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.

Great Views

Restaurant is definitely on the high end and usually worth it. The views are spectacular, try to book around sunset. Food is great, but service can sometimes feel rushed which is the only reason I can't give them a full five stars. Great for a special occasion.

Nice view, good food, good service. The cream of crab (or did they call it bisque?) was very good. The seafood dishes are the best things I've had here.

If you enjoy a delicious meal and are willing to pay for quality, the hobbit restaurant is a must. While it helps that we are a family of nerdy readers, the excellent flavors and gorgeous view from the dining room windows have universal appeal. Very clean even in the restroom and superb customer service.

The restaurant faces west with at least 1/2 the tables window side. Views were great but bring your sunglasses. The menu was fantastic with mouth watering dishes of salmon, seared tuna, mouth seafood medley, chicken that melts in your mouth, and a myriad of deserts to make you waddle out of the restaurant. A must for anyone in or near... More

We had dinner reservations and were seated by the window. Great views of the bay. Food was very good with a limited menu. Our server was attentive. Saturday night was crowded. The have a large wine selection. The menu is expensive and the restaurant is not equipped to handle small children.

The food is to die for! We started with the crab stack as an appetizer and were very pleased. My girlfriend ordered filet mignon and was very happy with her choice. I had the ahi tuna. It was fresh, covered with a unique cilantro sauce and was served over a tasty wasabi sauce. Easily one of the best tuna dishes... More

We've eaten at this wonderful restaurant several times this summer by ourselves as well as with our adult children and grandchildren. We are never disappointed. The food and service is topnotch, the décor is elegant modern, the all glass exterior walls overlook the bay and face the setting sun which adds to why this is one of the best places... More
