We enjoyed dinner at the Hobbit last weekend. We were surprised and pleased at the very modern setting with the huge glass walls allowing a beautiful view of the marsh and bay. I had the veal pistachio, my husband and the other lady had the fillet and her husband the lamb. All meals were declared delicious. We shared a strawberry... More

There were 4 of us, we all enjoyed our dinner. Excellent food very nice surroundings. Three of us had the steak specials. We think next time that we'll try the early bird specials because they had a stuffed flounder that was only available for that early time period.

Loved this place. The food was fantastic. Everything cooked perfectly. We had the lamb lollipops which were delicious and a perfect size for the two of us. Filet mignon was excellent. Wine list is incredible. Seriously this place has it all in terms of amazing food and great ambiance!! We got there around 8 just in time for the sunset... More

Although The Hobbit was already highly rated, the dinner my wife and I had earlier this week greatly exceeded our expectations. Dinner and drinks were fantastic, service exceptional and the ambiance and view superb. Our fav in OC hands down.

Consistently good every time. The service and food is always superior. They make a killer martini w/blue cheese stuffed olives. Great to come and have a nice dinner and watch the sun set over the bay.

Tried all the other highly rated restaurants in local area and this beat them all. Starters: Lamb chops (great) and strawberry salad (wow). The salad was a creation and I'd eat it again any day. Highly recommended with variety of flavours. Mains: Catch of the day (delicious thick piece of fish with corn) and lobster mac n cheese (also very... More

This place has a nice bar and beautiful view. The staff goes out of their way to make you feel welcomed. The tuna stack is amazing. A little pricey, but the full glass wall overlooking the bay with beautiful sunset views can't be beat!

My wife chose The Hobbit for her birthday dinner. We hadn't been here for a few years, but enjoyed it in the past. It didn't disappoint! Drinks were excellent. Salad and soup plentiful and fresh. Main courses (I had swordfish, my wife had veal with pistachio nuts) were delicious and arrived at the table piping hot. Great bread and desserts.... More

Unassuming location under a condo building just off the main drag - but amazing once you step in the front door. Friendly staff escort you into airy room with floor to ceiling windows (probably 20 feet high) - all looking out across a marsh and bay to the west. Gorgeous view as the sun set, although many diners kept on... More

Visited our favorite restaurant in Ocean City. Fine dining from a great menu, great wine and perfect service by Tim. Garvey and his team never disappoint us, and we had a fantastic dinner enjoying great sunset views that can't be matched. Come here for fun great dinner, or special occasion.

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.
