Sauron's Rise!

The last time we visited felt welcoming and comfortable, like the Shire. Delicious food, excellent brews, and a welcoming bartender that really cared for the tavern. On our recent journey, Bilbo Baggins was a shell of its former self. The food was average pub fare. The bartender was polite but... read more

We had a 7PM Saturday reservation and our party of 4 was seated promptly. It was very busy as you would expect. We were seated upstairs which would be our future preference as downstairs was more of the bar area and very loud. Once seated upstairs we checked out the extensive beer menu. We all had other drinks and I... More

Beer selection is amazing. Food menu appears great, sadly the follow through leaves much to be desired. The chef needs to learn what salt is for, as in use it. We ordered the swordfish , it was so sweet you couldn't taste any of flavors. However, it was plated nicely. Atmosphere is nice, server was very attentative. I would receommend... More

Stopped in for late day dessert for kids and brews for mom and dad. Love the idea, love Lord of the Rings. Great ambiance, great beers, great desserts. Loved it and would like to go back for lunch or dinner. A really fun place!

The Pizza was excellent...order it with the sauce if you don't want to try it with just tomatoes. Entrees a little pricey, but so is everything in old town.

As avid Tolkein fans, the name of this place had us excited during our recent trip to the area. We wanted to visit Alexandria and were looking online for places to go. Once we saw this one, it was decided. We went on a Saturday night and got seated immediately at a table in the Green Dragon Pub area. The... More

We have visited this restaurant a few times during trips and love to sit and have a drink and appetizer, but their brunch is the thing we have enjoyed the most. I had the salmon and crab cake Benedict and my husband had the stuffed french toast the last time we visited. Both were delicious and the Bloody Mary's we... More

My husband and I went for the happy hour. One full page of wine but very few possibilities for glass of red or white. High price bad quality. The worst is the required 20% mandatory gratuity calculated on the full price! We used to go in different HH places and never experienced this practice. For me this is dishonest.

Above and beyond the name and decor for the restaurant, this is a great place for drinks. We were drawn to them because of the beer selection and they did not disappoint in that area. Plenty of good beers to choose from and the staff would let you try some of the beers before making your final selection which was... More
