Wow, we found a pub that has great food for meat eaters and vegetarians! Nice vibe and good service.

they had such a good selection of beers that i wanted to stay with it but the food was disappointing. interesting menu with salmon, lamb chops, seared ahi and some other good looking items but i eat that stuff with wine not beer. so to stay with beer my choices were a few pizzas (ended up getting the veggie and it was pretty blah) or a very plain sounding burger that was on the tapas menu. i would have liked to see some fish and chips, ribs, crab cakes or other choices that paired well with the wonderful beers they had. the fresh spring rolls were interesteing and included asparagus. my friend had the ahi and really enjoyed it and another had a full size dinner salad that was good. this is a pub with a pub atmosphere and although the menu is extensive its not what i was looking for. 4 of us ate with beers and 1 martini for almost $200 including tip.

Such a shame, Bilbo Baggins was a go to for a great burger and beer. We live just a few blocks away so always easy to stop by. Next time definitely no food just a beer at the bar - maybe. The burgers used to be served on english muffins and were great! This last time I was so looking forward to it. I ordered it medium and it came out almost still kicking and no english muffin. Our server was never smiled and just didn't want to be there. I asked her about the english muffin and she just shrugged it off.
Happy hour was posted as Mondays through Thursdays...nothing about in case of holiday this does not apply. Most bars keep it going. It will take a bit to go back for a while.

Go here for drinking, not for eating.
The food was greasy and seemed like it had been under a heat light for a while. My husband couldn't even take more than a couple bites of his fishy chowder. We left very disappointed. We have had other good experiences when we just go to the bar because of their immense beer selection so that is a better choice.

Middle earth as a theme seems a bit odd. The food was very good and the prices were not high. We had brunch and enjoyed ourselves. The problem is that with a name like Bilbo Baggins you kind of expect something different, something out of the ordinary - I think. None of that here. Overall OK.
