Excellent food, service, decor, and ambiance, featuring interesting and unexpected mixtures of local and Asian cuisines. When they say "hot" in describing the fried chicken you should take that very seriously, but the dish is unusual and delicious nonetheless. The noodle bowls are wonderful. And if you like Sazeracs, be sure to try the "Sazerac du Roi": it's a sophisticated and tasty take on the venerable New Orleans cocktail. This restaurant is highly recommended on all counts; don't miss it!

Started at the bar with a delicious Pika Pika, Maypops take on the margarita and was delighted. After proceeding to our table we enjoyed the delicious bread service, a must have for carb lovers. We then had the oysters and coconut salad with Bibb lettuce and cashews. We ordered the blue crab pasta which was absolutely amazing and unforgettable as well as the shrimp and grits, also yummy and the short ribs which were satisfactory. All around a great meal and will definitely come back.

Great experience on every level. Table was ready at our reservation time. Our server, Lindsey, was fantastic: Friendly, Personable, and Insightful. She guided our food tour and steered us into some extraordinary culinary delights. The scallop and blueberry small plate was an unexpected pairing that found fans among us. From the bread service to the duck ham to crawfish étoufée curry to egg yolk custard, we did not have a bad bite all night. Even the cocktails contain layers of surprise. Cannot recommend MayPop highly enough.

Different menu listed on Open Table versus what they have in restaurant.

Waiter broke a water bottle right behind my chair. Glass went everywhere. No one asked if our table
Was okay or if glass got on us.

The food was delicious. Not a huge menu, but our party has varied tastes and we all ordered something different and were delighted. Our common treat was the oyster dish. We ordered 1 and then 2 more.
Also, one person in our party has an allium allergy and because of the curry the chef and server steered us in the right direction. Thank you for an amazing and imaginative lunch!!!

They use canola (rapeseed oil) in ALL of their food. Cheapest, most unhealthy oil you can buy. Could not make us anything without canola (Canada Oil) produced from a toxic plant in Canada and sold to dumb Americans. Most European countries have banned it.

My husband and I had lunch there, and the goat curry was very good and good value. I had the shrimp and grits. It was good, but for the price was not worth it. There couldn’t have been an ounce and a half of shrimp. For17 or $18 it was not nearly the kind of dish that you would expect. It doesn’t come close to comparing to the pelican club’s quail and foie gras and grits that was an appetizer for only $12. There was an equivalent amount of food. May pops shrimp and grits was not ample enough to be considered an entrée. Service was slow. Particularly, given the fact that there were multiple levels of waitstaff. However, the wait staff were all very congenial. I do not recommend the shrimp and grits and I do notRecommend going there if you have any kind of time constraints.
