Excellent in every way!

Decided to eat here because of Trip Advisor reviews and boy, were they ever right. I had the blackened seafood sampler with creamed spinach and scalloped potatoes. Everything was excellent. And the portions were very generous. My husband had chicken breast stuffed with crab meat and swooned... read more

I don't have much to say about Hobos. It was just ok. Not much to write about. Probably won't return.

Had a lovely dinner here. We started with the onion rings which were huge and OK, but I had the Sloppy Hobo Burger which was great (and not that sloppy actually).

Excellent Fresh Fish - I'd recommend the Fried Yellowtail - a local speciality. Great service from Liz too. Like many others have said, don't judge a book by its cover and be put off by the exterior. Thank you!

Went to this great restaurant named Hobo's Cafe in Key Largo last night - had the best SFPs I've had in a while. The service by waiter named Bill was very attentive, food was delicious and the portions would bring a stern nagging from my doc! Had a great time and the hostess made us feel like family. Highly recommended.

We found this restaurant after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and it turned out to be the best meal of our entire holiday, including when we went to Orlando. Don't be put off by the outside, it's really spacious inside and the food is great.

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the restaurant is a great place to eat. We stopped for lunch and were impressed by the food and the service. The menu is fresh and the portions are massive. Hobos does things a little different, so be prepared for some surprises. I had the shrimp po'boy. It was enough for... More
