An absolute escape from Ocean City. A place to indulge in inventive American cuisine and mouthwatering seafood while overlooking one of the most picturesque views you have ever laid eyes on. If you're looking to simply come in for some appetizers and a few cocktails our bartenders make great company at the bar that maintains the same breathtaking views. So next time you're wondering where to go to enjoy an exceptional meal, stop by The Hobbit and step into a classy, sleak, but most importantly comfortable world of dining excellence. We are located in the bottom floor of the Rivendell Condominium at 81st on the Bay and we offer our full menu daily beginning at 5 p.m.

Were we on hidden camera?

We dine at the Hobbit twice a year when we come down for golf/shopping. So we know the quality of the food and service. That is why the evening was so off - to the point that I was wondering if they were taping us to see how we would react. Started off by seating us at a table with... read more

Absolutely delicious and to die for. We are used to NY prices so the prices weren't too bad. Very classy and romantic

My first night was so good that I returned a second night and was equally as pleased. Excellent attentive staff and a very welcoming atmosphere. The filet melts in your mouth. Had the duck the 2nd night and it was fantastic. Good wine selection. Mary's delight for desert was excellent. The Hobbit would be a must visit on my next... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint! We live in Central PA and we cannot get seafood that tastes like this. Unfortunately it was foggy so we did not see a sunset but the restaurant would be a perfect place. I also would not take children as I feel it's a high end restaurant. My... More

The dinners were excellently prepared and the food was very high quality. The wine list was extensive and the prices on their high end wines were fairly reasonable. our waiter was very nice and the manager who approached our table was also a very personable and accommodating.

We just had dinner here tonight during Restaurant Week. For a Fix Prix of 3 selections, it was a great bargain for $35/person. My wife ordered the Calamari (very good with a sweet chili sauce which we shared), House Salad (big enough to share) and the Crab Cake accompanied with the daily veggies (Brussel sprouts, green beans and carrots).
