Well, definite points awarded for a to-the-point, upfront moniker. Mr Hobson is a nautically themed restaurant and bar, found right on the beach. The menu too is nautical. Just as nautical as the digs. Luckily for the denizens of Port Melbourne (and countless tourists with deeper pockets than backpackers), Mr Hobson isn’t nautical enough to warrant tacky pirate or dolphin or fishing paraphernalia; this restaurant is classy, upmarket, and sophisticated. The furnishings are stylish, befitting the Port Melbourne clientele. The outdoor seating allows you to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Port Melbourne. Mr Hobson’s sibling is 3 Station Pier if that gives any explanation. Mr Hobson provides function venues for events of all sizes, all of which boast sweeping views of the bay, and the sunsets that go with a position right on the waterfront. It’s especially popular with weddings, launches, business dinners, and anniversaries. Mr Hobson is found at the very end of the 109 tram line in Port Melbourne, on Waterfront Place. Basically, it’s at the beginning of the pier and right on the beach. Melbourne city is a short drive away, as are St Kilda and Albert Park. With great food, lovely ambience and amazing location, it's no wonder why Mr Hobson rated high among the other restaurants in the area.
