We visit the Hobbit on each trip to OC. They always great service and food. Many of their chairs are badly stained on the seat portion and need to be re-upholstered. We asked for other chairs, but they were all the same. Unsanitary for diners.More

This restaurant was a wonderful experience, the food, service and atmosphere are all a solid 5. We ate at 7pm and got to see a beautiful sunset on top of everything else that was top notch. A must when you’re in Ocean City.

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.
