The place is really good. I was there with one of my friends. The service was great. We made a reservation so when we got there we were seated immediately and the server was right there. Well, she was slow, messed up my order + charged my card twice (we had one bill), but all in all it was great.... More

I have eaten there many times and it was never bad. I get the crab cakes almost every time. All jumbo lump crab. The tuna tartare is a great appetizer. Service has always been good.

My husband and I decided to dine at Hobbit Restaurant on Saturday evening after a very rainy Car Show weekend. The restaurant is beautiful with incredible views, very classy and well appointed. The food was delicious starting with the calamari which was prepared perfectly, melt in your mouth with great dipping sauces. I ordered the crab cakes and I am... More

Three friends and I went to the Hobbit for early bird (must be seated by 5:45) on a Wednesday night. It is a very classy restaurant with views of the marshes on the bay side. Huge windows to view the sunset. The early birds were reasonably priced and included rolls and salad. I had the flat iron steak which was... More

This newly revamped restaurant is tastefully appointed, modern, clean lined, very high ceilings, large windows overlooked bay. I imagine a nice sunset view. My experience was dining with a group of 10 ladies. This can be a difficult task for any restaurant. Our waitress handled us perfectly. Starting with their homemade breads, delish! Very, very nice bar drinks to start.... More

My family recently had dinner here. The food was terrible. We sent back the Maryland crab soup because you could not taste it because it had so much salt in it, It was disgusting. The other cream based soup was also extremely salty. We just didn't eat it. The 4 fried oyster appetizer with bacon was cold and was tastless.... More

When my wife and I bought our second home in Ocean City 12 years ago our first local meal was at the Hobbit which then was a stand alone bayside restaurant with a nice view. We thought it good but shortly thereafter the Hobbit closed and building taken down to be replaced by a luxury condo. When the condo finally... More

Wonderful night out, enjoyed everything we had. Our party of 6 enjoyed everything we were served from the wine to the deserts. Trust in the opinion of your server, they know their product. This is more expensive than most other places in OC. They do take reservations so you don't need to wait and ay a hefty price too. If... More

the desserts were especially spectacular. The room design makes the conversational noise quite notable, and interferes with the otherwise lovely atmosphere.
