Hobo's seems to be always updating their menu, and the chicken chipotle sandwich with sweet potato fries I had the other night was an excellent addition. The service is good, the atmosphere is nice and in the summer, nothing beats a cold beer out on their back patio - one of the few choices for dining al fresco in Muskegon.

On a drive back to Holland from Ludington we we're looking for a place to have a little late lunch. We found Hobo's Tavern on Trip Advisor and stopped. It was about 3 pm on a Saturday and we walked right in. Our server was very nice and we enjoyed a perch sandwich and a perch Reuben, one with onion... More

We had some of the best fish and potatoes at the Hobo. Parmesan cheese and crunchy bits covered the fish, hot and flaky on the inside. Seasoned fries were crisp and plentiful, and a fresh salad with a tasty dressing. Very long wait for a table, service was spotty, but on the whole, worth the wait. Not cheap and not... More

A group for work went to hobos, about ten, for lunch. We had made reservations and were seated promptly. The servers are always very attentive. I had grilled chicken salad. Greens were fresh and chicken tasty. Size was more than enough for lunch. Others in the group had cheese stuffed burgers. All liked them. Menu has variety- burgers, wraps, salads,... More

We had a bit of a wait, but it was well worth it! Great service and food! Atmosphere about as good as it gets along the lakeshore in the dead of winter!

The best bet at Hobo's is to sit at the bar and order the beef tenderloin special. It's only available at the bar and, if they get back to procuring the cuts they once used in this special, it's very good. (Of late they've been serving smaller medallions rather than a quality filet mignon cut. OK but a less special... More
