Bilbo Baggins is a quirky place. Went here as part of an organized pub crawl. At first I thought that the decor would have been more oriented toward The Lord of Rings movies but it isn't ... Rather a lot of memorabilia from micro and craft breweries. That's OK. The pub has a great selection of beer ... Both on... More

I recently stopped here for a visit to the area with some family and was not disappointed. Service was really quite good, with extremely friendly and helpful waitstaff. The beer/drink list was great, with options from around the country, and the burger I had was definitely well above par. If you're tall, watch your head, but I'd definitely recommend this... More

Went there with my family during restaurant week to avoid crowds at King Str. What a disappointment !! Food was just eatable, service was terrible and the overall ambience was depressing. Dirt everywhere. Don't waste your money to this tourist trap. Stay away!!

We were in town visiting and stumbled in after we walked by the Pier. Very nice selection of food, friendly staff, and reasonable. Fun place and of course we are all "Hobbit" fans so enjoyed the trivia cards on the table.

I've tried this place a couple of times and just don't like it. Some people love it. So try it and use your own judgment. The place is dirty and there was dirt on the walls around the table, the windows were dirty and the floors were very dirty. The bathroom wasn't very clean or well kept. The food wasn't... More

Bilbo Baggins has very good food selections. Our favorite is the brazed pork loin with squash and seasons vegetables. The quiche's are all very good, as is a seafood ravioli made fresh. Breakfasts are also excellent. Where they are unique is in the selection of beers, ciders and yes many types of mead. We are gluten free, so the selection... More

We waited 15+ minutes without anyone coming to our table. Once she did, she informed us she was not our server; simply helping out "the other guy". We weren't given any water while we waited what would have been an eternity for the drinks we ordered while she rushed around trying to accommodate the already waiting tables. We wound up... More

Great menu and great atmosphere. As a vegetarian, I was happy to see the extent of food they offered. The veggie platter was excellent and plentiful. Everything our party ate was very good. Service was friendly and welcoming.

The last time wee ate here, we ate dinner. so that might explain a bit of the change in the ambiance. Our waiter was new and didn't know some of the details about the menu. The table we were at sat 5 people, but it was a bit tight. I would have preferred that the glasses and plates be removed... More
