We were disappointed with this place. We had lunch there and really it was just a pub meal that was a bit pricey . Nothing special or fancy, my wife had a glass of house red and that cost her $9, it wasn't what she wanted either. The waitress didn't bring any bread with the meal either. I would... read more

Just slightly off the main drag (2 blocks from King).Worth the walk. Pub-y atmosphere with a good selection of beer on draft. Great service, friendly waitstaff, and delicious dinner.

The sign on the front awning says “Global Cuisine”, which is an extremely loose definition of “cuisine” at the least or false advertising at worst. If you’re really interested in taking a tour of the beers of the world, then, yes, then this is your place. However, if you are even remotely interested in an enjoyable meal, skip it and... More

Good pizza but if you need a refill on your wine or water, you might as well forget about it. Our waitress was not attentive most of the time as I believe she had way too many tables to wait considering the lack of other servers. This could be a great place to go when they don't have many customers... More

Huge variety of beers from around the world. The Brunch menu is basically standard from week to week, but always great. My wife and I went with friends and had a great time. You will love this place.

I just went here for an early supper tonight, and I thought it was ok. I thought it was a little tacky to use plastic dipping sauce cups, but whatever. The food came out fast, and the waitstaff were nice. I'd probably ask for the salad dressing on the side next time. The mandarin chicken salad was drowning in it,... More

Decided to eat here our first night in Old Town - and what a great introduction! The décor and feel of the restaurant is cozy and peculiar, but very pleasant. The food was inventive and delicious - and the selection of beers was vast and eclectic. A good time was had by all on our adventure to Bilbo Baggins -... More

Excellent food! Great hobbit theme. Definitely not something to take small children to. We took our 5 year old son and he did fine. Not sure I would take any children younger than 5. A few couples got pretty cozy while we visited.

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 didn't have a strong beer knowledge or seem too interested... More
