Hobo's is a great little spot- don't let the name discourage you! We went on a Friday night on the way down to Key West at about 7:45 PM. It is opener later than many of the other restaurants in Key Largo, so that was one of the main reasons we stopped. It also isn't super expensive like so many... More

Hobo's is a family style place with terrific food. We had to wait a bit for a table, but it was well worth the wait. Everything we ordered was excellent -- hogfish, lobster quesadillas, and the cobb salad. Service was excellent as well, although the hostess at the front door was not as impressive as everyone else. Will definitely return!

My wife, son and I stopped in while vacationing in Tavernier over the Christmas holiday. Service was prompt and the food was OK. Nothing great, but not bad either. WE would return if back in the area.

My husband and I have been to the Keys quite a few times but this is the first time we have tried Hobo's Cafe. It was really good. Our server was very friendly and did a great job taking care of us. The rest of the staff was very friendly also and if Angelica was busy they stepped in to... More

Stopped in for lunch. Sat outside in the back on a nice patio. I had the lunch special buffalo chicken sandwich with bacon and cheese (big and awesome) and my wife had the Cheeseburger(also good). Waffle fries were very tasty. Service was great. Angelica works hard. Worth coming back.

The Mrs and I enjoyed a nice dinner at Hobo's during our visit to the Keys. Hogfish was delicious and the service was very good. Only reason it wasn't five stars was that we sat outside and the neighboring business was doing some power washing so it sounded like we were in a car wash. Would go back but would... More

Had a nice lunch on the outside patio. The menu had a variety of options and the service was prompt. Prices were reasonable for the area.
