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.

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

My husband had gone to the Hobbit last year and came home raving about how good it was and how he wanted to take me there. We couldn't go back before they closed for the season, so we decided to try again this summer. We were dissapointed, because we expecteda higher end restaurant experiance and did not receive it.

My wife and I decided to take a day trip to Ocean City which is a little over two hours away. We just wanted to stroll on the boardwalk, enjoy the gorgeous weather and have a nice dinner with a view. I searched for good restaurants in OC with a view and The Hobbit seemed to have very good reviews... More

I come from a restaurant family in Ocean City. We have dined at most restaurants in OC and Fenwick. The Hobbit Restaurant continues to be one of our frequent stops. The food and atmosphere are to be considered fine dining by OC standards. The restaurant is located at the lower level of a luxury condo building. High ceilings and large... More
