We went to Handsome Hobos for the 1st time last night with another couple and really enjoyed ourselves. We have been to (and really liked) Handsome Henrys and Hobos, so we thought we would try this place. It was a Saturday night at about 5:45 and we were seated immediately. The décor is colorful and eclectic. I do not know how else to describe it...this place definitely has a style all its own.

There were four of us and we all ordered pizzas. However, there is much more to the menu than pizza. Three of us had deep dish style and one ordered New York. We had house wine and it was OK. The Stella beer was good and they served Pepsi products. We ordered 2 appetizers: Calamari and Goat cheese - both were delicious.

The service was great, but they did mix up two of the pizzas and had to re-make them. To make up for it, they gave two of us a free dessert (a great selection). The desserts are HUGE and very, very tasty. There are plenty of vegetarian options as well as gluten free choices. I even noticed gluten free beer! This place was fun with friends, but I would also go with family and/or kids too.

If you like the food and ambiance of Hobos and Handsome Henrys, you will find yourself very pleased with the food and décor at Handsome Hobos. It was a hit with our group and we are already making plans to go back! Right now there is a Groupon for this restaurant and the deal is worth it!

We all met there for after work dinner and most of us had pizza or pasta, everyone was happy with there dinners. They have individual pizzas so everyone gets what they like on theirs. Service was great!!

We stopped by on the recommendation of a friend. At first glance we were concerned that is was "just" a pizzeria. We we pleasantly surprised from the moment we entered. Friendly staff, great ambience and decor and a very nice Italian food menu. Some innovative dishes along with so old favorites. Both our meals were very good!

On a hot summer evening, our group of 23 adults and teens decided to try the Handsome Hobo Pizzeria, located next to the Hobo Tavern in Muskegon. Although I haven't been to the Tavern, many in our party had and were very pleased with the food and the service so we decided to try the sister restaurant, The Handsome Hobo. Although we didn't have a reservation, a few of us arrived a few minutes early and requested seating for 23 adults on this Monday evening in July. The hostess and manager were very accommodating (and never broke a sweat over such a large group) and quickly seated us in a semi-private area. The friendly staff was quick to greet us and the rest of our party as soon as they arrived, both the adults at the larger bar-height table and the young adults next to us. The quality beer on tap and the red wine were delicious, as were the breadsticks, cheesy breadsticks, and goat cheese appetizer. (First try of the goat cheese - I'm in love!). We ordered over 8 pizzas and they arrived at our tables quickly and were so delicious, words cannot describe. We ordered a few gourmet pizzas including Hawaiian, Marguerite, Queen Marguerite (with Balsamic Vinaigrette drizzled on top), plus a few traditional pizzas.... YUMMY !! Our group was seated, served, and out in less than 1 1/2 hours, which is fantastic when you consider we did not have a reservation for such a large group, people arrived at different times, cocktails, appetizers, and pizzas were served. Yes, we will definitely visit again.... soon.
