The location of The Hobbit is fantastic - you are looking out at the bay, over marshes - just serene and lovely; you truly don't feel like you are in OC! The food was excellent - our party of 4 split a number of appetizers (probably everything on the menu) and all were good. Drinks were well made but incredibly... More

The restaurant is even better thanI remembered from years back. The location, view , surroundings made it a suburb evening. Sunset over the bay is worth the cost of the meal.

It is a very upscale restaurant with a great view but really just mediocre food. It is quite expensive and not kids friendly place. I wouldn't recommend this place for family with small children.

Terry, Thank you for taking the time to review The Hobbit. I'm sorry to hear that you were unaware we are not very kid friendly. We always try to accommodate as best we can but being a white tablecloth restaurant we don't get very many children. Could you please elaborate on the issues you had with the food? We take... More

This restaurant was so classy we were afraid we wouldn't fit in but the staff was so amazingly polite and very nice to us. The server was so sweet and asked how to sign to our deaf son. The food was just right, delicious and amazing. The drinks were classy and fresh! We don't go to a fancy place like... More

My husband and I went here while on vacation in early August. We did not have a reservation. There was no line, but we asked if we could sit at the bar. Great decision! Our bartender was fabulous! We both had amazing tasty drinks. I had a strawberry basil mojito and he had a honey whiskey drink. We each ordered... More

Went with another veteran bartender friend to have a late dinner. I had heard about The Hobbit for years, but had never tried it. I was completely impressed by the service.

We picked the Hobbit Restaurant because of the good reviews they got. It was a very nice dining experience. The waitstaff are very helpful and pleasant.
