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.

Better than expected

Hadn't been to the Hobbitt in sometime due to our last experience. The new facility is beautiful as was the sunset. The food was very good as was the service. Would go back again and sooner rather than late.

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). I... More

On a last time trip to OC before I move to Australia, I took my fiance (an Aussie) to The Hobbit. I hadn't been there in years, since going there with my mom at the old location. We were both thrilled with the whole experience. The view is, as others have said, gorgeous. (I would recommend taking sun glasses around... More

Rese at the Touch of Italy set up our itinerary for the week. She said The Hobbit was a MUST. And she was absolutely right! The Filet was the best cut of meat I have had in quite some time and prepared perfectly. Lamb chop app devine. There were so many things I wanted to order. Everyone was so pleased... More

As we considered where to eat during a late season Ocean City, MD getaway we were concerned; the offerings seemed to be standard at best. We were delighted, however, with The Hobbitt. Tucked away well north of the overwhelming Boardwalk area, this location near the northern end of the Coastal Highway allows the Hobbitt to offer beautiful sunset views over... More

The restaurant is beautifully laid out with lots of large windows to view the sunset on the water. In the past, anything I ate at this restaurant was great, so I was more than disappointed at the very dry and obviously overcooked crab cake and roasted potatoes. The fish dinner that my companion had was excellent and topped with a... More

This restaurant has wonderful ambiance, view, and food. Service was a little lacking. Higher prices are worth it.

We were married on the beach with a sunrise ceremony (just the two of us) and wanted a romantic dinner to complete out day with a sunset dinner. A friend knew someone who lives and works in Ocean City and recommended the Hobbit. What a beautiful dinner. I made reservations through Open Table and also emailed letting the restaurant know...

We made reservations for 9:30,we got there early and they seat us pretty fast, we ordered around 9:15, waitress was OK but didn't really check on us, so an hour later no food, people who sat down after us had eaten and leaving. Needless to say we left. Maybe the food was good I can't say, but be prepared for... More
