I enjoyed my lunch which was as good as ever at Hobie's. My soup and salad left me enough for dinner. The owner went out of her way to make sure we were satisfied and taken care of.

The Plaza is under construction but they are open. Best place to eat for lunch. Amazing quality subs and soups. Several to choose from. Great pricing. Half sub, soup, and 20 oz drink for ten bucks and I couldn't eat it all.

I just went to Hobie's for the first time since my college days (mid 1990's.) I ordered the Southern Style pulled pork / cheddar / slaw sandwich. It was excellent and worth the wait. They were busy after the Michigan State / Michigan game. They are not Subway fast, but then again, their food is a cut above fast food.... More

You may be put off by the older decor inside but the food has the comfort appeal to it... Smells like a thanksgiving meal in there! I had the Greek salad... Average size for under $6 but smaller than subways salad for $5-6. Was worth it though, can't wait to go again to try a soup/sandwich combo

This is a great place for lunch. The wait is short and the food is simple and not greasy or heavy. Lots of soup options and several vegetaria options. Some local charm as well.

Hobie's has always had great soups and sandwiches. They taste fresh and homemade. The only problem is the decor - it is outdated and worn. I know the restaurant has a new owner now so I am hopeful for some sprucing up.

Always has a wide array of soups to choose from. Sandwiches are all pretty good (tried most of them). Check out their lunch combo where you get half a sandwich, soup, chips, and a drink for under 10 bucks.
