They had a gluten free menu. Excellent service. We had great gluten free crab cakes, Austrian lamb chops, and arty salad. Portions were a bit small.

We were here for a later dinner(8:30 pm), so we only had entrees, but they were all wonderful! Veal Pistachio was tender and tasty, the Tuna was perfectly cooked, the pork chop portion was huge! Definitely a great choice for a little more upscale option...More

This place has a fantastic view to go along with a delicious meal and very good service. We had the veal and Duck and both were very well prepared. The price was just a bit upscale but the meal was well worth what you pay...More

The Hobbit has it all. Great food, Great service. Great bay views with all the glass and mirrors. And when you arrive they make you feel like you're the best thing that happened to them all day.

Delicious with hearty portions. Appetizers can be split and are more than enough for two. Crab cakes were pure crab with no fillers. Rock fish was coming Ike's to perfection. Always a great choice.

The views from this restaurant are breathtaking. Staff is very friendly. Food was amazing to say the least. The duck breast was excellent and the lamb lollipops were great. Will definitely be going again next year on our family vacation.

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.
