We went for a birthday dinner for my husband. He got a new york strip and I got the perch. Both dinners were very good. Jessica was our server and she was very friendly and timely. We didn't have to ask for refills on our drinks. The food was very hot and the order accurate. The restaurant has an extensive... More

We were very happy with the food and service here. I had a BBQ chicken salad which was great and everyone else had awesome food too. Next time I will try the pork nachos that my daughter had. They were cheesy and yummy!

Made the mistake of trying to get a table on a Friday night at 7:00PM after golf w/Friends. It was cold and misty, and hostess offered us immediate seating if we ate outside. We were famished, so off we went. Our server was burned out from a long day, but she soldiered thru. The food came out amazingly quick and... More

Nice place. The menu is diverse and the food is simple. Nothing crazy complex, or too pompous. Just good food at a fair price. The drinks are very reasonably priced as well. Service was good. Not the best food I have ever had, but very good. I recommend the Philly cheese steak.

Nice place, always busy and A very nice menu. The kids like to go there and often they have music. You can eat inside or they have a nice patio that the kids like. They always have a special 6 oz. Filet that you can only get if you sit at the Bar so that leaves the Kis out. The... More

Met a friend that lives in the area. Busy Friday night. Food was excellent, but the best was our waitress. Wish I could remember her name. She was one of the finest we have ever had. She was positive about life and her smile and joy could be felt. Would definitely go back when in the area.

First visit on recommendation from hotel clerk. Very happy with meal and service. The fish was lightly fried and not greasy. Good portion. The coleslaw tasted fresh. My husband and daughter got the ribs and thought they were meaty and delicious with a nice BBQ sauce on top. Meal came out in a timely manner in a very crowded restaurant.... More

Went with family members. Easy to seat a group. Everything was good, plus they have local beers on tap. Top picks would be the perch and the burger.

good food, good service, good beer selection. the ability to go for a family meal or go alone and sit at the bar for a few drinks and watch a game is a tough task but Hobo's does a good job of providing a great atmosphere for most.

Thank Adam J
