“Always a safe bet!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

I love Hobo's. Always have. It's a great local spot to get a damn good fish sandwich (I get grilled mahi on a kaiser, not on the menu but they'll do it if you ask). Super friendly staff and I'm almost always guaranteed to run in to someone I haven't seen in a while (I snowbird so don't see my favorite locals for months on end) You won't be disappointed!

“Great locals restaurant in Key Largo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Good food, reasonable prices. Unfortunately, they don't have full bar service...just beer & wine. Great underwater video playing while you eat.

Great burgers and quick, courteous staff. Soup and fries were delicious. For an easy lunch this hit the spot.

“Was better last visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

This was our dinner spot tonight. The burgers were good, the chicken sandwich was a bit greasy. The broiled seafood lacked any taste and was on the cold side. I think I would try another "local" place next time. Bill for 4 with 2 beers and soup was $73.00 + tip.

“Hobo's a tradition for my group”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

I go to Key Largo a couple times a year to dive and Hobo's is always one of the restaurants we go to. I went to it back when it was next to Amy Slates on the Bay side. But it's been in a new building the last couple of years. Still same friendly folks and great food/atmosphere. I'll continue to make it one of the stops when we are in the Keys.
