A nice laid back bar en restaurant that serves up prime rib, hearty entrees and sandwiches and always a nice special. In the evening you can relax to the piano. A comfortable and historic venue in Old Town.

My partner and I frequent Hobo's a few times a month. It's a relaxed, locals' place. Check out the happy hour menu where there are many dishes for under $10. Servings are generous. It's typical bar/pub food (think calamari, hummus, mac n cheese) but there...More

We went to Hobo's to meet up for the tour of the Portland Underground. While waiting we had a few drinks at the bar. Rusty was excellent and everyone was very friendly. Highly recommended for a quick drink and good company.

While waiting for our tour to start, the bartender fixed us up with drinks. I had a fizzy drink in a champagne style glass. We didn't order any food, so I can't attest to that, but I can say that the serve was good. Bathrooms...More

Looking around for a place to eat in Portland after 5 pm is a tough job. Everything seems to close down. Hobo's was open and had a very dark interior. After entering and checking out the menu, I found it was a delightful surprise. The...More
