Our overall Ocean City dining experience was a hit and miss. The Hobbit Restaurant was definitely a hit. My wife and I were desperately looking for fine dining options, while on vacation in Ocean City, and we finally found a great one when we came...More

We visit the Hobbit on each trip to OC. They always great service and food. Many of their chairs are badly stained on the seat portion and need to be re-upholstered. We asked for other chairs, but they were all the same. Unsanitary for diners.

This restaurant was a wonderful experience, the food, service and atmosphere are all a solid 5. We ate at 7pm and got to see a beautiful sunset on top of everything else that was top notch. A must when you’re in Ocean City.

As a foodie, I find restaurants with a view do not spend money on a chef, but not true at The Hobbit. Five star from time we walked in to bartender, service, and food. Absolutely AMAZING.

Went here for an anniversary dinner. Started at the bar for pre-dinner drinks - nice happy hour prices. The views are gorgeous and perfect to watch the sunset. The food was outstanding as was the service. Our wine was delayed in arrival at dinner and...More

Our first time here, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Duck breast was fantastic (large chunks of duck); blackened rare filet scrumptious; and my fave: the strawberry-goat cheese dressed salad greens. The Hobbit is an upscale restaurant, and even though it’s “at the beach,” you’d fit...More

Probably the best restaurant in the Ocean City area. My wife and I had a wonderful meal; excellent swordfish tasted like it was just caught. Service was prompt and professional too. Highly recommended!

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.
