Plenty of parking. Can grab ice cream across the street after you eat. They have good pub fare at a reasonable price. Good place to grab a drink with friends.

Great Pub food. Something for everyone. Good prices and great service. Love to sit in the outdoor area when the weather is good.

Was looking for a place to catch some dinner on our way to Cortland this past weekend. I asked my husband if this was the place we went to a couple of years ago and he said yes, and you didn't like it. I said...well, it's getting 4 and 5 stars and says it's under new management so let's give it another try. We were very pleased. Although they could use more regular height tables as it bothers my back and legs to sit at the higher stools, the waitresses were quick and polite and the food was great. We shared a serving of the black beans and rice and I could have eaten that as my meal. Had just the right amount of spice. I got the Chicken Cordon Bleu Panini and my husband got the Nacho Burger. I brought about a third of my sandwich home as I ate half the rice and beans. Will definitely go back.More

It’s a must stop for us when we travel Thru Homer. Good food, friendly service and some of the best sangria around. Worth the stop.

This has been under new owners for the past year. The correct spelling and name of the restaurant is Hobo's 281 Bar & Grill. We went for Taco Tuesday that had $5 Margarita's. They were good. Our party of 4 ate Shrimp Mac & Cheese,...Ribs, Wings, and Cajun Shrimp Sandwich. Everyone really liked their food. Specifically, I had the Mac and Cheese which was amazing. This is a bar atmosphere. Our server was friendly and helpful. We have been here in the past, and we were not impressed at all. I would definitely return...the food is much better.More

This is a no-frills bar and grill and rarely disappoints. Their burgers are the best in the county, their wings are also top notch. For something different try the basket of fish, which is perch and is delicious. Service is always good, we love the...food, the atmosphere is friendly and laid back. When friends come from out of town, this is where I bring them.More

My husband and I moved to the area almost two years ago, and we've yet to find a place with the best burger in town....until we finally stumbled into Hobeau's one night off the recommendation of a coworker! This is not fine dining, y'all, but...the food is dang good. The fries are hand cut and served in very generous portions. The burger tastes homemade and really is the best burger in the area. Beers are cheap, too, and the service has been great every time we've eaten there. Just remember to bring cash!More

when the manager (she was passing out paychecks) comes in to pass around her four-week-old baby, you know you're someplace else... a truly quirky, woodsy type of "Cheers" where everybody knows their name, terrific caeser salad considering the atmosphere, great jambalaya and portabello mushroom sandwich,...bill just $26... takes cash only and does not open until 3 p.m.More
