“Bar Steak”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Hobo's has a very vibrant environment. The Bar Steak (tenderloin) is an exceptional value. The bartenders make awesome martinis and the wait staff is excellent! Great appetizers too.

There is a special that is served at the bar only. Steak and one side. The steak is awesome. Large screen TV's for sports viewing while you eat.

“Bring back the old Hobos”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

This is used to be a "go to" place for us in Muskegon but our last experience really brought us down.

The ribs I had were very dry and the salmon my wife had was also dry and did not taste very good.

The waitresses seemed more interested in getting their next shot from the bartender rather then checking on their customers.

I really do hope they get,it together again so that we can enjoy the old Hobos we once knew

“Very good all around experience.”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

We started our meal with the beach bread which was French bread topped w/ blue cheese and mozzarella. It was very good. For dinner we both had The Hobo ribs they were smokey and sweet. The pasta is also unbelievable. We will be back again for sure.

“Great menu”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Huge selection on the menu. Great prices and good food. On a Friday night they were able to seat a party of 8 with only a 30 minute wait (next time I'll know to use the call ahead seating). It was very crowded and noisy (tables uncomfortably close to each other and hard to have a conversation). Excellent "martinis". We ordered 3 apps: the beach bread (delicious and cheesy), the pretzels (tasty) and the tavern chips (everyones favorite). The hobo ground round was good (carrots undercooked), the cooper's special was a great deal and brats like you'd cook on the grill yourself, the hobo's pie was great (no leftovers), the ribs were very meaty and the sauce is sweet with a bit of a different spice to give it an original taste. The well done steak was dry (but he did order it well done and it was cooked to order). The service was a good as could be expected for a busy night (she was attentive but drinks went dry and the food did not come out at the same time for our party of 8). I'd recommend the restaurant but wouldn't go back unless it was an off time.
