I've been there a few times, good bar food!

    I think Pop A Docks is a Haitian restaurant where it's best not to criticize the food.

    (apologies to the non-geezers on the board...)

    I do believe they had to close a few times last year due to flooding. But were open the majority of the time.

    It wouldn't be a Decatur business if it didn't catch on fire at some point.
