“Soups, salads, sandwiches & great beer selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

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

“Good, simple food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

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.

“Comfort food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

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 The only problem is the decor - it is outdated and worn.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.

“The soup spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012 via mobile

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.
