“good”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

It's a little off the beaten path and a little higher priced for what you get but the atmosphere is really cool and the food is really good.

“Fun place, great food”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We enjoyed a special occassion dinner here earlier this year. I think it was around Valentine's Day. I know you can visit the bar area downstairs for more bar food/drinks. We ate upstairs in the dining room and had an excellent meal. It's a little pricier than we usually like to pay, but the food was delicious. We look forward to returning!

“beer was great but not enough "pub food" choices to go with it”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

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.

“Not the same burger to go along with a happy hour that was not honored”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

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.
