There were five of us...a family together for the holidays looking for something good, something comfortable after attending the Christmas Tree lighting. We should have gone to...well anywhere else. I would guess that everything on our table, except for the lettuce, came from a frozen package. The pizza was tough and flavorless. The hamburger on a stale english muffin was... More

I hadn't eaten here in a few years. We took a friend to enjoy this place and was disappointed in both the menu and the food. While the French onion soup was still good, everything else was a touch soggy. Menu is just plain pub food now - nothing interesting. Server did a good job but the kitchen just didn't... More

I haven't been here in about three years. Took a friend who had just been sworn in nearby as a new citizen for a celebratory lunch, expecting something a little out of the ordinary. The service was good. One ding: we asked for a more full sugar caddy to go with our tea and ended up swapping one out ourselves... More

My boyfriend had spotted this place on Yelp awhile back (and as a huge LOTR fan) so we decided to spend his 22nd in here. Since we had never been before and it appeared upscale I made a reservation on open table. It was unnecessary. We walked in and were greeted by two girls who took us upstairs to sit.... More

In the movie, Bilbo says he's "going on an adventure" as he runs down the road to catch up with his friends. Well, going to this fine little pub is like going on a fun little adventure too. Walking in, you immediately sense the coziness and charm of this old but clean pub. Divided into two sections, the bar side... More

If you like to visit local dives and enjoy awesome food, this is the place for you. The restaurant is just 2 short blocks from the riverfront and the most popular tourist places in the city but it is quiet. I loved the old wooden stairs, floors and pub style decor. The food was so delicious and the coffee and... More

My wife and I were in Arlington on business but like Old Towne Alexandria much better plus we were looking for an interesting restaurant that had good food and a decent wine selection that was also on the Delta Skymiles Dining program. Bilbo Baggins definitely fit the bill. We sat in the bar and really didn’t eat much of a... More

Love everything about this place! Great happy hour 1/2 price beer & pizza. Cool little hidden gem just a block off the beaten path. Fantastic service!

Came back with the kiddos for some delicious fare on a beautiful day. We were the first customers, but it filled up shortly after we arrived. Service was exceedingly slow. Credit to the Server - he seemed to be working the entire room, but we were quickly forgotten as new customers came in. Food was good, but not amazing. The... More

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
