Hobo's Cafe was highly recommended by friends, so we thought we'd try it. In my opinion, it was OK, but not a "must go" kind of place. I don't know that I would recommend it to friends visiting Key Largo. The atmosphere was ho hum - no great views from the back porch or window tables, the lighting was dim... More

We stopped in for lunch today and I picked the place based on its high reviews and it looked appealing to kids. It was good but we found a place with fresher fish for dinner. Desserts were good and service was great. Good place, not great.

We love to stop here on our way out of the keys to get that last taste of the island. It has never been bad! Easy in and out!

My husband and I spontaneously escaped to Key Largo on Sunday for a night away. We arrived to our hotel around noon on Sunday and our room was not going to be ready for another hour or two, so we decided to go have lunch at Hobo's we read about on Trip Advisor the night before. When we got there... More

Thank you Trip Advisor reviews! Our party if 6 was traveling thru the Florida Keys on our way to Key West and we pulled up Trip Advisor for recommendations on places to have lunch. My navigator selected The Hobo cafe based on reviews. We were not disappointed! The Hobo Cafe is right on Highway 1, so easy to find. When... More

This place has great Food. Key lime pie was the best. A local dive instructor recommended it. We really enjoyed our meal. Not a great view, but who cares. Eat here & go get a drink at the place with a view.

We spent 6 days in the Keys and Miami. This was our best meal by far! We talked about the conch appetizer, the smoked fish dip, the entrees and desserts for days! This is a great place to eat. The service was outstanding! Yummy Yummy Yummy

I was told to order anything with the key lime sauce and I'm so glad I did. I got the key lime fish sandwich. If you get the chance sit at the bar and ask for Chrissy. She's dynamite!

This is a place to stop! The food was excellent and in good portion. The service was on point and manager very personable. I would recommend this to anyone! We will eat here every time we are down in the Keys.

Hobo's used to be in a smaller location north of where it is now, and that place was awesome in terms of being comfortable, having great food, and just conveying a great feeling when being inside. The new location, which is a larger, more open room style location with outdoor seating, isn't as warm as it was before, BUT they... More
