I was looking for Conch. We tried Hobo's. I ordered a Conch basket and my wife ordered the Crab Cakes. Her Crab Cakes were some of the best we have had anywhere. My Conch fritters were ok, but I have had much better in the Caribbean. My wife had a Key Lime pie, very good. I blew it again ordering... More

We had seen signs for this place on our way up from Key West and thought we'd give it a try. The menu looked inviting and we were looking forward to grabbing a quick bite. We were met at the door by a friendly hostess who seated us quickly on the back patio. We were perusing the menus when our... More

Me and my family stopped by here on our way down to Key West. We were looking for a good place to eat so I look on my Trip Advisor app and found the restaurant to have good reviews. The restaurant is clean and modern. Our waitress was great. Very friendly staff. They offer a big menu with lots of... More

We came in after a long day snorkeling and kayaking... kids were tired and hungry. The staff was excellent and the food was even better!! My parents tried ahi tuna for the first time at my husband's challenge and everyone was floored by the amazing taste. My 5 year old are most of the tuna on my caesar salad. Even... More

This is a great place for either lunch or dinner. menu is varied and has something for everyone. I had the Shrimp and Clam basket, but my husband had the best dish- Key Lime Fish (Grouper) sandwich with coleslaw.

Went to Hobo's since we were staying in Key Largo and didn't want to drive too far - it was one of the top on the list - and for good reason. My SO had the seafood au gratin and I had the seafood penne rigata - amazing. The sauces were delicious and the seafood was cooked perfectly. I'd definitely... More

We went based on the excellent ratings on trip advisor but had an average experience. The burger was ordered medium but came out rare. When it was sent back it took awhile for them to cook a new burger so we didn't eat together. My fish sandwich was tasty (dolphin reuben) but the sweet potato fries that cost an up... More

I have written before but it is simply that good that I always come back each year, possibly twice or more during each week stay. Great food (blacked mahi quesadillas are my favorite) and reasonable prices. Always amazing service and food, they really know how to keep you coming back.

What great service! Great place for a fish and chip basket. Place was busy but was able to get a place at the bar. Worth the stop for fresh fish.

A must stop on your way to Key West. Menu has lots of options. Our group tried the soups, salads and shrimp, all were delicious! We also had to try the key lime pie and the candy walnut apple pie, neither should be missed. The staff is friendly and accommodating.
