Hob Nob was a surprise. I just wish the wait staff was a little more friendly. Didn't know to just sit down because the wait staff didn't let you know. They were more worried about their conversations then us! I know John Taffner from Bar Rescue would flipped his lid.

I loved this place. Its very old school. Outside dinning, an old truck driver stop and greasy spoon. The burgers were delicious, as were the french fries. They added just the right amount of mustard and mayo. We all went back and ate there twice. I also tried their bacon cheese dog, which is cut in half with real cheese and wrapped in bacon. To die for. Its not healthy, but if you want an old fashioned, messy burger, its a great place to go. The staff is attentive and makes you feel right at home. Not the best ambiance( out doors), but its clean. Highly suggested.

The service was good, the food was good, but a little pricey. It's completely open air. It was as clean as it could be being outside. I'd go back.

You will be happy if you like burgers and fried food. Fun to sit outside with all the locals, tho the busy road is hard to ignore. My husband loves it here, me not so much!

The Hob Nob is an all time favorite restaurant of ours in North Sarasota. There's a wonderful consistency there that is unusual for a privately owned restaurant. The staff makes us feel very welcome and we are remembered from visit to visit. I worried when they got yuppified but the old faithful locals still showed up for the unlimited coffees and breakfast sandwiches to the gut filling burgers and beer or creamy luxurious milkshakes and the best onion rings anywhere. Not to mention the fresh special sandwiches that are tasty and filling. Disappointed, though, they took the steak sandwich off the menu!
