Stopped for lunch, so glad we did. Reasonable prices, really nice staff, very good food. I had fish sandwich special and wife has chicken parm. Also had key lime pie which was authentic and excellent. Recommend it.

This was our second visit here. We came back because it is out of this world. Excellent service, waitress was very friendly. The hot crab meat and artichoke dip was superb. My wife and I both had the key lime shrimp, with Italian herbs, tomatoes, scallions and asiago cheese served over rice pilaf. But by all means, do not leave... More

We are regulars of Hobo's & have reviewed it before. I am reviewing again as for the first time in the 15+ years we have eaten here (both locations) I had a problem with my meal. I ordered a fried shrimp basket which had been one of my favorite choices for years. It was delivered to me & the shrimp... More

We visited Hobo's Cafe for my husband's birthday. We both had Caesar salads before our meals- nice, large chips of fresh Parmesan cheese with a Caesar vinaigrette dressing. Light and very flavorful! I had fried shrimp for dinner. Large, butterfly shrimp with a light, crunchy, Panko breadcrumb coating...they were amazing on their own but a quick dip in the homemade... More

The VERY Best place we found for an amazing dinner! Every entree was worth trying...sauces were all homeade and fresh. Even the Key Lime Pie was made on site and AMAZING. We could have eaten here every night!

The food would likely have been much better had we not taken it out. Super helpful, and an order for six with all sorts of special requests was handled without mixup! Wish we had eaten in, though. Fries and sandwiches were a bit soggy. No mixed drinks, only beer and wine. But we all found something, so we didn't go... More

We have visited Hobo's many times over the last 10 or more years. One of the things we enjoyed was the atmosphere including lots of sports memorabilia that adorned the walls. When we visited this time, we discovered the walls were newly painted and most of the great atmosphere was gone. Apparently the owners changed over the last year. The... More

Every time I go down to the keys, I never leave without a trip to Hobo's Café. I have never had a bad meal here. The burgers are incredible and the wings are spot on. Don't forget to get an onion stack. I wish I lived in the Keys so I could go to Hobo's more often. It's a very... More

We caught and took to Hobo some fresh fish. They fixed in four different ways: crusted coconut, sauté, godfather style and blackened. They were all delicious but the crusted coconut got the first place. Josey was our server, she was very nice and helpful.

We ate here hoping the burgers would be good. We had a terrible burger the night before in another restaurant. We were in luck!!! the cheese was melted right, the bun was toasted, the beef was good - best burger we had during our stay in Key Largo. Liz was our server, she was attentive and happy in her work.
