Good for families.

We enjoyed our meal. Good kid's menu. The inside seems new and didn't have as much of the "Keys" feeling, but the food was very good. I especially enjoyed the fish quesadillas.

Enjoyed a much needed lunch/dinner after snorkeling in the Keys at Hobo's Cafe. Even though it was Father's Day, we didn't have a long wait, the food was delicious and server was very attentive. Sorry didn't have room for dessert- key lime pie looked delicious!

We stumbled upon this place while searching for Mrs. Macs kitchen (never made it there), and it was incredible! This place seemed like a 50/50 local and tourist place. I liked it because it wasn't a place that jacked up prices because it wasn't tourist oriented. It was hailed as a locals place. Anyway, I had the Ceviche and it... More

I have eaten here a few times in years past and have always been pleased, this time was even better. It was crowded but we were seated right away and our waitress was on the spot with drink orders and answered menu questions. I had a delicious IPA beer and cracked conch with a side of creamed spinach. I love... More

Our friends who live in Key Largo took us to Hobo's. We started with two appetizers... tuna nachos and hot crabmeat and artichoke dip. WOW! I had never had tuna nachos. They were awesome! I honestly cannot remember the name of our entrees... but they were delicious. I would definitely eat here again if I ever return to Key Largo.

Restaurant is pretty popular, we only had to wait about 5 minutes. Great friendly staff, portions are quite generous. Everything we ordered was right on..... tuna nachos, onion rings, fish caesar, seafood sampler, the ceviche and the kids neals. Tammy was our waitress, and she was so cool..... definately worth a stop.

Even though this restaurant is not on the water and not much atmosphere, the food is awesome with fresh seafood daily. Family owned and operated with great service for LOCALS and tourists alike. We happen to be LOCALS AND FREQUENT VISITORS.

Amazing little jewel in Key Largo with the most fresh seafood. The Conch Fritters are to die for! The seafood chowder is absolutely amazing. The prices are reasonably priced. Be prepared to wait for 1 hour to b seated. Its thst popular!! Well worth the wait.

I was running out of time to get some lunch before a teleconference that I needed to do while on vacation. We thought we would check the Hobo Cafe to see if they could get us out in 25 minutes. The manager made a herculean effort to quickly prepare and serve us some conch ceviche and a salad. They were... More
