Trip Advisor good ratings were right!

Okay, add us to the list. Excellent food. Will go there again. The fish tacos were delicious but had more heat than I expected so will try something else next time. My husband loved his seafood.

If I'm lucky enough to return to Key Largo, I'll eat here again. My son loved his burger and waffle fries. I liked my fish/shrimp/scallop combo but I'll try a "Catch of the Day" fish next time. The cracked conch appetizer was okay; I ordered it to find out what conch tastes like. It was deep-fried, slightly chewy with a... More

After reading some of the reviews – my husband and I decided to eat here during our stay in Key Largo. We arrived at 5 PM and were immediately seated. The food was great – appetizer of dolphin bites and an entrée of pan fried yellow snapper, followed by Keylime pie for dessert. Amazing taste! The wait staff was friendly... More

We stopped at Hobo's for dinner tonight. We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. I had a hobo ( fish ) sandwich. It was very tasty. My husband ordered the pan seared mahi and enjoyed it very much. The garlic bread is great too. We will definitely go back here before leaving Key Largo.

WE really enjoyed our meal here today. We had the onion loaf for an appetizer. They were light, crispy and outstanding! The burgers are outrageously good, and so was the special of the day a grouper sandwich. The service was great and the waitress was a hoot. The new owner stopped by for a visit. When we go snorkeling at... More

We were in the Keys on family vacation. Had heard a lot about this restaurant. Was very busy. Not a huge selection of foods. Good was average at best.

If this wasn't our favorite meal of the last two years in the Key Largo area, it's really close. We had driven by it many times. I just didn't like the sounds of the name, mostly. Kind of a bad reason not to try a restaurant, I know. Beginning to end, it was great, don't miss it. My wife's favorite... More

We sat and watched two tables seated after us be served their apps and food while waiting for our dinner. When we asked the server we were given a lame excuse as to why our food was not ready. After seeing two of our meals sit in the ready window for at least 7 minutes before all 5 entrees ready,... More
