Despite the fact that we arrived at 9.45pm, we were welcomed and seated straight away for a table. The food was excellent (Louisiana Seafood Combo and two burgers cooked exactly as ordered). Compliments to the staff and kitchen! Restaurant was quite loud, but mostly due to a gentleman in high spirits at another table.

Stopped in to get lunch in between encounters at Dolphin Plus. Good food, servers seem to have a good sense of humor. We were in a hurry and they were very accommodating. Would recommend.

Had never read a review or heard a recommendation of this place, we were hungry so we stopped. And boy are we glad we did!! The food was fantastic, service was excellent and prices were good. We recommend the 'pie in a jar', perfect 'little dessert' of key lime pie.

We stopped here for a lunch on the way down to Islamorada, seeing that it was highly rated on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and our server took time to give us recommendations. I got a chicken sandwich that was the best I have ever had - very different from anything I had eaten before....

First time eating here and visited with friends who eat here frequently. Really good menu and lots for creative seafood dishes. Fast and friendly service. Reasonably price drinks. Clean and comfortable seating. Will eat here again soon.

Headed for lunch here on trip back to Miami from Key West after reading reviews and we weren't disappointed. The server was very knowledgable and eager to recommend dishes and the food we chose was all lovely. So glad we read reviews otherwise we would have driven straight past without realising it was worth stopping.

We brought our family here for dinner the other evening then returned on our own today for lunch. Hobo's never disappoints! The food here is consistently fresh and delicious with great service! So my new favorite dish here...the Key Lime Fish Sandwich. One word....YUM! A tender piece of mild fish...I'm guessing Mahi, prepared grilled with a light parmesan crust served... More
