The Hobbit Restaurant
Restaurants you may also like
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.
Daily 5:00 pm–10:00 pm
Enjoyed our anniversary dinner. The sun had already set, but the views must be awesome with all the glass windows and tiered seating. Food was outstanding and creative. Highly recommend.
Always awesome food, service and view. Best restaurant in Ocean City
The Hobbit was more then we expected. Waitress was excellent! Food was excellent! We will be back!
Food is always amazing! I wish they were open year round, they would be our go to place! We always bring visiting people here, the view is fantastic, the food is always fantastic, drinks are great, a good variety. Service is always great, attentive without being on top of you. We have been here 6-7 times since moving to the area 2.5 years ago. LOVE it!
Went for restaurant week and 3 course pre fix menu. Everything we had was outstanding with exception to the Duck Shepard's Pie. Normally have the duck breast which has always been fantastic. This had little to no duck under a lot of mashed potatoes. Shrimp toast, wedge salad, scallops, salmon were outstanding. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Get the daily catch. Great flavors. Chicken Chilli Relleno was very good.
Everything about this restaurant speaks to quality. The entire staff is courteous and friendly. Our server was phenomenal. The staff who refilled out water glasses were friendly. The manager, who got us a table when Open Table said there were none, was also very courteous and friendly.
And the food! Amazing. Every bite.
And, the view out the windows right around sunset cannot be described. We are in OC every October for my son's Beach Ultimate Frisbee tournament. Can't wait until next year. We will be back at the Hobbit for sure.
My friend and I were in Ocean City on vacation this week and remembered how much we liked The Hobbit Restaurant when we visited two years ago and we're anxious to go back! The food...we had crab cakes for our entrees and shared the fried green tomatoes appetizer which were yummy...and the service were excellent. Megan, our server, was very nice, friendly and attentive...as was the gentleman who refilled our water glasses and removed the used plates. The decor/layout of the restaurant is very nice and the view of the bay through the floor to ceiling windows is outstanding...and the ladies room was lovely and clean. I thought it was a nice touch that one of the hosts/hostesses comes out to open the door into the lobby as you're walking up the outside steps to enter and then again when you're leaving. I remember that from our visit in 2016 as well. We had a very lovely dining experience at The Hobbit!
One of our favorite restaurants in Ocean City. The food is incredibly good and prices are reasonable,gourmet food with family-style portions. The staff always has a warm welcome and ensures your dining experience is memorable.
Without out a doubt one of, if not, the best dining experience in Ocean City.
It’s really good
This was our first time here. And we will definitely go back. The entire experience was outstanding.
One of the Top 3 restaurants in Ocean City, MD. Best restaurant for elegant dining with a view.
Absolutely fantastic menu and fabulous execution of the food preparation! The view is certainluy worthwhile through the bayside full glass windows. The only problem is that the restaurant with its high ceilings and expansive glass windows in too noisy for a romantic gathering
The service was excellent, our servers, Emily and Matt made sure we didn't want for anything. None of the entrees really caught our fancy, however, so we ended up doing all appetizers - crab soup, shrimp toast, fried green tomatoes with crab, and crab cake - sensing a theme? - all were excellent. For dessert we shared the coconut pie, which was good but sweeter than we were expecting. All in all it was a wonderful experience and you cannot beat the views looking out over the bay.
Great food. Incredible service. Save room for dessert. Great for special occasions.
Have been here many times in the old days before the new construction, and loved the special touches which are not in the present location, but everything else is wonderful...I guess it loss some of the charm of the "hobbits". Don't ever remove the veal from the menu...it is wonderful!
We had a great table by the window for a beautiful sunset. Our meal was great from drinks to dessert and our waitress, Megan, was very attentive. We liked it very much!
The restaurant is expensive...but worth every dime. I've been there twice so far, and each time everything was amazing. The best meals I've ever eaten, the best cocktails I've ever drank. The view is outstanding, especially at sunset. The service is perfect, available, helpful, and friendly, without being annoying. The only thing I'd "complain" about is that it can get a little louder than I'd like, but it's a tradeoff to allow more people the amazing view, so I wouldn't change that either.
our go to restaurant in OC. took relatives who loved it
very nice atmosphere, food is just ok, service was good but employee's don't smile.
Great food and service as usual. All of the employees that work at The Hobbit are very accommodating and go beyond what is necessary to make sure your meal and experience is perfect.
Our night out was great. The food and the sunset views were fantastic.
We stumbled into Ocean City when they were under siege from H2O1. A wonderful escape from the hellish main drag. Great wine list, creative menu, delightful staff. The best Fried Green Tomatoes I ever had, a total home run!
Always love the Hobbitt—we take all of our out of town guests there.
As good as always. Great food, excellent service. Nice presentation of food. Well worth the dining experience.
Great service, good food, limited menu - should have more steak choices
Simply outstanding, the food, the atmosphere, the friendly service.
The noise level here is out of control. We could not hear our server explain the specials. The service was fine but the food was just average. I probably will not return.
Veiw of the bay at sunset excellent
The Hobbit has excellently prepared food in a beautiful atmosphere. There is nothing better than watching the sunset through the floor to ceiling windows.
Great experience. Iryna took good care of us. Service was excellent. Food superb beginning to end. Ambiance delightful and gorgeous views.
Very scenic spot overlooking the bay to the west. Beautiful sunset. My wife had the filet special with lobster mac n cheese. Very good. I had the pan seared swordfish special, very nicely done. Overall delicious meal.
Fabulous food, fabulous staff and fabulous ambience and view!!!
It was my fiancé birthday. They made us feel very speedil. Food delicious and ice cream bar dessert was the best dessert we ever had.
Limited menu, good food.
Swordfish was very nice.
Love this restaurant, ambiance, view of the bay, food and service were all outstanding. We went with friends to celebrate my husbands birthday...he ordered the crab cakes and said they were the best he ever had! That's saying a lot as we live in Maryland and he eats crab cakes everywhere we go. We shared two appetizers, calamari and the garlic spread both were excellent. The salmon was cooked to perfection and topped with a cucumber salad, looked and tasted wonderful. Everyone raved about the deserts. Great time.
The Hobbit is always a wonderful experience. From their friendly and professional wait staff to the delicious food (best crab cakes in OC), our family loves everything about The Hobbit. Great family owned restaurant.
