Bilbo Baggins has a relaxedBilbo Baggins has a relaxed atmosphere, excellent food and smooth service. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived. Despite this, we were immediately acknowledged and seated in a short time. There was no wait for service at our table and the food and drink were excellent. This was our second Mother's Day brunch there and third visit to the restaurant over all. The whole family loves it!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day BrunchWe were seated at 11:30 for Mothers Day Brunch. Our party consisted of two couples, and a set of 20 month old twins. We were seated upstairs, to the right of the stairs, in the first dining room on the left, at a six top table. The service was quick, unobtrusive, helpful, and good with the kids, who were seated at the end of the table. The tables are somewhat close together, which allowed our children to interact with the family at the table next to us, and contributes to the noise-level grade.
The food was amazing. I had the Monte Kristo, my wife had the raise bread French toast, and our kids shared a pancake platter. My wife also had a side of bacon. When Bilbo Baggins brings you a side, they bring a plate of amazing bacon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly, family pub in AlexandriaA very relaxed, casual, neighborhood spot in downtown Alexandria. The food is good, beer and drinks up to par, and service was friendly. Inexpensive and not pretentious. We will definitely go back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a nice visitVery tasty. Howeve two dishes could have been beytter plated. The lamb chops and pork tenderloin were beautifully presented but needed larger plates to allow room for "disassembly" and cutting the meat.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI heard and read commentsI heard and read comments about poor service but that was not the case. We really enjoyed the food selected, service, and beverages.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat beer menu!We chose this kind of blindly because of the bear menu, and because it wasn't far from where we were staying in Alexandria. We were not disappointed!! The food was wonderful and the beer outstanding! The only negative was that it was noisy and it felt kind of cramped for space. It was a Saturday night and very crowded. However, I would go back again in a heartbeat.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood GemVery nice small restaurant 3 blocks from King Street the main street in Old Town Alexandria. Parking is easy to find in the evenings - we found street parking right in front of the restaurant at no charge unlike streets closer to King St. We got seated right away, service was quick and friendly, and the food came out fairly quickly and was very very tasty. My grilled portabello chicken was delicious topped with roasted portabello mushroom cap and sundried tomato tapenade.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWent to Bilbo's Saturday evening,Went to Bilbo's Saturday evening, had a reservation at 6:30 but got there a little early. We had no problem getting in ahead of time. We ate up stairs where there was plenty of room and rather quiet, the downstairs bar area was hopping. Overall, the food and service was very good, the beer and wine selection was quite extensive. Our entire party enjoyed our meals, although nothing really stood out except the cilantro fries. Overall a very enjoyable experience, would go there again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a fun little place,This is a fun little place, I wish we had cute restaurants like it in Prince William County.

As usual, Bilbo Baggins' beer list was impressive and had something for everyone's taste. Despite the Easter rush, service was quick and polite and the wait between being seated and being served very short. I would definitely recommend Bilbo Baggins to others, I have yet to be disappointed in the dozen or so times I have gone there.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to Bilbo Baggins forI went to Bilbo Baggins for brunch, their stuffed french toast is delicious!
