Description: 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.

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 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

We ate for the first time at the Hobbit end of Aug 2014. My husband, 26 yr old daughter, and 14 yr old son. We ended up here as we searched for a restaurant on line and the kids love the Hobbit movie. We were early diners, 5ish,, were seated immediately, by the kitchen where it was a bit noisy.... More

The food was just perfect. I tasted the crab soup and thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Our server, a young blonde, was very sweet and helpful.

Definitely an upscale restaurant in Ocean City. Pricey, but very good food and lovely menu. One of the best "dirty" martini's I've every had. Wonderful for a romantic dinner.

Good food and great service. A wee bit on the expensive side but worth it. Book early in season...it gets busy!

We have eaten at the Hobbit Restaurant in Ocean City, MD several times this summer and many times over these last several years and have found the food to be consistently good. The location is great for us as we can walk there from our apartment. It is now located on the ground floor of a large high rise condo... More

Went the last two Mother's Day and had a wonderful meal and stupendous view. The first year we were able to watch a fox out in the marsh which was really cool.

I took my friend to dinner to celebrate a new job and we had a wonderful time. The food was great, we had the clams casino, cream of crab, duck dinner and drunken chicken. We indulged so much there wasn't room for dessert! We were greeted warmly at the door and taken directly to our table. The view was beautiful... More
